Hi, I’m Luke McManus and I'm a Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist from Perth, Western Australia.

Physio Development is a project borne out of gratitude for the incredible help I’ve received in building a meaningful and fulfilling physiotherapy career.

This is my way of sharing the little I know to give back to the profession.

The purpose of Physio Development is:

To help recent graduate (and more experienced) physiotherapists define their own successful career pathway and develop advanced clinical skills for private practice

To support private practice owners to nurture and retain their high-quality physiotherapists
