Are you looking for support in your physiotherapy professional development?

Welcome to Physio Development

Physio Development provides post-graduate level mentoring and support for Australian physiotherapists in musculoskeletal clinical settings.

My name is Luke McManus and I'm an APA Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist from Perth, Western Australia.

Physio Development was borne out of gratitude for the help and support I've received from many expert level teachers and clinicians in Australia. This is a small way I can give back to the profession.

I believe that to reach your potential as a physiotherapist, you need to have a clear vision and mission for your career.


The mission of Physio Development is to help clinicians answer the following questions:


What are you passionate about as a physiotherapist?

What do you want your career to look like in 12 months, 3 years, 5 years, 10 years and beyond?

What skills do you need to develop and who do you need to connect with to move in this direction and to achieve your goals?

What would you like to contribute to the profession as you progress in your profession?


A lot of physiotherapists may not be sure what their answers are to these questions.

I believe it's important to take time in your career to think about these bigger picture questions, as it will help shape the direction and specific tasks needed to work towards your own goals.

My passion for Physio Development is to help recent graduates (and more experienced clinicians) gain better clarity as to what a meaningful and successful career would look like for them.

This includes helping to develop professional skills (clinical and non-clinical) as well as personal skills and habits to achieve these goals.

Physio Development aims to provide support in developing calm, confident physiotherapists that enjoy the work we do.
