Chris Batten has a bachelor of health science in physiotherapy and a diploma in remedial massage therapy. My focus areas of physiotherapy are musculoskeletal injury treatment, and strength rehabilitation.
I have a special interest in the treatment of back pain and shoulder disorders. My treatments are based around identifying dysfunction and treating this through education, hands on therapy and strength rehabilitation.
