Mr Boyd Fleming

Physiotherapist
My name is Boyd Fleming and I’m a Physiotherapist for Allied Health Services Australia. My interest in Physiotherapy originally stemmed during my time at high school from my passion for movement sciences and strong sporting background. I completed my Bachelor of Exercise Science and Master of Physiotherapy degrees at Griffith University here on the Gold Coast and during this time as a student Physiotherapist I worked as a Sports Trainer for the Gold Coast City Football Club Women’s NPL team. I have particular interests in the areas of Musculoskeletal, Orthopaedic and Cardiorespiratory.
