Meet your Physio

Adrian Deans

Senior Physiotherapist



Adrian grew up in Melbourne and moved to the Surfcoast in 1995. Initially in Anglesea where he had holidayed since a child, he moved to Bellbrae with his wife Tanya (also a physio) to raise their family. Now he lives in Highton with two almost adult children, one studying paramedicine at University and the other at Geelong Lutheran College. 


Adrian loves surfing, waterskiing and boating with his family.  He still owns and rides his horses at Bellbrae, but his main love is snow sports.  During the winter Adrian spends weekends skiing and snowboarding at Falls Creek and Mt Hotham. He tries to stay physically fit while balancing a busy work load.


After graduating from LaTrobe University in 1995 Adrian started practicing at Barwon Health in Orthopaedic, Neurological, Amputee and Spinal Rehabilitation. He then managed the Geelong Hydrotherapy Centre for 5 years, and ran clinical education in Hydrotherapy both locally and in New Zealand.

Adrian commenced working in sports physiotherapy with Corio Bay Sports Medicine Centre in 1996, initially part time, before working half time in their Colac Clinic for 5 years. This gave him great experience with a rural community providing much needed care to Dairy farmers, Timber workers and other heavy industry injuries.

In 2001 Adrian purchased both Torquay Physiotherapy Clinic and Ocean Grove Physiotherapy Clinics where he has managed and worked ever since. He loves working in two fantastic communities and over the years has helped thousands of locals with their sporting and spinal injuries. Being a father of two boys and watching them grow up through Football, Basketball, Skating, Surfing and Snow sports Adrian is passionate about helping junior athletes reach their potential and recover faster.

How I can help you

Adrian is a strong manual therapist with years of experience. He believes in finding the cause of the issue rather than just treating the pain, and helping people with functional ways to prevent the pain from returning.  He believes a few good simple exercises are more effective than reams of exercises that patients will never do. Adrian uses manipulation, mobilisation, massage, Dry Needling and taping together with functional exercises to get you the best result.
