Meet your Physio

Oliver Butler




Growing up in Colac, Oliver was surrounded by sport. Every waking moment was spent in a pair of runners, and there wasn't an activity he didn't try his hand at. Along with his combined interest in the medical field and passion for helping others, pursuing a career in Physiotherapy was an obvious choice.


Upon completing his degree at La Trobe University in 2016 his love for the ocean led him to Torquay. Oliver has been working as a Sports Physiotherapist in the Geelong and Surf Coast regions since, and is currently involved in Clinical Research with The University Of Melbourne. 


Currently he plays football with the Modewarre FNC, is a Surf Lifesaver at Wye River and fills his spare time trail running, swimming and surfing. Oliver has completed post graduate training of Level 2 Sports Physiotherapy, Movement Therapy, Mental Health First Aid, Pain Science and Dry Needling in order to compliment his holistic treatment methods.

How I can help you

Oliver combines specific manual therapy techniques with targeted home exercise programs in order to treat his clients. He likes to identify the source of the issue and develop a plan in order to manage and prevent further injury. He believes one of the most powerful tools a person can offer is knowledge and prides himself on helping educate his clients so they can understand their conditions and provide them the tools to achieve their health and fitness goals as soon as possible.
