Want to learn more about what gets Nick C going? Then check out this fun & insightful interview below.
Why did you want to become a Physio?
I’ve always liked knowing how things work, which mostly resulted in me pulling apart my broken toys and any gadgets from around the house. Being so interested in sport meant I applied this to the body as well and really enjoyed it.
Your greatest Physio achievement has been…….
I think I’ll always remember one of my first patients as a student. A older gentleman had been having trouble with his hip for around 18 months and it got to the point he could barely walk. He had been seen by a variety of doctors and specialists, had every scan under the sun, and hadn’t gotten any results. I had him perform a couple of fairly targeted exercises and within 3 weeks he was able to walk and almost jog pain free.
What team(s) do you support?
Wests Tigers. I do follow Sydney FC but not as closely I do rugby league.
You try to relax by…..
Being with friends is always a good way for me to switch off. I do enjoy escaping in a good book; I like fast paced books like Matthew Reilly’s novels. Like most people I do enjoy an interesting TV series, Prison Break is probably my favourite.
What sports do you play?
Soccer and cricket. I do watch a lot of rugby league though, more than soccer and cricket.
If you had to be a biscuit which would you be?
I’d be a Monte Carlo, it’s a classic. Tastes good on its own or in hot chocolate, doesn’t fall apart when you dunk it. You can’t go wrong. My Nan always used to give me these as a kid so they hold sentimental value too.
Whats something a little different about you that not many people would know?
I play cricket for the same club that Steve and Mark Waugh did as juniors. Me and a team mate broke a record they held for the highest partnership. Also, I don’t drink coffee…or beer!
