About Adam Imer:
Director, Principal Physiotherapist and Olympian
After completing his undergraduate degree at Sydney University with 1st Class Honours, Adam went on to complete his 2nd degree, a post-graduate double Master Degree in Sports and Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy here on the Gold Coast at Griffith University. Adam has worked alongside, and gained knowledge from, several prominent high level Physiotherapists and Sports Physicians in Australia. This invaluable experience has resulted in the high level of practice that Adam delivers in the clinic. Adam has also undertaken Research Roles in Sports Physiotherapy, with publications in renowned Physiotherapy Journals.
With an extensive sporting background, Adam has a keen interest in the mechanical cause of injuries and his injury management strategies have an emphasis on rectifying the cause of the problem rather than solely treating the symptoms.
Adam utilises a “hands on” and functional approach to treatment, forming clinical diagnoses through thorough assessment, and using a combination of soft tissue release techniques, joint mobilizations, dry needling, proprioception, and Functional Strength and Conditioning retraining to reduce pain and restore function.
Prior to moving to the Gold Coast in 2012, Adam was Team Physio for the NSW Men’s U21’s hockey side, Australian and NSW Touch Football Teams, GPS Rugby and Rowing in association with The King’s School, and National Gymnastics Level competitions. On the Gold Coast, Adam works with a range of athletes including those involved with swimming, track and field, hockey, rugby, and soccer, from young kids through to weekend warriors and elite athletes on the World Stage.
Adam is also an elite hockey player himself, fortunate to play for the Brazilians Mens Hockey Team participating in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. Adam has also represented Australia at Junior International level and is currently part of the highly successful Queensland Blades Men’s hockey team. Away from work and the hockey fields, Adam enjoys his surfing on the Coast with family and friends.
