Gary Cleary


Having sustained injuries himself while playing various sports, Gearoid (Gary) became interested in pursuing physiotherapy from a young age. After graduating from the University of Ulster (Belfast, Ireland) in 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in Physiotherapy, he spent two years working in a range of sporting environments, from Gaelic football teams, to university and college rugby teams. He was also fortunate to have gained experience with a professional rugby club, where he learned first-hand the importance of teamwork and collaboration between various disciplines within a rehabilitation environment. In 2013 he decided to make the move to Australia.


Since then, while working in private practice, he has encountered a variety of patient groups and has enjoyed treating a variety of conditions.

He continually strives to sharpen his clinical skills through ongoing professional development and learning.


In his free time he's been known to watch whatever sport is on the TV, depending on the time of the year and season, and is even trying to get his head around cricket since arriving in Australia! Other than that, he's either getting out in the beautiful Aussie outdoors, found in a gym, or checking out new food recipes - as he fancies himself as a bit of a foodie!
