Matthew Hagerty

Senior Physiotherapist


Matt has been delivering high quality health care since graduating with a Masters degree in Physiotherapy from The University of Sydney. He is passionate about sports and this carries over into his work, having a special interest in the diagnosis and management of acute sports injuries. He has worked with a number of semi- professional sports teams in the past and including serving as the Head Physiotherapist role at the Parramatta Two Blues Rugby Club. As part of this role, Matt has developed an exceptional ability to devise specific and graded rehabilitation plans for athletes to achieve optimal outcomes in a timely nature.


Matt has been trained in the use of muscle energy technique for the lower back and pelvis and is well equipped to manage those niggling lower back complaints that just won’t respond to other treatment modalities. He believes in an emphasis on effective communication and patient centred care, allowing a mutual understanding of goals during the rehabilitation process ensuring all patients have a positive outcome and experience. During his career Matt has been a mentor to students from various universities, passing on his knowledge to the next generation of budding physio’s.
