Daniel Zeunert

Daniel is a musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapist with a particular interest in back pain, running and return to sport following injury. All the way from Warrnambool in Victoria’s South-West, Daniel’s keen sporting background led him all the way to La Trobe University where he completed his Bachelor of Health Sciences and Masters of Physiotherapy in 2014. Since then, as well as working in private practice, he also has over 5 years’ experience working in rehabilitation and chronic pain.

In addition to a general interest in all sports, Daniel is addicted to running – even if he has to do it with a double pram and 2 kids these days. He hates not being able to move well and knows all too well the annoyance of being restricted by pain and is passionate about getting people back to exercise and sport. Daniel uses a variety of treatment approaches including exercise prescription, manual therapy, dry needling and pain education.

In his spare time Daniel may be spotted taking the kids out for an ice cream, watching Formula 1, and lamenting over the mighty Blues losing by not that much.
