Nathan Ashby – APA Physiotherapist


I deeply believe in the benefits that hands on treatment combined with an exercise program in an educated and empowered client can provide. Empowering clients to understand what they can do to manage their own concerns is a key element of my treatments.


I began study as a physiotherapist following experience as a client myself. Since the beginning of my career in North Lakes in 2016 I have always sought out high quality professional development courses to advance my understanding of rehabilitation and how to provide better outcomes for my clients. 

I always aim to assist in answering all your questions and concerns to ensure you have a thorough understanding of your presentation as well as how we can work together to enhance your recovery.


Since beginning work with The Lakes FC in late 2017, working with athletes to enhance their performance and prevent injuries has become a key area of interest of mine. This has led me to develop a special interest in a range of sport specific management strategies, in particular load management and the return to training and return to sport process.


Clinically, my area of interest largely lies with ACL injuries and how to optimise rehabilitation be it either with non-surgical or surgical management pathways.
