Meet the Team


Steve Hanks (Physio)

Steve's been living in the Monaro region for over two years and is excited to share his experience with the region. He's been working as a Physiotherapist since 2013, working with world class athletes, Olympians and weekend warriors. He's discovered that frameworks based around treating the whole person are not only more effective for pain relief  but also give people long term resolution of symptoms. He's worked with many internationally acclaimed Physiotherapists such as Dr. LJ Lee, Carol Kennedy and Adjunct Professor Deb Treloar. 

Steve's passion for physiotherapy started at an early age, he's known the struggles of persistent pain and injury after suffering a significant head injury and crush fracture to his spine. He's since used evidence based approaches like manual therapy, the Pilates method, dry needling and mindfulness to help others who are in similar situations. 

Steve's particularly interested in neck, back, shoulder and foot injuries. He enjoys working with athletes but he's also drawn to complex and chronic conditions. 

Steve's post graduate training includes:

  • Andrew Huttons Integrated Dry Needling 1

  • Lyn Watson Shoulder Level 1

  • IMT Dry Needling Level 1

  • Sports Thorax - LJ Lee

  • Connect Therapy Parts 1, 2, 3 and 4 - LJ Lee

  • Clinical Pilates within ConnectTherapy

  • Foot, Neck, Thorax and Pelvis Drivers workshops within ConnectTherapy

  • Neuromeningeal Manipulation - Barral Institute

  • Visceral Manipulation 1 - Barral Institute

  • Listening Techniques - Barral Institute

  • Advanced Visceral Manipulation - The Brain (Jean-Pierre Barral Facilitator)

Steve acknowledges we are on the traditional territory of the First Nations and their land rights. He acknowledges his many teachers and mentors throughout his career.
