Cam has always been highly interested in sport, with his passions in football, golf and snowboarding. He has experience working for semi-professional football teams as the head physiotherapist, which enabled him to gain a large understanding of the management of acute sporting injuries.

Cam has a keen interest in treating lower limb injuries, specifically knee, ankle and hip rehabilitation.
