The Basketball Physio was developed in 2014 by Physiotherapists Dean Little and David Taylor who share a passion for injury prevention and sports performance. This passion took Dean and David to the United States of America for 6 months to enhance their knowledge and protocols. They joined Stanford’s Sports Medicine Department and were privileged to spend time with the Golden State Warriors. Dean and David had the opportunity to share knowledge and work alongside some of the world’s leading practitioners and Olympic, NFL, NBA and MLS athletes.

 Now back home in Melbourne, the boys wish to provide a World-Class service to basketballers of all levels.
