The Clinic believes if you haven’t experienced the pain, stress, and frustration of injuries it is difficult to empathise with patients. We have run, cycled, climbed, adventure hiked, skied, rowed and dabbled in virtually every team sport imaginable. Even hurling!
In 1987 after two decades of running Bill became one of the founders of The Running Clinic (Aust) Pty Ltd. For 40 years he played hockey in Australia and overseas and coached to an international level. Bill has worked for 30 years with sporting footwear and runners.
Bill became the typical 1 in 3 runner after 15 years of calf muscle tears i.e. 1 run = 3 weeks rest! Since becoming an in-house patient he hasn’t had calf muscle or back pain for 25 years
