ADPT PHYSIO AND ONLINE COACHING BY PHIL WHITE
Physiotherapy isn’t a treatment. It’s a profession where there are many options for how to achieve your goals.
It’s so common to hear friends, acquaintances and patients talk about how they have tried physio and it didn’t do much for them.
The challenge of private healthcare (not just physio) is that sometimes the incentives and realities of running a profitable business lead to decisions that are in the best interest of the bottom line rather than patient outcomes.
After spending a few years running a physical location, I have transitioned to go entirely online.
I will be doing "telehealth" online physio, but my main passion and aim is to work with people on sustainable, enjoyable and effective exercise programs via online programming and coaching.
Something more along the lines of what personal trainers or S&C coaches typically do with satisfyingly challenging training programs that work towards events or defined results.
With the scope of a physiotherapist with a sports science degree, I am able to tailor the coaching and programming to an audience with injury history, an eye for injury prevention and longevity.
The way I see it, online has some distinct advantages when it comes to helping my clients.
- It attracts the type of people who understand that the biggest changes take place when they take an active approach to care rather than hoping for someone else to "fix" them.
- There is scope to give people a level of service and access that is not feasible when limited by in-person consultations. Having the option for the following features below which would be prohibitively expensive if done in person. A blended approach may work and is something I am considering for the future when I am back in Sydney from October 2023
- Unlimited messaging
- Video feedback
- Fortnightly catch-up calls
- Educational content
- Accountability & support
- I can work with people from all over the country and the world. Note: There are limitations with online physiotherapy for certain parts of the world (USA and a few other countries) but online coaching is fine.

The Team (just me for now)
Phil White, DPT, BAppSc (Ex&SpSc), Dip. Remedial Massage.
My physio journey started as a patient. I played 11 years of Ultimate Frisbee at an international level. Unfortunately, I became known as “that injured guy” as I could never seem to get my body right. Despite near-endless treatments with varied health professionals.
This frustration sparked a passion in me to understand successful athletic performance.
Now that I have finished a Diploma of Remedial Massage, an Exercise and Sports Science Degree and a Doctor of Physiotherapy I have found my dream career. But, it wasn’t only the formal education that has informed the way I now work.
Throughout my university education, I have also kept up my own athletic pursuits. Beach volleyball, surfing, triathlons and plenty of time at the gym has given me personal experience in preparing my body for many different styles of sport.
During this time I have been very fortunate to work with and learn from incredible strength coaches. My time at Unity Gym and with Sebastian Oreb (AKA @AustralianStrengthCoach) at Base gym has given me a level of practical knowledge that I feel so many physios lack.
I spent six years working with the Greater Western Sydney Giants AFL club, where I met Nalesh. Between this and the many professional athletes I worked with in my clinic, I got to see first hand what is involved in elite sports injury rehab.
Being able to condense, clarify and pass on what I have learnt is endlessly fulfilling and energising.
I also have strong feelings about how physiotherapy should be taught and practised. As anyone who has listened to me rant on The Sound Of Movement Podcast would know. I was also very fortunate to be work on a project with Trish Wisbey – Roth with another podcast addressing this. You can find out more at The Physio Accelerator.
