Chris Tandy

Director | Physiotherapist

Why did you become a Physiotherapist?
Well I wanted to become an Airforce Pilot but an injury of my own changed my mind! I am thank-ful for this as I now love what I do helping people get back to doing what they love!

Where did you study?
I completed my Bachelor of Physiotherapy and Masters of Sports Physiotherapy at La Trobe University in Melbourne.

Interesting things you have done in your career?
I have worked in a number of areas and locations.
On graduating I spent an 18 month period working in the Public Health Sector working across surgical wards and even a small stint in the intensive care unit (ICU). My love of sport drove me to a career in the Private Sector and Sporting Organisations.

I have been fortunate to work with Essendon FC with their VFL team and more recently as a team Physio for Melbourne Storm Rugby League Club. A highlight was winning the premiership in my first year in 2017 and during the COVID Hub year in 2020.

What do you do to keep fit?
I enjoy running. Having bombed out doing a Marathon in 2016 running 4Hours and 5 minutes here in Melbourne, I have pencilled in 2022 as my next challenge to complete the Melbourne Marathon in under 3Hours + 30mins

Favourite thing to do outside of work?
Spending time with my family- Wife Laura and Son Elliot and our crazy Hungarian Viszla Gracie.

Team Leader | Senior Physiotherapist

Why Did you become a physiotherapist
I had a positive experience with a physio when I was younger. After suffering my first real injury I was rehabbed back to playing in a junior grand final (that we won!) So from here I always wanted to help people get back to doing the things they love.

Where did you study?
I completed my bachelor of physiotherapy studies at the Australian Catholic University in Brisbane, Master of Sports Physiotherapy at La Trobe university and I’m currently completing my Master of Strength and Conditioning at Edith Cowan University (ECU).

Interesting things you’ve done in your career

Since finishing my undergraduate degree I’ve mainly worked in private practice helping those in the general population return to the things they love. Over the past two years I have started to work closely with the active/athletic population in helping them return to their chosen sport after injury.
Outside of the private clinic I was given the opportunity to be the Queensland Hockey under 15 physiotherapist in 2016 & 2017. In 2018 I was appointed as The Head Physiotherapist for the Victorian Thunderbolts junior Rugby League academy programs. This opportunity allowed me to engage with and learn from the senior physiotherapists at the Melbourne Storm.
For the past two years I have taken up a new challenge as the Head Physiotherapist for the Northern Bullants VFL team.

What do you do to keep fit
I enjoy strength and resistance training. I try to train in the gym 3 to 4 times per week. If I have time I try and run once a week as well.
Away from physical exercise I also practice a lot of mindfulness and meditation for mental health fitness.

Favourite thing to do outside of work
I love watching sport, travelling and going to live music gigs with my girlfriend and friends.

Why did you want to become a Physiotherapist?
Having experienced an ACL injury of my own, I became interested in the profession and fell in love with helping people get back to what they love

Interesting things you’ve done in your career?
Funny enough I haven’t been a Physiotherapist for long! My first career was as an Electrician before I decided to go back and complete further studies! So you might say I am good at sparking up a good conversation and will bring the energy as your Physiotherapist! HAHA

What do you do to keep fit?
I participate regularly in Powerlifting training and will be having my first competitive lift in 2022!

Favourite thing to do outside of work
I love my heavy metal music and spending time with my partner and fur babies!
