Kevin Lieberthal - Physiotherapist

After completing a Bachelor of Physiotherapy (Honours) at The University of Melbourne in 2001, I have had a significant change in my sporting involvement. After countless years running around most of Melbourne's squash courts, I switched to triathlon and more recently to marathon and ultra-marathon running.

As my passion for running grew, memories of watching Bruce Fordyce winning the Comrades Marathon enticed me to travel to South Africa to complete the gruelling 89km's of hills.

Thus far I have completed 7 marathons and 3 Ultra marathons, having recently completed the Berlin Marathon in September 2010. Having run a down comrades marathon, I aim to complete the up run in the future.

I am also currently studying a Masters in Exercise Science with the primary focus on the impact of Achilles Tendinopathy on lower limb function. Blending my Physiotherapy knowledge, and further study in biomechanics, I aim to align both the body and the mechanics of my two favourite sporting activities; running and cycling.

After working in sports medicine practises I joined Equilibria in 2005.  Dynamic Performance is currently operating from within Equilibria.
