Chris Purcell

With over 17 years working exclusively in private practice physiotherapy, Chris brings a wealth of experience to his role as leader of the clinical team at Out of the Box Physiotherapy. Chris holds level 1 and level 2 sports physiotherapy qualifications and has worked in a variety of sporting settings including Rugby League, Rugby Union, Hockey, Swimming, Volleyball and Gymnastics.

Prior to becoming a physiotherapist, Chris completed a Bachelor of Human Movement Studies (Exercise Physiology) which provides him with excellent exercise prescription skills and is a key reason why the clinic has its very own onsite gym.

Away from physiotherapy, Chris is currently completing his MBA through the QUT graduate school of business and is enjoying developing his leadership and management skills. During his career, Chris has been a clinical educator for students from both Griffith University and The University of Queensland and really enjoys helping his team become the best clinicians they can be.

Chris enjoys all aspects of private practice physiotherapy and has a particular interest in neck pain and headaches along with foot and ankle problems although at this stage of his career there is now not much that Chris hasn't seen.

Chris is also really passionate about helping people to exercise and establish safe and healthy routines and will work hard to find exercise solutions for all ages and abilities.
