Jude Spiers completed his Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy at the University of Alberta in 1995. He started work in a sports PT clinic in Calgary, AB before relocating to his native New Zealand. There he established himself as the team physiotherapist for the professional National Rugby League team, the Vodafone Warriors. During his tenure, he completed his Post-Graduate Diploma in Health Science – Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy in 2003 at AUT University in Auckland. He continued in his role with the Warriors as well as provided consultant services at several physiotherapy clinics. Jude also instructed at the Bay of Plenty Secondary Schools Association, the Bay of Plenty Polytechnic, the University of Auckland and AUT University. He was an invited speaker at the Sport Medicine New Zealand National Conference in 2010, and presented on “Adductor Injury Rehabilitation Strategies.” While Jude specializes in high performance training and rehabilitation, he applies these same principles to the recreational athlete as well as to the non-sporting population.
Jude is currently on sabbatical from the Kinsmen Sports Centre Physical Therapy Clinic. He continues to travel the world in search of new adventures and encourages all his past clients to consult one of his colleagues at the Clinic.
