physiotherapist kawana

Steven Bofinger

Steven has been a qualified physiotherapist for more than 25 years and for the past 20 years as the principal physiotherapist at Kawana Sportscare on the Sunshine Coast. Steven has a strong interest in sports injuries and has been involved with a number of regional, state and national level teams and athletes, particularly in the sports of rugby union, rugby league, cricket, water polo and surfing. Steven is currently the Head Physiotherapist for the Sunshine Coast Falcons Rugby League team and consultant physiotherapist to the Ocean Performance Centre.

Steven has a strong hands-on bias to his treatment and frequently utilises muscle energy and soft tissue release techniques. However, it is Steven’s excellent knowledge of biomechanics that guide his treatment, with the emphasis on addressing postural instability and muscle imbalance.

Main interests:

  • lower-limb and spinal biomechanics and their influence on overuse injuries
  • lower-back and pelvic dysfunction
  • acute knee and shoulder injuries.
