Hernan Pavez Zapata


Hernan Pavez Zapata

Hernan is a dedicated Physiotherapist with an extensive educational background. Hernan has gathered diverse professional experience in private practice, hospitals, and sports clubs, currently serving as the physiotherapist for Goulburn Valley Suns FC and South Melbourne SC. His expertise lies in sports rehabilitation, gym population, Olympic weightlifting, as well as a keen interest in lower limb and shoulder conditions.

Hernan's journey is not just professional, it's personal. Overcoming a broken wrist and successfully returning to Olympic weightlifting within nine months, he brings a unique understanding to his practice. His guiding philosophy centres on establishing clear goals and providing individualised support to navigate the challenges of rehabilitation. Hernan's coaching experience in Strength and Conditioning adds depth to his holistic approach.

What sets Hernan apart is his commitment to removing obstacles and inspiring others to surpass their perceived limitations. He believes that embracing physical challenges is key to feeling alive.

Beyond the realm of physiotherapy, Hernan enjoys being active by skate-joring and trail-running with his dog Ollie and going to the gym. He also likes to indulge in a good movie or pizza (with pineapple if the weather is right)
