James COOPER

Physiotherapist, Specialist Strength & Conditioning Consultant

James joined SportsPhysioSA in 2022.

He has been involved in the fitness industry for more than 15 years as a personal trainer and strength & conditioning coach and more recently, as a physiotherapist. He has worked with the Adelaide Crows SANFL team, the North Adelaide Roosters and has coached gymnastics.

James has an undergraduate degree in Exercise & Sports Science and a Masters in Physiotherapy alongside Level 2 Strength & Conditioning accreditation.

James has slotted seamlessly into the SportsPhysioSA team and has a strong interest in musculo-skeletal physiotherapy and patient education. He is a ‘hands-on’ physiotherapist with a heavy bias towards exercise-based rehabilitation, utilising Pilates and gym-based programs.

We are pleased to have James head up our new Sports-Elite Section which can provide individually designed strength training programs for whatever is important for you: to improve sports performance, manage back pain or joint pain, become stronger or just maintain strength and function as you get older.
