Alexander is an Australian trained physiotherapist who graduated from University of Melbourne in 2002. Since graduating, he has worked in several large private practices in Melbourne, with his practice primarily focused on rehabilitating people with shoulder, back, and neck disorders. He has also managed multidisciplinary pain management programs. In 2012, he moved to Hong Kong and has continued working clinically at PhysioCentral.

Alexander has also been involved in various elite sports teams in Australia and Hong Kong (VFL Northern Bullants; Hong Kong Rugby 7s; Hong Kong National Cricket teams; Hong Kong Davis Cup). He has also worked with individual elite athletes at the Hong Kong Sports Institute and at international sporting events (Tennis – ATP Challengers/Futures, ITF tournaments; Badminton – Hong Kong Super Series).

Driven by evidence-based practice, Alexander is the only private practice physiotherapist in Hong Kong where his clinical skills in back pain are underpinned by his current research activities. He is due to complete his PhD from La Trobe University (Australia), with the thesis investigating the conservative management of non-reducible discogenic low back pain. His research was part of the successful Specific Treatment of Problems of the Spine (STOPS) trials and has subsequently presented his research in international journals as well as at speaking engagements including the World Congress in Low Back and Pelvic Pain, ACSMS, IFOMPT, LifeCare Health, and Pinnacle Performance Hong Kong.
