Alex Lowen

Physiotherapist – North Shore Lab

Education:
Alex graduated from AUT in 2014 with a Bachelors of Health Science (Physiotherapy). He added to his toolbox by studying dry needling, muscle balance and movement assessments, the minds influence on healing, and elderly falls prevention.

Experience:
Alex has been based in several different environments including a crossfit/ Olympic lifting gym, high school, Institute of Golf and general musculoskeletal clinics. 
Alex has worked with prems rugby teams and high school 1st XV’s, North Harbour womans rugby 15s, North Harbour Womans Rugby 7’s, NZ indoor volleyball nationals, New Zealand beach volleyball pro tour, New Zealand cheerleading nationals, NZ National league canoe polo and National aged group football.

Professional views and special interests:
“You are what you do repeatedly”.
Alex believes in creating independence. Close supervision, evidence based practice, manual therapy, hard work and a can-do attitude is the recipe! Alex loves delving into the complex and tough cases. Multifaceted and holistic treatment is Alex’s approach. He also has an interest in the opposite end of the spectrum in “aged care”, post retirement strength and conditioning, physical optimization, balance and falls prevention.

Make sure you bring a joke in for Alex! 

Outside of the Lab:
Alex has competed in a variety of sports, including snowboarding, waterpolo, martial arts, football, swimming, volleyball, lawn bowls, tug of war and coin rugby. He has dedicated most of his time over the last 8 years to the most obscure of them all, canoepolo.
Alex has been playing canoepolo for 9 years, competing in 3 Oceania championships, 3 World Championships and 1 world games for the New Zealand Paddle Blacks. In 2018 Alex competed in the canoepolo Super league in Sao xing, China.
Alex is a fanatical marvel movie watcher, coffee brewer and loves all dogs!
