Ross Lenssen

Ross Lenssen graduated from Auckland, New Zealand in 2008 and relocated to Melbourne to commence working with Lyn Watson at both Lifecare Prahran Sports Medicine (working 30hrs/wk) and The Avenue Physiotherapy Centre (10hrs/wk).

Ross commenced working with the special interest of managing neck and shoulder injuries. Ross has a close working relationship with Lyn Watson since early 2009.  Lyn has closely mentored Ross with regards to diagnosing and managing shoulder injuries. Ross is now a well established shoulder physiotherapist and is a member of SEPA (shoulder & elbow physiotherapists australasia).

Ross has facilitated Lyn with her PhD research and tutors regularly at the courses she teachers. As of 2014, Ross has also started teaching some of the level 1 shoulder courses. He has also taught at the APA conference in Melbourne 2013 and on the APA sports level 2 courses in Melbourne 2013 and 2014. 

Through working with Lyn, Ross has developed relationships with the shoulder surgeons at the Melbourne Orthopedic Group.  Ross manages many of Lyn Watson's clients, particularly when she is away teaching or is temporarily unavailable. 

Ross has commenced his own professional doctorate in 2013 and is currently working on completing a systematic review.

Ross is also involved in assisting another PhD student from La Trobe University in a randomized controlled trial about multidirectional instability of the shoulder.
