Getting To Know Kaveh Hagh: Your Local Physiotherapist and Exercise Physiologist

Updated: May 5

Hello, and welcome to my blog! I’m Kaveh, a passionate Physiotherapist and Exercise Physiologist dedicated to helping individuals achieve their optimal physical well-being. In this post, I’d like to share a bit about myself, my skills, qualifications, and the journey that led me to where I am today.


Qualifications and experience:

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise and Sport Science from Australian Catholic University, Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology also from Australian Catholic University and a Doctor of Physiotherapy from Macquarie University.


I have worked professionally in Musculoskeletal, Neurological, Agreed Care, Sports Injury, and Chronic Disease management fields of Physiotherapy and Exercise physiology.


I completed over 1000 hours of placement throughout my studies. Working in private and public hospitals, spinal cord injury units, neurological and musculoskeletal rehab, ICU, trauma, aged care, outpatients, healthy populations and private practice.


My Professional Journey:

Growing up, my most memorable interactions with the health care sector were with Physiotherapists. I played soccer at a representative level and this kept me in and out of Physiotherapy clinics, thankfully I managed to avoid major injuries, yet even those brief interactions later proved to be all I would need to pursue this career.



I took the scenic route into Physiotherapy. I started with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise and Sport Science at the Australian Catholic University planning to transfer into Physiotherapy later. A stroke of fate led me to Exercise Physiology and I decided to apply for a master’s program, again at ACU, and despite a challenging application process…and not much time to do it in, I was accepted.


It turned out to be here that I would fall in love with health care. The exact moment was whilst on placement at a neurological health and well being centre named Burn Rubber Burn (later swallowed up by SCIA). I found myself surrounded by people, young and old, with the most severe and debilitating health conditions known to man. This was a life changing experience. Not only did it awaken a passion for helping people in need, but also an immense realisation of how grateful I should be for what I have. It really changed me.


After completing my master’s degree, and with my newfound sense of purpose, I was ready to start working professionally as an Exercise Physiologist. In a moment of consideration I was reminded, by my dad, of my initial goal of becoming a Physiotherapist. I non expectedly applied thinking it couldn’t hurt and was accepted first round into Macquarie University’s Doctor of Physiotherapy program.


Throughout the remainder of my studies, I continued to work as an Exercise Physiologist and then as a qualified Physiotherapist gaining valuable experience in various settings. In 2021, I started my own practice, Stand Sure Physiotherapy, where I fell in love with my career for a second time. Being fully accountable and in control of when, where, how and with who I work continues to bring out the best in me and really makes me love turning up to work.


Who am I outside of the clinic?:

I am a God fearing man. I was born in Iran and my family migrated here when I was 4. I am a husband to my lovely wife Daniella and father to my daughter Zahra.

I am a Brazilian Jiujitsu purple belt (at the time of writing this) and I hope to have my black belt one day!

Although I don’t get to do it as often as I’d like, I enjoy fishing and the whole process from hooking to cooking.

A car that makes me nostalgic is the old Honda Civic (my first car) - I would love to be able to one day buy and refurbish one into a suped up little pocket rocket.

I enjoy a good movie, especially when there is a good plot twist, and don’t mind an unhappy ending or unsolved mystery…yep I’m left dissatisfied by most movies these days.

I also hope to take up painting/sketching sometime soon.
