Dr Chris Hasenkam

Chris is a Sport and Exercise Medicine registrar who is committed to assisting patients return to activity and maintain an active, healthy lifestyle.

Chris has experience working within elite sporting programs across AFL, cricket and rugby union. He currently works with Cricket Victoria and the Sydney Swans, and has toured to Fiji with the Wallaroos. He brings his knowledge and experience from these environments into the consulting room to assist people of all abilities to return to function and perform at their best.

Chris has a special interest in injuries of the upper limb, cricket, AFL, golf and persistent pain.

He completed his medical degree at the University of Melbourne, having completed an undergraduate degree in Occupational Therapy with Honours.

Chris is committed to ongoing professional development and frequently delivers presentations and participates in workshops to ‘spread the word’ of sport and exercise medicine and the importance of a functional and performance-based approach to treatment. He has multiple publications in peer reviewed journals, has a thesis investigating the language of pain and is currently developing a review of wrist pain in elite tennis players and golfers.

Away from clinic, Chris remains active and although his days as a state representative cricketer are well behind him, he enjoys the eternal struggle to lower his golf handicap, currently playing off scratch.

He takes great pride in his work and enjoys working together to get you back to your best and maintain a healthy, enjoyable life.
