About Me

Hi everybody!

I am Alberto and I come from the north-east of Italy, near Venice and Treviso.

I like sports and I play basketball with a small local team, I like hiking and fitness too.

I like to read books and, when it is possible, to travel.

I studied both Sports Science and Physiotherapy, at the Padua University and at the "G. D'Annunzio" Chieti - Pescara University respectively. I did that because I felt this disciplines are complementary to each other.

I am particularly interested in MSK, orthopaedic and sport physiotherapy, in pain science, and in Evidence Based Manual Therapy. I must say I have a special interest in respiratory physiotherapy, which comes from the time I spent in the Thoracic Surgery Unit for the development of my graduation thesis. I am keep on learning in this fields from courses... and physiopedia, of course.

In the past, I had the opportunity to train and work in places where I learned a lot and where I found friends, letting me have experiences for which I am grateful and proud. Luckily, they have been proud of me too sometimes.

As today, I am the owner of my private practice (called Be.St Physio) and have a collaboration with an elderly care facility.
