Connor Mckay - Physiotherapists and Athelete
Please mention NQTA if you book an appointment
As an accomplished endurance athlete, Connor McKay is a firm believer in using functional exercise to prevent injuries, improve performance and support rehabilitation.
Graduating from James Cook University in 2017 with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy and gaining further qualifications as a Level 1 Sports Trainer with Advanced Taping; Connor is also an elite triathlete and is ranked equal first in the world in the IRONMAN 70.3 distance. He finished 10th at the World Championships in 2016 as the youngest competitor in the field.
Connor’s passion for sport and for helping others to achieve their goals — from junior athletes to adults seeking to overcome injury — has seen him working with a range of bodies and conditions. Connor supported elite level triathletes at Hamilton Island’s inaugural Super League Triathlon in 2017, but also enjoys providing gait analysis and footwear prescription to locals, from active children through to the Australian Army.
Drawing on his own athletic background, Connor is particularly interested in addressing paediatric sporting injuries. After confronting overuse injuries in triathlon and rowing as a teenager, he’s keen to combine his professional knowledge and personal experience to help prevent and treat them in other young people involved in sport.
Outside of work, Connor is an enthusiastic traveller, with his racing taking him to London (2012 Olympics course), Canada and the Sunshine Coast, but he also loves staying closer to home and exploring the beaches and waterfalls around North Queensland.
