Brookvale Physiotherapist

BHSc (Physiotherapy, University of Auckland)
MSc (Physiology, University of Auckland)
MEd (Kinesiology, Exercise Science, University of Texas)

Prior to working at the Sea Eagles I was working in private practice in Sports Medicine Clinics and managed a back and neck clinic in the United States putting to practise my strong post graduate education in exercise science having obtained a Masters In Kinesiology from the University of Texas.

​The skills and knowledge I have gained at the elite level, I now intend using to help and assist the general public be it the weekend warrior, the gardener, the retiree, or the aspiring junior footballer/surfer/netballer etc.

My time at the Sea Eagles has enabled me to develop strong relationships with top Orthopaedic Surgeons, Sports Doctors and Radiologists and I can help guide you in their direction if needed.

Attending to an on field injury of Tom Trbojevic

“I worked with Andre for the best part of 5 years and he really helped me not only get back to full fitness when injured he also helped me with many injury prevention techniques that kept me on the field! I would thoroughly recommend him as a physio, as he is highly trained and will help you in any way you need!"

"I've just hurt my shoulder and come down to see old faithful Andre Rickenbach. If you're ever injured come down to Kingdom Gym. He looked after me for 15 years or more at Manly and always had me ready to go on the field."

“My name is Jake Trbojevic. Andre was my club Head Physio at the Manly Sea Eagles since 2013, and he was Head Physio for many more years before that.

He has helped me and many of my teammates through numerous major injuries, but it is also the week to week maintenance of niggling injuries that allows us to get out on the field each week that we are most appreciative of. As footballers we hate missing games, and under his guidance we were able to minimise the amount of time we spent on the sidelines.”
