Brett Causer
Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP)

Brett is a country boy at heart, born and bred in the tiny village of Quandialla, NSW. He founded Motion as Medicine to fill a huge gap in health care within rural locations, in particular the lack of high quality, clinical exercise physiology services. After very successful teenage years in both cricket and rugby league, Brett assumed his future would lie in professional sports.

More details...

As part of the St George-Illawarra Dragons set-up, Brett’s world came crashing down at the tender age of 19 when he was forced into premature retirement due to serious back and neck injuries. To make matters worse, he went on to develop a whole body chronic pain syndrome over the preceding years, meaning everyday life can be a physical struggle. Thankfully he manages his conditions very well through targeted, individualised and evidence-based exercise, but that is not to say it's easy.

Brett is a highly knowledgeable, empathetic and skilful practitioner who loves nothing more than assisting his patients achieve what they thought was impossible! He is experienced in all areas of exercise rehabilitation, however he specialises in chronic back pain, disability care and athletic performance. Brett’s patients love his empathy, honesty, hardworking nature and his “attempts” at being funny!

Brett’s interests include learning (he is a nerd), rugby league, cricket and his family. He lives in Orange with his wife Amanda, children Beasley and Maisy, and golden retrievers Maxy and Barney.

Brett is our main AEP at our clinics in Orange, Cowra and Grenfell.

Kael Agattau
Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP)

Kael joined us from Wollongong in 2019 after graduating from the highly regarded clinical exercise phyisology program at the University of Wollongong. He is super passionate about our team and always ready to help our rural communities, as he too was raised in a small town. However, this small town was on the other side of the world in Italy!

More details...

Kael is interested and competent in all areas of clinical practice, but nominates neurological rehabilitation, spinal cord injuries and disabilities as his preferred areas of specialisation, particularly those participants needing to get the most out of their NDIS plans. He also loves nothing more than helping injured workers get back into their day-to-day careers through his knowledge of the WorkCover system.

He has a very analytical mind and a soft, empathetic disposition, which is a winning combintation to be a superstar practitioner. On top of that, his work ethic is second to none and he moves heaven and earth to get what his patient needs!

His no nonsense and direct approach ensure his clients get great results.

In his spare time, Kael likes to spend the day with his lovely wife Avi and their border collie, Bella. He also enjoys completing resistance training and he loves to learn...full stop!

Kael resides in Cootamundra and is our leading AEP at our clinics in Cootamundra, Temora and Young.
