With an extensive background in different sports, Avantha graduated in Physiotherapy from the University of Otago in 2012. Keen to work within the sporting industry he opened Physio Hub and has been working alongside athletes and their coaches with treatment (including dry needling) , rehabilitation and injury prevention programmes.

He is a New Zealand representative weightlifter and has also competed at national level in athletics. Heavily involved in cricket and soccer at club level, he provides ongoing physiotherapy to a number of local clubs and teams.

Aside from his natural interest in sports, Avantha has also developed a large client base with patients seeking treatment for all kinds of everyday life injuries.
