Meet Grant Mercorella, BSc (Physiotherapy)

Senior Physiotherapist

Grant MercorellaIn 1996, Grant graduated from Latrobe University (Melbourne, Australia). He then worked in private hospital rehabilitation for a year, travelled around Australia for a year working as a locum, and began his private practice career in Melbourne.

Moving back to Alice Springs in 1999, Grant started Red Centre Physiotherapy, which he owned and managed for 15 years. There, he gained extensive experience in sports physiotherapy, musculoskeletal physiotherapy, and post-orthopaedic surgery rehabilitation.

Grant worked very closely with the visiting sports physician from Darwin, and the orthopaedic surgeons from Sportsmed, Adelaide, SA. Working in a remote practice gave him the opportunity to experience all areas of physiotherapy, which helped him work closely in a multidisciplinary team to help patients achieve great results.

During this time, Grant was also the physio for the NTIS Central Division for five years and the lecturer for Sports Medicine Australia’s Level 1 & 2 Sports Courses. He was also a keen dirt bike racer, competing in the Finke Desert Race eight times and the team physio for the Desert Edge Race Team.

Continuing to Learn

Since moving to Perth in 2014, Grant has furthered his knowledge with the excellent professional development courses the Australian Physiotherapy Association runs. He has also broadened his knowledge and experience with BPPV dizziness patients and the management of persistent musculoskeletal pain.

Grant has over two decades of years of experience; he has helped those with workers’ compensation and motor vehicle accident injuries, sports injuries, and musculoskeletal issues for all ages. With an interest in sports and exercise physiotherapy, he uses the gym and hydro-exercise therapy to help achieve patients’ goals. Grant has also completed a level 1 strength and conditioning course through the Australian Strength and Conditioning Association. Additionally, he is certified in dry needling.

Outside of Work

Grant’s interests outside the practice include running, dirt bike riding, stand-up paddle boarding, surfing, and ice hockey. He has also been the team physio for The Perth Sharks U23’s Ice Hockey Team.
