Dr Chris Hasenkam

Sports Physician Specialist

Chris is a Sport and Exercise Medicine Physician who has worked at MP Sports Physicians since 2019. Chris has experience working as the doctor across multiple elite sports and brings his knowledge and experience from these programs into the consulting room to provide a functional and performance-based approach to treatment.

He empowers his patients to understand their condition and works with them to return to activity, whether that be professional sport or everyday exercise.

Outside of the clinic, Chris remains active and although his days as a cricketer are well behind him, he enjoys the eternal struggle to lower his golf handicap.
