Meet Derek Hyde-Lay

Derek’s physiotherapy journey began in Victoria, Canada. Growing up, Derek was an avid sportsman who enjoyed playing various sports, especially rugby, golf, and basketball. This love for physical activity, as well as managing his own string of injuries sparked Derek’s interest in the human body and its capabilities, leading to the pursuit of a Bachelor of Kinesiology degree from the University of Calgary.

After completing undergraduate studies, Derek decided to expand his knowledge by moving to Australia to complete a Doctor of Physiotherapy degree at the University of Melbourne. There he further developed a keen interest in sports and musculoskeletal physiotherapy, particularly lower limb pathologies. Loving being involved with sport and the community, Derek is currently a physiotherapist for Power House Rugby Club as well as the Melbourne Rebels Junior Academy.
Derek is a dedicated and passionate physiotherapist who is committed to collaborating with individuals from all walks of life to reach their optimal capacity, enabling them to enjoy the things they love.

Outside of work, Derek enjoys staying active playing basketball and golf, as well as exploring the great outdoors. As an avid sports fan, you can also find Derek frequently taking in many different sports, in particular the NFL and the Seattle Seahawks.

6. Testing + Analysis Consultations

Improve your running performance + reduce injury risks. We fully understand the effect an injury can have on an injured runner, not only physically but mentally. So it is our primary goal to not only treat running injuries effectively but also help prevent them. Your Running Assessment will consist of a thorough musculoskeletal assessment, strength tests and functional movement analysis. We then get you comfortable running on the treadmill and then film you run from the back and side. You will be able to watch yourself running using live streaming from our iPads to our large LCD screen for real time feedback. We then are able to use this high speed video, and review it in slow motion and frame by frame identifying any loading or technique issues, giving us clear insight into how you run. We will never make large technique changes, and we are always considerate of where you are within your season in regards to a big race or run. We know by making small changes we can have a profound effect on injuries and performance. The whole session will take 45min and you will walk away with actionable data and a plan to improve your strength and running economy, so you can run better and perform better.

At Perform we provide ACL VALD Strength + Return to Sport Testing at 6months, 9 months and 12months post ACL Reconstruction.

The data collected from the above criteria based testing provides evidence on whether the athlete has the capacity to safely return to sport and deal with the demand of their sport.
