Neal was born and raised in Mauritius before moving to Perth with his family during his adolescent years. He completed his secondary education at Willetton Senior High School and went on to complete his Physiotherapy degree at Curtin University, where he was awarded the 2017 Curtin Excellence Scholarship.
Having played basketball at a state level, Neal developed a keen interest in the prevention and management of sporting injuries. He is dedicated to helping patients through their rehabilitation by adopting a multi-modal approach including joint mobilisation, soft-tissue massage, dry needling, exercise prescription and gym-based programs when treating musculoskeletal conditions.
Neal has spent time working in both private practice and hospital settings. In 2020, Neal worked at the Bentley Health Service’s Outpatient Musculoskeletal department, where he treated a variety of conditions including neck, back, hip, knee and shoulder pain. Neal is a methodical clinician who does not simply treat the symptoms of a condition but who strives to address the root cause of the problem.
Neal has also held positions as a sports trainer for the Noranda Hawks Football Club and as a head sports trainer for the Curtin soccer club including the management of the Men’s State League and Women’s National Premier League teams.
Outside of work, Neal likes to catch up with his friends and family, keep fit by going to the gym and playing basketball.
