Currently working as the team doctor for the Adelaide Crows (men's and women's teams), Adelaide 36'ers, Adelaide Lightning, and Adelaide Thunderbirds. This is on an extensive background working with the SANFL Eagles, SA state U18 and U16 teams, boxing, martial arts events, and A league soccer, along with several international tours including the World Cup T20 for Hong Kong, Matildas, Kookaburras and Young Socceroos. 

Holding specialist qualification in the Australasian College of Sport and Exercise Physicians (FACSEP), this marks only the 5th doctor in South Australia with this specialist qualification. In addition to 2 prior degrees, a medical degree, and then fellowship in General Practice (FRACGP), Dr Walker continues to have a special interest in using exercise prescription as a preventative approach to many of the current epidemics such as osteoarthritis and diabetes, as well as use in the management of acute injuries. 

Certified in both diagnostic and interventional ultrasound also allows more accurate diagnosis of pathology and guide appropriate interventions, often at the same time of your initial appointment. Injectables from platelet rich plasma (PRP), hyaluronic gels, cortisone, and hydrodisection is an ongoing area of interest, as is non-surgical management of various injuries along with musculoskeletal problems such as osteoarthritis.

These skill areas, along with an ongoing interest in working with a wide variety of professional and casual athletes, help to keep you healthy and injury free.

When not immersed in medicine, he can be found enjoying photography during his travels, practicing martial arts, in the gym, or playing guitar waiting for a call-up to play lead guitar for Metallica.
