Michelle has predominantly worked in private practice clinics helping a variety of musculoskeletal injuries (strain and sprains and work-related postural conditions). She has had the privilege to work with some passionate and expertise in complex chronic pain conditions, allowing her to have a greater understanding and exposure to the interconnections of the body and how a holistic approach is the best way to help manage and prevent re injury and building resilience for the future.
After completing her post graduate diploma in musculoskeletal physiotherapy, Michelle was able to refine and combine her skills and previous experience in treating the root cause of an injury in a more comprehensive way. She enjoys a hands-on approach in managing pain and combining this with exercise therapy (clinical Pilates and resistance/ functional training) to get her patients back to full functional capacity and enjoying life to their fullest.
She considers it the utmost importance to work in a collaborative manner to work closely with patients and any other health professionals and disciplines within the management and care of the patient to ensure understanding and achievement of short to long term goals.
Michelle enjoys keeping fit and healthy by going for regular runs, playing badminton once a week and strength training at home and at the gym. This helps her relax and allows her to also be able to keep up with her niece and nephew at the park and the beach. Also, she has a high energy Golden retriever cross Border Collie, George, who she has to take for regular walks and beach swims and play keeping her in check with nature and socialising around her neighbourhood.
