Michelle Bowman

–  Physiotherapist

                                                                                                             

Hi! I’m Michelle and I love getting people back to what they love, fast!

Here’s a little more about me:

I graduated as a Physiotherapist in 2011 in Scotland and later completed my Master’s degree specialising within the musculoskeletal domain.

I moved to Australia in 2015 in pursuit of the sunshine! I have a passion for helping people and advocate movement and exercise as a cornerstone to well-being. I adopt a ‘whole body approach’ when assessing and diagnosing the reason for your pain or problem. You can expect a thorough and pragmatic assessment linking to a tailored treatment plan ensuring you get back on track, fast.

My client’s can expect specialist ‘hands on’ manual therapy followed by tailored exercises carefully prescribed to ensure those changes stick. I am trained in musculoskeletal dry needling and enjoy using this as an adjunct with many of my clientele. Furthermore no one will leave the clinic without
one or two specific rehab drills that are consistently reviewed and  progressed.

Building resilience is key to a happy body and I am committed to ensuring my clients are discharged stronger and more robust to prohibit reoccurrence.

I treat all musculoskeletal pain from neck-related headaches and jaw pain to bunions and everything in between. I have a special interest in spinal, low back, hip and pelvic pain. I am trained to work with ladies expecting or having just delivered a baby – who may be experiencing pregnancy related
musculoskeletal pain e.g. PGP, SPD etc. I have had the pleasure of working with elite athletes inclusive of Australian representatives in Boxing and Waterpolo as well as club level rugby, hockey and athletics.

In another decade I represented my country at ski racing and so love the winter season helping everyone get ready for the snow. I myself enjoy practicing yoga, running and recently discovered CrossFit. I am trained in equipment Pilates and you will find me running semi-private clinical rehab classes within the clinic.

I look forward to working with you!
