Meet Our Physios

Why choose us?

We provide High Value Care. We are hands on and exercise oriented Physios. We don’t see the value in providing treatments that you could just as easily do on your own at home. Your time and money is valuable and is better invested in useful interventions that form part of a broader strategy to treat you as a person, rather than a body part. Our assessment and treatment philosophy integrates modern neuroscience and knowledge regarding the neurophysiology of pain into a traditional biomechanical model of joint function. 

We are excellent at what we do! If you’re not sure feel free to give us a call on 0296659667 to discuss your injury/complaint. We can offer you some advice about how well suited our services are for you and your injury / condition.

We are evidenced based practitioners. This means the treatments we offer are backed up by science and research. Across the various professions that service people with pain and / or injury, there exists a suite of treatment options with a questionable supportive evidence base. We simply don’t offer treatments that can’t stand up to scientific scrutiny. This is important for you to consider. Treatments that are not derived from a solid science base will waste your time and money. If we can’t help you, we will let you know, and we will refer you to an appropriate specialist.

We won’t rush your treatment. We are a small practice that runs about 75% capacity. This means we’re never rushed and always have time for you. You are always welcome to email or sms us questions as they arise.

We are available. We can accommodate your need for treatment/advice within a few hours. We always have the clinic phone diverted to one of our Physio’s mobile phone, which mean we can easily be reached. Always feel free to call us. We always keep a few appointments spare for emergency calls.

We are happy doing what we do. We don’t have ambitions to build a Physio empire. We are content with our current set up and really enjoy being free to help our community in our own laid back, non-rushed and thorough manner.

We are proud of what we do. We pride ourselves on providing the highest quality physiotherapy services in a caring and respectful manner, while encouraging you to learn, participate and share responsibility for your well-being.

 

My name is Rioghnach Bradley. I have recently moved to Australia from Ireland, where I began my Physiotherapy career in 2015. Growing up as a keen but injury prone sports player, I was a regular visitor to my local physio. Not only did she manage to patch me up, she also sparked my interest in a career in Physiotherapy.

In addition to working in inpatient hospital settings and outpatient clinics, I have worked with a variety of sports settings including Physiotherapy Gaelic Football, Netball and Gymnastics organisations. I love learning about different sports and tailoring rehabilitation programmes for clients to meet the specific demands of their sport and individual role. I look forward to taking on the role of club Physio for the Waverley Old Boys Football Club in 2019.

I enjoy the challenge of all aspects of Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy and have a special interest in;

  • Lower limb injuries, particularly sports injuries of the knee, foot and ankle
  • Management of hip and knee osteoarthritis
  • Management of longstanding lower back, hip and knee pain problems
  • Post-surgical (orthopaedic) rehabilitation

I am registered Physiotherapist licensed to work in Australia and the United Kingdom.

I enjoy getting to the gym, reading and playing Gaelic Football. I am an approachable, patient, and highly motivated Physio. I look forward to working with you to help you achieve your health-related goals.

My name is Louise Coman. I moved to Australia from Ireland last year where I studied and worked as a Physiotherapist. I graduated from the University Of Limerick, Ireland in 2015 with a first class honour’s Bachelor of Physiotherapy. Dealing with an injury can be a time of worry for many of us and I like to ensure that my patients feel like they are in safe hands and that can be offered reassurance and assistance in re-building confidence in their body. I enjoy getting to know my patients and building a trusting relationship. I think that it’s important to get to know my patients in order to tailor exercise programs, schedule appointments and accommodate treatments to their lifestyle and what works for them.

Women’s health is an area that particular interested me and I loved the time I spent working in a maternity hospital and teaching pregnancy Pilates. I find it is important to empower women to exercise in a safe and challenging manner and also provide a holistic approach to pregnancy related discomforts. It is my role to make one feel as confident and comfortable as possible in your body at this exciting time in your life.
