Graduating with distinction in 1996 from the University of Sydney, Melinda has always been passionate about exercise and education. As one
of the longest standing physiotherapists at Physiocise she prides herself on helping clients to find their long term fix to often persistent
chronic problems. A good listener, and drawing on years of experience in movement and pain sciences, she will help you make sense of what
has been going on for you and work with you to come up with treatment plans and solutions.
She has worked along side Anna-Louise in their 12 year injury prevention focus with the NSW Waratahs Rugby Union and was instrumental in the development of the popular Physiocise for Athletes Program. She has consulted to elite athletes from many different sports and disciplines. Committed to regular exercise herself, she has a keen insight into the injury issues many athletes face. Her commitment to prevention has also seen her developing programs for the Australian Rugby Sevens and was involved with both the women’s and men’s teams in their lead up to the 2016 Rio Olympics. Recently she has been involved with them in the lead up to the Commonwealth Games this year.
As well as specialising in helping people with chronic pain and the athletic population, Melinda has always had a keen interest in wellbeing and prevention in the corporate environment.
She developed the highly successful Physiocise@Work wellbeing program over 10 years ago which focuses on promoting health enhancing habits and teaching good exercise in the workplace. She has presented seminars and short courses to many organisations large and small including SBS, the ATO and Relationships Australia and now offers offsite sessions at Physiocise for Corporate Teams.
Melinda is also one of the Team of Well-Being Experts from the award-winning Happy Body at Work program, which has rolled out to over 25000
people in organisations such as Optus, the ASX, ANZ, Minter Ellison, Sydney Trains and the University of Sydney.
