B. PHYSIO, CLINICAL PILATES PRACTITIONER
Michael Patterson worked at Head to Toe Healthcare several years ago and was a big loss when he departed for a working holiday in Europe. His patients loved his relaxed, but professional manner, and to a lesser extent his sense of humour! Having recently returned to Australia, we are happy to have Michael back as part of our team. Michael is a fantastic musculoskeletal “hands-on” physiotherapist, who is also an expert clinical pilates practitioner. He epitomises the Head to Toe philosophy of empowering people to manage their own health and well-being. He achieves this through utilising a combination of hands-on treatment, exercise rehabilitation and clinical pilates. Keep reading to see how Michael can help you.
For the past 6 years, Michael has worked as a physiotherapist specialising in musculoskeletal medicine and incorporates clinical pilates based manual therapy and rehabilitation. In addition to this he also has training in Dry Needling, Shockwave treatment and has a sports trainer certification.
He recently returned from London after spending 2 years working in both the private sector and hospital based musculoskeletal positions. Michael enjoyed his position at the famous St Leonards hospital which was where James Parkinson worked (Parkinsons disease). He also enjoyed working in a private practice based on Regents Street that gave him a view of Piccadilly Circus whilst he treated his patients.
Michael returns to Head to Toe Healthcare after a working holiday abroad with skills that are valuable to both high-level and recreational athletes. These skills are also highly valuable in providing relief for occupational injuries and chronic musculoskeletal conditions. Michael implements these techniques he learned in leading hospitals in London to help set goals and get great results for his clients at Head to Toe Healthcare.
