Meet our team of specialised mobile physios in Melbourne. They have extensive experience neuro-respiratory disorders and love helping our clients achieve their goals.
Jacqui is the founder and director of Active Edge Physio Melbourne. She is a neurotrauma specialist and also works as a senior clinician for the Victorian Spinal Cord Service at Austin Health.
Jacqui is passionate about helping people with neuromuscular disorders improve their respiratory health. She has spent her career getting people with complex neuro-respiratory conditions off ventilation, off oxygen and out of hospital. Jacqui loves going the extra mile to discover new ways to improve and maintain lung capacity in this complex and diverse client group. As one of the most loved Melbourne mobile physios specialising in neurotrauma, she loves seeing her clients stay out of hospital, stabilised with less chest infections and getting back to living a life they love.
Jacqui is so invested in minimising respiratory dysfunction occurring in people with neuromuscular disorders. She has conducted clinical research over the years to both learn more herself, but also to expand the knowledge and skills for those working with clients that are struggling with these problems. If you’d like some light bedtime reading, you can check out some of the papers she has written.
Adriana is our remarkable practice manager at Active Edge Physio. She is passionate about working in a team with a strong client centred philosophy.
Adriana has worked in medical and ancillary health management for many years and has always loved being able to work behind the scenes to find solutions for clients, getting to know them and their individual needs.
Amie loves making a difference in people’s lives and helping them achieve their goals. She enjoys personalising her approach to meet each person’s unique physio needs.
Working with people in their own home enables Amie to see what challenges present in that environment, then find the best ways she can use physio to help people overcome them. Seeing people make progress on their health journey by applying techniques Amie has shown them is her favourite part of her role. In her free time, Amie loves spending time outdoors with her husband, two boys, and two dogs, watching the Geelong Cats play football, and exploring the Victorian high country.
Jess has extensive experience in complex disability and home based rehabilitation. She is inspired by the power of the brain to relearn and recover following an injury, and is passionate about empowering her clients to achieve their goals.
Jess specialises in treating conditions such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, parkinson’s disease and functional neurological disorder. She feels particularly privileged to work with clients who have had a stroke, as the potential for recovery is endless and the gains her clients make are so inspiring.
Tessa has always had an affinity for neurological physiotherapy and is fascinated by the way the brain works to interact and control the rest of the body. She also works as a neurological physiotherapist at Caulfield Hospital at Alfred Health.
Tessa specialises in managing conditions such as brain injury and stroke. She is passionate about working with clients of all functional levels to empower them to regain ownership and control of their body after neurological injuries. Tessa loves that no two clients are the same and she learns something new from every client she meets. She particularly enjoys working with clients to establish what’s important to them and help achieve these goals – big or small.
Tom is fascinated by the complexity of the human brain and nervous system. He particularly enjoys building a good rapport working with people over a long period of time and being able to share in the joy of their success, as they achieve the goals they feel passionate about.
Seeing people who felt disempowered and had lost their confidence after a neurological injury or diagnosis, steadily regain their independence through physiotherapy is something Tom finds deeply rewarding. When he has free time, Tom’s hobbies include rock climbing, yoga, and camping
