    Hi my name is Jimmy. I was born and raised on the North coast of Ireland near "The Giants Causeway", one of the natural wonders of the world. I have two sisters living in the UK, and my parents have retired to the hills of donegal, for a life of bee keeping and gardening. I play soccer in the top amateur league SA and enjoy playing tennis, badminton and will try my hand at most sports. My proudest moment was playing rugby union for my provence, and being part of the Ireland Under 18s trainning camp, with players who are now full internationals.
    I qualified from the University of Salford, Greater Manchester ,with BSc Hons- Physiotherapy.
    Before coming to Australia I worked for the National Health Service in the UK - working with a broad spectrum of patient groups including; acute medical patients, surgical patients, cardiac rehab patients, elderly care, respiratory, and rehab.
    I started a career in Physiotherapy as i was always needing treatment when I was growing up as a sports fanatic, and I was always asking the physios questions, which stirred my interest.  I specialise in treating sports injuries, and spinal problems.  I enjoy helping people feel relief from their pain, while looking at the big picture, and addressing the cause of their problem in a holistic way.
    I joined Back In Motion Health Group as it trains its physios to look at clients in a holistic way, to maximise their health.

  • Emma Biddle [Practice Manager]

    Emma Biddle [Practice Manager]

    I’m typically described by friends as being litlle in size, but not in personality. As a youngster I was surrounded by weight induced health issues affecting my nearest and dearest, so in a way this has inspired me to change the cycle. My passion to live a healthy lifestyle has brought me to where I am today; I met my husband at the local Boxing club, ran my own Personal Training business for 5 years, started training for my first marathon. Today I front the fantastic team at the Hampstead Gardens clinic. I joined Back In Motion to be part of a passionate environment, dedicated to patient recovery and wellbeing. Aside from this role, I manage the accounts, appointments and general smooth running of the clinic. Each day is a pleasure as I get to interact with people from all walks of life. My big plan? Make the planet a healthier place, and finish painting our house!

Pain can be misdiagnosed as this cause and treatment is not well known to all therapists.
    Melli joined the Back in Motion group because of the ethos of holistic care, giving the patients a complete rehabilitation program to ensure that their problems don’t return. Melli is a Senior Associate Physiotherapist helping mentoring the junior physiotherapists. Melli has had 10 years experience in all fields of physiotherapy including hospital, neurological, orthopaedic and paediatric rehabilitation and acute private and public community physiotherapy.
