Meet the Physios
Ed Butcher (Clinical Director/Senior Physiotherapist)
I graduated from Curtin University and have been practicing as a Physiotherapist for the past 20 years, the majority in private practice. During this time I have undertaken extensive Post Graduate Professional Development.
I treat the standard issues such as neck and back pain/problems, sports injuries, joint problems and have a special interest in headache/migraine, adolescence growing issues and dizziness/vertigo—benign postural paroxysmal vertigo. I have also been team physio for state sporting teams.
After initially gaining my electrical apprenticeship with BHP I went travelling through the UK, Europe, Africa and Asia. Upon my return I completed Tuart College and then attained my Bachelor of Science Physiotherapy from Curtin University.
I have a loving wife and 3 beautiful daughters which happily take up most of my spare time. They do let me out for an occasional golf game, which although I love I play badly.
Lisa Priest (Physiotherapist)
After travelling Australia for seven years, I commenced studying as a mature-aged student. I graduated from Curtin University with a Bachelor of Science in Physiotherapy and have since worked in private practice. I am an empathetic listener, am passionate about finding the cause of each individual patient’s issues and find tremendous reward in helping to resolve them collaboratively.
With a holistic approach, I consider the whole person and all contributing factors in each case. My treatment reflects this approach using various techniques and management strategies.
I truly love all aspects of physiotherapy, but particularly enjoy the dynamics of working with children. I am a mother of two young children myself and thrive on being busy. I enjoy keeping fit and healthy and am driven to gently inspire others to living an active lifestyle.
Zac Conaghan (Physiotherapist)
I graduated from Curtin University with a Bachelor of Science in Physiotherapy. I have since worked exclusively in private practice and have developed a particular interest in treating back and neck pain, sporting injuries and tendon pain. I have completed post-graduate courses in sports and spinal physiotherapy, advanced knee rehabilitation and dry needling for musculoskeletal conditions.
I enjoy working with my patients to help them reach their goals, which i believe is best achieved with a combination of education, manual therapy and exercise rehabilitation.
I am a keen traveller, I enjoy keeping active outdoors, heading to the beach and keeping fit at the gym.
Physiotherapy can help recover from injury, reduce pain and stiffness, and increase mobility.
