Sally Shannon, Physiotherapist
Sally graduated from the University of Cape Town (South Africa) in 2006 and has worked in South Africa and England before moving to Melbourne in 2018.
She completed a Certificate in Pain Management in 2015 and is passionate about the role that education and rehabilitation play in painful and other chronic health conditions.
Sally initially worked in many diverse environments, including rural clinics, urban hospitals, home based therapy and community centres. In the last 9 years, she has been based predominantly in private practices, treating sports injuries, spinal and arthritic conditions as well as teaching Pilates and other rehabilitation classes. She takes great joy in helping people from all walks of life to stay active and able to participate in the activities that give their life meaning.
More recently, Sally discovered the field of aquatic physiotherapy (or hydrotherapy) and has really enjoyed pool-based rehabilitation, completing various aquatic physiotherapy courses along the way. She looks forward to continuing this side of her work and sees some clients for aquatic physiotherapy sessions at the Harold Holt Hydrotherapy pool.
As a relatively new arrival to Australia, Sally is enjoying exploring Melbourne and its surrounds – finding nature spots and walking trails, eating her way through all the different cuisines, and spending her summer accumulating as much time in the ocean as possible!
