Scott graduated from the University of Queensland in 2011 with a Bachelors of Physiotherapy. Since then he has been an integral member of the team at Butel Health Services. He is passionate about chronic pain management with a particular focus on complex cases. These cases usually require an in-depth look at all the lifestyle factors that may influence someone's pain; from your diet, to exercise, sleep and stress management. Scott truly believes that patients need to get in front of these issues by taking an active role in their health and ensuring they are doing the best they can to optimise these lifestyle factors. One of Scott's skills is helping people put a plan in place to achieve this.
Jamie graduated from Sydney University in 2008 with a Masters of Physiotherapy. His undergraduate degree was Sports Rehabilitation which he acquired from Salford University (UK) in 2005. Jamie previously worked as a personal trainer in the UK, so has always had an eye for movement and exercise. He has translated that experience into his physiotherapy career. With over a decade of experience in the physio world, Jamie's primary focus now tends to be on inflammatory disorders and the complex pain patterns that arise with them. His key focus is around diet, digestive health, sleep quality, stress and general exercise and how these may affect someone's pain presentation.
Nikita graduated from Western Sydney University in 2018 with a Masters of Physiotherapy. She obtained her undergraduate degree in Bachelors of Health Science from the same university. Nikita has always had a passion for sports as a competitive netball player and dancer in her youth. Her initial interest in physio came from her experience as a patient during her sporting endeavours. Her focus in physiotherapy is now primarily Women's Health and paediatric physiotherapy. In her short career, Nikita has already completed The Pre/Post Pregnancy Exercise course run by Claire Norgate as well as the 5 day intensive Women's Health course run by Taryn Hamlin. This has put Nikita in an exceptional position with a serious understanding of all things Women's Health.

Hornsby is one of the largest suburbs of the North Shore of Sydney, with a bustling population of approximately 24000 people. Hornsby is located 25km north-west of Sydney's CBD. It can be accessed via the North Shore or Northern Line trains.
Hornsby is rich with aboriginal history and culture. The original landowners of Hornsby were the aboriginal people of the Darug and Kurringgai tribes. They were forced from their land in the early 1800s by European settlers. Many significant artefacts remain in Hornsby today. There are over 200 unique aboriginal heritage sites in the Hornsby region. It is believed that the Darug and Kurringgai people had been in the Hornsby region for 15000-20000 years before British invasion. European settlers moved in at the turn of the 19th century. Constable Samuel Henry Horne was the first notable European settler to arrive, after being awarded land for his efforts to capture bushrangers. It was after his name that Hornsby was derived. The now extremely popular Hornsby Railway Station was opened in 1886, which formed the junction for what we now know as the North Shore and Northern Lines. This has turned Hornsby into a major rail gateway for anyone travelling North, West or into the city. In 1906, Hornsby Shire Council was established, with Hornsby being the local administrative centre for the local government area.
It wasn't until 1961 that the iconic Westfield group opened their first shopping centre. Competing group Northgate built a site right next to Westfield in 1979. This was eventually acquired by the Westfield Group who then created the modern shopping complex we have today in Hornsby.
Hornsby is now one of the most popular suburbs of the North Shore, with enviable public transport access, great facilities such as the Hornsby Aquatic and Leisure Centre, and the iconic Hornsby Organic markets. Hornsby is known for its excellent choices in education. There are ample primary schools in the area and a great range of high schools, both public and private. These include private schools; Barker College, Knox Grammar, Abbotsleigh Girls School. There is also Hornsby Girls High School, Asquith Boys, Asquith Girls and St. Leo's all just down the road.

What is physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy assists individuals to recover from a variety of injuries and problems. You may be suffering from stiffness, pain or just a general lack of mobility. Physiotherapists can use their skills and expertise to assist you in improving your quality of life. Physiotherapists have a wide range of tools that they can use to create positive change. The most effective treatment options are:
- exercise programs to regain strength and mobility
- manual therapy to reduce pain and stiffness
- muscle re-education
- soft tissue mobilisation (massage)
- acupuncture and dry needling
To see a physiotherapist in Australia you do not require a doctor’s referral. However, physio’s will work closely with your treating doctor and other health practitioners to manage and treat complex conditions.
What’s the difference between a physiotherapist and a chiropractor?
There are many overlaps between these two professions, as both will aim to treat many of the same conditions. Physiotherapists tend to have a slightly more exercise focused approach whereas chiropractors will focus more on spinal alignment and adjustments. The evidence suggests that combining manual treatments with exercise is the most effective form of treatment for musculoskeletal conditions.
How long will it take for me to get better?
This of course is hard to answer directly. The complexity of your condition, the length of time you have been suffering and other health factors all play a role in the time for recovery. The general rule of thumb would be the quicker you address the problem, the quicker we can resolve it. We will assess all of the relevant factors that may be increasing your pain and create a plan to resolve them as soon as possible.
How many times will I need to come in?
After the initial assessment, we will be able to estimate the necessary amount of treatment for your condition. As above, the more complex the issue, then the more treatment you will most likely require. We aim to give you the tools to self manage as soon as possible.
