Bsc (Hons) Physiotherapist APAM “I love the exercise rehabilitation side of my work to get people back to 100% recovery, with Pilates being a big part of that”. Raychelle joined AMC in July 2014 and brings a wealth of Physiotherapy and Pilates knowledge to the practice. Graduating from Northumbria University in 2008 with a BSC Physiotherapy with Honours, she began working in private practice here in the Barossa and completed her acupuncture training. Raychelle returned to England for two years working in the NHS, working in the hospital setting covering general physiotherapy and on the stroke ward carrying out community neurological rehabilitation. She was promoted to Senior Physiotherapist in the Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Department in the NHS. In 2010, Raychelle trained in Pilates with the Australian Physio and Pilates Institute and has been teaching ever since. She returned to the Barossa in 2012. Raychelle has a special interest in treating the cervical spine, shoulders and knees. She has plans to specialise in women’s health particularly during and after pregnancy.
Physiotherapist Susan Gordon joined our physiotherapy team in March 2016 and has over 30 years of experience primarily in private practice. Susie graduated from Adelaide with a degree in Physiotherapy in 1985 and is committed to providing a holistic approach to treating patients. Susie provides a hands on, one on one approach incorporating Muscle Energy, Mulligan, Manual, Myofascial and acupuncture therapies. She feels she is well suited to a large country practice treating general physiotherapy issues. Whilst not specialising in anything in particular, over the years she has developed an interest in spinal pain and enjoys the challenge that these somewhat complex issues can present, particularly in adolescence. Exercise programs, nutrition and lifestyle are important components of her treatment. I love the fact that working in a large country practice you get all walks of life, this can be challenging but also very rewarding. I find AMC a very holistic and enjoyable place to work and working together with Raychelle, feels that all aspects of physiotherapy can be assessed and managed with professionalism and confidence here at AMC.
