Michelle Strother

With a physiotherapy degree and Grad Cert in OH&S, Michelle has been building her skills and knowledge in health and wellbeing for the better part of twenty years. Since leaving full-time education, she has continued to deepen her knowledge, completing a range of courses in fields from senior First Aid through to Certificate IV of Training and Assessment. Several years working in both private practice and major hospitals have given her a wealth of experience in clinical assessment, managing injuries and chronic pain, exercise physiotherapy, return-to-work programmes and a host of other functions across and beyond the traditional physiotherapy spectrum. She is also an accredited trainer and assessor and now brings this experience and her passion for wellness and risk management to the services available from Injury Prevention Plus.

Away from work, Michelle sponsors a variety of personal development charities. Michelle has maintained life long fitness and sporting pursuits, contributes her time and experience to community education and brings her unique energy and organisational flair to everything she does.
