Mark Ellis

Mark attended Notre Dame University where he completed a double degree in Physiotherapy and Exercise Sports Science.

Since starting work, Mark has developed a keen interest in sporting injuries and enjoys working with athletes to prevent injury and optimise their performance. This interest has also been drawn from his own sporting experience representing Australia in indoor hockey and Western Australia in outdoor hockey. This has given him a first-hand experience of what it is like to suffer a sporting injury and return back to the field.

Mark also enjoys working with chronic pain patients, working with them to develop self-management strategies with the eventual goal of living a pain free life.

Mark uses a wide array of hands on and functional treatment techniques to ensure his patients receive the best care for their condition. These include dry needling, joint and soft tissue techniques and motor control re-training exercises.

Shannon Spencer

After suffering a major knee injury as a teenager, which required surgery and extensive rehabilitation, Shannon had an incredible physiotherapist who enabled her to return to full function and resume performing as a dancer. This inspired her to pursue physiotherapy as a career, which has allowed her to make a huge difference and improve the quality of life for her own clients. Her past injury allows her to sympathise and understand what her clients are experiencing on a physical and mental level.

Growing up in the south of Perth, Shannon attended the University of Notre Dame and graduated with a double degree in Physiotherapy and Exercise and Sports Science.

She has an avid interest in all musculoskeletal and sports related injuries, which has encouraged her love for human movement, rehabilitation and pushing athletic limits. She enjoys utilising her knowledge from both degrees, ensuring client treatment is both specific and goal orientated – whilst having a good laugh along the way!

Having danced her entire life, when she’s not in clinic, you’ll find Shannon at the studio both taking and teaching classes, or playing ice hockey, spending time with her dog or jet-setting off to somewhere spectacular.

James Loh

After growing up in Singapore, James moved to Perth to complete his studies at the University of Western Australia and Curtin University, following his strong desire to help people and aid them with their injuries, rehabilitating them back to their daily living.

He has a passion for physiotherapy not only to be able to see his clients get better when they walk out of the door, but also when they understand what is going on with their body and are able to make changes to get better. “The social and personal aspect of it where I am able to be part of their lives in a small way is another facet of the job that I enjoy”.

James has a keen interest in back and neck pain and also the more “complex” clients. “Complex clients make you think a bit harder and require more energy to deal with, and the treatment approach can often vary in many ways. However trying it may be, the reward at the end is great.”

Outside of his work at Life Ready Physio Cockburn, James enjoys hiking, rock climbing, soccer, badminton, working out (calisthenics) and music.

Eliza Laycock

Eliza’s desire to choose a career in physiotherapy was a familiar one – her grandfather was a physiotherapist and when he passed away there was no longer a physiotherapist in the family so she thought it was her role to fill that void. When she started sport training for the East Fremantle Football Club she found a passion for rehabilitating long term injuries in sport (ACLs, leg fractures and recurrent shoulder dislocations) as well as being fascinated by concussions. This fuelled her for the rest of her degree to aim towards becoming a sports physiotherapist. “I am passionate about helping people realise their weaknesses and help them find strategies to turn them into strengths.”

She completed her studies at the University of Notre Dame, graduating in 2018.

As a physiotherapist, Eliza “likes having the power” to change people’s perceptions about what they think their body is capable of doing. She enjoys being able to influence people and provide a positive influence on their health and wellbeing.

She has a keen interest in sport related injuries and working with motivated athletes and being part of the team. She is fascinated by long term injuries including ACLs, leg fractures, shoulder dislocations and concussions that still seem to have varying return to sport success rates despite vigorous research.

Eliza is an equestrian and competes in eventing/dressage events all over Western Australia on her Off the Track racehorse. She also enjoys sport training for East Fremantle Football Club and spending time with her family and friends and her dog, Oreo and being involved in her local Church.

Corey Carter
Exercise Physiologist

Completing his studies at Murdoch University, his desire to form a career in exercise physiology stems from being able to provide his clients with the tools to remain functional in everyday activities and takes great satisfaction from seeing first hand, the growth and improvement of each and every client.

His belief is that we can use exercise as a form of medication to treat numerous illness/diseases as well as re-shape and re-train our body’s mechanics to decrease the likelihood of chronic injuries.

“Rome wasn’t built in a day” and neither is a healthy lifestyle. In a world where we learn of a new diet and/or exercise regime with what seems like every month, Corey strongly believes that a healthy lifestyle is that of consistency and sustainability.

Being very family-orientated, Corey takes great pride in treating and managing his clients’ as if they were family.

Outside of work, you will find him spending time with his family and friends, playing sport, at the gym and, above all else, managing his dog’s need for constant attention!
