Hi, I'm 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.
