Brent Vanderloop is our full time physiotherapist at Life Ready Midland.
Brent treats all areas of pain and injury with use of the Selective Functional Movement Analysis (SFMA) of which he is an accredited practitioner. The SFMA provides a better understanding of the root cause of pain rather than treating the symptoms. This is very beneficial for patients especially those who are experiencing reoccurring pain or injury.
He also specialises in golf physiotherapy. He is level 1 and level 2 Medical Professional Certified by Titleist Performance Institute (TPI). He was accredited in Tokyo by Dr. Greg Rose, the founder of TPI. For more information about golf physiotherapy please see his website www.perthgolfphysio.com.
Brent has also worked with amateur football clubs in Perth and is the physiotherapist for the Perth Thunder semi-professional ice hockey team.
Brent has experience working in both Canada and Australia, which has provided him with well rounded knowledge. He has an undergraduate degree in Kinesiology (sports science) from the University of Western Ontario and a Graduate Entry Masters of Physiotherapy from Curtin University of Technology.
Brent is certified in dry needling, which he uses regularly. He also has a Certificate IV in Occupational Health and Safety and provides physical work capacity assessments for employers.
Away from work Brent is a fanatical sports fan who is constantly keeping up to date with the latest news and his fantasy sports teams. He has a passion for golf and is a member of the Western Australian Golf Club. He spends most weekends getting in a round or two when he isn’t taking his dog Leroy to the beach.

Stephanie chose a career in physiotherapy because she has a sincere passion for helping people. She has also played a lot of sport and was able to experience first hand the amazing care and knowledge people can get from a physiotherapist.
She completed her studies at Curtin University, graduating in 2016.
“The best thing about being a physiotherapist is being able to develop that bond and rapport with your patients. Being able to see your patient’s progress, feel confident and happy is very satisfying.”
Stephanie enjoys all areas of physiotherapy, especially rehabilitation – whether that be coming back from an ankle injury or learning how to transfer and take steps after a stroke. She also has a keen interest for treating patients with neurological conditions as well as any ankle, knee or back injuries.
Outside of work, her sporting commitments tend to take up a lot of her time, as she is quite involved in netball and calisthenics, which she competes competitively for in both. She twice represented Western Australia in calisthenics at national competitions!
Stephanie Higgs’s profile
Peter completed his physiotherapy degree at Curtin University and additionally holds accreditation as an exercise physiologist through postgraduate study in exercise rehabilitation at the University of Western Australia.
“I decided to become a physiotherapist after I got to work closely with people through rehabilitation and knew that this collaborative and personable setting was where I would be able to make a difference and get the most reward and enjoyment out of life.”
Peter has keen interest in all musculoskeletal injuries and conditions, including the management of persistent pain and developing pacing strategies and prehabilitation and rehabilitation following orthopedic surgery. He also has particular experience in the diagnosis and management of sporting injuries, with previous involvement in NPL soccer, division 1 hockey and the East Perth WAFL Colts.
“I love that physiotherapy is making a real difference to function and pain, and as part of that, we’re able to explain what is going on, and why, to clarify often frustrating circumstances and empower people to take charge in the collaborative management of their own health.“
Having competed for the state team in trampolining, a brief fling with the circus, and lifetime playing soccer, Peter knows all too well the risks of injuries firsthand. Because of this, he is well aware of the importance of early identification, targeted rehabilitation, and the role of injury prevention strategies to both reduce injury risk and improve performance.
Outside of work, Peter enjoys the company of friends and family, sitting back with a guitar/book/movie, frequenting cafes and spending too much money on coffee and exploring WA and whenever possible, abroad.
