Our Team at Life Ready Point Cook

Shane Gunaratnam
Managing Partner & Physiotherapist

When he was young, Shane was always interested in sports and exercise and getting into physiotherapy was quite a natural process. He went on to complete his undergraduate degree at La Trobe University, in 2008, followed by his post-graduate studies in 2014.

“Physiotherapy has also allowed me to meet a range of people from a diversity of backgrounds, as well as facilitated travel and work overseas which has been really enjoyable. I enjoy doing a job that is primarily focused around helping other people and I think it is a real luxury to be in such a position and it drives me to be the best practitioner I can be.”

In 2018 he returned from the UK, having spent four years working in a leading sports medicine clinic in London, where he honed his skills and interests in the management of the shoulder, spine and persistent pain.

Shane uses a combination of education, hands-on treatment, taping, dry and exercise based rehabilitation to optimise patient outcomes. This involves formulating an individualised recovery plan that is focused on achieving both return to activity goals and prevention of future injuries.

Shane has also travelled extensively with recent highlights including trekking around Patagonia and completing the Golden Circle in Iceland.

Joel Ow

Born in Singapore and raised in Perth, Joel made the move to Melbourne to pursue his studies – graduating from the University of Melbourne with a Doctor of Physiotherapy – and to experience the “most liveable city in the world”.

During his studies, Joel gained experience in a variety of sport clubs including the Melbourne University Blacks VAFA-B, Australian Men’s Masters hockey championships, state level athletics, swimming and triathlon teams. He also has two years of experience at Brunswick Hospital helping patients with their rehabilitation and achieving their physical health goals.

In the musculoskeletal setting, Joel has a special interest in low back pain, lower limb rehabilitation and shoulder injuries in both sporting populations and everyday people and loves to individualise treatment options such as exercise-based rehabilitation and soft tissue techniques in a patient-centered manner, ultimately seeing patients walk out the door pain- free and return to doing what they love.

Outside of work, Joel has a love for sports – both as a player and fan – including basketball, tennis and badminton. He also loves to embark on road trips as a traveler, photographer and cinematographer.

Vivian Pham

Having always wanted to pursue a career in which should could help people, in 2013, Vivian graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Anatomy and then went on to complete her Doctor of Physiotherapy at The University of Melbourne.

“Physiotherapy is an amazing career that allows me to fulfil my passion and allows me take an active approach in improving people’s quality of life. I am able to do this through education and by advocating for physical activity and exercise which I think is important in the long term for health and wellbeing.”

During her studies, she has gathered experience in diverse roles including tutoring and mentoring primary and high school students. She has experience working as a sports trainer for a NPLW team and has broad experience working in both the public and private settings.

Her favourite experience to date was working with post-stroke patients with their rehabilitation in a community setting at Western Health.

Vivian has a keen interest in musculoskeletal, paediatric and neurological cases, including strength and conditioning and spinal care.

“I love that physiotherapy applies an active approach to health and wellbeing. My job allows me to make connections with everyday people and work together with them to improve their quality of life. I believe that exercise and physical activity is important in the prevention of many modifiable diseases and I have the privilege to work within a profession that advocates for this. I love that I can be a part of someone else’s journey to improve their health and wellbeing and assist them in achieving their goals.”

Aside from all things physiotherapy, Vivian loves going to the gym as it enables her to relax and gives her a chance to put her knowledge into practice. With a large, extended family, her time away from work is often spent around loved ones or discovering new Vietnamese cooking recipes!
