Luke Tham
Managing Partner & Physiotherapist

Luke graduated from Curtin University and has worked extensively in musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapy private practice.

He takes a strong hands-on manual therapy biased approach to musculoskeletal, occupational and sports injuries, and uses a variety of skills including; spinal mobilisation, dry needling, trigger point and myofascial therapy, biomechanical-postural assessment and correction, exercise rehabilitation and orthotics prescription.

His passion in physiotherapy relates to meeting the needs of a wide range of clientèle; work and occupational injuries, musculoskeletal and sports injuries, spinal back and neck pain, post surgery rehabilitation and developmental conditions in adolescents.

Having competed in state-level sports and also having served three years in the military back in Singapore, Luke personally understands too well the impact and frustrations of injuries, and the pain and time off sports. As such, he has been involved in Perth’s community sports scene as both a sports trainer and physiotherapist in the last decade.

Luke has comprehensive experience managing injured athletes in sports ranging from footy, rugby, soccer, netball, basketball, hockey, to swimming, gymnastics and competition cheer-leading.

In his spare time, Luke is an avid English Premier League Football and UFC-MMA fan, enjoys great food and music, and loves spending time with his family. He is married with two girls and is hoping to complete both a Masters in Sports Physiotherapy and MBA in the next few years.

Emily Hagan

Having grown up heavily involved in sports, Emily was inspired to pursue a career in physiotherapy knowing first-hand, the impact pain and injuries had on her own and her teammates’ sporting endeavours. She also wanted to be able to better understand how the body works, how to reduce injury rates and how to help people.

“I always had an awareness of the impact pain or an injury could have on sporting involvement and performance. This grew into a general curiosity of how the body works and physiotherapy allows me to use that understanding to help people”.

Emily graduated with a physiotherapy degree from Curtin University and has a strong interest in sporting injuries and sports rehabilitation. During the last few years, she has learnt about a wide range of conditions which affect people and is now particularly interested in back and neck pain. In general, Emily enjoys listening to her client’s stories and working with them to achieve whatever goals they may have – pain free of course!

Emily also has a keen interest in both Pilates and yoga, and will be completing further training in Clinical Pilates.

Outside of work Emily is still involved in sports, having represented Australia for synchronised ice skating, and even coming second last in C division social netball! She also loves the beach, bushwalking and drinking far too much coffee!
