Madeline Crouch
Musculoskeletal and Sports Physiotherapist

Madeline is a titled musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapist and exercise sport scientist, completing her undergraduate degree in Physiotherapy and Exercise Sports Science at UNDA in 2012, and then her Masters of Musculoskeletal and Sports Physiotherapy at Griffith University in 2016.

She developed a passion for physiotherapy at a very young age as she pursued a career in professional dance.

Now as a Mum to baby Cooper, CrossFit enthusiast and physiotherapist, Madeline knows the importance of maintaining health and well being.

“Working in health care is rewarding. Not only do you get to work with people all day everyday, you support people in being the best version of themselves – whether it’s through management of pain, enhancing their performance or supporting them during a difficult time. Physio is so diverse, you learn so much, get to share that with others and yet there’s always new skills to develop or areas to improve.”

Madeline’s clinical areas of interest include; hip, pelvic and back pain, acute sporting injuries, pre and post-operative rehabilitation and ante and post natal exercise. She has gained a wealth of experience in these areas working at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, with national and international level hockey teams as well as NRL, AFL and track and field teams. Madeline uses her finely tuned manual therapy skills alongside her knowledge and passion for strength and conditioning training to optimise her clients’ outcomes in the short and long term.

Kayla Kennedy

Kayla chose a career in physiotherapy for three primary reasons: she enjoys being active (and not being stuck behind a desk!), has always had the desire to work in healthcare and loves working with people to help them achieve their best self.

She completed her physiotherapy degree at Curtin University, graduating in 2013.

Kayla loves the variety of work that physiotherapy offers and says “no single patient is ever the same.” She enjoys being in a field that is continually growing and improving in order to optimise the quality of life of everyday people.

Kayla has a keen interest in shoulder pain as it can often be quite debilitating and a difficult area to treat, which is why it is so rewarding to help people overcome shoulder pain and disability. She also enjoys treating knees, particularly ACL rehabilitation and guiding people from the stage of injury, pre-op, post-op and all the way to return to sport.

She loves utilising and teaching Pilates as it is a very useful rehabilitation tool to get people back to exercise or to introduce sedentary people to exercise. With an interest in playing netball, tennis, swimming, and watching football, Kayla also has a particular interest in helping people get back to these sports.

Outside of work Kayla enjoys to keep active and you’ll often find her running, swimming, getting to a yoga or Pilates class, hiking or cycling. She loves weekend camping adventures outside of the city, hunting to find Perth’s culinary delights, going to the beach, photography and travel.

Nick Kennewell

Throughout his studies, Nick always dreamed of working in private practice and now that the time has come, he couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of the Life Ready Physio Spearwood team!

Fresh from graduating in early 2019 and having the latest information and techniques to offer his clients, he now has his eyes set on Pilates training and courses in dry needling in the future, so watch this space!

Nick has always found musculoskeletal injuries and conditions to be the most interesting to assess and treat, with a particular interest in the lower limb, however he enjoys treating clients with a wide variety of ailments. Any time he has the opportunity to improve someone’s quality of life, he’s all in.

Outside of work, you can usually find Nick in the gym or in the kitchen – if he’s not working, exercising or eating. He is also often off in search of an adventure as he loves to travel!

Lauren Jones
Remedial Massage Therapist

Lauren completed her Diploma in Remedial Massage in 2016 at the Australian Institute of Fitness, whilst also completing a double degree in Exercise Sport Science and Preventive Health at the University of Notre Dame. Wanting more of a challenge, she completed a Master of Philosophy in Health Sciences at Notre Dame, designing an exercise intervention to specifically help those with Multiple Sclerosis.

Lauren thoroughly enjoys working in an allied health setting alongside physiotherapists and exercise physiologists as it allows her to acquire new skills and knowledge about the musculoskeletal system, which will help to further improve her manual therapy skills.

With a passion for learning new techniques and modalities, Lauren has also completed an advanced dry needling course that has helped to heighten her understanding of the importance of remedial massage therapy regarding posture, balance, movement efficiency and injury prevention.

Outside of work, Lauren has a love of the water, so you will found her either swimming at her local pool or in the ocean, with a dream of one day doing a solo Rottnest channel crossing!

Sarah Abbott
Exercise Physiologist

While spending nearly seven years working as a marine scientist, Sarah was also managing persistent back pain and a diagnosis she was eager to understand more about. This personal journey eventually led to the decision to retrain in exercise physiology.

Since graduating from Notre Dame in 2017, she has been operating as an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP), prescribing exercise for those with complex care needs including chronic pain and fatigue, mental health concerns, cancer, and various musculoskeletal, neurological, autoimmune, metabolic, cardiovascular and respiratory conditions.

“Exercise physiology has developed into one of my life passions and having experienced first-hand the empowering role of movement and some of the science behind pain that is both helpful, fascinating and worth sharing, I feel compelled to support others to move well, move with ease and reap the many benefits that come with moving more.”

Sarah has also had key roles in leading the group Diabetes and Living Longer Living Stronger exercise programs and the Life Now program, for those affected by cancer.

Sarah enjoys getting to know each of her client’s unique challenge, getting creative and providing options to gain meaningful health and fitness benefits no matter the limitations. She loves providing practical support and being part of the social-connection and resilience gained through group exercise.

Outside of work with Life Ready, Sarah enjoys surfing, camping, gardening, a good book, live music and the odd bit of flamenco dancing.
