Jo Hadley graduated from the University of Queensland in 1987 with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy degree. She has also completed a Graduate Diploma in Journalism at UTS.
Jo has spent many years working in private practice and hospitals both in Australia and the UK treating a variety of sports, occupational injuries and musculo-skeletal problems. She has worked in a rehabilitation setting managing patients after orthopaedic surgery including hip and knee replacements, and also has extensive experience rehabilitating people after ACL and rotator cuff repairs.
Jo has a strong personal and professional interest in treating running injuries and in transitioning into minimal shoes for running. She has recently attended a running course by Blaise Dubois in the current research into running injuries and treatment.
With over 20 years experience Jo has treated many middle and long distance runners for injuries including achilles tendonitis, calf strains, foot pain, hamstring tears, groin pain, patella pain, Runner's knee and buttock/gluteal pain and correcting other biomechanical and muscle imbalances. Jo uses mainly manual techniques including mobilisations, trigger point therapy, massage and soft tissue work and exercise therapy as the foundation of her physiotherapy treatments. This ensures clients reach their goals as quickly as possible and can return to their sport with as little disruption to their training schedule as possible.
Jo also has a special interest in treating neck, shoulder and arm pain resulting from work related injuries and sports injuries. Jo integrates ergonomic and biomechanical assessment into her sessions to ensure that all aspects are covered, giving a holistic approach to treatment and finding a long-term solution for the problem.
Jo regularly attends Pilates classes herself and uses this extra knowledge within her treatment programmes, especially for neck, back and shoulder injuries.
Frequently attending Physiotherapy continuing education courses to constantly update her skills to ensure she delivers the most current treatment programmes and advice, Jo has recently attended courses in dynamic taping (great for support for sporting and workplace-injuries), tendon injuries, current concepts of the knee and lower back treatment and control.
