Meet Amy O’Shannassy

Amy is a Titled Sports and Exercise Physiotherapist and works predominantly in Shoulder Rehabilitation. Amy has extensive experience in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of shoulder conditions such as impingement symptoms, instability, rotator cuff injuries and post surgical rehabilitation.

Amy adopts a progressive approach to Physiotherapy, utilising her clinical assessment and diagnostic ability to identify the symptomatic and causative elements of the client’s condition and then implementing a combination of manual therapy, Clinical Exercise + Pilates and strength and conditioning to optimise recovery, improve performance and overall wellness.

Amy has worked with people with a wide range of shoulder and sporting injuries, from office workers to manual workers, social athletes to full-time elite athletes. She has an advanced knowledge of the unique challenges that the shoulder can present, whether that be returning a person back to daily activities, weekend sport, or an elite athlete, returning them back to optimal performance.

An Initial Appointment is used for all new clients to Perform Physio + Pilates. Your Physiotherapist will conduct a thorough assessment, diagnose and treat accordingly. An appointment with an APA Titled Sports Physiotherapist will incur a higher service fee due to the Physiotherapist completing their Masters in Sports and Exercise Physiotherapy and a holding a higher level of experience.

3. Clinical Pilates + Exercise

Is where one of our Titled Sports Physio's Physiotherapists performs a full movement assessment reviewing your biomechanics and movement patterns and how they may inter-relate with your injury. The physio then prescribes and teaches you specific clinical pilates exercises on the reformer to address any movement of biomechanical impairments.
