Physiotherapist and Exercise Physiologist
As the Business Director and Principal Physiotherapist, I’ve been proud to own and operate Queen Street Physiotherapy for more than 18 years. My passion for physiotherapy rehabilitation was ignited during my days as an elite field hockey player, where I experienced sporting injuries firsthand and witnessed the transformative impact of treatment and rehabilitation programs on my recovery and performance.
My expertise extends beyond sports physiotherapy, as I hold a strong interest in treating workplace-related injuries, often presenting as back, shoulder, and neck pain. My focus goes beyond just diagnosing and treating the injury; I am dedicated to working with you to develop customized strategies and exercises that prevent the recurrence of these injuries.
My extensive university education includes degrees in Sports Science, Exercise Physiology, and a Masters in Physiotherapy. This unique combination equips me with valuable insights and enables me to offer effective, individualized treatments for a wide range of sporting, workplace, and musculoskeletal injuries.
At Queen Street Physiotherapy, I am committed to providing exceptional care to everyone, from those with office-related or gym injuries to elite-level athletes across various disciplines. I’ve worked with ultra-endurance runners, obstacle course racers, bodybuilders, Muay Thai fighters, boxers, and many more, helping them overcome challenges and optimize their performance.
If you’re looking for a physiotherapist who understands the intricacies of your specific injury and can tailor treatment plans to your unique needs, look no further. Let me be your partner in recovery and performance enhancement. Book an appointment with me today, and together, we’ll embark on a journey towards better health and a more active, pain-free life.
“Hello, I’m Michael Todhunter, and my journey with physiotherapy began when I was a teenager and suffered a sporting injury. My experience with a physiotherapist during that time fascinated me, and it inspired my lifelong passion for this field. Helping my clients achieve their best has always been my driving force.
Throughout my career, I’ve had the privilege of working with athletes at all levels – from juniors and weekend warriors to elite sportspeople. Rugby has been particularly close to my heart, even though I must admit I didn’t excel as a player! For over a decade, I’ve served as a club physio, caring for clients with acute injuries and assisting in the rehabilitation of complex surgical cases.
Recently, I’ve taken a keen interest in occupational health and workplace injuries. Completing my level 1 certification in occupational health physiotherapy, I’ve gained invaluable hands-on experience in all aspects of this specialized field while working in the mining industry in central Queensland.
On a personal level, I prioritize my fitness and find joy in road cycling. Whenever possible, I take to the roads, both locally and internationally, to stay active and connected with my surroundings.
I am thrilled to be part of this journey with you. Whether you’re an athlete looking to optimize your performance or seeking support in overcoming workplace injuries, I’m here to provide personalized care tailored to your needs. Let’s work together towards your wellness and ultimate recovery. Book a session with me today, and let’s embark on this transformative path together.”
