Megan O'Shea Principle Physiotherapist - Active Solutions Physiotherapy Floreat Western Australia-circle

Megan O’Shea

Principal Physiotherapist
MUSCULOSKELETAL PHYSIOTHERAPIST

Megan studied at Curtin University for both her Bachelor of Physiotherapy (1998) and Masters in Manipulative Therapy (2005) qualifications. She also completed certification as a Polestar Rehabilitation Pilates Practitioner (2004) and further study in Women’s Health, Continence and Pelvic Pain (2013).

She founded and opened Active Solutions Physiotherapy in 2016.

Megan has always worked in Private Practice with manual therapy and in exercise studios, treating spinal pain and sports injuries. Since having her own children, her work focus has increasingly extended into in the area of Women’s Health, Continence and Pelvic Pain.

Megan has worked in Perth, Melbourne, London and rural Ireland. Her patients have been as diverse as her geography from Highflying finance brokers to Cow farmers, from weekend casual sportspersons to Olympians.

The diverse workplace and cultural experience gained throughout her career, coupled with continuing professional development, has culminated in Megan becoming a skilled and empathetic Physiotherapist.

These days Megan’s time is divided between treating her patients , co-ordinating the impossible 3 kids x 2 sports each, running the business, regularly exercising and negotiating school pick up with her husband.

Michelle Mac Siomoin

Senior Physiotherapist

Michelle hails from the same Irish town as where Megan’s (Practice Owner) Irish family is based!! Michelle moved to Perth specifically to study Physiotherapy at Curtin University, graduating in 2008 and completed the Polestar Pilates Rehabilitation course in 2012.

Michelle has extensive experience working in Private Practice. Her treatment is very hands on, transitioning to correcting poor movement when pain is controlled. She ensures her patients understand what their condition or injury is and how best to manage it themselves. 

Clinically Michelle has a specific interest in the treatment of low back, pelvic and hip pain. This interesting and complex region of the body, requires the attention of a skilled physiotherapist.

Outside of work, Michelle is kept busy with her two little boys. You will also find Michelle in the gym (trying her best to lift or move heavy stuff!!), in the Pilates studio (fine tuning), running or more recently learning to surf (open to interpretation). Free weekends are spent camping as there really is nothing better than a Wander out Yonder
