Expertise & Diagnosis

You need to know that your health practitioner has the knowledge, skills and experience to ensure that you are in safe hands. Your health is important. Getting value for money is important. Being able to do what you need and want to do is essential.

The physiotherapists at Fit and Well Physiotherapy have additional qualifications in
Masters of Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy. Through this extra study, they understand more about the human body in the muscles, joints, nerves, and bones than the typical physiotherapist.

The practice principal, Leanne Yeung received a Bachelor of Applied Science in 1991 at Lincoln Institute/LaTrobe University, the only physiotherapy school available in Victoria at that time. She then worked for a few years as a physiotherapist in the acute hospital and public sector before winning 3 scholarships to complete her Masters of Science in Physiotherapy (Musculoskeletal) at University College London, an internationally-recognised university, where she learned from world renowned experts in the fields of pain and muscle physiology. This education has given her the opportunity to meet and share ideas and approaches to the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions from people all over the globe, including approaches not often spoken about in Australia.

Returning to Australia in 1996, Leanne then applied her skills and knowledge to complex clients  in the multicultural and challenging environment of the community health sector and also shared her knowledge with physiotherapy students at the University of Melbourne, tutoring in anatomy for undergraduate physiotherapy students. Leanne is also extremely experienced in being a lecturer in health promotion, educating students in the science and art of keeping people, not just making them feel better. She occasionally provides clinical supervision for undergraduate and post graduate physiotherapy students at present.

With plenty of experience in working with people with chronic pain, or complex issues or multiple symptoms, and many others following orthopaedic surgery in the public sector, Leanne has had to develop creative approaches to getting people back to being healthy again in a holistic manner.
