Introducing the team.

Our team are passionate about helping you be the best you can be. We have all been patients at one time or another, having suffered numerous injuries ourselves over the years. So we understand first-hand what it is like to work through injuries.

All our practitioners are trained to the highest level, offering you the latest research based treatment and rehabilitation protocols.

John Panuccio Osteopath

John Has been helping his patients for over 18 years, after graduating with a Masters in Osteopathy in 2003. Further Studies in Acupuncture, Pilates, Functional Movement Screening, and the recent innovation in the health and fitness industry Functional Patterns help John provide a well rounded approach to your treatment. As an osteopath, John often sees patients who have tried everything and not achieved the desired outcome. Most recently, an Australian Ballerina posted in Scotland for the last 6 years, sought help for a painful knee that had almost crippled her performance since late last year. Having seen several physios, chiros, and massage therapists, John identified a treatment plan that provided a better result in 2 weeks than had been provided in over 7 months…13 years doing martial arts, 5 years training at bootcamp, spartan races, city to surfs, snowboarding, cycling and motorbike riding…

John has experienced high levels of activity and what its like to push your body, and to be injured. On the flip side, as a parent of 2 young children, and a business owner, he also understands the challenges of achieving work / life / health balance. John loves anything involving 2 wheels (motorbikes and road bikes) spending weekends cooking up a storm in the outdoor kitchen for family and friends, as well as chasing his 6 year old boy Phoenix, and 3 year old daughter Genevieve.

Stella Agostino (Brizgala) Physiotherapist

Stella graduated with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy in 2016. She has undergone further studies including; level 2 Pilates matt work, level 1 sports physiotherapy, acute sporting knee, dry needling and most recently, functional patterns. Stella uses specific assessment and screening tools and prides herself with a hands-on approach to treatment in conjunction with utilising our functional gym to formulate rehabilitation programs with the aim of correcting any biomechanical deficiencies.

After playing football (soccer) at a high level for several years, Stella knows what it’s like to come back from injury. At the young age of 14 Stella had an ACL reconstruction and was out on the sidelines for 12 months. It was this injury that motivated Stella to become a physiotherapist and as a result she understands the importance of goal setting and creating a comprehensive return to sport management plan.

In her spare time Stella enjoys spending quality time with family and friends and travelling the world.

John El Khoury Physiotherapist

 

Graduating with a Master’s of Physiotherapy and a Bachelor in Exercise & Sports Science, John is a motivated Physiotherapist that takes pride in improving his patients’ lives and achieving their health goals. Spending time working in several hospitals across Sydney, John has gained experience managing a number of post-operative cases from rotator cuff repairs to knee and hip replacements. Taking this knowledge John has been able to provide best practice for his patients who have undergone an operation.

On the pitch John has had experience managing several sports teams including; Football NSW institute, Blacktown Spartans, Blacktown Magic AFL team, Granville Rage. This exposure has allowed John to see athletes from the moment the injury happens to the day they are back in the game. John’s clinical understanding of conditions paired with a background in strength and conditioning have allowed him to help his patients precisely achieve their goals whether it be to avoid surgery, get back to sport or be able to pick up the grandkids.

Outside of the clinic, John spends time on the mats practicing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, listening to music in the sun and eating anything that grows on trees. *banana emoji*
