FOUNDER & APA Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist
MHlth Sc (Manip Phty) BPhty BExSc
After completing a rather unique double degree - a Bachelor of Physiotherapy & Exercise Science in 2003, & a Masters of Manipulative Physiotherapy at the University of Sydney in 2010 (a voluntary, yet brutal, undertaking for a physio who wants to be better), Adam established Evoker in 2011. A physiotherapy practice with a difference. & that difference, or 'niche', was absolute excellence. 100% of the time. Attention to customer service detail, & excellence in physiotherapy.
Adam's career in physiotherapy began in the 'elite' sporting arena at the Brisbane Broncos Rugby League Club. The lessons learned in this 'sink or swim', high pressure environment of the 03/04/05 seasons, created a platform for Adam to really excel in this profession. Adam has accepted invitations to look after the physical health of other Physiotherapists, Doctors, Specialists, Surgeons & none other than the Prime Minister of this country.
Adam Monteith is a highly skilled musculoskeletal physiotherapist. You can be assured that when you see Adam, your complaint will be thoroughly assessed, and he will use the most appropriate and up to date techniques to treat your problem. Adam’s treatment will always be governed by research. He is constantly analysing the results of the most recent clinical trials so that you can receive the most up to date treatment, helping you to get better sooner. Adam only ever uses evidenced based and clinically proven treatment techniques. Adam Monteith is also a member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association.
Adam is very time aware and prides himself on seeing his patients on time. With a greater than 10 year history of treating and servicing the busy professional in Sydney city, he respects your time and does his best not to keep you waiting.
ALLSPORTS PHYSIO & SPORTS MEDICINE
Adam Monteith is a well trained and highly successful musculoskeletal physiotherapist. He graduated from Griffith University’s Gold Coast campus in 2003 with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy and a Bachelor of Exercise Science. Good work in the field earned Adam a new graduate position with Allsports Physiotherapy and Sports Medicine, the official physiotherapists for the Brisbane Broncos Rugby League Club. During this time Adam was responsible for the treatment and care of a variety of patient types. Work here involved the treatment and return to sport of elite athletes, post operative patients, the busy active professional, and the patient with everyday neck and back pain.
THE BRITISH ARMY
After turning down an offer to buy into the Allsports practice, Adam moved to London where he spent several years living and working in the United Kingdom. For 12 months Adam was employed by the British Army and was responsible for keeping 1500 soldiers fit and ready for deployment. In this time, Adam was largely treating lower limb over-use injuries (or running injuries) such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinopathy, anterior knee pain, and shin splints. Adam also worked in a large, very reputable, sports clinic in the heart of London city treating a variety of patient types, from Olympic athletes (yes – they were English) to the astute businessman. Adam then moved to the United States and spent the winter working in the Colorado Rockies, treating a large number of skiing and boarding injuries.
SYDNEY & CBD PHYSIO
On return to Sydney in 2007, Adam joined CBD Physio in the heart of Sydney city, where he spent 4 years treating and servicing the very busy Sydney professional. In this time Adam returned to study and completed a Masters of Physiotherapy, with a specialist stream in manipulative physiotherapy, at the University of Sydney. This intensive and demanding 2 year period of study has significantly improved Adam’s already strong assessment and treatment skills. Adam now has more than 20 years combined study and clinical experience in the profession, and is more than capable of dealing with the most complex of conditions, and has done so with great success in the past.
Expect: A good listener, time spent in assessment phase, plenty of ‘hands on’ physio and exercise.

Monique is our resident pilates instructor at Kent St, Barangaroo. A youth filled with competitive gymnastics resulted in this young lady exploding in the sport to fast become Canadian National Champion by age 13.
Unfortunately, injury prevented her from progressing further in the sport, at which point Moe (as we like to call her) entered into coaching. Couple this elite performance & teaching experience with tremendous physiotherapy skill and acumen, and not to mention a personal 'love' of pilates, and you now have the perfect pilates instructor for you!
'Moe knows' high performance exercise & training. Moe knows teaching. Moe knows physiotherapy pain, anatomy & pathology. Moe knows pilates - back to front, side to side & top to bottom.
If you are looking to pilates as a pain management strategy, or, if you are looking to pilates as a 'pain away' prevention strategy - look no further for your personal instructor, teacher & friend.
Monique Coelho graduated with high honours from the University of Toronto in 2010 with a Bachelor of Kinesiology, where she received the prestigious Governor General Award for graduating top of her class. Throughout her years of study, she worked as an Anatomy teaching assistant, participating in cadaver dissection and facilitating learning labs for 1st and 2nd year students, while simultaneously working as an athletic therapist for the varsity soccer, basketball, and football teams.
Monique’s interest in sports and rehabilitation stems from her own athletic background. She was a competitive gymnast growing up and became a Canadian National Champion at the young age of 13. Riddled with injuries throughout her athletic career, Monique began to develop an interest in musculoskeletal rehabilitation and physiotherapy. When she was no longer able to continue as an athlete, she dedicated herself to the sport by coaching recreational and competitive gymnastics while completing her undergraduate degree.
Monique went on to complete her Master in Physiotherapy at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada. Since graduating in 2012, she has gained valuable orthopedic experience working in a variety of musculoskeletal private practice clinics. She has gone on to complete post graduate courses in manual therapy and therapeutic taping, and has plans of pursuing continued education in the fields of acupuncture/dry needling, and manipulative therapy.
Monique is also a certified level 2 DMA Clinical Pilates practitioner, from which she incorporates her Pilates training into individual treatment programs. Monique has been running small group pilates classes within the clinic, for a maximum of 4 people, for several years now. Monique’s pilates classes are awesome! A fun vibe exudes, towels are provided, a bottle of water is on your reformer, and as always – the music is great!
Dedicated to professional development, Monique’s treatment philosophy is deeply rooted in evidence-based practice and client centered-care. As a former athlete, Monique understands the struggles and frustrations that accompany an injury, and is dedicated to support you throughout the challenging rehabilitation process.
Expect: A big smile, a ‘fading’ Canadian accent, a super fun, energetic yet technically specific pilates class.

Sean loves physiotherapy. There is no question. We can't wipe the smile off his face. His thirst for knowledge & understanding of the body has seen him invest post graduate time perfecting skills in Clinical Pilates & Dry Needling. Sean has also completed his Sports Level 1 Certifications, & a Graduate Certificate in Human Nutrition. Sean is already talking about undertaking the gruelling Masters in Physiotherapy program (aka 'The Divorce Course' - for good reason). This boy is a glutton for punishment - but this attitude certainly benefits his clients. He simply can not hide his enthusiasm for results.
Sean is often seen roving the city, ducking in & out of corporate towers to perform Ergonomic Assessments. He must know that his client's work station is exemplary, a 'perfect fit' to the person. Why? Because, at the end of the day - we spend greater than 1/3 of our lives there.
Sean grew up playing competitive weekly sport, & thoroughly enjoyed cycling & running to keep fit. Sean understands the impact that injuries have on one’s work & social life, and in a broader sense – he understands the entire pain experience. He also understands the negative consequence on performance outputs (both at work & in sport). And he knows this ‘first hand’, as he has personally had to battle & conquer pain.
Sean has personally spent a lot of time on the physio treatment table growing up, and the necessary rehabilitation required to return to activity better than before. This ‘injury experience‘ helps Sean to help you. If he has physically lived the problem or pain, he can obviously better predict, & direct, your rehab path.
Sean loves physiotherapy. His eagerness to help clients get to a better place, such that they may attain their personal goals, is evident at first meeting. He can’t hide his enthusiasm behind that smile.
Outside of the clinic, Sean is passionate about all things health and fitness. Sean is regularly seen working out at the gym, on the tennis court, and on the road of a weekend dancing on the pedals of his bike.
