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 physical therapist 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.
PHYSIOTHERAPIST & CLEVER CORE CURATOR
MSc Phty (Physiotherapy) BPhe (Kinesiology)
Monique is one of our 'Clever Core' exercise rehab physios at Barangaroo and at Martin Place. 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 instructor for you!
‘Moe knows’ high performance exercise & training. Moe knows teaching. Moe knows physiotherapy pain, anatomy & pathology. Moe knows core stability – back to front, side to side & top to bottom. If you are looking to exercise rehab as a pain management strategy, or, if you are looking for 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 physical therapy. 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 ‘Clever Core’ classes within the clinic, for a maximum of 4 people, for several years now. Monique’s exercise 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 exercise class.
Matt has worked with elite players of the Australian Rugby Union (the Wallabies). It must be said though, you do not need to be 'elite' to see Matt. He loves working with athletes (well, people) of all activity levels.
From young players charging through the grades, to guys & girls that simply love their sport & exercise. As a former rugby player himself, Matt's personal love of sport & exercise fuels his own 'need' & desire to better understand the bodies performance capabilities, & the bodies pain processing pathways. Matt's rehab exercise repertoire is rather distinguished.
Matt is an extremely likeable young man, & it is no surprise that he is in demand at Martin Place. If you happen to see an available appointment with Matt in the near future, grab it.
Matthew is an experienced, yet exciting, physical therapist with a very bright future ahead. His personal love of sport and exercise fuels his own personal ‘need’ & desire to better understand both the bodies pain experience & performance metrics – namely our limitations to doing ‘what we love’.
Former rugby player, & now avid fan, Matt is a strong physio with a soft touch. He has great manual skills, which form the foundation of his work – manual therapy. He compliments his manual work with comprehensive exercise pieces. Again, his love of exercise and a real respect for his own training, is the basis here for an intelligent physio that is tremendous with exercise prescription.
Matt has integrity. He is authentic – what you see is what you get. Matthew has an infectious smile, & he truly enjoys seeing his patients succeed in all that they do.
CLEVER CORE CURATOR & WOMENS WELLNESS PHYSIO
Yvonne graduated from the University of Sydney in 2013 and has been working in the musculoskeletal field of sports & spinal injury management since late 2013.
Yvonne's physical therapy career has spanned across various settings, from post operative orthopaedics, to public outpatients and private musculoskeletal clinics. This gives Yvonne a broad range of experiences when dealing with patients from the early acute stages of injury, right through to the late stages of rehab.
From a keen sporting background of netball and competitive swimming to more recently cycling and running, Yvonne can appreciate what is involved in training, the obstacles and the rollercoasters and its importance to each individual.
Throughout her own experiences, she has utilised pilates and has seen its benefits in her ability to perform. She has since completed further training to become an APPI certified pilates instructor.
Yvonne has completed further training in running gait analysis and dry needling as well as utilising a hands on approach in order to provide a range of treatment approaches to cater for her patient’s various needs.
Yvonne has also completed further post-graduate training with the Women’s Health Training Association. She has a love of women’s wellness, and a very special interest in the conditions that may exist for women of all ages with challenges in and around the pelvic floor.
Yvonne has just returned home to Sydney after 2.5 years working with the active ambitious clientele of central London and is eager to embrace the similar context of the vibrant Barangaroo scene.
Yvonne is fascinated by the body, the nervous system and its endless potential to change and improve. She believes in empowering her patients to understand their body so that they can perform at their best.
Caitlin is currently on Maternity leave with little Hugo and will be returning March 2023
CLEVER CORE CURATOR & WOMENS WELLNESS PHYSIO
Caitlin is a strong & intelligent young lady who has crammed a ‘hell of a lot’ into the 8 years of her physiotherapy career. Caitlin is a fantastic physical therapist, a courageous triathlete, & most importantly - a warm woman with a genuine passion for improving women’s health outcomes (we call it women’s wellness at Evoker).
Graduating from the University of Sydney with First Class Honours is no small feat – ‘intelligent’ doesn’t actually do this justice.
Caitlin worked intensively in some of Sydney’s major hospitals, fast becoming a leader in this environment (at such a young age) & accepting department management roles. She’s good.
Caitlin has a real love & passion for her own exercise and performance (she cycles into work everyday), & competes in 1 tough, gritty, endurance based sport – the triathlon. That ‘thing’ is character building.
This competitive streak, naturally, has led to a passion for staying fit & healthy, hence a move into the private practice sectors of physio, despite the successes of the hospital world that Caitlin did enjoy.
Caitlin has followed her heart to Evoker here in the CBD of Sydney. Caitlin specifically said that she wanted a group that was going to push her to be the absolute best physio that she could be. Fair to say that we are a good fit for one another.
Caitlin now chooses to spend her time helping those who are in need of improvement with their bodies function & performance, both in everyday life and across a range of sporting pursuits, and utilises dry needling as indicated. She has a love of women’s wellness, and a very special interest in the conditions that may exist alongside that incredibly rewarding pathway to motherhood and for women of all ages with challenges in and around the pelvis. She has completed a stack of further post-graduate training with the Women’s Health Training Association in pelvic floor, anorectal dysfunction, birth preparation and recovery, and pelvic pain conditions.
Caitlin has spent the last 5 years teaching a tonne of clinical pilates, or core strength work, and she certainly practices what she preaches here. Caitlin uses her Clinical Pilates knowledge and IP to ensure that she personally stays strong, and injury free, with her own weekly reformer sessions. This is some of the most important weekly training that Caitlin does in preparation for her triathlon events.
You can find Caitlin at Martin Place, gently nursing somebody out of pain in the physio room, or out front of the class, strong… but friendly, as leader of our small group Clever Core Classes.
Expect: Coupled with a warm smile, & ‘a laugh’, will be a very clever young lady who will find your pain fast, and gently but confidently guide you to a result. The result may well involve some ‘clever’ core, led by this strong woman.
APA PHYSIOTHERAPIST, CLEVER CORE CURATOR & BIKE FIT
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 physical therapy. 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.
Expect: A warm smile coupled with a friendly chat, thorough education of diagnosis and rehab pathways, ‘hands on’ physio, super accurate exercise prescription, & ‘Clever Core’ for all things core stability.

BHM / Doctor of Physiotherapy
Nicola is a bright, fun, energetic & intelligent physio… with many degrees. She completed her Doctor of Physiotherapy at Macquarie University in Sydney, after completing a Bachelor of Human Movement (Exercise & Sports Science) at UTS. Nicola has found a home in the demanding world of private practice ever since, & you can not wipe the smile off her face. Nicola’s particularly positive energy can be felt throughout the halls of Evoker for miles.
After many, many injuries, & much time spent ‘being the patient’ in her sporting years, Nicola developed a love for helping others. She has felt what you are feeling now. She gets your ‘injury frustrations’. The shoe has been on the other foot for some time now, & Nicola is the one in the consultant’s seat, treating these injuries herself – & with great success. Nicola did gain invaluable experience working with various Netball & Rugby teams, providing more urgent ‘on field’ or ‘sideline’ assessment & treatment.
Nicola screams out loud (joyfully), when a lower limb injury ‘walks’ into her room. She is a passionate physical therapist who is all about incorporating an active, or exercise based treatment approach (at the ‘right’ time), that accompanies her accurate, but warm ‘hands on’ treatment. When these two treatment approaches are coupled together (with great accuracy, & a side of ‘firmness), you get an emotionally empowered patient that sprints out of pain, & springs back into high performance.
Nicola has also had extensive training in ‘Polestar Informed Pilates’, & it is no surprise that she LOVES the opportunity to teach her patients the correct Pilates form (both mat & reformer). This will get your core burning, & your injury prevention up. Nicola also runs some of Evoker’s most popular reformer Pilates classes. Outside of work, Nicola is a SPORTS NUT. She loves playing Netball, watching live sport – of any kind, & she’ll attempt to pat every dog she walks past.
You are in good hands with Nicola. You will be hard pressed to find a more caring soul in the physio world! She simply cares, a lot. She’ll bend over backwards for you… to get you the result that you need.
