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 physiotherapist 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.
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 physiotherapy 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.
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, I’d grab it.
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.
Matthew is one of our most senior physiotherapists, & as such, higher service fees apply to see Matt.

THE BORING STUFF:
MSc Physiotherapy | BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Science
Hayley is a very strong, confident young lady that exercises & trains herself… a lot. Hayley has almost 10 years experience treating sports & spinal injuries, & she most definitely ‘knows her stuff’. Like all great physios, if you have a personal history of pain or injury in your chosen sport & exercise pursuits, then you intimately understand the pain experience & all of the frustrations that accompany such a journey. You simply can not replace this element, & it intuitively empowers physios when they are assigned to helping others return from pain & suffering. Hayley just gets it, and she will very quickly ‘get you’.
Couple this rather natural, organically driven, physio ‘know how’, and underpin it with 2 classy degrees and you now have a highly skilled, always empathetic, very effective physiotherapist. The foundations of Hayley’s Masters in Physiotherapy is the science backbone that allows for some artistic interpretation when it comes to the exercise delivery. Hayley knows when to use the hands (and these hands are strong) to provide the ‘feel good’ hands on relief, and when to jump out into the gym and prescribe just the right exercises to get your movement patterns humming once again.
Hayley holds a both Master’s Degree in Physiotherapy, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Sport Science. Together, this tirade of tuition has equipped her with a comprehensive understanding of human anatomy, movement mechanics, loading patterns and rehabilitation techniques. This educational foundation has provided Hayley with the knowledge necessary to effectively listen and assess, diagnose and educate, and efficiently develop a tailored treatment plan for individuals seeking a rapid recovery from various injuries and conditions.In private clinics like Evoker, things move quickly, and Hayley has learned to work well in a collaborative team, absorb pressure and manage case variations ‘on the run’. Near 10 years of fast paced experiences have allowed Hayley to excel at her job, no matter the case, the body region, or the patient’s likely high sporting demands. Hayley has all aspects of treatment covered. From acute pain (think bruised and swollen) management, to a reintroduction of impact with jump, hop, run… and everything ‘gym & load’ in between.
Some physios have the gift, most do not. Hayley is one that most definitely ‘just gets it’. She will listen to you very carefully, and you will never need to tell her anything twice. Be prepared to move fast with Hayley, she is not here to mess around. Hayley is known for her diligent work ethic, friendly demeanour, and collaborative approach to problem-solving. She builds strong relationships with patients, quite simply – because she cares, and she nurtures trust as she begins to get your pain down and relief up. Expect Hayley to encourage your active involvement in your personalised path to a pain free recovery. Hayley genuinely cares about your result on the day that you walk out of the halls of Evoker. Hayley wants to see you at 110% with both prevention and performance high – such that she never sees you for the same problem again.
Hayley is here to help YOU!

Trish is always hungry (starving!) for more knowledge, and she tackles all challenges head on, whilst constantly managing to radiate positivity and love – a rare, but refreshing balance.
A physio that also pushes their own body in exercise, a physio that regularly trains, is the one that you want to see.
As Trish chargers through her own personal training, and tests the limits of her own body, she is gaining invaluable insight into how to navigate a path out of discomfort (for her own pain experiences).
She will not only intimately understand how it feels to be in your position, but she also knows what it takes to get you out of that place, and fast.
A physio that has sat in the patient chair, many times, is always better for it when sitting on the other side of the table – in the physio chair.
Trish understands your pain experience, she knows precisely how it feels, and how frustrating it is.
She knows what’s required of both her care, and you (the patient), in order to get you a result in the shortest period of time.
Having had her own fair share of injuries, and being a ‘stubborn’ athlete herself, Trish has ‘been there and done that’ and is ready to help you be there and do it too!
Trish graduated from the prestigious University of Sydney in 2018, with first-class honours, and she has worked in the very demanding arena of private practice physiotherapy in Sydney ever since.
Following her honours thesis on breast cancer and lymphoedema, Trish has developed a keen interest in all things women’s wellness.
As a physiotherapist, Trish is attentive, caring and realistic.
Her education is empowering, and her ‘hands on’ treatment is powerful.
Couple this with her enthusiastic exercise prescription, and her patients are back to 110% in no time.
Trish will brightly shine the light on your fastest path to recovery, and she will sit next to you and hold your hand whilst on the sometimes bumpy rollercoaster ride to ‘no pain’.
Trish has experience working with elite athletes, the super busy city worker, valuable members of the general population, and she will tailor her treatment plan and timeline to the individual.
Trish has experience working with both professional AFL and elite soccer teams.
From the gruelling education system in Singapore, to growing up in China, and now excelling in Sydney, Trish can adapt to most any environment.
Her personal love for fitness, and the body, drives her to continually try new sports and exercises.
This is where Trish lives – she does not stop learning new techniques and new skills.
