Michelle Young (BPhty 2003)
Michelle is the director, owner and physiotherapist of North Brisbane Kids Physiotherapy. Graduating from the University of Queensland in 2003, Michelle had a passion to work with infants and children and earned the new graduate physiotherapist position at the Brisbane Royal Children’s Hospital. Through quality mentoring and guidance from some of Brisbane’s leading paediatric physiotherapists, Michelle gained invaluable paediatric experience early in her career.
Michelle’s dedication to working with children then led her to the Children’s Therapy Services based on the northside of Brisbane. She worked within a multidisciplinary team of speech and occupational therapists, social workers, psychologists, paediatricians and orthotists to provide a holistic approach of therapy to children and their families.
In 2008, Michelle and her husband started a private practice, Rothwell Physiotherapy / Rothwell Kids Physio. The physiotherapy services provided to infants, toddlers and children outgrew the space at Rothwell Physiotherapy, and the demand for paediatric physiotherapy services has led to the opening of North Brisbane Kids Physiotherapy.
Michelle has continued to further her knowledge in paediatric services through ongoing professional development courses. She has a special interest in treating children with neurological and chromosomal disorders, developmental coordination disorders, gross motor delays and orthopaedic conditions (foot anomalies, plagiocephaly).
