Leeloo Yang – Ellenbrook, Kinross and Maddington Physiotherapist

Leeloo graduated from Curtin University (Bentley, Western Australia), and has been a keen member of the Perth Physiotherapy team since 2019. She finds it rewarding to help patients get relief from their pain and help for their injuries.

During her undergraduate studies, Leeloo worked closely with remedial massage therapists from different cultural backgrounds, and evaluated and addressed musculoskeletal issues with a clinical approach.

Just like our other practitioners, Leeloo is confident in providing acute and ongoing care for patients with Chronic Disease Management, Motor Injury Insurance, Workers’ Compensation, and National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

Leeloo is particularly interested in managing peripheral pathologies. These include tennis and golfer’s elbow, subacromial bursitis, rotator cuff tendinopathy, gluteal tendinopathy, and patellofemoral pain syndrome. She can also address traumatic or overuse injuries to the hand and foot, and other sports or work-related injuries.

Additionally, Leeloo’s interest in human pathophysiology extends into women’s health issues, prenatal and postnatal care, and pelvic floor dysfunctions. She developed interest in these areas thanks to her time at Women’s Health Clinics, Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital, as well as her training with the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute (APPI).

Leeloo has the following qualifications:

  • Bachelor of Science (Physiotherapy)
  • APPI Pilates Matwork Level 1-3
  • APPI Pilates Equipment Level 1-4
  • Acupuncture and Dry Needling
  • Mental Health First Aid (MHFA)

I’ve been in Perth since 2014 and feel lucky to be part of a supportive team in this lovely community. It’s fulfilling to use my hands and brain every day, witness people getting better and better, and feel deeply appreciated as a person.

Outside of work, Leeloo loves experimenting with paint brushes and food ingredients, as well as going out with friends, rock climbing and rollerblading. She is passionate about living an active lifestyle, pursuing personal growth and maintaining inner peace.

John Connolly

John Connolly Physiotherapist

John Connolly

As a keen athlete, initially playing soccer, from childhood up to his twenties, John struggled with injuries. As a result, he began to take more of an interest in his own health and wellbeing, which led him to physiotherapy.

John knew the frustration of not being able to pursue your passions in life because of injury. That made him want to understand physiotherapy better. Now, he’s able to help people make sense of their pain, by educating and empowering them, to get back to living their lives.

Education and More

John received a Diploma in Allied Health Professions at the City of Liverpool College. He then went on to attend the University of Central Lancashire in the UK, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Physiotherapy with Honours.

He has worked with the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK, working with musculoskeletal ailments at all levels—acute, chronic, pre- and post operative. John has worked on rehabilitation of NDIS patients with brain and/or spinal cord injuries, and sub-contracted as an occupational health professional for BHP. He also has experience working with DVA patients.

Working With You

The most fulfilling aspect of John’s job is working together with his patients to achieve a goal. It doesn’t matter whether it’s short-term, like walking up a flight of stairs, or a long-term goal, such as completing a 5K run.

Patients who trust and work with John always have the best outcomes. His philosophy:

Whether you think you can, or you can’t—you’re right.

Away From Work

When John’s not at work, he likes participating in weight-lifting, mixed martial arts, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and soccer.

He also provides content on all things physiotherapy—@physio_in_perth.
