Mr Byron Michalandos

Having had plenty of sporting injuries over the years, Byron understands how an injury can impact your function and quality of life and is passionate about helping people overcome injuries to get them back participating in the activities they enjoy.

Byron completed a Doctor of Physiotherapy at Macquarie University and comes from an exercise science background, having previously studied Exercise Physiology at the University of Sydney.

Byron has vast experience treating a variety of injuries, including spinal pain, as well as muscle, tendon, ligament and joint injuries of the lower limb and shoulder for patients of all ages across the lifespan. In particular, Byron has a passion for treating sporting injuries and has worked in both recreational and elite sporting environments with the Canberra Raiders (NRL) and Fraser Park Football Club (NSW Premier League Soccer), as well as with professional contemporary dancers. A football (soccer) fanatic, playing locally in the Eastern suburbs, Byron has a special interest in helping footballers return to play and conducts outdoor soccer-specific rehab sessions to help footballers return to their pre-injury levels.

Byron also has extensive knowledge and skills in the management of hip/knee osteoarthritis, having undertaken clinical research in non-operative treatment options for hip and knee osteoarthritis and holds GLA:D certification to deliver treatment programs reflecting the latest research in management of osteoarthritis.

Byron practices an active approach to treatment utilising the latest scientific research that combines hands on techniques with exercises tailored to your individual goals and regular activities. He is a strong believer in empowering his patients to self manage their condition, providing thorough patient education to help his clients understand their condition, their expectations for recovery, what they can do to manage their symptoms and prevent relapses in the long term.

Outside of work, Byron enjoys keeping active, whether it’s bushwalks or football, discovering new restaurants and live music.
