Maddy Parker - Senior Physiotherapist
Maddy graduated from Western Sydney University with a Bachelor of Health Sciences/Masters of Physiotherapy. Maddy's passion to become a Physiotherapist came from her own personal experience as a teenager, experiencing a medical condition with chronic headaches, spinal joint pain, and muscle weakness. After getting through her own intensive rehabilitation, she was amazed at the human body - its resilience, and ability to heal through with the right support team, therapy and lifestyle management. From this stems Maddy‘s interest in helping those experiencing chronic headaches/migraines - she understands the frustrations but then the wonderful outcomes that occur when finding the right team to support you on the road to recovery.  
Since graduation, she has always loved particularly working with those clients experiencing upper body, neck, TMJ and headaches, undergoing further training to effectively treat TMD (jaw-pain), neck, and thoracic spinal pain. Although over the years, she found there was a missing link in the long-term solutions, not just symptomatic treatment for her clients experiencing headache/migraines. After finding the Melbourne Headache Solutions team and training in the techniques used  she knew she had found the answers to help her clients thrive - not just survive!  
Maddy has recently relocated to Melbourne and is loving her time here. Outside work, Maddy enjoys living an active lifestyle be it daily pilates, bike-riding or swimming. She loves spending her spare time cooking, catching live music gigs, and outdoors exploring all of Australia’s natural beauty - especially her new playground in Victoria.
