I'm Jamie Page and I'm one of the directors of Butel Health Services along with Scott Gentle.
I graduated from Salford University U.K. in 2005, with a BSc in Sports Rehabilitation. I moved to Australia the same year and completed my Masters in Physiotherapy at Sydney University in 2008.
I had originally worked as a personal trainer and completed a Personal Training and Sports Therapy Diploma in 2002. My background from personal training to physiotherapy ensured I became very passionate about how people move and how to motivate people in multiple areas of health.
I recently have become more interested in complex chronic pain or reoccurring pain. What I ask myself with these patients is are you complex bio-mechanically with structural compromise or are you complex systemically/biological? Or are you a combination of both? With this I consider key foundations for health beyond biomechanics and structure including how their diet, sleep, stress and general exercise may interact with their presentation.
I've also become fascinated with how genetics can explain health challenges completing a course with SmartDNA. This allows me to help explain genetic issues with respect to inflammation, collagen synthesis, fat metabolism, nutrient deficiencies, detoxification pathways and oxidative stress to name but a few. I have found this very useful for my own health and patients struggling for answers with their health.
With acute injury I maintain up to date evidence based practice and regularly review new research and evolve my interventions accordingly. I have a musculoskeletal approach to physiotherapy within this setting involving looking at posture and biomechanics as a factor in performance, injury and recovery.
I have completed numerous post-graduate courses including dry needling, myo-fascial release, articular and muscle energy techniques and pain education workshops with Butler and Moseley.
My particular musculoskeletal interest is with hip and shoulder dysfunction and muscle function around these joints. I have completed Dr Alison Grimaldi’s dynamic hip retraining course and Dr Jeremy Lewis’ Shoulder Theory and Practice. I have also completed completed Dean Watsons headache level 1 course. I have previously run workshops in this area for personal trainers on methods to improve training clients more appropriately in the gym environment.
I additionally run a personal training studio in Darlinghurst doing a combination of physiotherapy and physiotherapy-based personal training. If you are interested in making a booking in Darlinghurst, please call me on 0431 124 441.
