Our Team


David Adams

Principal Physiotherapist

David was born in “Windy Wellington” in New Zealand and completed his studies in Auckland.

We can all thank his career adviser at high school who suggested he should choose physiotherapy as he was smart enough to study it, and the kind of person who should work with people. This path has proven to be a great passion for David and a life changer for so many of his patients.

Over his 30 plus years in private practice, David has worked in New Zealand, Europe and Australia.


During this time he has encountered an extraordinary range of issues and developed expertise in a vast range of treatments.

His passion for further studies in both Eastern and Western philosophies has seen him work under some great teachers. Acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine, Polarity Therapy, Moxibustion, traditional Thai massage and clinical Pilates are just some of the treatment regimes and techniques that David uses every day.

Complicated issues? David is your guy! There is almost nothing that he doesn’t see as a welcome challenge and an excuse to dip into his very extensive “toolbox” of professional expertise.

David prides himself on being professional and understanding, with a hands-on approach.

We at Focus Physio, applaud his personable, caring manner and his highly intelligent approach to his work.

Janette Adams

Practice Manager

Born and bred in Melbourne, Janette is lucky enough to continue to be surrounded by her family and friends. Her perfect day would be spent pottering about in her abundant garden, spending time with her two daughters and her beloved husband (who may just be David Adams..) and topping it all off with a glass of cold champagne shared with friends.

Janette has spent most of her working life in the field of production and post production of television commercials. Never in her life would she have imagined that running a physiotherapy practice would be where she would happily settle!


We at Focus Physio are pleased that she has settled, as our patients enjoy her warm and friendly manner and professional attention to detail from the moment they walk in the door. She is also doing a fabulous job managing Focus Physio social media with her quick wit and sharp mind.

Janette is always available to answer any questions you may have or at least point you in the right direction. She sees her role in Focus Physio as an equal balance of supporting our team, and supporting you, the patient – our most valued team member.

Kylie was excited to join the wonderful team at Focus Physio in 2018, after her youngest child started school. Previously, she has had many years in customer service roles, combined with study and work as a remedial massage therapist.

She brings a warm, friendly, caring manner to our clinic and helps with the smooth day to day running of a busy Reception.
