About Us

PETER SHARP graduated as a Physiotherapist from Cumberland College of Health Sciences, the University of Sydney in 1993. He completed his Masters in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy at the University of Sydney in 2000. He has worked in a number of hospitals and private practices in the past 17 years and has owned St Leonards Physiotherapy since 2007.

SALLY HODGE has been a long time member of the St Leonards Physiotherapy team. She graduated with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Physiotherapy and then returned to Sydney University to complete a post graduate qualification in spinal manipulation and musculoskeletal therapy. Sally originally spent her early years working at RNSH  and then set up her own Physiotherapy practice in Willoughby which she had for 5 years before busy family life took over for a period of time.

Having a family of four boys has kept her busy over the last two decades and given her the opportunity to be very hands on with a number sporting injuries on and off the field.

Sally specialises in the treatment of sports injuries, back and neck pain.  She also is very fond of the elderly and believes keeping active is the key to good health.

Always up for an adventure, she loves skiing and hiking and is currently in training to climb Mount Kinabalu in Borneo this year.

Sallis is available in the rooms or home visit for assessment and treatment.

MICHAEL BUTTERS graduated from Sydney University with a Masters of Physiotherapy after previously completing a Masters of Occupational Health and Safety and Bachelor of Exercise Science at the University of Wollongong.  Michael has lectured and tutored in fields of exercise physiology and anatomy for over 10 years at the University of Wollongong, University of Western Sydney and most recently with Australian Catholic University.  Michael has also worked extensively as a personal trainer and an exercise physiologist in Australia and London.

Michael is a firm believer in the importance of appropriate and regular exercise programming to manage both chronic and acute injuries combined with specific manual therapy techniques to achieve the best possible outcomes for his patients. Michael uses a systematic approach to discover the cause of the problem and not just treat your painful area.  He has a special interest in treating patients with sporting injuries, neck and lower back pain, ergonomic assessments and chronic fatigue syndrome.

Outside of work Michael can be found running around on a squash court, mountain bike riding, training or scuba diving.

CHRIS ANDREANO’S lifelong appetite for sport and exercise led him into a Bachelor of Science at the University of Wollongong, majoring in Exercise Science and Rehabilitation. Chris then worked for a number of years as an Exercise Physiologist in the private rehabilitation sector, before graduating at the end of 2014 with a Masters of Physiotherapy from the University of Sydney.
