Paula Carleton grew up in Ireland and completed her Physiotherapy degree at Keele University in the UK in 2009. Since graduating Paula has worked in private practice both in Ireland and Australia. While it makes her feel old saying this, over the years Paula has gained extensive knowledge on a range of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions.
Paula has both a hands-on and holistic approach to treating patients. She is dedicated to identifying the true source of your injury or condition in order to help you treat it effectively. Educating patients about their injury is an integral aspect of Paula’s treatment techniques. This helps her to deliver and achieve the best possible health outcomes for you.
Paula is passionate about Pilates, in particular the reformer. Incorporating Pilates into your regular exercise routine provides plenty of well-rounded benefits especially as we progress through the various stages of life. If it is an appropriate and beneficial element of your recovery Paula will be happy to guide you through the various exercises.
When she’s not treating patients Paula is busy chauffeuring her kids around to various sporting and extracurricular activities or watching the latest Netflix box set. She also likes to squeeze in some swimming and Pilates reformer classes in her “spare time”.BOOK AN APPOINTMENT WITH PAULA

What to expect
If you have never been to a physio before, or you have but have never seen Paula Carleton before, then you may be wondering what to expect of your first appointment with her.
Paula has been a private-practice musculoskeletal physio for over 13 years. During this time she has seen and treated injuries from a range of settings including sport, post surgery, occupational health and pregnancy related musculoskeletal conditions.
On your first assessment Paula will complete a thorough review of your symptoms and medical history to identify the cause of your injury. This will allow her to tailor an individual treatment plan to suit your specific needs.
Paula utilises a wide array of treatment methods including massage, joint mobilisations, ultrasound, Pilates or core strengthening based exercises, gym-based exercise rehabilitation and dry needling to name but a few.
Paula is passionate about educating her patients on their pain or injury so they can become active in their recovery. Once the cause of your pain or dysfunction has been diagnosed Paula will discuss the findings with you and create a tailored home management plan for ongoing treatment.
If need be, Paula is in it for the long haul, but is aware many people booking a physio do not need much help at all. Often patients are just looking to feel or move a bit better than when they came in.
PHYSIOTHERAPY | BECOME PAIN FREE & ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS
We get clear on your goals
All our physios at The Movement Centre revel in the complexity and individuality of the human body. There is no such thing as a silly reason to see a physio, the body is a wonderful thing, but sometimes it does weird things (ours included). Regardless of what the underlying need for physiotherapy is, from providing peace of mind through performing quick checkups, helping people recover from little tweaks, or knuckling down for some serious rehab following surgery, significant injury or bouts or strong pain we want to be involved.
The strength of the physio is in the pack… Individually we have all spent years building our knowledge and skill base and as a team we come with decades of varied experience under our belts. Access one, access us all, our goal at The Movement Centre is to help you to move the correct way, to move pain free and to move for a lifetime.
