Danielle McReynolds


Dani’s love for Physiotherapy started when she underwent a spinal fusion for scoliosis as a teenager. Dani realised how much of a positive impact Physiotherapy had on her life and consequently pursued Physio as a career so that she could have that same impact helping others. After finishing school in Canberra, Dani was ready for a change of scenery and moved to sunny Newcastle where she completed a Bachelor of Physiotherapy. It was here she learnt just how important it was to move well and take care of any ‘niggles.’

Dani went straight into private practice after finishing university.  Here she worked with multiple first grade NPL soccer teams and the Crossfit community, including with athletes at Crossfit regionals. Working within Crossfit, Pilates and yoga communities in Newcastle, Dani came to understand just how prevalent Women’s Health conditions are. With this new interest growing, Dani completed further training with professional development courses specifically in pelvic floor Physiotherapy. Dani has loved this area so much, she is currently undertaking a post graduate certificate in pelvic floor physiotherapy at the University of Melbourne.

Dani is qualified in all different types of pilates including clinical, matwork, reformer, and pre and post natal Pilates, and is also a qualified personal trainer. Dani has completed courses in dry needling and likes to use this in conjunction with other hands-on techniques.  When treating musculoskeletal conditions, Dani takes a practical approach with a focus on exercise based rehabilitation.

Having moved back to Canberra to be closer to family in 2021, you will also find Dani doing Crossfit, HIIT classes and Pilates, as well as taking her Cavoodle Nessie, up any mountain (and regularly carrying her half way!). Dani has recently discovered yoga and has been enjoying the benefits of this, even if she does find it hard to sit still!
