"Health is not just being disease-free. Health is when every cell in your body is bouncing with JOY!" - Sadhguru
As the director and principle Physiotherapist at A to Z Physiotherapy, Jade Williams is passionate about creating sustainable and healthy lifestyles so you can perform and feel your best. She values the importance of listening to your story, taking the time to make sure you understand what's going on and empowering you to take charge of your health journey. She enjoys the 'complex' cases of general musculoskeletal Physiotherapy, foot/ankle injuries, and helping individuals of all ages and walks of life.
The performing arts have always been a huge part of Jade's life, with over 10 years dance experience, as well as her passion for singing, playing musical instruments and love for drama productions. Jade identified the need to provide quality holistic Physiotherapy for all individuals and specialised healthcare for dancers and performing artists in the North Queensland region. So the dream became reality and A to Z Physiotherapy was born!
After completing her Bachelor of Physiotherapy at James Cook University in 2014, Jade continues to attend various courses and conferences with health professionals and renown Dance Physiotherapists from around the world.
Jade is a member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association, the Australian Society for Performing Arts Healthcare, and the International Association for Dance Medicine and Science.
Jade works part time as a contract Physiotherapist for the Australian Defence Force. She has also been an employee at James Cook University over the years as a tutor and educator for Physiotherapy and allied health students.
In her spare time*, Jade loves exploring the outdoors with her husband (camping, road trips, hiking), taking their dogs on adventures, and spending time with family and friends. She enjoys yoga, pottery, swimming, sewing, singing, slacklining, cooking and baking (rarely using the recipe book) and generally living life in the moment.
*At the moment, she is on maternity leave so there are less "hobbies and free time" and more baby giggles and cuddles going on...late into the night!
As a nature lover and bare-foot bandit, Jade will find any excuse to take off her shoes and balance on everything she can find! She is secretly obsessed with chai lattes, scrunchies and funky happy socks.
