A BUSINESS scholarship led physiotherapist Orlando Meehan to move from regional WA to start his own practice in Westminster.
Mr Meehan received $70,000 as part of Back in Motion’s practice launch scholarship program.
He was working as a physiotherapist in Port Hedland and returned to Perth with his wife Melissa to open the Back in Motion practice on Wanneroo Road this year.
“We have spent the last two years working hard to save for the fit-out of the store and to find the perfect location,” Mr Meehan said.
“When we secured the building in August of last year, we asked a good friend of ours, Courtney Payne, to join us in our undertaking and become a business partner.”
He said staff did not believe in “quick fixes” and instead focused on education and preventative measures.
The business offers clinical pilates, deep tissue massage, dry needling, as well as hands-on physiotherapy.
