The Physio Rooms Woodvale

Our Team

David Makinson

Physiotherapist and Director

Co-creator, director and leading physiotherapist at The Physio Rooms, David brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and passion to all of his roles.

David has over 16 years of clinical experience, including completing his qualification and Masters in Physiotherapy in the UK. He has worked and travelled extensively in the UK, New Zealand and Australia, settling and starting a family in Perth.

David and Ash established The Physio Rooms Woodvale together in 2018. Since then, David has been a passionate and giving member of the community, who thrives on providing excellent healthcare to all his patients. He has a particular interest in chronic and persistent pain, along with achieving long term goals with patients. More recently, David has found a new passion in his role in training and providing ongoing professional development to other physiotherapists, particularly when it comes to evidence-based practice. This is reflected in the skills of all our staff at The Physio Rooms.

Outside of work, David is an enthusiastic member of the Woodvale Football Club, an avid gardener, and keeps active spending time with his young family.

Ashleigh Prestage (ne Dobson)

Physiotherapist and Director

Ash is our co-director and established The Physio Rooms Woodvale alongside David in 2018, with a plan to combine her excellent clinical skills and level of patient care, with a space that provided opportunity for rehabilitation, exercise and to utilise her experience in Clinical Pilates.

Ash has over 13 years’ experience as a physiotherapist and Clinical Pilates instructor, specialising in patient recovery and rehabilitation. She is passionate about treating all facets of health and injury, maintaining the goal of exceeding patient expectations in their recovery.

Ash studied and grew up locally. Outside of work her interests revolve around the outdoors, keeping active, travelling, music and footy. Above all else, Ash values spending time with her family. She currently is in the clinic part time whilst she raises her 2 year old twins.

Brittany Greene


Since joining us in 2022, Brittany has quickly become a beloved member of our team at The Physio Rooms. Brittany has also completed a degree in both Physiotherapy and Exercise and Sport Science, along with a Cert. IV in Reformer and Matwork Pilates, and a Cert. IV in Massage Therapy.

Her studies make her uniquely qualified to be skilled in both her manual treatment techniques as well as her guidance in recovery, rehabilitation and exercise prescription. She is dedicated to helping patients achieve their goals, no matter how big or small they may be.

Brittany’s main area of interest, however, is Women’s Pelvic Health, and her most recent studies include the completion of her APA Level 1 Women’s Health course, with Level 2 coming up this year. This means Brittany is uniquely qualified to treat issues including bladder dysfunction, bowel dysfunction, prolapse, and rectus abdominis diastasis, as well as provide excellent pre- and post- natal advice and care. Find out more about this on our “services” page.

Outside of work, Brittany has a passion for cooking, keeping active in the company of friends, spending time with her friends, and of course her wonderful dog Blackjack – who you may even glimpse around the clinic from time to time.

Most excitingly, Brittany is currently on maternity leave, enjoying the precious moments with her new baby girl. She will be rejoining our staff in September 2024.

Liz Dronfield


We are incredibly excited to have our newest physiotherapist (and superstar netballer) Liz joining our team in 2023.

Like our other staff, Liz is passionate about working with patients to achieve their goals. She is particularly excited about working with sporting injuries and aiding recovery, rehabilitation and return to play.

Liz takes a keen interest in leading an active and healthy lifestyle herself. She is our high-level netballer and has impressively represented her state and country in competitive netball competitions.

Across her academic and sporting career, Liz has been exposed to the importance of physiotherapy and the benefits of a strong patient-therapist relationship.

Her experience and exposure as an elite athlete in a competitive sporting industry puts her in a uniquely qualified position to relate to her patients, and she constantly strives to integrate this into her clinical care.
