Director and Principal Physiotherapist
My name is Colin Sau, I am the director and physiotherapist at Evolution Health Clinic. Congratulations on taking the first step to improving your health.
My Approach: Manual therapist, Goal-Oriented and Holistic
It begins by finding the pain source, most of the time it is not where you think it is. With years of experience in private practice and working closely with the national athletics championship team and local AFL team, I have a clear understanding what is a normal movement pattern and what is not.
After identifying such underlying dysfunctional movement patterns I am then able to implement my hands on techniques to restore normal movement and pain. A functional exercise program usually follows to ensure that such dysfunctional movement patterns are corrected so that your pain does not come back.
Some of the treatment techniques I offer:
- Jaw pain, Temporo-Mandibular Joint Disorders
- Spinal Manipulative Therapy
- Mckenzie Mechanical Diagnosis and Treatment
- Mulligans Joint Mobilisations
- Sports Taping
- Western Acupuncture / Dry Needling
- Post-Surgery Orthopaedic Rehabilitation
- Soft Tissue Work, Trigger Point Therapy

My field of interest is jaw pain and temporo-mandibular joint disorders and I have trained under the Dento-Myo-Arthopathy Concepts, a course that has been recently developed by dental specialists and TMJ physiotherapists. This field of study is quite niche and not many health professionals can perform specific hands on treatment techniques for the jaw. Check out my blog to learn more about TMJ issues.
I also run calisthenics classes for beginners and advanced athletes of all ages. Individual coaching is also available for those looking to learn a specific skill or want to perfect their form in the sport.
Read my blog to find out more about what calisthenics is all about and how to join my class.
Why did I become a Physiotherapist?
I chose physio because health is the most important thing in life. I inspire others to live healthier lives.
I do that by guiding them through my expertise so that they can feel stronger not just physically but also mentally. An occupation in physiotherapy provides you with the right tools for empowerment so much so that it can affect every aspect of someone’s life..... enough to set them up to their own success. An example is one of my clients that I rehabilitated from not being able to walk to now being able to run marathons.
The key is within you. I am here to help you find it.
Calisthenics, gymnastics, motor sports.
I can speak Chinese (Teochew).
