Todd Bird

My name is Todd Bird, I am a qualified Physiotherapist and the Director of Peak Sports Physiotherapy.

I started Peak Sports Physiotherapy with the aim of providing the highest-quality physiotherapy service available to the North East community. My clinical interests cover all musculoskeletal and sporting injuries; however, I am particularly interested in lower limb rehabilitation and running-related injuries.

My qualifications include graduating from Charles Sturt University in 2010 and completing a graduate certificate in Sports Physiotherapy in 2015. After taking a break from study, I am now completing my Master of Sports Physiotherapy through Latrobe University.

Outside of work, I love sport and keeping fit. Over the past few years, I have competed in triathlons at an elite level, and have recently returned to playing footy. I also love music and playing the guitar.

Josh Rankin

My name is Josh Rankin and I’m originally from a regional cattle farming community in Northern NSW. I enjoyed an active upbringing and eventually pursued a Bachelor degree in Sport and Exercise Science. In 2014 I relocated to Brisbane to commence post-graduate studies at the University of Queensland, obtaining a Masters degree in Physiotherapy, and meeting a Benalla local who is now my lovely fiancé.

I lived and worked on beautiful Bribie Island for two and a half years before taking off around the world on the trip of a lifetime! More recently I spent 12 months in Alice Springs, working alongside a number of excellent physios and Sports Physicians, providing the best-quality care to the people of the Red Centre. I returned to Benalla in early 2021, where I hope to settle and raise a family.

I have a love of live music, hiking, and team sports, and hope to get involved in the many community events on offer here in the North East. I look forward to meeting you!

Abby Rickard

After completing a Bachelor of Applied Sciences and Masters of Physiotherapy at LaTrobe University Melbourne, Abby treated a variety of musculoskeletal injuries in Private Practice within inner-city Melbourne.

Abby has now made the move back home to Wangaratta and is excited to help and support this growing community. Taking a holistic approach and tailoring treatment plans to each unique individual is at the forefront of Abby’s practice.

She has a strong interest in using a combination of manual therapy, and exercise to improve the way people move in everyday life and sporting endeavours. This has led to her starting a Masters of Exercise Science (Strength and Conditioning) through Edith Cowan University, which she is currently completing. Outside of work, Abby enjoys any sport and outdoor activities, such as hiking, horse riding, and netball.
