Michael Jacovelli


Bachelor of Physiotherapy


Michael graduated from Australian Catholic University (ACU) Ballarat with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy degree. Although Michael thoroughly enjoyed his time spent in Ballarat, he is looking forward to moving back to Melbourne.

Michael developed a passion for hand therapy during a clinical placement he had at Action Rehab in Berwick. He believes this passion grew from his interest in the anatomy of the upper limb and seeing the direct impact that hand therapy can have on someone’s life as well as the friendly environment he experienced at Action Rehab.

Michael strives to help patients return to their pre-injury level, whether that be work, sport or anything that is important to them. Michael particularly enjoys staying up to date with the latest in hand therapy research and developing tailored rehabilitation programs for his patients. Michael conducts his research on injury prevention and management with the aim of helping and educating his patients on how to stay safe, fit and healthy.

Michael is continuously trying to improve himself as a clinician and ensure he provides the best patient centred care. Michael wishes clients to enjoy their experience in their sessions with him, ensuring they feel listened to and educated about their injury. Michael wants his patients to enjoy their rehabilitation experience and be motivated to achieve their goals.

Outside of work you’ll find Michael on the soccer field or in the gym. He is a passionate Hawthorn supporter who will let people know about the 3peat. He also loves spending time outdoors and with family and friends. Michael is passionate about becoming the best version of yourself and believes being an active, healthy individual contributes to this.

Michael, along with the rest of the Action Rehab team emphasise functional rehabilitation and getting people back to doing what they love and need to do as soon as possible.
