What is it that you enjoy about working at Advanced Physio?
Working with a great group of people who are passionate about what they do. The facility is also the best I’ve worked in and is well equipped to suit all our patients from the elite sporting to the everyday person.
What additional study or qualifications do you have?
I am an APA sports physiotherapist after completing my Masters in Sports Physiotherapy. The Australian Physiotherapy Association has awarded me the title of “Sports Physiotherapist”. I have also attended numerous short courses and certifications including the internationally regarded Lyn Watson Shoulder course.
What conditions or people do you have a special interest in?
I enjoy treating all areas of the body, but have a particular interest in lower limb sporting injuries, biomechanics, injury prevention, running injuries and adolescent athletes. I also enjoy treating osteoarthritis of the knee and hip. I am the physiotherapist for the Newcastle Jets Women’s team, and travel extensively with the girls so I also have an interest in treating and rehabilitating soccer injuries. I have had several stints working as a Physiotherapist at the Australian Institute of Sport, and have gained valuable experience from my time there.
