Persistent pain requires a multidimensional approach to treatment.
Early in my career, I worked for some inspirational physios who nurtured my passion for getting to the bottom of a problem. I completed further studies in Exercise and Sports Science, Functional Anatomy, and Biomechanics and was team physio for football and netball clubs. I toured with the Australian Ski Team to the world cup and competed myself at a national level.
I was awarded the title of Specialist Sports and Exercise Physiotherapist in 1999.
Always with a thirst for knowledge, I added many complementary therapies to Physiotherapy. I have always been interested in more than just the muscles and joints. I love treating the nervous system, helping adjust lifestyle for good health, and applying complementary therapies including Yoga therapy, Craniosacral therapy, visceral therapy and “Connect Therapy”. I treat using a holistic biopsychosocial approach.
I enjoy treating persistent pain particularly where the accumulation of injuries over years can make treatment more challenging.
Problems are often multifactorial. The source of pain is often a physical imbalance elsewhere in the body or may even lie with emotional or lifestyle causes.
The combination of Physio and Yoga has kept me fit and healthy and enjoying all the things I want to do. I have had my fair share of injuries as a skier and horserider. After multiple knee surgeries I just recently had a knee replacement. For years I managed arthritis with Yoga and have now used it to rehabilitate after my knee replacement.
I’m a mother, a perpetual student, a keen gardener, love travelling and especially getting out into nature.
