Physiotherapist & Clinical Pilates Instructor
I have over 20 years clinical experience in private practice treating musculoskeletal, spinal and sports injuries. I completed two degrees, a Bachelor of Physiotherapy (Curtin University), and a Bachelor of Physical and Health Education (UWA), plus all four levels of DMA Clinical Pilates. I enjoy integrating manual therapy and active rehabilitation in my approach to injury management.
I’ve worked both locally in Perth and overseas, and recently returned from Singapore where I owned a successful physiotherapy and pilates practice for several years. I have worked with various patient populations such as back/neck pain patients (with or without an ergonomic focus) and sports injury patients with a focus on triathletes, cyclists, runners, footballers, golfers and dancers.
There are many facets to my job that I enjoy, but I particularly like the challenge of problem solving and tailoring treatment plans and goals to the client’s specific needs. I believe empowering people with knowledge and solutions makes a difference in people’s lives.
I’m very focused on understanding the biomechanics and cause behind your injury/pain to ensure the correct manual therapy and functional rehabilitation approach is used to optimise recovery and injury prevention.
My areas of special clinical interest include:
- Spine – back and neck
- Hip/groin injury
- Knee injury and rehabilitation
- Ankle injury and rehabilitation
- Sports related injuries
- Clinical pilates – private and small groups
