Whilst I have all the academic qualifications from physiotherapy, it is my 30+ years of acrobatic training that has given me a deeper understanding of human movement in all its forms. If you can combine the science, the creative expression, and the pure enjoyment of moving well, then I think you‘re definitely on the right track no matter whether you’re using your body for sport, art or work.
I am also a Senior Facilitator at our partner business Power Living Yoga, where I enjoy seeing all of these elements come together on that mat to enhance people’s physical and mental health and wellness.
Clinical Interests: Sports Medicine, Adolescent Athletes, Spinal Dysfunction, Post-Operative Orthopaedic Rehabilitation including Joint Replacement , Knee and Shoulder Pain
Since graduating in 1987 I have been fortunate to work in many countries including Australia, Canada and Great Britain. In 1993 I moved to Colorado, U.S.A. and chose to focus my clinical practice on management of orthopaedic dysfunction. My experience abroad has introduced me to a wide variety of conditions and treatment options enabling me to integrate a unique range of skills into my practice at Active Bodies Physiotherapy.
Outside of the office, I also act as Head Physiotherapist at Cumberland United Women‘s Football Club, one of the inaugural Women’s National Premier League clubs in South Australia. In this role I manage elite level athletes dealing with both acute and chronic injuries. Comprehensive evaluation of faulty movement patterns and a greater understanding of the demands placed upon the musculoskeletal system in high performance athletes are necessary for successful outcomes in this environment and I enjoy applying similar principles of management to my daily caseload.
My approach to patient care commences by gaining an understanding of each individual and their specific goals followed by a detailed biomechanical assessment. Treatment is customised to each client and involves the use of various manual therapy techniques in addition to instruction in neuromuscular retraining programs to help correct movement disorders. I am also able to offer Dry Needling if appropriate. I encourage clients to be actively involved in their treatment program as those that are engaged tend to experience positive long term results.
My personal interests include a passion for travel (obviously!), cycling, triathlon, telemark skiing and involvement with my family in youth sport.
