B.App.Sc Physiotherapy APAM
Having graduated from Cumberland College of Health Sciences (now Sydney University) in 1989, I have been a registered practising Physiotherapist for over 25 years.
I spent my initial 5 years working at Nepean and Governor Phillip Hospitals in Penrith gaining experience in the management of acute and chronic Musculoskeletal, Neurological, Rheumatologic conditions and Hydrotherapy.
Since 1994 I have worked in private practice (Wentworthville 1994-2006, Dural/ Round Corner 2006-2011), caring for a wide variety of patient types, of all ages. This has included but not limited to Sporting Injuries-both acute and chronic, Musculoskeletal injuries and conditions, Orthopaedic Rehabilitation, Workers Compensation, Third party and Rheumatologic conditions.
I enjoy treating clients of all ages and like to take a personal involvement in the care of my patients.
My Philosophy is to identify, the cause of a patient's symptoms through assessment of Biomechanical and contributing factors, rather than just treating symptoms. This approach has enabled me to provide long term solutions to client conditions, not just a quick fix.
I use a variety of treatment modalities inluding but not limited to, Manual Therapy (hands on) and Exercise prescription.
Over the past 27 years I have also gained experience in many varied Chronic and Acute conditions with a vast knowledge base of assessment and treatment skills.
- I am able to apply upper limb and lower limb plasters.
- I am a current member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) and practise according to the APA code of Practice and Ethics.
- Member Sports Physiotherapy Association (SPA)
- I am a Work Cover approved provider, Department of Veteran Affairs and Medicare approved.
On a personal level I am a keen follower of most sports and have played Cricket and Lawn bowls at competitive level. I have an interest in throwing injuries and back injuries in cricketers and completed a thesis on "Back injuries in Fast Bowlers" on graduation.
I have also played Soccer, Tennis, Hockey, Australian Rules Football, Golf and various other sports at a recreational level.
