Senior Physiotherapist / Owner
Kirsty graduated from Curtin University with a Bachelor of Science (Physiotherapy) in Perth, Western Australia in 2009. She has over 15 years of experience working in a variety of settings. Initially she started out in the acute hospital setting looking after post-operative rehabilitation patients and conducting Hydrotherapy Classes. She then moved into private practice where she has treated a wide variety of patients including private patients and insurance (workers compensation and motor vehicle).
Kirsty has undertaken specialised Clinical Pilates training with DMA Clinical Pilates to provide supervised rehabilitation specific to your injury or needs. This is a great way to help you recover fully from your injury and training your body to become stronger with day to day tasks that are required from you.
Kirsty has undertaken many Professional Development courses over the years as she believes it is so important to be up to date with the latest evidence to ensure you get the most out of your sessions. She is qualified in Dry Needling (sometimes referred to as Acupuncture). She has also been educated in Vestibular rehabiliation for those people who suffer with BPPV or dizziness related to the ear.
Kirsty has a keen interest in Women's Health (and is currently undertaking more study in this area). She is particularly interested in Pelvic Girdle Pain in Pregnancy and rehabilitation post Mastectomy - both are topics close to her heart, as she has experienced both! She also has an intellectually disabled sister, so is very empathetic to those in the NDIS system.
When she is not at work, she is busy with her husband and running around after her 3 young children.
