I focus on simple strategies that help you help yourself

I am an experienced Physiotherapist specialising in the treatment of back and neck related pain, but equally happy treating other musculoskeletal conditions. I obtained a First Class Honours degree in Physiotherapy from Cardiff University (UK) in 2005, and also hold a degree in Exercise and Sport Sciences.

After training in the Sarah Key Method of treating problem backs in 2009 and joining the team at the Sarah Key Physiotherapy Centre in 2017, I am now very passionate and experienced in treating those with back and neck related problems.

Following the closure of Sarah’s Sydney clinic, I was keen to continue providing specialist care for patients, so started The Back Physio. I am currently practising part time out of The Physicaltherapy Centre.

I believe that the effective management of pain is achieved through education, focused manual therapy, and simple exercises and strategies that help you to help yourself.

I also feel strongly that chronic pains can be improved and most back problems can be managed without surgery.  To do this, I have committed myself to improving myself as a practitioner by incorporating other skill sets.

As well as using the Sarah Key Method of treatment, I hold a Diploma in Sports Massage and am a trained practitioner of Integrated Dry Needling (Acupuncture).  Physio Key is another modality I use extensively and have incorporated into many of my treatments.
