I was born into an athletics/health family so I have always been interested in training and rehabilitation.
I took up athletics at a young age where I won several youth titles before switching to soccer where I played in the NZ national league and
went on several international tours, including trips to Argintina/Chile. Recently I have been focusing more on weight training, when I am able to squeeze it into
my busy lifestyle of treating patients and running a business.
I have a keen interest in rehabilitating injuries, whether sporting; a sprained ankle, a dislocated shoulder or a muscular imbalance created by years of lifting weights,
or work related; shoulder pain from overhead lifting or back tightness from sitting too long at a desk.
I prefer using hands on techinques so I can accurately identify the issues and treat in a way which generates the best results.
When appropriate I like to use my training experience from running and weights to facilitate your recovery.
As well as working with athletes I have also worked with a major Australian airline preforming injury screens/ manual handling and rehabilitating their staff.
Workplace injuries while different from sporting injuries often share some common similarites.
I find when issues are addressed correcty they can often be maintained through specific exercises and simple adaptions to everyday life.
Areas of interest:
Repetitive strain injuries
Running, football, weight training injuries
