Emily graduated from La Trobe University in 2009 with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy and has worked in private practices across Melbourne since then, gaining experience in treating a variety of musculoskeletal injuries.
Emily previously worked as head Physiotherapist for the Heidelberg Football Club for four years, and continues to have a special interest in rehabilitating sporting injuries and getting motivated people back to sport and high level function as quickly and as safely as possible. Emily has completed the sports level 1 and 2 courses to gain further knowledge in this field.
Most recently, Emily has worked onsite for Virgin Australia, providing physiotherapy services to their staff and managing work related injuries. This has given her great exposure to the stresses related to repetitive, manual handling jobs, and has allowed Emily to develop skills in treating injuries that can develop in these situations.
With several years of experience teaching Clinical Pilates, Emily likes to incorporate functional, core strengthening and postural retraining into client’s rehabilitation. She also utilises dry needling and other manual techniques to relieve pain and tension with the overall ultimate goal of injury rehabilitation and long term prevention of recurrence.
Emily has recently relocated to the Surf Coast after spending a year abroad in South and Central America. She loves the ocean, is an ex-boatie, and is currently a developing surfer. She also enjoys social netball and tennis and is a long-suffering Collingwood supporter.
