I am a fully qualified, NZ registered physiotherapist with a high level of expertise and a passion for enabling people to reach their full potential following trauma or elective surgery.
Specialising in the field of Orthopaedics, the last 15 years of my career has been spent working with medical teams in the UK and New Zealand. I have worked in many areas of patient care from the emergency departments and pre-surgery preparation to post-surgery care in the hospital setting and hospital at home teams in the community.
Having worked in both the Public and Private Health Sectors and in partnership with ACC I have a broad knowledge of the services available to you during your recovery and can make referrals to these as needed.
No medical review is required before making an appointment and I am able to submit ACC claims and refer for X-rays and medical reviews as needed
OA SMART COURSE
With an interest in joint replacement surgery also comes an interest in the condition that most commonly can lead to it - Arthritis.
Before surgery is considered health organisations recommend trying conservative methods of treatment for 3 months to see if these can negate the need for surgery.
Working alongside my colleague Aviv Jones, we created a course to align with these health recommendations and current research. It runs 3 times a year to good effect and positive feedback from clients and was a finalist at the NZ Fitex Awards in 2017
