South City Physio Team

Meet The South City Physio Team

South City Physio has been helping people by providing exceptional care to achieve great outcomes for 23 years. Our clients come from all walks of life, all ages and from all over Brisbane, Australia and even internationally. We work with you to thoroughly address your pain /problem and present a diagnosis and a plan for your best recovery and most importantly help you return to what important to you. We also believe better care includes teaching good physical health habits in the hope we don’t have to manage problems/injuries later.

We understand you and your body and health concerns are completely unique. We will take time to listen and understand your problem, apply our extensive and evidence based knowledge to help you get the results you are looking for.

We also strive to offer affordable health care here at South City Physio and believe you will get great value for money.

We also look at the bigger picture, and for us to achieve our vision of better care for our clients we believe passionately in mentoring the next generation of physiotherapists. We work to instill a love of learning and utilising the current science into their care. We have an expectation of excellence in physiotherapy care and we help them develop excellent manual skills.

Having worked in the physiotherapy industry for more than four decades it affords me a long term perspective on the profession. I am more convinced now than ever of its pivotal role in supporting the best health for those with physical dysfunction and injury. It is the powerful positive results that our patients achieve utilising physiotherapy that keep me engaged both clinically and academically.

I feel very fortunate in that I love what I do. As a musculoskeletal physiotherapist I see my role is to understand why an individual is experiencing pain. More than that the joy is in teaching and developing strategies to change this. While I am more than happy to help with any presenting musculoskeletal conditions, of late I have a special interest in knee and shoulder pain.

Helping people resolve their pain has always been something that I have been passionate about. I believe physiotherapy has the power to help a really broad range of people recover from injury and achieve their goals in life.

I like to work collaboratively with my patients to find the best treatment plan for them. Combining this teamwork with the most up to date exercises and manual techniques, helps my patients become healthier and stronger than when they walked through the door! I enjoy treating conditions from muscle and joint dysfunction to general Men’s health.

After 6 years either studying or working in the field, I have found my calling and that is to help people resolve their pain and injuries. I want patients to receive the benefits of physiotherapy, not only during the session but continually throughout their life. Working with the team at South City has helped me as a practitioner and along with my background in exercise science, I can work with my patients throughout their rehab journey to deliver up to date care to help them reach their goals.
