Katie’s Approach to Exercise Physiology

Katie has a keen interest in the rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries, in particular hip, knee and back pain. She particularly enjoys finding the source of clients pain through assessing things like movement patterns, strength deficits, mobility and training histories and taking an evidence based approach to improving these issues through exercise prescription.

Other areas she is particularly interested in include exercise to improve outcomes for clients with neurological conditions, mental health disorders, intellectual and physical disabilities and seniors.

“I believe exercise is for everyone, and there is no person who does not benefit from a well structured exercise program.”

Katie comes from a strong sporting background, participating in high level Athletics, Touch Football and Rugby 7s. She usually spends her weeknights and weekends training and playing Rugby, and has been lucky enough to play at State, National and an International level. If she’s am not playing sport, Katie loves to keep active outside either running, surfing, snowboarding or adventuring!

Katie’s goal is to help as many people as she can, in more than just their physical health. She believe in a holistic approach to health, and enjoys working to improve clients mental, physical and psycho-social wellbeing.
