DIRECTOR OF SYDNEY PHYSIO GROUP
Special interest: Group exercise, sports injuries and dry needling.
Sarah has an extensive background in sport and exercise, and has combined this passion with her ‘hands on’ physio skills since graduating from Sydney University. Having played competitive netball and waterpolo, she has a great appreciation of the role of exercise based therapy in both the treatment and prevention of injury. Sarah has spent a number of years teaching group fitness classes in gyms around Sydney, from which she has developed a keen interest in Pilates-style core stability training. She incorporates this in the treatment of back and neck pain, and sport-specific rehabilitation. Sarah has also had extensive training in various dry needling methods such as trigger point needling, which can often be useful in the treatment of many musculoskeletal injuries.
Prior to establishing Waverton and Greenwich Physio, Sarah had a number of years experience in sports coverage, in particular as physiotherapist for the NSW Paralympic Football Team.
She takes a pragmatic approach to treatment, understanding the demands of our modern lifestyle on our bodies – whether it be home, work or sport related, she is keen to work with you to keep you as active as possible throughout the injury process.
