A lifelong love of sport and fitness lead Emily to begin her career in the health and fitness industry in 2005 whilst studying a Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science and Diploma of Secondary Education. After 6 years of teaching Secondary Health and Physical Education, Emily decided to fulfil a lifelong goal of pursuing a career in Physiotherapy, graduating with a Masters of Physiotherapy from Flinders University. Emily’s experience in both the fitness industry and across a multitude of sports in both athletic and coaching roles, as well as her first-hand experience of sporting injuries has helped to cultivate a passion for helping others overcome their own pain and limitations in order to achieve their goals. She believes whole-heartedly in utilising a multi-dimensional, patient-centred approach; and in the lifelong benefits of exercise – as both a lifestyle choice, a rehabilitation and/or pre-habilitation tool to ensure the best outcomes for her patients. Emily has had experience with and has developed a keen interest in the following clinical areas:
