Being involved in competitive swimming form a young age, has set Sara with a solid foundation for life; which involves wellness, fitness and health. Sara has always had a strong interest in movement and training, competing at high levels in swimming, iron women and triathlon. This passion carries over to her work as a Physiotherapist. Being injured, and having to manage these injuries has taught Sara the importance of not only fixing the source of the problem but figuring out the cause to enhance performance and avoid re-occurrence, through corrective rehabilitation and sport specific strategies.

PROFESSIONAL PROFILE

Sara completed her Physiotherapy degree at the Australian Catholic University. She has been working as a Physiotherapist as well as a strength and conditioning coach and in private practice focusing on human biomechanics and rehabilitation. Sara has previously been in a busy sports / musculoskeletal private practice and strength and conditioning center in the eastern suburbs for the past 2 years, treating patients of all ages for conditions such as post-surgery rehabilitation, repetitive strain injuries to acute lower back injuries, and returning to sport specific training. Alongside this she has worked with Women’s Rugby union first grade teams. Sara is SFMA qualified, and uses this understanding to help treat patients, specifically for sport specific injury prevention. She has also undertaken her Dry Needling Level 1 qualification and Functional neurology course. Sara has learned through these experiences to feel the body, how it can move and perform when it is provided with the right stimulus, which has giving her the ability to treat injuries but also ensure that problems are solved through physiotherapy assessment, movement and strength and conditioning with strategies in place that work to maintain a healthy life. “To move, look, perform and feel better.”
