Wendy graduated from Monash University with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy with Honours. She has over four years experience working with sporting teams and is currently a physiotherapist for University Blues Football Club (VAFA A grade). To further complement her skills, she has completed studies in APPI clinical pilates and Level 1 Sports.
Wendy enjoys utilising an active rehabilitative approach with elements of clinical pilates, strength & conditioning and manual therapy including dry needling. She believes in the robustness and resiliency of the human body and as such is a strong advocator for movement re-education and living an active lifestyle (being a keen runner and gym-goer herself). As someone whom has had her fair share of injuries, she understands the nuances and challenges of rehabilitation and therefore clients can expect sessions with Wendy to be holistic, systematic and personalized.
Wendy’s clinical interests encompass all musculoskeletal and sporting conditions particularly: running related and overuse injuries, hip and groin and shoulder pathologies. She also enjoys injury prevention and performance enhancement in athletes of all levels.
