Women's Health and Musculoskeletal Physio. I work in Cammeray.

My Story

I started my physiotherapy career woking in a public hospital in Mumbai. I moved with my family to Vancouver, Canada where I pursued a Master of Science in Rehabilitation Research. I loved Canada and the Canadians but the bleak long winters left me yearning for warmer temperatures and after a holiday in Sydney I fell in love with the city and the rest is history.

I dabbled in a new career as a medical writer whist undergoing the accreditation pathway for overseas trained physiotherapist. I then returned to hospital physiotherapy at The Mater Hospital Sydney, starting in Cardiorespiratory and gradually working in all areas of the hospital. Maternity Physiotherapy and Womens Health was especially rewarding for me on a personal level as I could relate to the challenges of my own pregnancy and recovery after the birth of my son in 2010. Despite being fit and active prior to beging pregnant I found it surprisingly challenging to recover my strength and fitness and I didnt just 'bounce back' as I expected I would. I loved that I could use my physiotherapy knowledge and skills to help women through this transformative and physically and emotionally demanding phase of their lives.

I signed up for a course in women’s health physiotherapy and by the end of that intense period of study, I knew that I had found my calling and thus began career in Womens Health.

Working at The Physiotherapy Clinic has been a highlight in my career. The people are exceptional, There is a strong culture of sharing knowledge, building and perfecting clinical skills and fostering an environement of excellence whilst being supportive and nurturing. The end result is high level evidence-based physiotherapy services is all area of physiotherpay and particularly in womens health.

What makes me different:

I am passionate about women’s health and committed to giving all my patients the best possible care. In my years of working in hospitals with patients of all ages, backgrounds and with range of conditions I know that all parts of the human body are connected, each body is unique, and that the changes our bodies experience over our lifetime need to be treated individually and holistically. I am passionate about yoga and integrate this holistic practice with my physiotheray practice to give my patients the best possible sustainable outcomes.
