Kate Senini

Senior Manual Physiotherapist
Queen St

Education
Ba Physiotherapy, LaTrobe University, 2002.
Further study has included courses focussed on shoulder, elbow and hip injuries and the science behind pain as well as dry needling. Kate was also involved in research into the ‘deep neck stability’ of rugby players and research into ‘rotator cuff deficient shoulders’ during her time working in London.

Experience
Kate made London home for 7 years, during which time she managed a private physiotherapy clinic in Harley Street, London, with fourteen fantastic physios.

While working in London Kate was exposed to a number of sport and posture specific presentations which opened her eyes to the bigger world of Physiotherapy.  Kate developed a deep passion for running and cycling injuries with a keen interest in the underlying biomechanics of these injuries.  Kate proceeded to further up-skill in these areas via study, adding another string to the bow alongside her research into neck and shoulder injuries.

Kate returned home in 2010 and was a founding partner (alongside Andrew) of Pure Physio. Over the past 10 years Kate has continued to up-skill her clinical and communication skills while working hard to build Pure Physio.  As one of Pure Physios most senior clinicians, Kate also commits time to mentor and develop colleagues at Pure.

Kate loves getting out into the community meeting running, personal training and cycling groups to provide education around injury prevention.

In 2020 Kate‘s passion for clinical work and patient centred care led her to resign her director role at Pure Physio to focus exclusively on her clinical role at Pure.  Kate‘s goals are to see every patient and their presentation treated individually.  She believes that listening, and working in partnership with her patients are key ingredients to successful outcomes.

Personal
Kate
still loves cycling, running, hiking and tennis in her spare time.  Kate continues to be curious about the world…and thinks she may never lose her love of traveling!

Murray to Mountains Rail Trail

Rail trails are a brilliant conversion of the old regional railway lines, into places that anyone can spend an hour, a day or a week exploring. They cater from kids to older people, and can be enjoyed walking, taking the dog, going for a run, or a cycling trip. Without traffic to contend with, and with many pretty regional villages dotted along their routes, it provides something special for the mind and body. This weeks trail takes us from Beechworth to Bright!

RAIL TRAIL REJUVENATION

It's 2021, the year is underway, and we are all hoping that life can return to some semblance of “normal”. It was an interesting year in 2020 as many of us realised how important the outdoors actually is to our general health. Lockdown showed us that having a break in the great outdoors can rejuvenate our physical bodies and aid us having good mental health.

BLOG – WHY DOES MY HIP KEEP HURTING?

Presentations of one sided hip pain are incredibly common in the predominantly city based adult population at Pure Physio.  This presenting patient group often have several things in common - they are desk based corporate workers who spend many hours sitting both in the office and during their commutes.  They are active people who enjoy running and cycling.  They have often sought treatment or suffered intermittent ongoing pain for many years, that responds well to treatment for a short term but ultimately returns with increased exercise.
