Lisa Friend

Rehabilitation Physiotherapist
Collins St

Lisa graduated from The University of Melbourne with a Bachelor of Science and a Doctor of Physiotherapy.  She has since developed a passion for treating lower limb and spinal injuries and returning people to sport and exercise. Lisa has a particular interest in whole body biomechanics and how this relates to injury management.

Lisa has an extensive background in competitive cycling. Incorporating this knowledge into cycling injury assessment and management as well as bike fitting has become a core part of her clinical practice. 

Lisa has worked in sports and spinal clinics across Melbourne under specialist sports and spinal physiotherapists. She has completed further training including bike fitting, Clinical Pilates, tendon injury management and dry needling. She is also a qualified Yoga instructor and enjoys incorporating this knowledge into her clinical practice.

Away from work Lisa enjoys being a new mum, gardening and keeping fit by running, cycling or taking a Pilates/Yoga class.
