Liz grew up in New Zealand playing a lot of sport and experiencing a few injuries along the way. These experiences motivated her to complete a Bachelor of Physiotherapy in 2002 and help other people overcome their injuries.
Liz’s passion for travel then led her to London where she spent 10 years working in and managing private physio clinics. She developed her skills in Pilates and managing running related injuries. Liz also attended many courses by international leaders in Physiotherapy research and completed a post graduate paper in Strength and Conditioning. Liz had the opportunity to work with sporting teenagers, professional athletes, busy City workers and weekend warriors, getting them back on court, back on their bike and back leading their field.
Being a keen runner and new mum, Liz has a special interest in treating runners and working with postpartum women to help them recover from injury and achieve their health and exercise goals. In 2018, Liz completed her level 2 recreational run coaching qualification through Athletics Victoria, to further develop her skills and knowledge when working with runners. Liz believes that biomechanics and correct movement patterns are key for optimal musculoskeletal health. She uses her experience as a rehabilitation expert to analyse movement patterns, understand the underlying cause, provide education on recovery and prevention and ensure patient’s have the correct rehabilitation and exercise plan. The team approach delivered at Pure Physio ensures people achieve and exceed their goals following injury.
Over the past year Liz has enjoyed the challenge of being a new mum. Liz has been on her own postpartum journey to return to exercise and running. Her running goals for 2020 are to get back to running under 50 minutes for 10km and to complete a half marathon.
