Rehabilitation Physiotherapist
Queen St

Education

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.

Experience

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.

Personal

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.

Self Care & Work Life Balance

As restrictions start to ease, life is starting to resemble a more familiar and normal way of life. We have all adapted over the last few months and learnt to go about our daily life in a different way, working from home, finding different ways to exercise, spending leisure time in parks rather than bars and restaurants.

Putting out of Isolation

After 7 long weeks in isolation, sports mad Victorians are celebrating the announcement this week that a number of recreational sports and activities are back on the permitted list and we will soon be able to watch NRL, AFL and a modified Super Rugby competition. Professional athletes are now allowed to get back to their training with plans for competitions to restart over the next few months. The time away from their sport and training could have a significant impact on performance as well as injury risk, so the next six weeks of training will be crucial. For the rest of us who have been juggling working from home at a less than ideal workstation, home schooling, queuing for essential supplies and managing life in isolation, it is even more important to take a gradual approach to returning to sport and activity.

Exercising during physical isolation Part 2

Hopefully everyone is settling into the new normal way of life and you have developed a routine for work, shopping for essentials, virtual socialising and exercise.  I have had a lot of messages from people who have tried the single leg sit to stand exercise from the video we posted with the blog last week and also enquiring about my toilet paper source.  How is your exercise challenge going? How many single leg sit to stand repetitions can you do with correct technique?
