Qualifications: Chartered physiotherapist (CSP, HCPC registered), Polestar Pilates rehabilitation programme
Hi, my name is Kelly and I am originally from New Zealand! Because of this, I led a really active lifestyle, enjoying many outdoor and sporting activities. I have represented NZ in sport aerobics, competed nationally with netball and surf lifesaving, and performed in cheerleading and aerial acrobatics displays. However, along the way, I obtained several injuries and as a result, was introduced to physiotherapy and Pilates from a young age. Through these experiences, I became fascinated with the human body, and knew then, that a career in health science was for me.
I went on to study at the University of Otago, graduating in 2015 with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy. I have since been working as a musculoskeletal physiotherapist in the private practice sectors in Wellington, New Zealand, and London, England.
I have experience working with clients of all population groups but have a particular interest in women’s health, pre and postnatal care, low back and neck pain, hip, knee and ankle injuries, and post-operative rehabilitation.
I love taking a holistic, whole body approach to treatment, always seeking to address the root cause of the condition. I am an advocate of active rehabilitation and enjoy using clinical Pilates to address movement patterns and posture, helping my clients to overcome pain and dysfunction, and achieve their goals.
I am always looking to expand my knowledge and provide up to date evidence-based treatments. Since graduating, I have furthered my education in persistent pain and mechanical diagnosis therapy, becoming a credentialled Mckenzie therapist in 2018. More recently, I have pursued an interest in the areas of women’s and pelvic health and am currently undertaking training to develop my knowledge in these areas including ultrasound scanning and internal pelvic assessments.
When I am not in the studio or working with Complete Physio, you will find me trying lots of different restaurants, looking after one of my many house plants and planning my next adventure.
