Heather has a particular interest in chronic pain management which has arisen from her experience whilst working in a number of different areas of physiotherapy over many years.
Heather graduated from Curtin University in 1980 and worked in the Kimberley region in W.A for several years, and also in the U.K before returning to work at Royal Perth Hospital, specialising in the physiotherapy management of neurological conditions.
In 1988 Heather moved to the Southwest and began her work in private practice. A background in neurology physiotherapy gave Heather a different slant in the treatment of musculoskeletal problems, and an interest in the different techniques available to help treat musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction, particularly deep tissue massage, dry needling and correcting body mechanics and movement patterns.
She is a very keen gardener and always very sympathetic to gardening injuries!
Heather also likes taking her kayak out on the Collie River or estuary, and she and her husband Rob can frequently be seen walking the tracks along the river, with their retired greyhounds, or rats on stilts, as she recently heard them described!
You will find Heather at our Koombana Physiotherapy practice in Bunbury.
