Sarah completed her studies at Griffith University, graduating with a Bachelor of Exercise Science and a Masters of Physiotherapy in 2016 with academic excellence achieved consistently throughout the 5 years. She joined the Spine + Body team after graduation to pursue a career in musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapy.
Sarah’s primary area of interest is in the treatment and management of young dancers, whose bodies are subjected to the extremes of flexibility, strength, fitness and endurance. Having lived the same dance experiences herself over 16 years of training and 7 years of teaching to date, she wishes to help young students understand their strengths and weaknesses and care for their bodies to prevent injury whilst striving for their goals as athletic and skilled dancers. She is available to conduct pre-pointe assessments, dance screening for technique improvement and for management of dance-related pain and injury.
Outside of her dance interests, Sarah has also achieved multiple World and Australian gold medals as a Surf Life Saving competitor in IRB Racing, and has been selected on the state representative team for 3 consecutive years. Whilst competing, she also acted as a team sports trainer managing acute injuries and strapping for fellow competitors.
Sarah demonstrates excellent manual therapy skills and a thorough understanding of sports physiotherapy, is qualified in mat and reformer Clinical Pilates and holds her Dry Needling qualifications. By combining these skills with tailored exercise prescription and programs, she is able to treat patients from all walks of life with a variety of conditions including back pain, neck pain, post-operative and conservative management of shoulder injuries, and treatment of lower limb conditions.
