Clinical interest: Teenage athletes, Lower limb injuries, wrist and hand injuries
Susi graduated from physiotherapy at Curtin University in 1996. She completed a Masters in Sports Physiotherapy at the University of Queensland in 2001. Susi is an APA titled Sports Physiotherapist. Susi has worked in a variety of private, elite and amateur sports, university lecturing and tutoring and public settings interstate and overseas. She has worked mostly with the running sports (rugby, hockey and AFL), but now enjoys the challenge of helping clients of all ages get back to a variety of activities ranging from swimming and running type sports to more regular normal daily activities.
Susi has a particular interest in the treatment and management of lower limb, lumbopelvic and school age athlete conditions. She works part time at both Karrinyup Physiotherapy Centre and in an Advanced Scope Physiotherapist role in a busy Emergency Department where she independently manages fractures and other musculoskeletal injuries. These two roles combine well to support the idea that injuries managed well, will minimise ongoing or subsequent issues.
Susi uses a variety of hands on manual therapy, exercise treatment and does dry needling and rehabilitation exercise classes. She also makes basic thermoplastic splints for use on finger/hands for sports/overuse injuries.
In her own time Susi enjoys the great outdoors.
