Bachelor of Physiotherapy
Kath has been practicing physio for over 25 years and is experienced in a wide range of treatment specialties. Early in her career she worked at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in London and this started her on a path of working with sports and orthopaedics. She has been a provider for the New Zealand Academy of Sport and worked with many elite sports people.
Kath has 3 post graduate qualifications which have allowed her to focus on such areas as acupuncture and vocational rehabilitation (helping people back to work following injury or illness).
In more recent years she has focused on working with people with cancer through being a PINC and STEEL Cancer Rehabilitation physiotherapist. As part of this she takes group session for women with cancer - Next Steps which is a step class incorporating Pilates, Yoga and relaxation; and PaddleOn in which women with cancer learn how to stand up paddle board. Kath is a qualified Lymphodema Therapist and is looking to expand this area of practice.
