Anouska knew she wanted to be a physiotherapist since her early teenage years. After being heavily involved in sport during these influential years Anouska had her fair share of injuries. During this time she became fascinated with how the body works and how a good Physiotherapist can be pivotal to recovery. Since graduating in 2010 Anouska has continued to strive to be the best physiotherapist possible.

Anouska’s strength is her ability to listen and problem solve to give her clients a successful outcome. She feels the most important aspect of rehabilitation is good communication between client and physiotherapist: it is a relationship where both parties have to complete their assigned tasks well to move forward.

Treatment is individual, but may include a combination of the following; joint mobilisation, Massage, trigger point release, dry needling, stretching, taping, muscular strength assessment and prescription of a home exercise program to promote self management.

Her favourite conditions to treat include post-surgical recovery, chronic pain, and sports-related injuries, such as:

* Nerve Pain
* Lower Limb Tendinopathy
* Chronic pain related to myofascial dysfunction
* Pelvic Pain
* Women’s Health issues, including post-partum care and Diastasis Recti
