Lymphoedema Prevention, Monitoring and Treatment
Movement Restoration and Pain Relief
I work with each client to form an personalised programme to maximise recovery, improve physical fitness and quality of life, and reduce pain. In addition to my qualifications in lymphoedema, lipoedema and oncology, I have a Diploma in Orthopaedic Medicine ensuring accurate diagnosis of your pain and movement issues.
In addition to my physiotherapy skills and experience, I also hold a Counselling certificate. This enables me to incorporate counselling skills and motivational techniques where appropriate.
I use state of the art equipment (perometry, bioimpedance and lymphscanner) within your assessment provided at the Victorian Lymphoedema Practice. This is the same equipment used at Mercy Health and Monash Health so your measurements are transferrable to the public hospital lymphoedema clinics if required.
Many hospitals are unable to provide best practice physiotherapy services for cancer patients. If no pre operative limb measurements are taken early diagnosis of lymphoedema after surgery or radiotherapy is not always achievable.
I offer guaranteed gap free limb measurements pre and post operatively / post radiotherapy to ensure more patients can gain best practice within their care.
