APA Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist

APA Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists use advanced clinical assessment and treatment for spinal & complex injuries.  They have also been trained in a broader range of treatment techniques than many other health professionals.  This title serves as a professional mark of distinction for physiotherapists practicing manipulative physiotherapy, which relates to spinal manipulation and alignment.
Karen combines this extended training with over 25 years of experience to help you achieve your maximum physical potential for all spinal, muscular and joints problems.
Karen has worked with many local community and sporting groups including Lara Football, GFL and GDFL interleague sides, Lara Swimming Club and Sports Medicine Australia.
Karen believes that many of us allow back pain, headaches and joint problems to slow us down.  Come in today and get the right assessment and advice to get back on track fast.
