Director | Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist
Amy has been with Indooroopilly Allsports since graduating in 2006 with first class honours through her research in the use of real-time ultrasound in patients with low back pain. This has helped foster an interest in the use of the ultrasound machine for the rehabilitation of low back and hip muscles. In 2011 she completed her Masters of Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy being awarded with achieving the greatest proficiency in this program at UQ; as well as the Masters of Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Prize from MPA, a specialty group of the Australian Physiotherapy Association. In 2016 Amy was accepted into the Australian College of Physiotherapists as a candidate for specialisation to embark on a two year training program to attain the highest level of expertise in the field of Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy.
Amy continues to develop skills in high levels of clinical reasoning and problem solving; assessment and application of advanced preventative and management programs. Amy is interested in all areas of physiotherapy but specifically spinal, pelvic dysfunctions and headaches; believing in prevention as well as management of musculoskeletal disorders both acute and chronic conditions. Amy has worked with many office workers aiming to manage their persistent pain in a working environment. She is also a keen ballroom and latin dancer which has led to a special interest in dancing and training load injuries associated to all types of dance.
Amy participates heavily in the area of teaching and professional development including supervision of post-graduate students studying their Masters specialty qualifications. She is actively involved with the continued education of all new graduate physiotherapists at Allsports Physiotherapy, providing in house professional development to various Allsports clinics as well as a clinical educator for undergraduate students.
In addition to working at Indooroopilly Allsports, Amy has been invited to work as an advanced physiotherapist in the public sector as a Clinical Leader in the Spinal Screening Clinic at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital. She works closely with a multidisciplinary team as well as neurosurgeons and spinal orthopaedic surgeons for the management of complex spinal conditions.
