PHYSIOTHERAPIST ( WOMEN’S HEALTH FOCUS)
Having graduated from LaTrobe University in Melbourne 8 years ago, with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy, Monica’s passion for optimising the wellbeing of others has grown exponentially. As detailed below, her special interests include, but are not limited to, Women’s Health, clinical pilates and the management and treatment of persistentpain.
Women’s Health has become an important part of Monica’s career. She has completed multiple courses to further her knowledge and is able to treat pre and postnatal women with musculoskeletal issues or pelvic floor related issues, women with prolapse, urinary urgency, urinary or bowel incontinence and pain. Monica deals with these cases with sensitivity and care. Having had two children of her own, she is respectful and can empathise with her patients surrounding such issues.
Her journey led her to work in private practice. Monica has completed musculoskeletal courses to further develop her skills including, but not limited to, clinical pilates and dry needling. From there her path led to enhancing her knowledge on persistent pain, and ways to educate and treat chronic pain in a wide range of patients. Monica feels it is paramount to empower the patients she works with and discover what an individual can do. She feels the science of the brain is a valuable and infinite tool with the ability of creating new pathways with newly learned skills to enhance people’s quality of life, inspite of the issues they may face along the way.
Having moved to Hunters Hill, Monica is enjoying getting to know the local community through her time spent with her daughters. She enjoys yoga and high intensity exercise, gardening as well as spending quality time exploring with her young family.
