Having graduated from LaTrobe University in Melbourne 9 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 persistent pain. Women’s Health has become an important part of Monica’s career. She has completed extensive professional development in this field to further her knowledge and is able to treat pre and postnatal women with musculoskeletal issues or pelvic floor related issues, women with pelvic organ prolapse, urinary urgency, urinary or bowel incontinence and pelvic 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.
In addition Monica has enhanced her knowledge on persistent pain and ways to educate and treat this in a wide range of patients. She feels it is paramount to empower the patients she works with and discover what an individual can do. The science of the brain is a valuable and infinite tool with the ability of creating new pathways, new belief systems and 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.
