BAppSc (Physio), Masters Sports Physio, PhD

Senior Physiotherapist

LeandaHi, I’m Leanda, and I am passionate about Sports Physiotherapy and Women’s Health and have over 25 years’ experience in the industry.

Having worked in public hospitals and private practice in WA, the NT and the UK, I have extensive understanding of a broad range of conditions.  I have completed a Masters in Sports physiotherapy and hold a PhD where I specialised in shoulder pain.  As well as treating at Central City Health Professionals, I continue to research shoulder pain, mastitis and upper back pain in women.

As a lecturer in Physiotherapy at Curtin University I also teach undergraduate students and supervise Physiotherapists who are conducting Masters and PhD research. I contribute to the development of the physiotherapy profession through the publication of multiple research papers, presentations at Sports Medicine Australia, World Confederation for Physical Therapy, and the Australian Physiotherapy Association National and State conferences.

Finally, when not treating, teaching and researching in physiotherapy, I am a mother of three, a keen runner and cyclist, and have completed three team swims to Rottnest.
