Kirsty grew up in the Gawler area and has been working in private practice for more years than she cares to acknowledge. She started Physio-Wise over 20 years ago, and has a strong emphasis for hands on Physiotherapy treatment. She likes to use home exercises as an adjunct to treatment – ”the treatment between the treatments” and has also been trained in dry needling techniques. Kirsty lives at Lyndoch with a menagerie of horses, dogs and cats. She has two daughters, her oldest daughter is also a physiotherapist and her youngest daughter is studying Psychology.
Brooke grew up in Lyndoch and completed her schooling at Trinity College here in Gawler. She went on to study a Bachelor of Physiotherapy at the UniSA, during which she first joined us at Physio-Wise working on reception. Since completing her degree in 2013, Brooke has consulted at both our Lyndoch and Gawler clinics. Brooke has a special interest in the area of Women’s Health, including continence issues and pelvic floor dysfunction through all stages of life, but is especially passionate about helping women through pregnancy and the post-partum recovery process. Brooke also has a passion for incorporating Pilates-informed exercises into her treatments and into the group exercise sessions she runs throughout the week. Brooke has a strong emphasis on hands-on treatment, used in conjunction with active rehabilitation strategies to help you achieve your health and fitness goals. Now a Gawler local, you might occasionally see Brooke out running with her two Beagles. She also enjoys spending time with family, relaxing at the river and travelling.
Liam has been part of the Physio-wise team since 2013. A familiar face to many, he is local to the region. Following the completion of his degree, Liam has developed a number of professional interests, including many musculoskeletal and sports related injuries, with a particular interest in the lower limb. He loves outdoor activities such as fishing, spearfishing, camping and four-wheel driving and will never turn down an opportunity to have a friendly chat about his fishing accomplishments. Liam enjoys the interpersonal level of his job and will always make it his goal to achieve the goals of his patients.
Jodi began working at Physio-Wise in 2017 while in her second year of a Physiotherapy degree at UniSA. Jodi became interested in Physiotherapy after watching the Physiotherapists work on a family member at the Repatriation hospital and thought "I would love to help people like that one day". Jodi loves working with the Physiotherapists at Physio-Wise and enjoys talking to the patients at reception. She looks forward to meeting more of you in the future!
