Lucy completed an undergraduate qualification at the University of Notre Dame Fremantle in 2007, working in a hospital setting for two years before moving into private practice. Lucy has completed further study in the area of Continence and Women’s Health Physiotherapy, providing assessment and treatment for problems such as incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic pain, ante and post-natal issues, as well as pre and post prostatectomy management for men.
Lucy has a keen interest in Clinical Pilates, using it as a low impact form of exercise, focused on managing postural problems and improving spinal stability through muscular support. Pilates can be used to treat a wide range of conditions including neck and low back pain, and rehabilitation of neuro-musculoskeletal injuries such as ankle sprains and knee pain. Pilates is also a beneficial form of exercise during and post pregnancy due to its low impact nature and individual tailored exercise prescription.
Lucy has also undergone training in Trigger Point Dry Needling (Acupuncture), and is able to offer this as an option for treatment of muscle related tightness or pain, or to promote tendon healing.
