Physio Inq Licensee & Senior Physiotherapist

After qualifying as a physio from NZ in 2005, Cathy decided to seek fairer weather and moved to Brisbane to start her career.

In 2015 Cathy relocated to Perth, and after deciding to stay, she has taken ownership of Manning Physio in June 2018. She is excited about becoming part of the local community of Manning and bringing her unique style of physiotherapy to the area.

Cathy has post-graduate qualifications in Western Acupuncture and Dry Needling and is currently working her way through a Masters by Research degree at The University of Notre Dame in Fremantle. She treats all types of injuries and loves working with her patients to help them return from acutely injured/in pain, back to sport, work or their favourite leisure activities. She has had many years’ experience running both mat and studio Pilates classes and believes that exercise should benefit both physical and mental health.

Cathy’s areas of interest include Sacro-Iliac Joint (SIJ)/pelvic girdle pain, hip pain (including bursitis), back and neck pain, headaches, shoulder injuries, Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) dysfunction and plantar fasciitis. Cathy also works with people with auto-immune arthritic conditions to help with pain management and advice on exercising with chronic conditions.

Cathy’s favourite leisure activities include walking her dog (a standard poodle named Brian), gardening and anything creative (renovations, painting, sewing, cooking….). She has also represented New Zealand, Queensland and now WA in the sport of long-distance rifle shooting.
