Louise completed her Bachelor of Physiotherapy in 2014 at the University of Notre Dame and has since treated primarily in musculoskeletal and rehabilitation settings. She completed her Cert IV in Pilates in 2015 and since then has enjoyed providing specialised clinical exercise and Pilates programs for patients as part of their treatment and injury management.
After falling pregnant with a baby girl in 2017, Louise developed a special interest in Women’s Health, which inspired her to work towards becoming a titled Women’s, Men’s and Pelvic Health Physiotherapist. Through completion of her Clinical Masters in Women’s, Men’s and Pelvic Health and Incontinence, and having experienced the journey of pregnancy herself, Louise is driven to assist others not only post musculoskeletal injury but also through other major life events such as vaginal delivery and surgeries such as caesarean section, gynaecological, breast, prostate and orthopaedic.
Louise is proficient in treating:
- Mastitis (infection of breast tissue), nipple pain and breast-feeding posture
- Pelvic Floor issues related to pregnancy or postpartum
- Return to exercise postpartum
- Perineal (vaginal) tears and trauma
- Abdominal separation (Rectus Abdominus Diastasis)
- Bladder incontinence and bladder pain
- Vaginal bulging/heaviness/prolapse
- Vulvar pain (Vulvodynia, Vestibulodynia)
- Sexual pain (Vaginissm, Dyspareunia)
- Pelvic pain in Endometriosis
- Chronic Constipation
- Prostate surgery prehab and rehab
Previously a dedicated full-time gymnast, Louise also enjoys participating in netball, volleyball, swimming, Pilates and Xtend Barre. She believes these sporting experiences have also given her a better understanding of injury prevention and return to sport management post injury or postpartum.
