About SoHo Physio

After eleven years working in Scotland and Wales, I have returned with my family (and a wealth of knowledge and experience) to Tasmania to set up in beautiful South Hobart.  I love the local community and incredible outdoor environment.

I treat people of all ages and backgrounds, and a wide variety of issues, whether acute or chronic.  I aim to provide expert physiotherapy care for sports and occupational injuries, back or pelvic pain, neck/shoulder pain and headaches, as well as persistent pain or complex problems. Treatment is designed to optimise movement and function and  alleviate pain.

Aside from treatment and rehabilitation, I also a work with optimising performance, especially in sports such as running, swimming, cycling and skiing.  Whether you’re a weekend warrior or an elite athlete, I can help you achieve your goals.

I am so excited to be working here and I am committed to collaborating with you to find the source of the physical issues you may have, and to help you unlock your full potential.

What is Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy?

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy is a branch of physiotherapy focusing on problems of the muscles, bones, joints, cartilage, intervertebral discs, ligaments, tendons and nerves. A person qualified in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy is regarded as an expert in their field and they employ advanced clinical assessment and diagnostic methods, and have been trained in a broader range of treatment techniques. As a result, they are leaders in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of problems relating to the musculoskeletal system. This can incorporate anything from sports injuries to sciatica.

About the JEMS approach

 

“JEMS is a movement enhancement approach for people of all walks of life, occupations and interests. It is a systematic, effective method which targets the body’s efficiency of motion, and addresses physical performance as well as injury prevention and rehabilitation.” (excerpt from www.jemsmovement.com)

The relationship we have with our bodies is one that lasts a lifetime.  No refunds, cancellations or exchanges.  But this union isn’t always smooth sailing.  Sometimes we feel like our minds and bodies are not communicating effectively or working together optimally.  Maybe we get ‘tight’, sore, easily fatigued and, eventually, injured.  We lose efficiency and fluidity of movement.  JEMS can help you get back on track.

 

“This is how we start our journey – if we don’t know and accept where we are, we can’t plan a route to our destination.” Joanne Elphinston, JEMS founder.

 

Movement is an integral part of the relationship you have with your body, and JEMS helps you to discover new movement possibilities to help you reach your physical potential. It optimises movement and increases the size of your functional window.  The aim of movement isn’t to control the body; it is to set the body free!
