Message from the Principals
We are committed to helping bring quality, specific and principled outpatient physiotherapy to the Northern Beaches. We could not be more excited about getting involved in the local community, sharing knowledge and working with other practitioners to help people get the best out of life. Without local support, knowledge and mentors, supportive families and patients nothing can be achieved. We are humbled everyday by the commitment of our patients and their families, their stories and outcomes, and cannot wait to keep being blown away!
Physiotherapist – Neurological
Carleen graduated from University of Queensland in 1988 and moved to work in Rockhampton. Here she worked in the base hospital and private practice, preferring already the work in rehabilitation. Carleen then travelled to England and began discovering hands on facilitation in the treatment of neurological conditions.
On return to the wonderful sunshine state, Carleen had a great 5 years specialising in neurological treatment, both acute and in the rehabilitation stage at the Gold Coast. After completing several courses she developed a keen interest in acquired brain injury, working with acute patients, while awaiting admission to the specialized unit in Brisbane.
She then continued to travel and left for the USA, working in a short term rehabilitation unit and community care, which was a very different experience. Eventually she returned to the sunshine and began a fantastic 10 years working in the Brain Injury Unit in Brisbane at Princess Alexandra Hospital. It was at this time that she became a clinical specialist and spent time supervising university undergraduate and postgraduate students and assisting in research.
For family reasons, Carleen moved to Sydney about ten years ago and has since worked at a home rehabilitation service, followed by returning to her passion of neurological rehabilitation at a private rehabilitation hospital.
During her (many) years of working as a physiotherapist, she has enjoyed developing her skills working with many varied conditions including acquired brain injury, stroke, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, vestibular dysfunction, muscular atrophy, functional gait disorder and Parkinsons disease. Carleen firmly believes that Neurological physiotherapy teaches you that no one patient can be treated the same – each person is a unique individual with unique abilities and unique dysfunction.
