Lara graduated with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy from La Trobe University in 2004. Since graduating she has worked in private practice and with several sporting teams, managing and preventing injuries.

Lara also has experience with prescribing personalised Hydrotherapy classes.
Lara is particularly interested in back and neck conditions.
A long time fascination with the human body during Pregnancy is what lead Lara to become a Physio in the first place. Since having a child herself, her view of realistic expectations of pregnant patients has softened and she promises not to tell you to stop lifting your toddler!
Lara also has a special interest in treating the jaw, especially when it is contributing to headaches.
