Rochelle developed a passion for physiotherapy from a young age, and moved to Melbourne from country Victoria to complete her Bachelor of Health Science and Masters of Physiotherapy Practice at LaTrobe University. Rochelle has since commenced studying a Masters of Exercise Science, focusing on Strength and Conditioning through Edith Cowan University.
Rochelle is a keen middle distance runner, and experienced quite a lot of success as a junior 800m runner, the highlight of this being a silver medal winning performance at the 2011 Commonwealth Youth Games.
This involvement in sport led to a number of first hand experiences of injury, and this has fuelled a strong passion for helping people not only get back to participating in their chosen sport, but also performing to the best of their ability.
Rochelle has a particular interest in treating lower limb conditions and has completed additional study in managing hip and groin injuries, tendinopathy, muscle injury management and strength and conditioning.
In her spare time you will find Rochelle running, incessantly listening to podcasts and enjoying Melbourne’s vibrant cafe scene.
You’ll find me in my spare time running, reading, and trying to steal pats from dogs that don’t belong to me.
My philosophy to physiotherapy is treat the person not just the injury. The most rewarding aspect of being a physio is the connections we get to make with our clients. I strongly believe that taking the time to listen to and understand the person you’re working with leads to better results, and more enjoyment for everyone involved.
The best piece of advice I’ve received is ‘it’s better to get a sore neck from aiming too high than a sore back from aiming too low’ (however, we can fix both).
