Having graduated from the University of South Australia in 1999, Felicity has extensive experience in the management of musculoskeletal conditions.

The opportunity to work with a local SANFL football club, travelling with junior South Australian State netball teams and spending a season working with the National South Australian Netball team, the Adelaide Thunderbirds, inspired her to complete her Masters in Musculoskeletal and Sports Physiotherapy at the University of South Australia in 2009.

In that year, she received the Marie Hammond Postgraduate Award, awarded for the highest achievement of the Masters of Musculoskeletal and Sports Physiotherapy.

During her Masters, Felicity refined and expanded her skills for many injuries or conditions, including back pain, shoulder pain, and sports injuries. Felicity has since become an Titled APA Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist, which means she undertaken a rigorous selection process to prove her clinical experience and knowledge to the Australian Physiotherapy Association.

She has particular interest in the assessment and treatment of the TMJ (Jaw), sacroiliac joint, and spine. The treatment of neck pain and headache is also an interest of Felicity’s, and she has worked with these conditions extensively throughout her career.

Felicity has also taken part in Connect Therapy training, the assessment of pelvis dysfunction and the thoracic area. She uses these techniques to help her diagnose and plan the most appropriate course of treatment for patients.

She thoroughly enjoys teaching people to improve their movement patterns and improve their body loading strategies through Pilates based exercise.

In addition to Felicity’s work at Move treating patients and teaching exercise classes, she also teaches Physiotherapy students at the University of SA.
