Jacqui Haskett graduated from California State University, Fresno, where she spent four years combining her study with competitive tennis for NCAA Division 1 on a full sports scholarship. She then returned to her home town of Adelaide to complete her Masters of Physiotherapy at the University of South Australia.

Her own experience in competitive sports fostered a special interest in helping amateur and elite athletes return to exercise after injury or surgery, and achieve their peak performance.

Jacqui’s other special interest is clinical exercise, with a particular focus on Pilates. After she sustained her own low back injury in 2012, Jacqui used Pilates to assist her recovery and has been practicing it ever since. Recently, Jacqui has furthered her professional development in this area by completing the full APPI Matwork and Equipment Pilates Training.

Throughout her career, Jacqui has primarily worked in private practice settings treating a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions and sporting injuries. She has experience with helping patients recover from surgeries, including joint replacements, reconstructions or arthroscopies, and can also treat conditions such as jaw (TMJ) dysfunction, Vertigo or BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo).

Jacqui uses manual therapy, as well as dry needling, and home and equipment based exercise prescription tailored to individual’s goals and abilities. She happily implements a multidisciplinary approach to Physiotherapy, routinely liaising with GPs or medical specialists, as well as other allied health professionals including Chiropractors, Podiatrists or Massage Therapists.

Outside of work, Jacqui enjoys spending time with family, and leading an active lifestyle including walking her dog, running, and practising Pilates.
