Meet Louise

Louise began working in the specialty area of hand physiotherapy in 2006 and was soon to realise that this is where her interest laid. In 2013 Louise completed USA based specialisation exams in hand therapy to become the first Certified Hand Therapist in Canberra.

In 2010 Louise established a hand physiotherapy service at SportsCare, originally at Garran in partnership with the University of Canberra Physiotherapy student led clinic. A few years later the clinic was relocated to Barton and is now a hand clinic team with 4 hand therapists. The speciality service expanded to the north side of Canberra in partnership with Ochre Health at the Bruce campus in 2015.

Louise is involved with the local hands special interest group and presents at sports course run through the Australian Physiotherapy Association and GP training workshops. She also is passionate about creating the ideal workplace for her staff to stimulate learning and furthering the awareness of hand therapy in the Canberra community and surrounding areas through education and support.
