A combined interest in science and sport led Chantal to study physiotherapy. She completed her Bachelor of Science (Honours) Degree in Physiotherapy at the University of Hertfordshire, UK in 2008.
Following graduation she initially worked within neurological rehabilitation with a wide range of spinal cord and brain injury cases before completing her core rotations within the UK’s National Health Service.
This broad range of experience gave Chantal an invaluable base from which to build including trauma and elective orthopaedics, hydrotherapy, amputees, general rehabilitation and falls prevention.
Chantal has since concentrated on neuromusculoskeletal physiotherapy and worked in both the public and private sector in the UK. During this time she has completed a number of postgraduate courses including APPI Matwork Pilates Levels 1, 2 and 3, mobilisation with movement, spinal manipulation, problem solving the shoulder, dynamic taping and western medical acupuncture.
Chantal’s key physiotherapy interests lie within core stability rehabilitation, Pilates, low back pain, knee pain, shoulder instability and impingement.
Having spent the last 6 months travelling in South America and New Zealand she has now decided to relocate to Sydney to continue to further her career in musculoskeletal physiotherapy and joined Sydney Physiotherapy Solutions in June 2014.
In her spare time Chantal enjoys running, Pilates and swimming. Back in the UK she also played tennis and netball socially and previously competed in a wide range of horse riding disciplines.
Chantal has been published in the Journal of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists, Spring Edition 2014.
