Area of Expertise: Pilates, Spine, and Shoulder
After graduating in New Zealand with a Bachelor of Health Science in Physiotherapy in 2014, Miranda began her physiotherapy career in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy at a private practise in Queensland, where her passion for exercise prescription began, and she started taking clinical pilates exercise classes in both mat and equipment. She completed the Polestar Pilates rehabilitation instructor series in 2015, and then has continued her training through APPI and undertook the antenatal, 3D standing pilates series, and is now currently completing all the APPI mat and equipment levels.
In 2016, Miranda moved to London on her British passport and continued her physiotherapy work in a private practise in North London. After working in private practise in the UK for 18 months, she then went via Cambodia and worked in rehabilitation at a paediatric centre for six weeks, before moving to Sydney and continuing work in private practise.
Miranda is really excited to have joined the team at Sydney Physiotherapy Solutions in 2019, and is looking forward to keeping up to date with the latest research at the clinic. She has enjoyed attending regular evidence based physiotherapy courses both in London and Australia; including Dry Needling, Lyn Watson’s shoulder course, Explain Pain, The Functional Movement course, Running Repairs, APA Sports Level 1, and most recently the APA Sports Physiotherapy Level 2 course.
Exercise has always been a big part of her lifestyle from an early age, and she realized as a young teenager the importance of rehabilitation while facing numerous injuries as a young teenager, as she played in age-group provincial touch, netball, and track, and also kept busy playing NZ age-group basketball (where she played in international tournaments in Australasia and Asia), and also in college on a US scholarship. This meant she became familiar with the patient’s journey, as was constantly seeing her physio to help her get back up and running.
A decade later, she now exercises a lot more recreationally, and loves to put her focus on helping others achieve their specific goals and active lifestyles. She regularly attends pilates classes each week, and is aiming to complete her 8th half marathon this year. Outside of sport, she has completed a psychology degree, and really enjoys the arts, reading, and spending time with friends and family.
