I have been seeing Julia at sports and spinal for the last month. After years of chronic shoulder pain I finally feel relaxed and more open, allowing me to walk more confidently and free of pain!
(Translated by Google ) I’ve suffered from right lateral knee pain and right wrist pain for more than a year. Before I came to Julia, doctor diagnosed my issues as the knee strain and wrist membrane inflammation. I was offered some anti-inflammatory drugs to relieve the pain, and the doctor said I need surgery or injection for treatment. Physiotherapist Julia carefully identified the root cause of my pain with patience. After 4-5 physiotherapy treatment sessions, and following the prescribed exercises, the pain in my knees and wrists are entirely gone. I am genuinely grateful to Julia for her professional physiotherapy treatments and help. Thank you Julia, highly recommended! 👍👍👍
Julia has been treating me for knee pain and a Baker’s cyst. She is very professional and easy to talk to. She has been very informative and answers all my questions and concern as well. location is good as well, and facilities are very nice!
I went there for my shoulder pain (that has last for months) and an acute upper back injury. Julia is truly very knowledgeable and she just magically knows so well each muscle under the skin.
The upper back pain was gone the second day. I kept going in for several more sessions and my shoulder condition kept improving. Julia usually diagnoses the cause of the pain/injury, gives suggestions of proper postures, stretches out the knot/tight muscles, and teaches some exercise movements for better recovery. In conclusion – very helpful!
Superb care and personal service with a high level of professionalism from Julia. Knowledgeable, helpful opinion about My symptoms. Significantly improve my sport performance. Highly recommended .
Tell us about your background in physiotherapy
My ambition to become a physiotherapist dated back to 2008, when I was inspired by the physiotherapists who worked with the Chinese national team during the Beijing Olympic games. I graduated from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 2012 and joined the Hospital Authority. After working in public setting for several years, I went to Perth, Australia to study for a Masters degree at Curtin University. During my time in Curtin, I volunteered as a sports trainer for one of the Australia Football leagues in Western Australia. This has given me experience in working with elite athletes.
What are your interests?
I have an active lifestyle and enjoy running and hiking during my pastime. I also enjoy endurance sports, and I have completed two marathons and a 100km Oxfam Trailwalker, which aroused my interest in overuse injuries. Also, as a musician since high school, I enjoyed playing the double bass and cherished being part of an orchestra.
Tell us about a life-changing experience or adventure you’ve been on.
I completed the Certificate in Orthopedic Manual Therapy in Perth in 2016, and I was honored to be taught by several internationally renowned physiotherapists, including Kim Robinson and Toby Hall. Their excellent teaching and passion for treating patients motivated me to strive hard to be the best physiotherapist I could be. That was the reason I took a year off from work and studied master at Curtin University.
What is your area of expertise?
I am experienced in managing patients with post-operative conditions including ACL injuries, SLAP lesion and rotator cuff repair and helping them to return to the sports they love. Returning to sports and pre-injury lifestyle is one of the most important goals for patients, and it is crucial to make sure patients are physically, mentally and psychologically prepared for that.
I am also experienced in combining manual therapy with active exercises, which is particularly effective in patients with recurrent conditions such as neck pain and back pain.
With my education background from Curtin University, I believe good clinical reasoning and keeping myself up to date with current research is the key to providing the most effective treatments and ensuring positive treatment outcomes.
What is the most fulfilling part of this job?
Nothing is more rewarding than helping patients get back on their feet and resume doing things that they like. As a physiotherapist, I am privileged to perform non-invasive treatments to help patients in pain and help them stay active by addressing the underlying causes such as muscle imbalance and joint stiffness.
