BIO

Alison is our Principal Physiotherapist, with over 30 years of clinical experience and particular expertise in the management of hip, groin and lumbo-pelvic pain and dysfunction. Alison also has a special interest in the assessment and optimisation of lumbo-pelvic and lower limb biomechanics for running, change of direction and all weightbearing sports, aiming to maximize an athlete’s performance outcomes and minimize risks of injury or re-injury.

Alison completed a Bachelor of Physiotherapy at the University of Queensland in 1990, a Masters of Sports Physiotherapy in 1997, and her Doctorate in Philosophy in the Field of Physiotherapy (PhD) in 2008. Her PhD studies were concerned with improving our understanding of hip muscle function and the relationship with hip joint pathology and weightbearing stimulus.

These studies involved research collaboration with the European Space Agency. Alison continues to be passionate about extending our understanding of why we develop problems around the hip and pelvis, and what we can do to most effectively prevent and manage these problems. She has also been involved in a large multi-centre clinical trial on gluteal tendinopathy, that showed an 80% success rate for the physiotherapy intervention arm. Alison was instrumental in the development of this successful treatment protocol for gluteal tendinopathy and educating the treating physiotherapists delivering treatment on the trial.

She is involved with ongoing research studies through the University of Queensland, University of Canberra, University of Technology Sydney, and the Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland, and has pioneered the use of Real Time Ultrasound technology for the assessment and retraining of muscle function around the hip and pelvis. Due to her valuable contributions to research at the University of Queensland, Alison has been awarded the title Adjunct Senior Research Fellow in the School of Health & Rehabilitation Sciences. Alison has also been awarded a Fellowship by the Australian College of Physiotherapists, in recognition of her contribution to research in the physiotherapy field.

It is one of Alison’s core beliefs that research should be relevant to clinical practice and helping the patients we treat every day, and that physiotherapists in the community should have access to this valuable information to allow them to transfer this knowledge into clinical practice as quickly as possible. To this end, Alison continues to publish, present and provide practical workshops for other health professionals.

She also spends a considerable amount of time mentoring her excellent staff, ensuring they are up-to-date and able to provide a high level of clinical expertise for management of musculoskeletal problems.
