Rhianna graduated in 2018 from Curtin University in Perth with a Bachelor of Science in Physiotherapy. During her studies, Rhianna had the opportunity to work closely with full-time ballet and contemporary dancers at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts and contributed to a paper investigating the beliefs about low back pain in pre-professional dancers.
After completing her studies, Rhianna moved over to Sydney and gained experience working in private practice settings and teaching Pilates classes. She attained additional training in dry needling, clinical Pilates and pre-pointe assessments. Her experience includes a wide exposure across musculoskeletal pain and injuries, including hip and lower limb conditions. Rhianna has completed Dr Alison Grimaldi’s in-depth training on hip, groin and buttock pain.
With her extensive background in dance, Rhianna has a special interest in dance injury rehabilitation and prevention. Rhianna has worked backstage treating members of the Dream Dance Company and made the move to Brisbane after completing a full-time dance course herself. Rhianna continues to enjoy her dance training across all styles including hip hop, heels, and jazz in her spare time.
