Graduating from La Trobe University in 2009 with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy Paige commenced working at Newington Physiotherapy Clinic. After dancing competitively for over two decades and also working casually as a dance teacher Paige prides herself on her ability to connect with dancers using “their language” to be able to better support any rehabilitation from injury or implement a conditioning program to help prevent such injuries from occurring.
Paige had the opportunity to spend one on one mentoring time in 2014 with the Australian Ballet’s Principle Physiotherapist, Mrs Susan Mayes allowing her to refine her assessment and treatment techniques specific to dancers. She has also participated in many professional Development programs with renowned Dance Physiotherapist Lisa Howell.
Trained in Pre Pointe Assessments and Tertiary Dance Assessments Paige is able to identify areas of opportunity for dancers to work on technique and strength to ensure they can be the safest, strongest dancers they can be. With knowledge being key, Paige also enjoys educating local students about their anatomy and how they can use this to their fullest potential to facilitate turnout and flexibility.
Paige hopes to forge a strong relationship with the local dancing community students, teachers and parents alike and is always happy to talk with anyone who may be interested in what services can be offered.
