Ashleigh Podolak, Registered Physiotherapist
Ashleigh is passionate about all things health, performance and fitness. Growing up as a keen dancer, she draws from her own experience with injury and the demands of sport, developing a personal understanding of the challenges faced during the rehabilitation process and the value of an individually tailored rehabilitation program designed to meet the individual client’s movement and functional goals.
She strives to empower patients to make positive changes through a balance of hands on treatment and movement-based approach to rehabilitation such as strengthening and Clinical Pilates, using movement as medicine to maintain overall health and wellbeing.
Focusing both on physical and psychological implications of pain and injury, Ashleigh believes in educating her patients on their pain and encouraging them to take an active role in their healing and recovery process. Through selecting personal physical and wellbeing goals in collaboration with each patient, Ashleigh is driven to ensure everyone leaves her treatment room with their concerns thoroughly addressed, feeling reassured with the best possible treatment plan for each individual moving forward to participate in a fulfilling, active lifestyle.
She has a particular interest in lower limb injuries and enjoys treating performers and athletes.
Outside of the clinic, she keeps herself busy with dance, yoga, Pilates and recreational running
