Barb Denson (Wilmot), Physiotherapist
After obtaining a degree in Applied Science Physiotherapy in 1984 through study at Lincoln Institute/ Melbourne University, Barb initially worked in major public and private hospitals. She then moved into the Private Practice sector and consulted with Melbourne's Major Sports Clinics and covered all aspects of team and individual sports /spinal assessment, treatment, rehabilitation and exercise tailored programs.
Barb's physiotherapy career quickly evolved into the elite sporting arena with her first Australian Paralympics to Spain in 1992. Subsequent international events including World Championships and Paralympic Games revolved around mostly track and field, swimming, basketball events and many other sports at the events' on-site International Medical / Physio clinics.
Barb also built her own Industrial Sports and Spinal clinic, which included consulting to the State Ballet and Australian Open Tennis.
In 1997 Barb moved overseas and worked in an internationally acclaimed private clinic in Singapore for 10 years and the past 5 years travelled through Asia to events on the Professional Golf circuit. She was working for the PGA, European Tour, Asian Tour and One Asian Tour, treating some of the world's leading professional golfers.
Barb returned to Melbourne in 2013 and continues work with the International Golf Tours and Overseas Sporting events. She is now proud to announce her commencement of work locally at Spring Physio Gym.
Barb remains active running, swimming and generally keeps fit. She is a past National and State junior record holder in 400 M hurdles and has maintained an ongoing interest in all aspects of sports competition both for the social and the elite athlete.
