Kate Dyball, Physiotherapist
Kate graduated from La Trobe University with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy (with Honours) in 2009, and has spent all of her time since working in private practice.
She is committed to ongoing education completing her Masters of Physiotherapy (Musculoskeletal) at the University of Melbourne in 2014 and is currently undertaking a Masters of Exercise Science (Strength and Conditioning) at Edith Cowen University.
Kate has a strong focus on patient education and empowerment. She enjoys working with people to help them understand their injury and discuss their personal goals and then help guide them in formulating a management plan in going forwards.
As a keen endurance runner and rower in her own time, Kate’s areas of special interest include running and rowing related injuries, but also tendon based pain and knee/hip pain. She has a strong focus on exercise focused injury rehabilitation and prevention and taking people out of the treatment room and into the gym.
When she isn’t working, you will probably find Kate out on the river rowing or pounding the pavement around Melbourne, or enjoying a smashed avocado brunch at a trendy cafe whilst simultaneously complaining about Melbourne’s expensive housing market.
