Physiotherapists

Kristy Herd
Kristy HerdPractice Principal

I began my first degree in Sport and Exercise Science in 2003 while employed by Australian Defence Force in Queensland, before completing my bachelor of Physiotherapy at the University Notre Dame Fremantle in 2009. I spent 8 years in the military and after completing my study, moved on to pursue a career as a private practice Physiotherapist.

Since graduating I have worked in various private practice and hospital settings including; orthopaedics, spinal rehabilitation, private practice, musculoskeletal in patients and out patients, and have been involved in many sporting tournaments dealing with on field injury management.

I now focus on musculoskeletal/sports-related injuries. Over the years I have developed an effective approach to pain management by using movement analysis often involving video recording of movement patterns. In conjunction with this, I use a hands-on approach to treat pain and dysfunction such as specific soft tissue techniques including myofascial release, joint mobilisation and dry needling. Strength and restoring normal movement patterns is important for pain resolution so I have adapted the use of electronic exercises programs and regularly utilise gyms to assess movement and training techniques.

Outside of Physio and Inflow I keep busy with 2 young boys, I have an adventurous nature, regularly getting outdoors to hike, trail run, play touch rugby, and participate in the odd triathlon.

I am passionate about my profession and providing a high level of ongoing care to patients.

Massage Therapists

Whilst studying my diploma of Remedial Massage, I developed a deeper understanding of the anatomical and biomechanical relationship of pain and dysfunction.  This has led to my strong interest in reducing pain and facilitating clients by applying manual therapy techniques and active rehabilitation plans.

I utilise a range of techniques to reduce pain and improved function and mobility including trigger point release, myofascial techniques, joint mobilisation, PNF stretching and muscle energy techniques.

My background in personal training, fitness and sport has helped me develop a sound understanding of exercise and movement.

My passion is to give clients pain relief and to make them feel and move better, focusing on postural improvement and developing self mobility programs, with the ultimate goal an improvement in quality of life.

I have played basketball since childhood and have first hand experience of the rigours that your body is put through in fitness, training and contact sport.
I actively pursue professional development to further my knowledge and techniques for the benefit of my clients.
