Ruth graduated from the University of Sydney in 2001 and has more than 16 years experience working in private physiotherapy practice. While the early years of her career were spent working in sports medicine, Ruth very quickly realised her passion in caring for women, particularly pre and postnatal musculoskeletal conditions and pelvic floor complaints.
Ruth brings extensive clinical knowledge and expertise to the physiotherapy team at Alana, and takes a holistic approach to assessing and treating her patients, incorporating education, manual therapy and exercise prescription. Her unique ability to treat the internal and external pelvic structures has led to outstanding results and a loyal client base. Ruth has undertaken a professional certificate in the conservative management of pelvic organ prolapse through the UniSA, which is the worlds first tertiary led physiotherapy certification for pessary fitting and management. She is on the Clinical Advisory Committee for Endometriosis Australia, is a PINC certified cancer rehabilitation physiotherapist, and is a qualified Pilates instructor.
A long history of treating high-level athletes has allowed Ruth to combine her love of travel and love of sport to tour around the country and the world with State and National sporting teams. Outside of work she can be found inverted on her Yoga mat with her three young children and a staffy clambering over her.
