Profile

Sophia is a 2013 graduate of the University of Melbourne Physiotherapy program. She also holds a Bachelor of Dance degree from the Victorian College of the Arts where she graduated in 2008.

Since graduating she has worked exclusively in the private practice setting, in amateur AFL football and elite and amateur level Australian baseball and has a interest in treating sporting populations.

In more recent years she has developed a particular interest in Baseball and holds the position of Head Physiotherapist with the Melbourne Aces Baseball Team who she travels with in the Summer months. In 2017 she also attended Spring Training with the Minnesota Twins, where she gained valuable insight into the training demands at the elite level. She loves to work with throwing athletes of all levels on shoulder and elbow rehabilitation.

Sophia has had a lifelong relationship with Pilates, starting out as a dancer in her younger years. Since then she has undergone further training in equipment Levels 1-4 with the Australian Physiotherapy Pilates Institute (APPI). She is an advocate for clinical Pilates as a great way to target specific muscle groups and re-train movement patterns.
