Sophie Halsall-McLennan’s keen interest in sport took her to multiple National Athletics and Rowing Championships.
Throughout her sporting life, her disciplined training concentrated on perfecting her exercise and movement skills to remain competitive at that level. It was this same dedication that she applied to her study of physiotherapy at Charles Sturt University and later to operating her own clinic.
“In the Latrobe Valley in 2007, I opened the doors to Fresh Start Physiotherapy. I was determined to apply all my knowledge from study and competition. Now, with over 11 years’ experience, I still love developing my skills and working collaboratively with other allied health professionals to bring about optimal client results.
“Currently, I practice in Curlewis and Geelong and work with athletes, weekend sports warriors, the young and the young-at-heart. My skill set and experience enable a sensitive and professional approach to physiotherapy where complete client assessments lead to accurate diagnoses of both the obvious and underlying issues requiring treatment. A range of treatment options are available and these fit into a plan specifically designed to suit the needs of clients.
“When clients leave the clinic, they have confidence in the exercise and management plan that will have them moving without pain sooner. This may involve a tailored exercise routine or use of some of the special products available to assist. In some cases it may be beneficial for them to book another appointment for continued hands-on treatment to ease their pain or discomfort.
“My favourite aspect about being a physio is all my repeat clients and the referrals they send me. It makes me feel like I’m doing something right.”
Sophie looks forward to assisting you to return to full movement without pain so you may enjoy a life well-lived.
