I have been working in allied health and multidisciplinary clinics since 2005. My interests are in musculoskeletal and neurological conditions, with further study and training in neuromuscular technology/equipment to support rehabilitation and also in pain management. From a treatment perspective, as an Accredited Exercise Physiologist, my focus is on listening to clients to develop appropriate goals that allow them to be more independent.
Polio survivors are a population who have limited support, and knowledge within the medical and allied health community. Often they provide guidance from their own research to their treating professionals. I am very excited to explain how allied health professionals can make a difference to polio survivors by providing some background knowledge on the factors behind this pathology, important aspects related to assessment and treatment, and also linking in with other allied health professionals.
Paul will be delivering Clinical Practice Workshops across the country over three years. Visit our Polio Health website for further details.
