Experience

Amanda has a Masters in Health Practice with Distinction (Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy, Sport & Exercise Science) and a BHSc (Physiotherapy)

Since graduating in 2006 from AUT, Amanda returned to the Waikato, spending just over a year working at Waikato Hospital and then moving into private practice. Amanda completed her Clinical Masters in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy in 2011. This further training has provided her with the most up-to-date assessment and treatment techniques which she uses in her day-to-day practice to help her patients achieve the best possible results - from the aspiring athlete to the weekend gardener. Amanda has worked with a number of sporting teams, predominantly in Netball and Rugby. Keen to make a difference in reducing serious injuries in sport, Amanda worked in an injury prevention role with Netball New Zealand & ACC for two years - delivering the NetballSmart injury prevention programme across the Waikato/BOP Zone. Amanda finished this role in late 2019 when she was appointed to the Waikato BOP Magic Netball Team as their team Physiotherapist.
