Bulk Billing for patients with a GP Management Plan
Private patients are seen as well
My name is Sandy Clarke, Physiotherapist at Pimpama. Being a Physiotherapist excites me. I am a born and bred Queenslander, having lived out West and up North, but my home is the South-East corner.
I was so determined to become a Physio, that I left my be-loved QLD and headed to the big-smoke of Sydney to study as a 17-year-old. I completed my Bachelor of Applied Science (Physiotherapy) in 1993. I began Private-practice work in 1994. In 2001 I returned to Sydney to complete a Master of Applied Science (Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy). This degree allows me to be a Tier 2 Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist, making me more qualified than most Physiotherapists.
I have done many weekend courses and been mentored by some fantastic Physios in both Australia and the United Kingdom. I believe the real reason I became a Physiotherapist is to treat myself, my list of injuries is long, sometimes I feel my body is broken. The techniques and skills I have learnt and been able to implement as a Physio on myself, has helped me overcome multiple injuries and allowed me to continue to live my life to the fullest.
I use these skills to have empathy with my patients and help them to overcome the difficult times they are facing in their lives. I love hearing your stories and learning what really makes you tick, that way I can develop an individualised program for you that truly gets you back on the path to recovery.
From acute sports injuries to long term chronic pain, my Master’s degree really helps me to diagnose the cause of your problems and put into place a treatment plan that relieves your pain, improves your function and gets you back to the things you love in your life.
I look forward to meeting every patient and getting to know them because with more than 30 years of experience in the Physiotherapy field I know this creates the best outcomes. When I look at my patients I see the whole person and not just their injury or presenting problem. Getting you back on track to where you want to be is my goal.
