Kristina is a Melbourne based physiotherapist who completed her training at Monash University in 2012 obtaining her Bachelor in Physiotherapy degree.
Since this time Kristina has worked in a variety of settings, initially working across private and public hospitals, before transitioning to private practice and sports physio. Kristina then took her physiotherapy work overseas where she worked at a number of physio clinics in ski resorts based in Japan and Austria, specialising in winter snow-sports injuries. Upon return to Australia she has also worked with Australian winter sports athletes at Mt Hotham ski resort.
Kristinas’ broad sporting background at a competitive level gives her an excellent understanding of movement and injury patterns across a range of sports. Having sustained her own running and ski injuries meant first hand experience participating in and completing rehab.
Kristina recognises that keeping fit and maintaining appropriate training is crucial to ongoing heath and fitness, along with a multidisciplinary team approach for optimal outcomes.
