Alex is passionate about using Exercise as Medicine to treat and prevent chronic illness, persisting pain and injuries. She truly believes in working personally with her clients and collaboratively with their health team (GP, specialists, surgeons and Allied Health) to help them reach their desired outcome with a holistic approach to health & wellbeing.
Alex’s key areas of interest include exercise for the management of osteoporosis and falls prevention; Metabolic health and Diabetes management; Active ageing to improve physical function, cognition & longevity for those with Parkinson’s Disease and Dementia; as well as lower limb musculoskeletal rehab, typically ankle injuries, knee pain and Osteoarthitis.
She also has completed further training in Diabetes Management with Diabetes NSW/ACT, exercise for Parkinson’s Disease with PD Warrior, Pre & Post Natal Exercise with The Women’s Health Collective, and a Post-Graduate Certificate in Pain Science at The University of South Australia.
Alex loves an active lifestyle and spending time outdoors and in the ocean with her family! You’ll find her getting up early to train at the gym, go for a run, surf or walking her sausage dog Dash on the beach; then spending her weekends chasing a ball around the soccer field!
Alex’s locations are Kiama and Nowra at South Coast Specialist Health Care & GPH!
