Ellen graduated from the University of Otago with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy. Originally from Christchurch, she is delighted to be based within her home town. Ellen has a particular interest in combining hands on treatment with gym/home based rehab, dry needling, and pre and post operative care amongst other things. Having previously worked in musculoskeletal clinics and in a private hospital setting, Ellen has experience in a range of conditions and is able to treat athletic and not so athletic populations. She is a firm believer in patients taking the reins for their injuries, and strives to provide good education so that her patients fully understand their conditions and can make informed choices regarding their treatment. Outside of work, Ellen has recently rediscovered her love of gardening and can be found most sunny weekends digging up her veggie patch.
