She brings a wealth of treatment experience covering orthopaedics, women’s health issues, and general surgical rehabilitation along with other specialised interests such as vestibular treatment. Kirsty will always challenge her patients to get the very best from them and to ensure their speediest recovery. She loves travelling, camping in the great outdoors and kayaking.

Lisa Keadin
B.Sc(Physiotherapy), APA Member

Lisa joined our team in 2014 after moving to Australia from Ireland the year before. Having graduated from University College Dublin with a first class Honours degree in Physiotherapy, she gained an internship alongside a specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapist in Dublin. Here she gained vast experience in back and neck pain, musculoskeletal injuries and chronic pain management. She has worked with both an Irish Premier League soccer team and a Gaelic football team; with these she developed her extensive knowledge of sports injuries and rehabilitation, and for which she now has a special interest. Lisa is a Clinical Pilates instructor, and enjoys working on her technique in her spare time! She enjoys all sport, especially AFL (as it bears similarities to her favourite sport, Gaelic football!). Ed is hopeful she will become a die-hard Eagles fan.
