He has a special interest in neck pain and headaches, lower limb biomechanical issues, and spinal pain. When he isn’t busy looking after everyone else, he is a keen cyclist and dabbles in the occasional triathlon for a bit of fun, so it should come as no surprise that he has a further interest in cycling related injuries.

Lisa Keadin

Physiotherapist B.Sc(Physiotherapy) (First Class Hons), APA Member

Lisa joined our team in 2014 after moving to Australia from Ireland the year before, and we have absolutely loved having her energy and vibrant smile around the clinic ever since. Having graduated from University College Dublin with a first class Honours degree in 2011, 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 runs many of our classes here in the Clinic with an enthusiasm and vitality that is hard to match! She has further interests in women’s health issues and chronic pain, and approaches the treatment of her patients holistically with a variety of techniques ranging from manual therapy and myofascial release, to dry needling and massage and specific exercise prescription. Lisa loves Australia and has come to call our wide brown land ‘home’ in recent years. She enjoys all sport, and has even come around to AFL (as it bears similarities to her favourite sport of Gaelic football!).
