RIOGHNACH BRADLEY

My name is Rioghnach Bradley. I have recently moved to Australia from Ireland, where I began my Physiotherapy career in 2015. Growing up as a keen but injury prone sports player, I was a regular visitor to my local physio. Not only did she manage to patch me up, she also sparked my interest in a career in Physiotherapy.

In addition to working in inpatient hospital settings and outpatient clinics, I have worked with a variety of sports settings including Physiotherapy Gaelic Football, Netball and Gymnastics organisations. I love learning about different sports and tailoring rehabilitation programmes for clients to meet the specific demands of their sport and individual role. I look forward to taking on the role of club Physio for the Waverley Old Boys Football Club in 2019.

I enjoy the challenge of all aspects of Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy and have a special interest in:

  • Lower limb injuries, particularly sports injuries of the knee, foot and ankle

  • Management of hip and knee osteoarthritis

  • Management of longstanding lower back, hip and knee pain problems

  • Post-surgical (orthopaedic) rehabilitation

I am registered Physiotherapist licensed to work in Australia and the United Kingdom.

  • Bachelor Science (Physiotherapy) First Class Honours. 2015. University of Ulster, Ireland

  • Master of Science (Sports & Exercise Medicine). 2016. University of Ulster, Ireland

  • Current Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Authority (AHPRA) Registration

I enjoy getting to the gym, reading and playing Gaelic Football. I am an approachable, patient, and highly motivated Physio. I look forward to working with you to help you achieve your health-related goals.

LOUISE
COMAN

My name is Louise Coman. I moved to Australia from Ireland last year where I studied and worked as a Physiotherapist. I graduated from the University Of Limerick, Ireland in 2015 with a first class honour’s Bachelor of Physiotherapy. Dealing with an injury can be a time of worry for many of us and I like to ensure that my patients feel like they are in safe hands and that can be offered reassurance and assistance in re-building confidence in their body. I enjoy getting to know my patients and building a trusting relationship. I think that it’s important to get to know my patients in order to tailor exercise programs, schedule appointments and accommodate treatments to their lifestyle and what works for them.

Women’s health is an area that particular interested me and I loved the time I spent working in a maternity hospital and teaching pregnancy Pilates. I find it is important to empower women to exercise in a safe and challenging manner and also provide a holistic approach to pregnancy related discomforts. It is my role to make one feel as confident and comfortable as possible in your body at this exciting time in your life.

  • Bachelor of Physiotherapy. 2015. University of Limerick, Ireland.

  • Current Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Authority (AHPRA) Registration.

I have always had a strong involvement in sport and participated at national level in tennis as a teenager and I am a qualified assistant tennis coach. Whilst living in Sydney, I want to live like the locals and enjoy running along the coast in preparation for a half marathon and have taken up surfing. I am a member of the local Eastern Suburbs Tennis Club.
