Cat Ryan (Level 6)

Physiotherapist

Cat completed her Physiotherapy degree at Notre Dame University in 2007 and is currently undertaking her Masters in Physiotherapy (Manips) at Curtin University. She loves to treat posture related neck and back pain, sports injuries as well as pre/postnatal complaints.

Cat has recently moved back to Perth from living for three years in the Netherlands. Although she loved this experience of working abroad, she loves being back in Perth where a healthy lifestyle is so accessible with beautiful weather and landscape.

Cat strongly believes that although injuries may slow us down, movement can help us through so much. She believes that exercise and healthy living is not just a choice, but a lifestyle.

In her spare time Cat enjoys time with her young family, running and of course, she loves to practice what she preaches…Yoga and Pilates. She also has participated in a number of Olympic distance triathlons, half marathons and the Sydney Marathon.

Cat Ryan is an experienced senior Physiotherapist with extensive post graduate professional development. Cat is dedicated to helping her patients by assessing, diagnosing and treating their injuries and guiding them towards optimum mobility and functionality. Cat Ryan is particularly interested in using Pilates inspired exercise as an active form of treatment to prevent pain and injuries and help her patients reach their health goals.
