Courtney started working at HFRC at the beginning of 2017 after graduating from a Post Graduate Diploma in Clinical Exercise Physiology at The University of Notre Dame. Courtney’s work at HFRC has involved exercise prescription and delivery for a range of different patients, including those recovering from injury, musculoskeletal dysfunction, joint replacement surgery or those just wanting to improve their fitness, health, function and mobility both in the clinic and at their homes.

 

Over the past 12 months, Courtney’s focus has been delivering the 360 Patient Partner Program, which has involved working closely with a group of orthopaedic surgeons to deliver individualised hip and knee joint replacement pre- and post-operative exercise and rehabilitation programs to achieve optimal post-operative joint replacement outcomes.

 

Outside of work, you will find Courtney keeping fit through CrossFit or down south Surfing.
