Therapists

 

Headshot Thuy BridgesThuy (Twee) Bridges – Senior Physiotherapist & Director

Thuy founded PhysioWISE in 2002 after identifying the need for a physiotherapy practice which could utilise the latest health care techniques from around the world and incorporate them into a clinical setting to help her clients reach their optimum health level in the shortest time possible.

Beyond her qualification as a Physiotherapist, Thuy is a certified trainer of Pilates, Yoga and Tai Chi and is trained in acupuncture and dry needling for Myofascial pain along with a range of Osteopathic techniques.

As a Certified Kinesio Taping Instructor and Anatomy Trains Associate Teacher, Thuy teaches courses to other physiotherapists in Australia and internationally.

She has also been involved with University research in this area and is a clinical supervisor of final year students from the University of Sydney and Macquarie University.

After graduating from a Masters of Physiotherapy at the University of Sydney, Rebecca embarked upon private practice with gusto. Like all of our Physios, Rebecca searches for the root cause of pain by assessing and treating the underlying “drivers” as well as the injury or issue at hand. Rebecca’s bubbly, chatty personality complements the physical therapy she provides through manual releases, Kinesio taping and education.

As a competitive touch football player, Rebecca understands first hand the demands that a beloved sport can have on the body. She balances this active part of her time with cooking and gardening.
