After graduating from the University of Sydney in 2003 Cally built on her strong foundations at the Westmead Children’s Hospital and Greenwich Hospital, in particular in surgical, rehab, orthopaedics, chest physiotherapy, burns and musculo-skeletal physiotherapy.

Cally’s  sporting background in netball, soccer, surfing and dance, soon led her to venture into private practice on the northern beaches of Sydney. It is this sporting interest which helped Cally hone her empathetic and consultative approach to her physiotherapy.

Cally returned home  to the Northern Rivers in 2011 to take up a position at Bangalow Physiotherapy. She utilises a combination of hands on manual therapy, and a strengthening clinical pilates approach in her practice as a physiotherapist, with acupuncture used as an adjunctive therapy. She enjoys working collaboratively with her clients to develop personalised home exercise regimes to compliment her physiotherapy.

Bangalow Physiotherapy brings clients with a diversity of issues. Some of the conditions Cally treats include:- back and neck pain, sciatica, sports injuries, tendinitis, post hip/ knee/ back surgery, pre and post-natal women, growth-associated conditions in children, torticollis in babies, stubborn chest infections and pneumonia.

Cally’s commitment inspires ongoing development of her professional skills, including the Mulligan Concept, the Sarah Key Method, and  Clinical Pilates for runners and pre/post-natal women. Cally’s ongoing interest in physiotherapy is guided by her passion to help people attain enhanced wellbeing and optimal physical functioning. She is committed to providing an individual and respectful approach with her clients to help each one set and achieve their goals.
