Meet Danielle

Danielle (Dani for short) completed her Bachelor of Physiotherapy in 2011, at the University of Newcastle. Since that time she has worked in private practice, the past 6 years at Edgeworth Physiotherapy in the Newcastle/Lake Macquarie area.  

 

Dani works particularly with pole dancers, aerialists, ballet dancers, cheerleaders, and gymnasts.

 

She has a few special interest areas, including hypermobility syndromes, overhead shoulder mechanics, foot and ankle injuries, pointe work for heels and ballet dancers, and core and lumbar mechanics.

 

Dani has been pole dancing for 9 years and teaching for 8. The best part for Dani is how well her two jobs complement. There is a lot she can learn from either one to help her students and clients achieve their goals!

 

Dani is super excited to join the Pole Physio team and share her pole knowledge with the world.
