Katie Hartshorn

Katie graduated from Curtin University with a Bachelor of Science (Physiotherapy) after moving from Tasmania to pursue her studies. Now calling Western Australia home- thanks to a much warmer climate and lessened need for multiple layers, Katie’s love for physiotherapy stemmed from a lifestyle always involved in sport and fitness.

 

Recently playing cricket professionally for the Western Fury and Perth Scorchers women’s team, Katie was fortunate enough to be involved in the inaugural Womens Big Bash League and the following two seasons. Throughout her playing career within an elite environment, Katie developed a particular interest for the integral role of rehabilitation and prevention programs to ensure athletes can optimise performance and stay out on the field without being hampered by injury.

 

 She has since focused her passion into her career off the pitch and into helping people discover their body’s true potential in enabling movement to be their best medicine. This also led to the development of co-founding Perth Athletic Screening Specialists (PASS), a mobile screening business aimed at injury prevention and athletic performance that Katie undertakes in her spare time. Since finishing up as an athlete at the WACA, Katie also has spent time as physiotherapist for the underage state teams, including travelling to their national championships. She particularly enjoys working with young athletes as they learn how they can best move their body- especially as it continues to grow and become stronger.

 

A firm belief that manual therapy, exercise and empowerment through education is the perfect combination to ensure a holistic approach to helping you overcome pain and restoring is how Katie likes to approach her physiotherapy to ensure the best outcomes.

 

In terms of MOTION, Katie can’t look past a barbell and is currently trying (and failing) to perfect a handstand in her long term goal of being able to walk around on her hands.
