Hi, I'm Catherine Etty-Leal!

Physiotherapist at Camberwell

At a young age, Catherine’s dreams of becoming a professional dancer were unfortunately revoked, so she decided to pursue a career in physiotherapy because it was the “next best thing in [her] book!” After completing her undergraduate physiotherapy degree at the University of Melbourne, Catherine graduated with a Masters of Sports Physiotherapy and a Masters of Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy at LaTrobe University. Catherine is also a Certified APPI Pilates Matwork and Equipment Instructor.

“I love the look on people’s faces when they find that sense of self belief, usually when they’ve come back after a session or two of not believing they will ever get better, but then they have realised that they CAN do it!”

Catherine has extensive experience working across the public hospital system and in private practice and enjoys treating a wide range of musculoskeletal injuries and disorders, though she has a keen interest in paediatric physiotherapy. She has worked with elite athletes in various sports and has completed additional clinical training in paediatrics, including conditions such as plagiocephaly, positional talipes and developmental gross motor delays and has a passion for helping young people from birth up until their teenage years. She draws on her many years of clinical experience treating this population to provide them with family-centred care so they can achieve their goals in a timely manner. Catherine also is passionate about assisting new mothers and mothers-to-be in ante and post natal musculoskeletal conditions like low back pain, DRAM assessment and rehabilitation and pelvic girdle pain.

Catherine has also upskilled in areas of occupational physiotherapy, TMJ, hip assessment and management, spinal pain, and sports and dance training.

Outside of work, Catherine loves taking Pilates and yoga classes and cooking.
