Hi, I'm Eliza Laycock!
Eliza’s desire to choose a career in physiotherapy was a familiar one – her grandfather was a physiotherapist and when he passed away there was no longer a physiotherapist in the family so she thought it was her role to fill that void. When she started sport training for the East Fremantle Football Club she found a passion for rehabilitating long term injuries in sport (ACLs, leg fractures and recurrent shoulder dislocations) as well as being fascinated by concussions. This fuelled her for the rest of her degree to aim towards becoming a sports physiotherapist.
“I am passionate about helping people realise their weaknesses and help them find strategies to turn them into strengths.”
She completed her studies at the University of Notre Dame, graduating in 2018.
She has a keen interest in sport related injuries and working with motivated athletes and being part of the team. She is fascinated by long term injuries including ACLs, leg fractures, shoulder dislocations and concussions that still seem to have varying return to sport success rates despite vigorous research.
Eliza is an equestrian and competes in eventing/dressage events all over Western Australia on her Off-the-Track racehorse. She also enjoys sport training for the West Coast Eagles, spending time with her family and friends and her dog, Oreo and being involved in her local church.
