Alana graduated from University College Dublin in Ireland with an honours degree in Physiotherapy. Following several years of practice in Ireland she moved to Perth for a change of scenery. She is passionate about helping people through physiotherapy to stay as physically active, independent and pain free as their abilities and conditions allow. She has gained extensive experience working with people who have undergone surgery, joint replacements and those recovering from major fractures and has worked with elderly patients both in their own homes and in aged care facilities. Alana has helped them rehabilitate back to maximum independence following stroke, acquired brain injury, physical injury and surgical intervention.
As well as this, she has worked with those who have chronic neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s and Multiple Sclerosis. In treating people with multiple health conditions she has strived to help them stay as active, pain free, mobile and independent as possible. She has run exercise based falls prevention classes for patients aged 65 to above 100 and was able to reduce frequent falls by 33% in her previous work environments. While working in aged care facilities Alana worked closely with patients who were receiving palliative care helping them to remain comfortable and at ease.
As well as extensive aged care experience, Alana has worked in private practice gaining experience with patients who had been involved in car crashes, work related incidents and various sporting injuries. She also gained experience working in a Back Care clinic for people suffering with chronic back pain. This gave her a compassion for people who suffer from chronic pain as well as the tools to help them. She ran education sessions and exercise classes helping them return to the activities they loved.
When Alana is not working she enjoys surfing, training for surf lifesaving and spending time with friends.
