Jac’s extensive experience has given her the clinical skills to understand the biomechanics and root causes behind injury or pain, to ensure that the correct manual therapy techniques are used, appropriate exercises prescribed and ergonomic or lifestyle changes made. She uses the Pilates exercise method for injury rehabilitation and performance enhancement to compliment her manual therapy.
But it is not only Jac’s sound clinical knowledge and invaluable experience that makes her such a popular Physio here in Dubai; she is compassionate, approachable and understanding of those who are affected by injury – getting people back ‘doing what they love’ is central to her treatment approach.
