As a practitioner and accredited Sports Medicine Australia Sports Trainer, Alyse has a special interest in sporting injury management and injury rehabilitation. She is highly trained in the treatment of headaches and chronic pain as well as in the fields of pregnancy, paediatric and geriatric care. She focuses her unique therapeutic skills on the causative factors of a problem to maximise recovery rates through a blend of hands-on therapy as well as exercise therapy.
Alyse’s interest in chiropractic began at a young age, due to the benefits she herself received from treatment. Growing up playing netball, tennis and dancing competitively, Alyse experienced foot and back issues that she struggled to find permanent relief from – leading her to seek out treatment from the practitioners at Gladesville Healthcare. She was inspired by the chiropractic principle of treating the patient as a whole and not just the injury itself, which she now applies to every patient she treats, working with them to not only relieve their pain, but improve their function and address their overall health goals.
