Staff Profiles

  • "Physiotherapist/Physical Therapist"

    My name is Cath Julius and I am a physiotherapist, originally from Melbourne. After graduating in 1998, I spent many years working within some of the largest Sports Medicine Practices in Australia. Working closely with top Sports Medicine Physicians, Orthopaedic Surgeons and other health professionals gave me an amazing grounding in all aspects of injury assessment and management. I quickly grew to love all aspects of hip assessment and management.

    In particular, I became fascinated with movement analysis and exercise therapy. This passion led to the study of Clinical Pilates. I fell in love with the use of Pilates equipment to help facilitate movement and enhance recovery and I quickly began to focus on this unique form of rehab as a key part of my Physiotherapy treatment.

    Having moved with my young family to Christchurch, I am very excited to be in the position to now offer Christchurch locals the unique benefits of expert physiotherapy treatment combined with Clinical Pilates rehab. I continue to expand my clinical experience and expertise in the treatment of Hip Pain and Dysfunction, working closely with local hip surgeons and other related specialties. I am also proud to be developing specific Hip and Lumbar Rehabilitation programs for our clients. These programs will continue to advance and develop as I do further research as part of my current Sports Medicine Masters qualifications.
