Courtney Booth - Sports Physiotherapist
Courtney knew from an early age that physio was her calling after having some amazing experiences with her physio when she was an elite, national level swimmer in high school. She graduated from the Australian Catholic University with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy and went straight into private practice to help active people reach their full potential and give others even more amazing experiences!
Courtney is our clinical expert in:
- Knee Pain especially with running, squatting or walking up and down stairs
- Ankle injuries particularly sprained ankles and Achilles pain
- Shoulder pain such as surfer's shoulder and pain when doing exercise overhead
Before becoming an active member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association Courtney was using her Sports Trainer Qualification at prestigious schools across the North Shore and Northern Beaches to assist with their sporting programs. She even coached netball and basketball teams through to winning their grand finals. She has also competed in touch football, baseball, netball and basketball for many years and has had her fair share of injuries like any physio should!
Having suffered these injuries Courtney knows how much of an impact they can have on your life. Courtney’s belief in the importance of active living is reflected in her desire to return people to their peak physical condition. She focuses on long-term solutions and patient education. This approach ensures that each person becomes self-empowered to overcome their injuries.
Outside of her passion for wellness and sport Courtney dedicates herself to the surf. Courtney loves to surf. Whether it’s planning trips down to Mollymook or up to Hawk’s Nest with her friends, surfing the breaks of North Curl Curl, Longreef or North Steyne (or anywhere on the Northern Beaches that suits the conditions!) or simply hanging out for the perfect set, Courtney will be in or near the ocean at every given opportunity. With this much passion for water, it’s easy to see why she loves treating surfers, swimmers and other water babies!
