Physiotherapist

Lucy Woodham

Lucy Woodham is our token Kiwi. She is an avid dancer with a keen interest in sports. She has experienced several injuries over the years, so it’s hardly surprising she pursued a career in physiotherapy.

Throughout her studies at Otago University Lucy was fortunate enough to work with Otago Rugby league, Otago NBL basketball and at the NZ National Rugby Sevens tournaments. These experiences fostered a love for sports physiotherapy with a particular interest in contact sports. Following this she continued to work with several high performance sports teams including the national Samoan sevens team during the HSBC World Series, the World indoor netball championships and the national age group football champs. She has also worked with national and international level athletes in softball, basketball, league, rowing, martial arts, indoor netball and indoor cricket.

In 2015 Lucy spent several months working in Cap-Haitian Haiti for the charity Hearts and Hands for Haiti. The charity’s mission was to set up the first rehabilitation training program in the country. Her role involved teaching musculoskeletal therapy, manual therapy, women’s health and professional development to first and second year students as well as supervising in clinics and hospitals. Lucy is still involved with her students in Haiti, providing ongoing mentorship. She has a passion for education whether it is with other physios, clients or herself. Lucy is currently undergoing postgraduate studies in Sports physiotherapy at Otago University School of Physiotherapy.

A large focus area for Lucy is injury prevention and movement dysfunction whether it is for the weekend warrior or professional athletes. This led her to complete her SFMA training. Her approach to pain and injury is to look globally, assessing the client as a whole and correcting movement dysfunction through manual therapy, dry needling and exercise prescription.
