About Rx Physiotherapy Wollongong

Profile image of owner and head physiotherapist Dr April Patterson

About 5 years ago I developed a love for CrossFit after years of attending a commercial gym. CrossFit provides a functional method to improve your body's ability, health and wellbeing with a community feel to always brighten your day.

After completing a Bachelor of Exercise Science I continued my studies at Bond University on the Gold Coast where I completed the degree Doctor of Physiotherapy. Throughout this degree we had extensive clinical placements covering all areas of physiotherapy. I took a particular shine to the musculoskeletal world as every person was a unique puzzle, and combined my love with connecting with people with my ability to use my acquired knowledge to help educate and empower them to improve their pain.

​My goal is to help promote self-management through education and motivational coaching strategies. I believe as a physiotherapist it is our job to understand and apply a unique approach to every individual. As each person has a unique story and perspective on the world.
