Jennie Callan (Strathairn)

BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy, MAPA

Jennie qualified as a physiotherapist in Glasgow, Scotland in 2008. She worked in Glasgow for 4 years in a large hospital across many different departments gaining valuable varied experience.

She then moved to Sydney in 2012 to pursue her love for musculoskeletal physiotherapy and to further her career. Jennie started working at Avalon Physiotherapy and Clinical Pilates in July 2012, and within two years, became the practice’s principle physiotherapist.

Jennie developed an interest in pelvic health after the birth of her son. From attending several courses so far, she has learnt the significant impact that disorders in this area can have on your life. She enjoys treating patients who may have problems with continence or prolapse as well as patients who are anti natal and post natal. She is looking forward to continuing her professional development in the area of women’s health as it is a huge field of physiotherapy which is underrepresented on the Northern Beaches and is so important to the women of Avalon.

Jennie’s treatment often includes the use of clinical Pilates which she has found to achieve real and meaningful results. Improving recovery time, strength and stability. Particularly through the aged population and those recovering from chronic illness or surgery.

Jennie is a keen sportswoman, she represented Scotland playing Lacrosse for 5 years. She is also an avid golfer, which may have been inevitable being schooled in St Andrews. But since moving to the beaches spends more time on the sand having discovered the Surf Life Saving movement and all it has to offer.
