Ivana brings to Secret Women’s Business Physiotherapy a wealth of experience, combining her skills in manual therapy, exercise prescription, dry needling with a deep passion for women’s health physiotherapy. Ivana’s gentle manner, warmth and experience ensure all her patients feel at ease.
Ivana’s passion for women’s health was ignited as a sole female practitioner in a busy private practice clinic. In this environment Ivana found herself being sought out and valued by women not only musculoskeletal injuries but also for their most concerning conditions including incontinence, pelvic pain, and pre and post-natal recovery.
Once working in the area of women’s health, Ivana’s passion grew quickly and her desire to specialise in this area of physiotherapy emerged. Since 2017, Ivana has focused her professional learning in the complex and multi-faceted area of women’s health.
As a physiotherapist, Ivana strives to work collaboratively with her patients to achieve their treatment goals, encourages self-management of ongoing conditions and promotes personal control of general health and lifestyle improvements.
Outside of work Ivana enjoys knitting, spending time with family and friends, pilates and walking
