Our latest import, Zak brings to Construct Health a wealth of experience garnered during his time working in a highly successful group practice setting in New Zealand. Zak has worked extensively with work-related injuries, chronic pain rehab and sporting injuries.
Zak’s experience also extends to using advanced software and video analysis to assess gait and movement patterns to identify areas of weakness or imbalance that contribute to injury or limit patients from achieving full pain-free movement.
A keen athlete, when not helping his patients to get better Zak can be found on the rugby or touch-footy field mixing it with the best.
Robyn joined the Mackay clinic in 2016 after graduating from James Cook University in Townsville. She has made the move from Townsville to join the Construct Health team. Robyn has an interest in orthopaedic surgery rehabilitation and paediatric physiotherapy having spent some time with the Disability Services Queensland team in the past. Robyn also finds treating sports injuries rewarding when her patients can make it back on the field or in the ring.
When she’s not at the clinic Robyn splits her time between her foster kittens, and finding her next weekend holiday spot in Mackay.
I have worked 20 years within the profession and have experience within hospitals and clinics, sport clubs and the army, I have even worked within schools.
The majority of my professional development has been on spinal pain neck, thoracic and lumbar. I have also completed a number of courses on dry needling and learnt some acupuncture points.
From working on an orthopaedic ward I feel more confident to assist with post surgical rehab. Also at two hospitals I worked as the women’s health physiotherapist and since having children of my own I feel I am more empathic to mothers and able to give more practical post natal advice.
I also work as a gymnastic coach and have an interest in injuries and musculoskeletal pain of a growing body.
