Mandy Lung

General Physiotherapy

After completing a degree in Exercise Physiology followed by Physiotherapy in Sydney, I decided it was time to explore more of Australia, particularly Queensland and its warmer waters.

My experience in both physiotherapy and exercise physiology has allowed me to see a wide range of conditions and appreciate the significance of an individualised treatment plan.

Having undergone an ACL reconstruction, I understand the frustration of not being able to participate in a sport you’re passionate about. So being able to empower clients through education and to modify activities so clients can continue to do the things they love, I believe, is the success of obtaining the best outcomes.

On days off, I love exploring the outdoors, hiking, heading to the beach, baking (always open to new recipes) and trying my hand in a variety of sports.
