Cat Egan

Cat completed a Bachelor of Physiotherapy with James Cook University and holds a passion for injury rehabilitation and prevention. Cat enjoys assisting her patients to decrease their pain, improve their movement and return to their work, hobbies, and sport. Cat aims to enhance the quality of life of all her patients and is skilled in dry needling, manual therapy, and exercise prescription. Cat also enjoys facilitating her weekend pilates classes.

Cat has a unique view of the broader medical system, having worked in the health industry in various roles for over 12 years. Cat has also worked at Caboolture Hospital on the surgical and medical wards and has been employed in various geographical areas around Queensland.

Cat leads an active lifestyle and has previously competed at state, national, and international events in Athletics. She is a previous two-time Oceania Champion in the Open Women’s Long Jump. Because of her sporting background, Cat understands the demands of training and competing and knows what it’s like to experience an injury and go through the rehabilitation process.

Cat has previously worked on the sidelines of many sporting events providing acute injury management to both players and spectators. Over the years events, Cat has worked at the Townsville Triathlon Festival, Cowboys Rugby League matches, the NAB AFL Cup, and International Cricket Matches. Other events have included various school sports, motocross, motorsport events, rodeos, and horse racing.

Cat has strong military ties in her family. Because of this, Cat has a vested interest in assisting the defence community and enjoys helping both current and ex-serving defence personnel and their families overcome their physical injuries and improve their quality of life.

On her days off, Cat enjoys walking and running to the local park with her daughter in her pram and spending time with her husband and those nearest and dearest to her, including her eight-year-old cocker spaniel. Cat also enjoys taking her daughter to swimming lessons and riding her mountain and road bikes. Cat’s long-term fitness goal is to put herself out of her comfort zone and compete in a sprint triathlon.

Cat is currently on Maternity Leave and will be returning to the clinic later this year.
