Nita Hargovan

Having completed her Physiotherapy degree at the University of the Witwatersrand (South Africa) in 2001, Nita joins our team with a wealth of experience in many areas of physiotherapy.

Nita has worked in private practice for most of her career. Her long-term interest is treating musculoskeletal conditions, with a passion for helping her patients reach their optimal function. In addition to symptom relief, her treatments aim to prevent recurrence through individualised exercises and education. Nita believes that empowering her patients and working closely with each individual’s goals is key to attaining a desirable outcome.
Nita’s special interest is treating patients with neck and back pain. Furthermore, patients who experience headaches due to muscular and postural strain is her area of expertise. She is also able to assist patients with sports injuries and post-surgical rehabilitation. Excellent results are achieved through a detailed assessment combined with various treatment techniques, including soft-tissue release, electrotherapy, Dry-Needling and Kinesio-Taping. Nita is an avid learner and completed a course in Business Management in 2014 at Wits Business School, South Africa.

She is also a member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association (APC), AHPRA and the Health Professional Council in South Africa.
A balanced lifestyle is important to her, and she enjoys exercising. She was awarded her South African Table-Tennis colours in 1997.

Nita is available for physiotherapy appointments at our Woolloongabba clinic.
