Julie Pham is our physiotherapist who brings with her a unique dual skill set in physiotherapy and podiatry. Through these professions, Julie naturally has a strong interest in lower limb conditions and this ability to employ dual disciplines allows Julie to take a superior approach in treating all musculoskeletal disorders beyond. All aspects of physiotherapy ranging from young children to the elderly are fascinating and Julie enjoys working one-on-one with an individual to achieve their goals using evidence-based physiotherapy practice.
Julie Pham graduated from the University of Notre Dame. There, she gained a wealth of experience contributing to the 2011 Busselton Iron Man by facilitating post race recovery. Julie excelled in all her musculoskeletal and orthopaedic practicum in major Perth metropolitan hospitals and her versatility was also enhanced during her experiences working with the WA State Rehabilitation Unit where she gained awareness into neurological impairments (stroke, brain injury and tumours) and how they impact on musculoskeletal movement and function. Having a family member, diagnosed with bronchiectasis, a chronic respiratory condition, Julie has also maintained her skills in cardio-respiratory physiotherapy which helps individuals manage their chronic conditions such as COPD, bronchitis, asthma, cystic fibrosis and numerous cardiovascular diseases.
Being a member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association and Sports Medicine Australia, Julie is continuously upskilling her interests in sports physiotherapy management and orthopaedic post-op rehabilitation. As a previous competitive gymnast for several years, Julie understands the stresses and strains that injure the body and likewise the importance as well as demand in returning to normal strength. Therefore, implementing an effective treatment regime with early return to previous level of activity is Julie’s highest priority as she takes most pleasure in seeing the difference it makes to a person’s quality of life. Her depth of knowledge is a valuable asset to Allsports and Family Physiotherapy Perth.
In her spare time, Julie enjoys staying active by swimming, running and participating in triathlons, yoga, pilates and surfing on the weekends. Julie enjoys travelling as well as spending time with friends and family. She appreciates good coffee, Perth sunshine and our growing city scene
