Over 20 years of experience working as a full time Physiotherapist, 7 years spent working in UK teaching hospitals and over 12 years working in private practice.  Early on in her career Sonya spent time working closely with Orthopaedic Surgeons & Rheumatologists and went on to complete a Diploma in Orthopaedic Medicine & then a Diploma in Injection Therapy.  After competing for many years in rowing, Sonya developed a passion for analysing the biomechanics of sports injuries.  Sonya presently specialises in rugby and golf injuries & rehabilitation & has been working with Arrowtown Rugby Club for the last 12 years as well as working on development with Wakatipu Junior Golf.  Her passion for analysis of movement has also led to the development of our Golf Analysis service which now uses high speed video analysis of the swing & body motor patterns, to improve your game from any standard.
