Alana GardiniPaediatric Physiotherapist
Bachelor of Physiotherapy
Alana graduated in 2005 from The University of SA and in the years following has developed a love for providing physiotherapy to children of all abilities. She particularly enjoys working with children with Cerebral Palsy, having gained expertise in this specialist field through a wide range of post-graduate training and more than 10 years of experience in specialist disability services, public hospitals and private practices. Alana has worked alongside paediatricians, rehabilitation specialists, occupational therapists and speech pathologists both nationally and internationally. She is trained in Neuro-Developmental Therapy (NDT), orthotic provision, gait assessment, equipment prescription and hydrotherapy. She has a strong understanding of human movement, and a keen interest in the relationship between the sensory and motor systems. Alana wholeheartedly believes that ‘play’ is the key to
helping a child discover their body and to learn how to move ‘better’.
Alana works with adults as well as children, and finds her comprehensive Pilates training an extremely useful tool in providing holistic care to her clients. She is honest and caring, and thoroughly enjoys seeing her clients achieve even the smallest goals.
Alana is Mum to two very funny and feisty little lads and enjoys practicing yoga in her spare time.
