Eliana Lonsdale (APAM)Physiotherapist (APAM), Accredited ONERO Practitioner

    Why did you become a physio?

    I have always been interested in science and health, and grew up playing a variety of different sports. During my own physio rehabilitation for netball injuries as an early teenager, I realised that a career in physio could offer me the perfect combination of science, health and sport. I am passionate about helping people get back to their physical best, to continue pursuing the things they love.
