Show Notes

Today's guest on Physio+10 is Trish Wisbey-Roth. Being one of 10, there was no silver spoon for Trish when it came to her education or becoming a physiotherapist, and early undergraduate and post graduate career experiences saw her almost give up Physiotherapy. However, determination and a goal to help people saw these obstacles pass into the rearview mirror as Trish moved forward in her career.

On today's podcast Trish talks about;

  • the toughest time in her life that occurred on the eve of her graduation
  • managing elite athletes and the importance of addressing the psychosocial components of their injuries
  • the importance of 'fake it till you make'
  • the benefits of working within a group of like minded professionals
