Show Notes

Physio+10 focuses on the journeys of trailblazing Physiotherapists and today's conversation is with Dr Ebonie Rio. Ebonie started her journey after completing an undergraduate degree in human movements, before starting her Physiotherapy degree. Breaking her wrist 4 times gave her an insider understanding of what Physiotherapy involved.

In my conversation with Ebonie I learned;

  • About her personal tip to be 'ridiculously persistent' in regards to following your dream,
  • That strengthening a tendon isn't enough in the rehabilitation process,
  • That tendons are picky about what sort of load they respond to, and
  • Her thoughts on the strengths of our profession

Dr Ebonie Rio is a post doc researcher at La Trobe University having completed her PhD in tendon pain. Ebonie holds a Masters of Sports Physiotherapy and her clinical career has included comprehensive work at the Australian Institute of Sport, Australian Ballet Company, Australian Ballet School and currently the Victorian Institute of Sport.

Ebonie’s Physiotherapy experiences has included the 2006 Commonwealth Games, 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics and the 2012 London Paralympics. In addition, Ebonie spent 18 months travelling with Disney’s The Lion King stage show.
