Caitlin Reid - Physiotherapist
Caitlin Reid is a Physiotherapist from Melbourne, VIC. An Irish dancer from the age of 10, Caitlin has extensive knowledge of the physical demands of dance, along with the associated injuries sustained by both young and older dancers. Involvement in competitive international dance, along with a professional career with the Australian Irish dance company makes Caitlin’s dance industry knowledge highly specialised.
Caitlin has also spent 2 years living in winter haven Whistler, where she spent time working as a Physiotherapist with professional skiers, snowboarders, and downhill bikers. Understanding the rigours of high performance training, and the need to return to sport as quickly as possible led to key involvement in the acute phase of injuries right through to rehabilitation. This knowledge is easily translated into the treatment of other high impact sports injuries such as AFL, rugby, martial arts, athletics, surfing and netball.
Playing piano for 16 years, Caitlin understands the demands of being a musician, and through Pilates, has devised postural techniques to compliment long practice hours.
Caitlin has always been interested in high energy sports, and it is this drive that led her to study Physiotherapy at Melbourne University. A lifelong keen interest in snowboarding, running, and dance has highlighted the importance of injury prevention, particularly through Clinical Pilates. As a dancer her pilates career started very young, culminating into eventually following this passion to instruct with Premier Sports medicine.
