Elle is originally from New Zealand where she completed her degree in Physiotherapy at The Auckland University of Technology in 2000. Elle worked with a New Zealand rugby team providing a full physiotherapy service for four years. She also worked in a private medical hospital where she treated a range of conditions from neurological to musculo-skeletal injuries.
Elle then moved to England in 2003 to further her physiotherapy training and obtained a qualification in Animal Physiotherapy. She was head hunted and employed by the Chinese Eventing team to be the Olympic Team Physiotherapist for the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008, treating both horses and riders.
She is also a qualified acupuncturist, and has lectured in England and Europe on physiotherapy.
Elle is a keen runner, and to date has run 45 marathons and ultra marathons (it would be considerably more but for Covid-19 pandemic stopping events). She first competed in a running race at the age of 10 years, and won every long distance race she competed in throughout school.
To date she has only had one running related injury. She puts this down to knowing how to prevent injuries, and acting immediately to any niggles that appear. She has a sports massage 3-4 days following a marathon to ensure there are no problems. She was due to run two of her longest endurance events to date in April 2020 - 'Ten in Ten' with Phoenix running - ten marathons in ten days, and in the following month May 2020 - 'The 777' - 7 countries, 7 marathons, 7 days - hopefully this can go ahead in 2022!
Elle believes it is very important to exercise, both for physical benefits, but more for mental health. You don't need to run marathons, but it is important to be active and here at Silver Fern Physio we want to help keep you moving, pain free, and happy.
