Laura Franklin

Bachelor of Physiotherapy

Pilates Instructor

Fitness Instructor



Laura graduated from the University of Melbourne in 2008. Since then she has worked in a variety of different clinics specialising in musculoskeletal and sporting injuries.

Laura has a keen interest in fitness. Over the years, she has worked closely with sporting teams and implemented successful injury management programs to reduce the amount of injuries on the sporting field and time off from sport/exercise. 

In her years of experience in treating injured patients, she found many people struggling because they kept re-injuring themselves at the gym, workplace or “giving up” altogether. With the knowledge and experience, Laura can provide the necessary support and guidance to keep you moving and give you the confidence to exercise or return to work/sport.

Our physiotherapy clinic is located at Vantage Point Estate. A cosy and comfortable private clinic in the setting of a home. If you are unsure of the location, feel free to call for directions and check out our Doreen physio.
