My name is Katerina (Kat) Dimitrievska and I have been a physiotherapist for 8 years. I have a post graduate diploma in sports and exercise conditioning and in the process of doing my masters. I have a strong passion for complex cases and chronic pain, as well as high performance sports. Being a competitive netball player myself, I have had experience with injury management both from a patient and physiotherapy perspective in a high performance environment. My philosophy is I cannot "fix" or "heal" you, but I can provide you with both the psychological and physical tools to self-manage and facilitate the healing process yourself. View details »
I've been working in private practice for the past 3 years and have enjoyed expanding my clinical skills in this setting. Throughout this period, I have also had some experience providing post- operative physiotherapy in hospitals, keeping residents as active as possible in a variety of rest homes in the Kapiti region and providing side line management for rugby teams. I have a lot of passion around functional strengthening and believe this is the best way to help guide and improve one's confidence to return to their individual hobbies- however physical that may be. My interests are centered primarily around persistent pain and the importance of education and over the past 2 years, I have really gained a lot of experience by assisting with management of complex patients. I believe anyone is as able bodied as their mind allows them to be, so with the right advice, encouragement and reassurance, one can achieve anything they put their mind to. My interests outside of physiotherapy include being outdoors and running so you may see me running around the Kapiti region or along the beach! View details »
I have been a private practice physiotherapist for 12 years.
I have a special interest in the manual therapy side of physio but also enjoy prescribing patients with exercises that will help them at home. I have a special interest in golf, swimming and running related injuries.
My general philosophy for Physiotherapy is that I am not healing you but I can help facilitate the natural healing process. I use a lot of hands on treatment to provide relief but also give advice on how to make things as efficient as possible.
