Physiotherapist

Elizabeth ‘Liz’ Saad graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Physiotherapy in 2016. She pursued this degree in order to help people get back to functioning more optimally and pain-free.

She spent over 18 months refining her hands-on skills at both the Peakhurst and Parramatta Sports Medicine Clinics clinics to gain a greater understanding of musculoskeletal injuries related to both work and sports.

Liz also values the importance of understanding the holistic nature of an injury and how she can help not just with a person’s pain, but also some of the underlying causes and aggravations. Which is why she is a perfect fit at the Sports Medicine Clinic.

Liz has a special interest in Women’s Health having completed Introductory Women’s Health Physiotherapy looking at maternity physiotherapy, pelvic floor, bladder, and bowel dysfunction.

Liz has worked closely with elderly patients in aged care and has seen the positive impact of exercise on their strength, balance, and coordination.

Liz is also qualified in dry needling and is a member of the Australian Physiotherapist Association and the Women’s Health Associates.

Outside of work Liz enjoys spending time with her family and friends and is constantly trying to fight off a chocolate addiction.

Elizabeth Saad’s Physiotherapy focus areas and treatments:

Dry Needling Physio:

This method of healing can assist with settling down those overactive muscles. Dry Needling stimulates muscles, this makes the muscles fill with blood and in turn speed up the recovery.

Women’s Health Physiotherapy:

Maternity physiotherapy, pelvic floor physio, bladder work, and bowel dysfunction physio are all interest areas for Elizabeth.

Elderly Patient Physiotherapy:

Helping people in their more senior years is rewarding for Elizabeth. She has visited and treated in many aged care facilities and seen her work increase balance, coordination, and strength in her elderly patients.

Pregnancy Physiotherapy:

When you’re pregnant your body needs extra care. Prenatal massage can help reduce the stress hormones your body is experiencing. This can be done through kneading the skin, as this decreases the water retention in pregnant women by reducing the edema and swelling. The retained water is sent away from your joints and tissues and redirected into your lymphatic system. Leg tingling pain is another kind of nerve pain that can be reduced through this kind of treatment.
