JULIA RAPTIS (ESPOSITO)
Julia graduated with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy at La Trobe University in 2011. Since then, she has obtained extensive experience assessing and treating acute and chronic pain, trauma, orthopaedic and spinal patients while working as a senior physiotherapist in acute and rehabilitation hospital settings.
After transitioning to private practice Julia now uses manual and exercise-based therapy to treat a large range of sports and musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. She has completed post graduate training in Clinical Pilates (DMA), dry needling, shoulder rehabilitation and chronic pain management.
Julia created a pilot study which researched the benefits of clinical pilates involving orthopaedic patients which she presented at the Australian Pain Society Conference in Brisbane in 2015. She was also involved in creating the content and hosting multiple episodes for an exercise-based television program, which went to air in 2019 and is an active member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association.
After working in private practice for many years now, Julia has developed a special interest in women’s health physiotherapy and particularly enjoys treating pre and post-natal women. She conducts post-natal physiotherapy educational sessions to the local mother’s groups and she runs daily mums and bubs clinical exercise classes
