Staff Changes

Lane Cove Physio has two new team members.

A not-so-new face has joined the team at Lane Cove Physiotherapy – reintroducing Kirsty Tradell.

Originally from the sunshine state, Kirsty is no stranger to Lane Cove. Since following her husband’s work to Sydney 7 years ago, Kirsty has been helping Lower North Shore locals and families return from injury and regain confidence in their bodies’ abilities.

From a household entrenched in all things sport, Kirsty has always understood her patients yearn to return to the things they love in life, no matter if this is Sport; chasing after grandchildren (which can be like a sport); or being fit to take on their next travel adventure.

When Kirsty isn’t Physio-ing, you’ll find her either at the gym or hunting down the latest cafe/restaurant to taste test. As her patients know, she enjoys practising “balance” in life. She’s ready and raring to help sort out those niggles you’ve been holding onto, so come down to Lane Cove Physiotherapy and welcome her back to the Cove.

Emily Nesbitt is the new Exercise Physiologist after Emma Unwin left to take up a career in the Navy.  Emly graduated from the University Of Sydney with a Bachelor in Exercise and Sports Science in 2019 and a Masters of Exercise Physiology in 2021.

Her time at university gave her a wide range of experiences working across neurological and disability clinics, geriatrics, mental health and psychotic disorders, musculoskeletal conditions and in-home exercise delivery through the national disability insurance scheme.

She is passionate about exercise physiology as it is a unique treatment option because it empowers the participant to take a proactive role in their own healthcare. Exercise is highly effective at preventing many risk factors for chronic disease and improving health outcomes, quality of life, and perceived physical function.

She is also highly committed to Netball and has been a part of the sport since she was 8 yrs old. Currently, she is playing for North Shore United Opens Team in the NSW Origin Premier League. Netball is her favourite sport, and she thoroughly enjoys being a part of an elite training environment.

You can book to see Kirsty or Emily at or call  9428 5772.
