Emily Cousins

Holding a Bachelor of Exercise Physiology, a Doctor of Physiotherapy, and currently working towards her Masters of Sports Medicine (Physiotherapy), Emily is a lifelong learner who is extremely passionate about her work.


Growing up in the world of dance/ballet and high-level competitive tennis, gymnastics and touch rugby, Emily developed a special interest in sports physiotherapy and injury rehabilitation. She now enjoys working with individuals to manage their injuries and optimise their performance, particularly youth and female athletes.


In addition to her work in private practice, Emily has extensive experience as a sports team physiotherapist. Previously working for the North Melbourne and Carlton VFLW teams, Emily currently holds the role of Head Physiotherapist at Port Melbourne Sharks (NPL). This has given Emily great knowledge in the assessment and treatment of both football and soccer injuries in both boys and girls.


Along with her private practice work, Emily also works at St Vincent’s Private in East Melbourne as an acute orthopaedic Physiotherapist. This gives Emily great exposure to many of Melbourne’s best orthopaedic surgeons and great experience in pre- and post-operative rehab. Emily has also gained lots of experience helping people manage their arthritic joints to help prevent surgery or stronger pain medication.


Emily is also an Exercise Physiologist, which is obvious in her detailed knowledge of exercise prescription and chronic disease management in her practice as a Physiotherapist. This includes guiding those with conditions including osteoporosis, multiple sclerosis, diabetes and cancer.


When she’s not helping people, Emily enjoys playing touch football and tennis.
