Karise Wilson – Physiotherapist & Athlete

I am a passionate Crossfit athlete who has been in the sport since the end of 2009 and have competed on a team at the 2011 Reebok Crossfit Games. In my years Crossfitting and participating in nearly every other sport around, I have seen my fair share of injuries and understand what it is like to have to miss out on training. I want to get you back to doing what you love ASAP and will help guide you there with exercise based rehabilitation. I can work with your coach to help you get back to training also. I tend to use a lot of Dry Needling/Western Acupuncture, but also employ manual therapy, massage, Scenar therapy and exercise based rehabilitation in my treatment.

In 2012 I designed and created MobilizeMe – a mobility application for iPhone and Android with the aim to provide athletes the tools to access all types of mobility required to perform at the highest level, all in a smartphone app! In time, I hope to grow the application, adding additional stretches/mobility pieces to an already extensive list. I also conduct Mobility Seminars. For more information head to the Mobility Seminar page here.

I am based on the Gold Coast, Queensland and can be contacted for appointments via email or head to the appointment booking page. Alernatively, I can travel to your gym for mobile appointments.
