Leandri Ganda

Qualified Physiotherapist

Biography

Leandri takes a great interest in working with athletes of all levels, across various codes. Being an avid trail runner and ex-provincial track athlete herself, treating athletes and understanding the stresses they go through is something that comes very naturally to her. She also fully comprehends the importance of preventing injuries and improving performance.

She relates easily with her patients and has a good understanding of what their rehabilitation goals should be as well as the frustration associated with the slow process of returning to full functionality.

Although treating athletes is a passion, helping individuals with non-sport related injuries is also particularly important to her. She strives to help clients return to performing activities of daily living and to improve quality of life.

So, whether you are trying to get back into completing your next race/event or just want to be able to get out of bed comfortably, she will treat you with the full attention and care that every individual deserves.
