She grew up in the spectacular Lofoten islands, but with strong ties to the Australian culture, people and lifestyle, she came back to raise her daughter in the beautiful Sutherland Shire.
Throughout her clinical experience, Cathrine has grown very passionate about seeing the whole human being and looking globally for why there is manifestation of pain and discomfort. She has a personal interest in how global movement patterns, childhood motor development, injuries, as well as psychological trauma, stress and thought patterns can manifest itself in the body.
Cathrine has a broad interest within the musculoskeletal field and often find herself looking for ways to expand her knowledge. She treats people of all ages throughout their lives and will adapt her techniques to the individual patient. She uses a wide range of techniques, which includes manual, low force, muscle strengthening, breathing and rehabilitation.
In recent years, she has developed a passion for paediatric musculoskeletal development and rehabilitation (baby rehabilitation). Especially the importance of our first years of life, which is when the brain and body develops quickly and our movement patterns are created, often for life. Childhood is when all the magic happens and when you can optimize the outcome!
She is particularly inspired by the rehabilitation technique Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS), which is safe to use for any age and you can read more about it here.
