Physio+10 focuses on the journeys of trailblazing Physiotherapists and today's conversation is with Dr Mary Magarey. Mary is the only Physiotherapist to have achieved specialisation in two disciplines and has contributed enormously to both physiotherapy education and professional associations.
In this conversation with Mary we learn;
* Why she embarked on her career in Physiotherapy
* What she learned under the tutelage of two manual therapy legends, Geoff Maitland and Pat Trott
* Why she became interested in the shoulder and her unique take on managing shoulders
* Why Mary sees great things ahead for our profession
