Dip. Phys. PGD. Manip. Therapy

Consultant

Josephine Key is an author, mentor and practising neuromusculo-skeletal physiotherapist. She has over 40 years of clinical experience and  30 years as the principal physiotherapist at Edgecliff Physiotherapy Sports and Spinal Centre. Josephine is evidenced informed, but fiercely practical.  Her passion for bodies, their optimal function and how dysfunction drives pain states, underpins her work.

Her treatment approach distils the complex academic evidence, but enhances it with practical approaches inspired from multiple eastern and western manual and movement disciplines. She has refined this knowledge and developed a simple classification system which can be used to guide treatment approaches – The Key Approach. This is explained in her book: Back Pain: A Movement Problem.

Josephine has a particular interest in the nature of movement – understanding what constitutes natural healthy control and the relationship between altered axial posturo-movement control and many pain disorders – in particular those relating to the spine.

Josephine graduated in physiotherapy in NSW and gained a Postgraduate Diploma in Manipulative Physiotherapy from Sydney University.
