Diana Sercia physiotherapist Melbourne

Diana Sercia

Position: Physiotherapist - Melbourne

Diana has previous experience in both private practice and public health settings, working with patients across all age groups. She has supported NDIS participants living with Down syndrome, stroke, chronic fatigue syndrome, Alagille syndrome, chronic pain and mental health issues.

As a Physiotherapist, Diana has completed functional capacity assessments looking at measures such as strength, range of motion and exercise tolerance. These have guided interventions to make sure they were appropriate and success was measurable.

She has also worked with people in chronic pain, pre- and post-natal patients, and those with lymphoedema and musculoskeletal injuries.

As a clinical Pilates instructor, Diana delivered reformer-based classes in clinic- and mat-based classes online. She found this a great resource to help people generate body awareness and improve
on movement patterns, assisting with strength, fitness and pain management. Pilates can be applied anywhere and modified
for anyone!

Prior to her work in the private sector, she spent some time working in public health at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, where she assisted people with dementia, delirium and functional decline.

Diana finds the NDIS setting a rewarding area of work that allows her to create relationships and connections with people and have a helpful impact on the life of the participant, their family and their community.
