Kirsten Wing

Senior Lecturer in Sports Therapy

As a person I am innately curious. As a therapist I believe in functional and meaningful rehabilitation where ‘motion is lotion’. I enjoy engaging with industry while perusing academic inquiry.


I am a Graduate Sports Therapist with a masters degree in Applied Strength and Conditioning. My curiosity and conviction to my profession is both professional and personal with a close sibling competing as a para-athlete; for me it exemplified the power of rehabilitation, reconditioning and exercise in general.
