Em Batger

Em is the owner and head physiotherapist of Active RX Physio located in Sydney. Prior to starting Active RX with her husband, she was working in a busy sports & musculoskeletal practice where she was one of the club physios for Eastern Suburbs Rugby Union. 

She has a hands on treatment approach focusing on encouraging functional movement as an integral part of the rehabilitation process which has stemmed from not only working with elite level athletes but also from her years competing in sport at a high level. This experience has given her an understanding of not only the physical demands that training and competing can have on the body but also how important strength and mobility work can be when it comes to staying injury free.

Having completed extra study in Western Acupuncture / Dry Needling and Active Release Techniques (ART) which has formed an integral part of her treatment sessions, she is also a qualified Movement and Mobility Specialist via Mobility|WOD and the Starrett System and is currently undertaking a Pre and Post Natal Coaching Certification.
