Erin Fretheim B.H.K., M.P.T
Chartered Physiotherapist Dublin

Erin is originally from Vancouver, Canada. After deciding to make a huge move to Sydney, Australia, she completed her Masters of Physiotherapy from the University of Sydney in 2012. She continued to live and work there and found her passion in orthopaedics. She worked in private practice in an orthopaedic clinic treating everything from acute sports injuries to chronic pain conditions and treated patients across the entire age spectrum. After moving back home to Vancouver for a few years, she decided to once again make a big move coming to Ireland. With her background and love of using exercise as treatment (she has a Bachelor Of Human Kinetics with a Concentration in Kinesiology from Canada), she continued treating patients back home in Canada as an Exercise Therapist while preparing for her move to Ireland. 

She loves educating patients so that they can participate fully in their own recovery, and believes that movement is one of the most important parts of treatment. She learned wonderful hands on techniques while in Australia, but equally loves getting patients to move and exercise, no matter what their injury. 

Erin is delighted to be treating patients who have been seeing Germaine, while Germaine is on maternity leave.
