About your physiotherapist

Nathan Kemp – Physiotherapist

Physiotherapist for sports, running and back related injuries

Award-winning physiotherapy scholar 

Nathan graduated from the University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Applied Science (Physiotherapy) Honours Class I. He also won the Academic Merit Prize in 2009 as one of the highest performing students in the Faculty of Health Sciences.


Professional physio care from one sports fan to another

He offers physiotherapy assessments and treatment for all sports, injuries and levels – from kids and adults who play for the pure recreational joy, all the way through to participants at national tennis championships, gymnastics competitions and other elite sports.
Having competed at state level athletics, cross country and swimming, and at national surf lifesaving championships beach sprinting, he knows how important sport and exercise is in so many people’s lives.

Nathan’s own love and knowledge of his sport and exercise – along with the sprains, strains, tears and niggles that have come with them – means he provides you with:

  • •  very caring, empathetic sport and running physiotherapist treatments
  • •  a unique perspective when carrying out detailed biomechanical assessments
  • •  an invaluable blend of professional expertise and firsthand athlete experience.


He’s also the thinking back-pain sufferer’s physio
In his Honours research project, Nathan investigated the factors leading to the development of low back pain. He has great a skill at providing accurate diagnosis and effective treatment plans that help patients enjoy long-term recovery – and enormous relief – from their back problems.


It’s always about better, happier and healthier lives
Above everything, Nathan offers each patient a promise to do everything he possibly can to help them get back to enjoying the things they love in life – long-term and pain-free.
Nathan is a member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association and Sports Medicine Australia.


Natasha De Silva – Physiotherapist

Physiotherapist for sports and joint care
Natasha graduated from Sydney University armed with a Bachelor of Applied Science Physiotherapy and is currently completing a Masters in Sports Physiotherapy at La Trobe University.


Sports teams are some of Natasha’s biggest physio fans
As an active sports lover, Natasha understands the drive athletes have to perform at their best – and the important role physiotherapy can play to help them. From her early days of study, she immersed herself in a range of sports physio practice. This has equipped her with:

  • •  vast experience in dealing with acute injury management
  • •  an excellent understanding of how certain injuries occur on the field and ways to prevent them.

Natasha enjoys the one-to-one interaction with players, and has treated, healed and rehabilitated the bruised and battered bodies of Soccer, AFL and Rugby Union teams right across Sydney.

And from 2013-2015, she moonligthed as Head Physiotherapist of First Division Club Beecroft Rugby Union.

Helping runners get back on the road to recovery
As someone who revels in her running and training to improve her own performance, Natasha also has a keen interest in helping people overcome running-related injuries, get back into their favourite runners and out on the road – or track – doing what they love most.


The latest shoulder, knee and ankle treatments
Natasha’s patients are also delighted with her results treating shoulders, knees and ankles.

Along with being a natural ‘joint whisperer’, Natasha keenly attends specialist shoulder, knee and ankle courses and lectures to keep up with the world’s latest research and techniques.

When she’s not caring for clients or pounding the pavement, Natasha says her best medicine is travelling, cooking and staying active – occasionally all at once. And that sharing stories and dreams of your global adventures are always warmly welcomed.
