Polly Dhar

Polly always wanted to be a physiotherapist after suffering a serious trampolining injury early in life. This injury fed Polly's interest in injury prevention and rehabilitation.

Polly qualified in the UK from King’s College London in 2002. After initially working in Nepal, she completed her rotation in London where Polly specialised in neurological rehabilitation.

Polly later moved to Scotland where she adapted her neurological rehabilitation experience to work in elite sport rehabilitation working with both Olympic and Commonwealth athletes at the SportsScotland institute of sport where Polly was a contracted physiotherapist.

Polly also worked at the Scottish Football association. Here she was involved in developing and monitoring injury prevention screenings for gymnastic, curling and football. Polly also traveled extensively with both Great Britain and Scottish teams for European and world championships. 

Polly worked as a physiotherapist at London Olympics in 2012 and the Commonwealth Games in 2014.

Now a Melbourne local Polly has worked for Australia Triathlon, Gymnastics Australia, Football Federation Australian and most recently Cirque du Soleil.

Here Polly developed a specific injury prevention screening and individualised programs for triathlon and women’s football. Going on to develop a pre activation program and daily monitoring for the Melbourne Victory W-league team, as well as her own bike screening which focuses on individual movement patterning and activation.   

Polly thoroughly enjoys individual injury prevention, rehabilitation and movement patterning but most of all enjoys seeing a patient's injury reduce and improve at any level of participation.
