2 Minutes With Jane Lau

University of Melbourne grad, Jane Lau is Collins Place Physio’s tri-lingual ergonomics enthusiast. A member of the team since 2013, she is skilled in postural analysis and highly adept at resolving desk job injuries. Yes, there’s such a thing!

Why did you get into physiotherapy?

I wanted to work in the health industry and specifically wanted to have more involvement with people holistically, educationally and more long term. I believe Physiotherapy gives me a good opportunity to do that.

What’s your area of Specialty?

I enjoy working through all injuries, but as of late, I’ve developed more interest in postural related/desk job injuries. So, that’s lots of necks, backs, forearms, shoulders.

What have been some of the highlights of your physio career?

Every day I get to help someone function better, feel better and reach their functional goals – that’s a highlight in itself.

What do you love about the profession?

I love being able to meet different people and being a part of their journey as a whole person, not just their injury.

Why is good posture so important?

When you’re not putting unnecessary stress on your body, you function more efficiently and that makes you feel good about yourself physically, mentally and emotionally.

And your number one tip for improving posture?

Keep moving.

What would you be doing if you weren’t a physio?

Running a business/working in corporate leadership roles and investing my resources into social issues I’m passionate about. Or I’d probably be doing something food/travel related on the side.

What Is The One Piece Of Advice You Wish Patients Would Listen To?

You gotta help yourself too. Do your exercises, listen to your body and be patient!

What do you do in your spare time?

Volunteer at church, eat, drink, cook, exercise, explore, travel.

What’s your secret talent?

I speak three languages + one dialect, and I can probably still hit a decent drive on the golf course.

Who’s your footy team?

Roger Federer?

Are you escaping the cold this winter with a holiday?

Nope. I’m staying put, cooking more, eating more junk, exercising less, but thoroughly enjoying the cold.
