Physical Travel Solutions

Yvonne Strydom is a Physiotherapist registered to practice in every state & territory of Australia.

She opened and has operated her Private Practice on the Redcliffe Peninsula near Brisbane, QLD since 1983.

In 1995 she started travelling to the US up to 12 times / year for additional small workshop training, in Seattle & Sacramento with the Ursa Foundation.

In the process of 185+ return trips to the US – that’s over 370 trans Pacific crossings! – plus another 28+ to Africa & Europe, including every StarMegaDo, she learned a few things.

And realised that as well as Australia being a really really long way from everywhere, in addition to the workshops she signed up for, she was also incidentally and steadily acquiring a whole huge new area of expertise!!

As a result, Yvonne has now added *Travel Physiotherapist* to her portfolio of skills. To her knowledge, she coined the term and is 1st in the World to use this title!

Since 2009 she has been speaking about her health management & injury prevention strategies for travellers “Physical Travel Solutions” “Move Well, Travel Better” at various forums and corporate events nationally and internationally, including to many frequent flyers in galleys at 10,000m!

She is a former Director at URSA Educational institute for Manual Therapy, & Kinections Treatment Centre and Educational Institute in Sacramento CA USA.

Since 2014 she has been on faculty with The Flight Doc, where she has spoken about all things miles & points & status, as well as her Physical Travel Solutions to Move Well, Travel Better.

Meanwhile, she lives near Brisbane Queensland Australia, consults from her Private Clinic there, and continues to travel widely to gain further insights into the needs of her traveller patients. It’s for the research, of course. And the miles! At one time she was 1K with UA, EXP with AA, and the equivalent of triple each of these to gain Platinum One with Qantas.

When she is free, she arranges social events so she can catch up with Flying Friends.
