Natania Huff

B App Sc (Physio)


WS+EMC since: April 2021

Since graduation, Natania has sought opportunities to expand her skills and knowledge in inpatient hospital physiotherapy care. This has resulted in her working in public and private hospitals within South Australia, England, Scotland and Ireland and developing new senior roles in Rheumatology, Orthopaedics, Rehabilitation, Clinical Education and Hydrotherapy services.

Natania is delighted to be able to utilise her experience and enthusiasm in the inpatient Orthopaedic and Hydrotherapy services at WS+EMC. She is committed to ensuring her patients are provided individualised therapy programs that work towards meaningful goals, to encourage and equip them with confidence in their future. In the hydrotherapy pool, she can utilise the benefits of immersion for comfortable early movement and follow through to the challenge of adding turbulence and pool equipment to progress the later stages of recovery.

Personally, Natania grew up in a family with strong connections to sport participation and teamwork. Alongside netball in her childhood, she played tennis for many years and sought (pre COVID19) travel plans to attend major sporting events all over the world. Equally, Natania seeks to find the life passions of her clients and how this can motivate them to engage with their therapy for the best possible outcome.
