Bio
Breanne Kunstler is a physiotherapist in Victoria, Australia. She is passionate about increasing the number of people participating in physical activity worldwide. Breanne recently submitted her PhD in physical activity promotion by physiotherapists at Federation University Australia as a member of the Australian Centre for Research into Injury in Sport and its Prevention (ACRISP) research centre. Breanne’s PhD involved reporting the techniques Australian physiotherapists use when promoting physical activity. In addition to this, she also identified the factors associated with physical activity promotion by physiotherapists. This work has seen her identify several barriers and facilitators to physical activity promotion in physiotherapy, and devise strategies to overcome those barriers. Breanne also co-convenes a group called Physiotherapists for Physical Activity (P4PA), which includes Australian physiotherapists and researchers advocating for physiotherapists to be the first choice for physical activity promotion.
