Zeb Ariaratnam

Physiotherapist

Why did you become a Physiotherapist?
I initially had no idea what I wanted to do after finishing school! It came time to make a decision and becoming a physiotherapist sounded like a good idea. Luckily for me, I loved studying it at uni and have loved being a physio ever since. Now I can’t think of a better job for me!

What sort of patients do you most enjoy helping?
I love helping patients with chronic pain who are motivated to improve their health. This includes those with fibromyalgia and other complex and chronic conditions. It is so rewarding to see patients get little wins, whether it be something as simple as being able to walk up and down stairs again, or being able to travel and go on hikes overseas.

In particular I love treating hip and knee pain, it can be so limiting and it is great to see people get stronger and moving again after an injury.

Interesting things you have done in your career?
I’ve done lots of mentoring and teaching of new graduate physios. It is something I am really passionate about and I love being able to help others in the profession. It is so rewarding and I’ve found that you can learn so much from others too, no matter how experienced you are!

What do you do to keep fit?
I love playing indoor soccer on weekends and going to the gym! I also go through phases of being motivated to get out for a run, and other times when I’m not a fan. I still do it anyway because I know it’s good for me!

Greatest sporting achievement?
Probably when my indoor soccer team won a game. That might not seem like much, but given we don’t win very often, getting a win feels amazing!

If you could jump on a plane and visit one city, which would it be?
Florence, Italy. I went in 2019 and it was such a lovely place with lovely people. The food was also amazing!

Favourite thing to do outside of work?
I love playing sport and keeping active. I also love watching the AFL, but only when Essendon are winning! When I have time to myself I also love playing piano to relax.

Where did you grow up?
Born and raised in Melbourne! Grew up in Mitcham.

What is your food weakness?
Pasta is most definitely my food weakness and also my go to menu item! While I don’t eat a lot of sweet stuff, I am a sucker for white chocolate. Some say it isn’t real chocolate but you can’t deny it tastes amazing!

In particular I love treating hip and knee pain, it can be so limiting and it is great to see people get stronger and moving again after an injury.

Mehar was fabulous! Not only was she warm, welcoming and funny, but professional and thorough.From the moment I walked in I felt well supported. She was able to identify what was going on, factoring in older ailments, and provide me with a treatment plan and options.Her focus was on sustainable changes and support moving forward, and I had a written plan and clear explanations and clarifications on everything. I never felt like she was encouraging me to need to come back unnecessarily.It took a few visits, and each time was met with the same warmth and professionalism. I got consistent progress and feel so much better now, even though it's a few months on from when I last saw her.It's very clear she is wonderful at what she does, thinks about the whole person and I would definitely recommend her to others considering needing podiatry support.

I've been coming here exclusively since my first consultation. I've had constant shoulder and arm pain from my line of work; the exercises my physio, Carina provided are easy to remember, not time consuming and super effective!Bonus: the space feels super clean and calming - highly recommend coming here

I had a great experience here. The gym was well equipped and the atmosphere of the clinic was amazing. I had Carina, who was very knowledgeable about my injury and helped construct a great solution plan! Her manner was beautiful and she had great energy. Definitely recommend!

I’ve been seeing Talia for a few weeks now for treatment on my shoulder bursitis. From day 1 she was great! She explained everything about my condition to me and what she wanted to do which helped me visualise my own recovery. Could not recommend her enough.
