Lael Kassem

Sports Physiotherapist


Lael is a physiotherapist, with a passion in working with sporting populations. Lael’s experience within Strength and conditioning both as an athlete and coach gives her the insight into the important role physio’s have in an athlete’s career. Lael has a keen interest in numerous sports, specifically AFL where she currently plays in the Sydney competition.

As a physio my philosophy is about treating the whole body, identifying faulty movement patterns, and creating optimal biomechanics through the entire kinetic chain. Movement is medicine and I believe optimal range of motion and biomechanics are the fundamental building blocks for all athletes.

Lael has also completed her PhD looking into ‘Assessing perceptual-cognitive and decision-making skill for the predication of talent in Australian Rules Football’
