Sarah Warby is a shoulder physiotherapist with the Melbourne Shoulder Group. The Melbourne Shoulder Group specialises in the assessment and treatment of shoulder conditions and includes Lyn Watson, Simon Balster, Ross Lenssen , Kat Davis, Daniel Vernon and Tania Pizzari. Sarah has a keen interest in treating all types of shoulder injuries, but especially rehabilitation for shoulder instability.

Sarah’s PhD investigated the effect of two different rehabilitation programs for patients with multidirectional instability of the shoulder (MDI). This research is a world first and found that a scapular specific and overhead rehabilitation program ( The Watson MDI Program) was significantly better than the standard rehabilitation for MDI in the literature. This research won the ASICS sports medal at the 2016 Sports Medicine Australia conference.

Sarah also tutors clinical skills and anatomy at La Trobe University, Bundoora.

Sarah plans to continue her clinical work and research work in the area of shoulder rehabilitation with the Melbourne Shoulder Group.
