Kaye graduated from the University of Qld in 1983 with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy. She worked in Canberra, Sydney, London, Lincoln and Redcliffe before starting her first practice in 1989.
Kaye always had an interest in how many aspects of health it took to support physical recovery from injury. This led her to investigate a much more holistic approach to Physiotherapy. During her work with amputees in Sydney, she realised that motivation led to amazing recovery in some people. This led her to investigate the psychological aspect of recovery and she went on to study Hypnotherapy, gaining a Diploma of Medical Hypnosis” in 1985. Kaye then investigated the contribution that Chinese Medicine had to offer and completed a 4 year Diploma of Acupuncture in 1990 and a Research Thesis in Acupuncture at the University of Qld in 1993, the topic being “The Effect of Acupuncture on the Sympathetic Nervous System”. Kaye is also a qualified Pilates Instructor and never stops updating her education.
Kaye commenced practice in Caboolture in 1989 and is now the Principal Physiotherapist of Caboolture Physical Therapy Centre.
Kaye has also played an active role in the Australian Physiotherapy Association since 1999 and was Chair of the Queensland Private Practitioner’s Group for several years.. Her clinical interests span many areas but she has a special interest in the multi-modality treatment of pain. Kaye enjoys seeing those clients with complex problems and finds satisfaction helping those people regain a meaningful and happy life. It is 24 years this year since Kaye Kerr started her first practice in Caboolture. She says that it is the reward in seeing how lives change when people get rid of their pain or learn how to walk again or function independently that keeps her doing what she does.
Kaye has a keen interest in sport including playing basketball, kayaking and outrigging. She enjoys life with her husband Glenn and children Jacob and Connie and Joseph.
