Our Story

In 2011, Karen Finnin had to end a three-year stint running a Private Physiotherapy Practice in East Timor. Saddened that she could no longer care for her patients, she decided that there had to be a better way to manage patients from a distance. Karen launched Online Physio, Australia’s first entirely online, publicly accessible private Physiotherapy Practice.

Online Physio has now been featured in publications such as Body and Soul, Good Health Magazine, CBS online, and Energy and Resources magazine. Through her work with Online Physio, Karen was awarded 9th place in the SMART Top 100 Readers Choice Innovations, and first place in Pitchfest, a pitching competition for leading entrepreneurs.

In 2016, Karen was invited to be a founding member of the International Society of Digital Medicine, and is on the editorial board of the Digital Medicine Journal. In 2018, Karen is part of the Telehealth Taskforce defining telehealth in Physiotherapy for the World Confederation of Physical Therapy and the International Network of Physiotherapy Regulatory Authorities.

With the ever increasing role of education in Physiotherapy, the confusing nature of health information on the Internet, and her belief that those in remote locations shouldn't miss out on quality injury management, taking Online Physio to the world has become Karen's number one passion.
