PERTH UPPER LIMB
CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE
PULCE is home to Perth’s Upper Limb Rehabilitation experts.
PULCE aims to provide comprehensive assessment, diagnosis and management for upper limb conditions
We pride ourselves on delivering holistic, person-centred care
PULCE is the initiative of leading Australian physiotherapists Dr Alison Thorpe, Specialist Sports Physiotherapist (as awarded by the Australian College of Physiotherapists 2009) and Dr Sonia Ranelli, Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist
Working closely with medical specialists (surgeons, sport and exercise medicine physicians, rheumatologists, pain specialists, general practitioners), allied healthcare providers (other physiotherapists, occupational therapists, exercise physiologists and massage therapists) and insurers, the PULCE team provide expert advice and care for people with a range of upper limb conditions. They refer onto other members of the healthcare team when required.
We provide evidence-based care and engage you in making decisions for your management. We empower you to self-manage your upper limb problem and prescribe a rehabilitation program for you that you can undertake at home, in your own gym or under the supervision of our team.
We conduct professional development and education sessions to medical and allied health colleagues and present workshops on clinically relevant and evidence-based knowledge and skills in the management of upper limb musculoskeletal pain and disorders.
