What is your area of expertise?
We love to get people and their joints moving again. Anyone from office worker to athlete (professional or occasional) can benefit from our evidence based care. We aim to recapture lost mobility, then assist in getting the muscles activated and strong to help provide some stability. We also have specialised spinal traction tables that can assist in restoring function after patients have herniated a disc.
What areas do you specialize in or treat?
We can assess and treat pretty much any joint in the body, but our special area of interest lies in the spine, hips, jaw and shoulder joints in particular.
What led you to Elevate?
To be apart of an integrative healing centre, work closely with my colleagues to deliver the best possible outcome for my patients.
What are your core beliefs of wellness and health?
I believe that for patients to make informed decisions about the direction of their care that education is vital. The practitioners and the patients have to work towards the common goal together. We believe that movement is life, so we will do everything in our power to get our patients active and functional again.
What mistakes do clients make?
Often they don’t ask enough questions or not have an active role in their recovery. Knowing why something they do is bad can then allow them to modify their activity to take pressure off the injury. The body is a whole unit and there are many different aspects to treating a person.
What do you enjoy about your job?
I love being able to help my patients get mobile, and I really enjoy seeing their joy and happiness when they achieve goals and how it impacts peoples lives. Mostly I love getting good results!
What key health lessons do you like to impart to patients?
Don’t be shy to ask questions and challenge the practitioner to help you achieve your goals. Never stop trying to get better. Stand up and move around, and be mobile!
Tell us a little about your credentials.
I achieved my Bachelors and Masters at Macquarie university, completing Chiropractic Science and Chiropractic. I have continued my education by learning various techniques ensuring good results for my patients.
What does integrative health mean to you?
No one practitioner can do it all. I like a collaborative approach, where every practitioner treats the problem from a different point of view, with the integrated aim to get the patient even better than they ever imagined they could be.
