She has a Bachelor of Applied Science in Osteopathy and studied at RMIT in Melbourne. Deborah is one of the long standing Osteopathic practitioners, practicing on the Gold Coast since 1994. Over the years, she has undertaken various training to have developed a well rounded approach to treatment and patient care. She has undertaken training in core stability work, visceral technique, pregnancy and tendon rehabilitation/sporting injuries. She continues to undertake courses developing her skills and techniques and updating on current evidence based approaches to common pain conditions. Encompassing all this to help support her Osteopathic treatment approach when working with various pain conditions.
Through this training and her experience, she wants to not only treat patients to relieve pain, but to educate patients in their own self management and ultimately educate people to understand their body more, knowledge is power.
The treatment that Deborah uses varies from patient to patient. She utilises a number of Osteopathic treatment approaches, depending on the patient and the condition. The treatment ranges from stretching and massage for the muscles and soft tissue, as well as mobilisation of specific joints. She often incorporates more subtle approaches that work on the delicate, deeper tissues of the body when indicated.
Deborah enjoys an active lifestyle which involves running and in the last year, has begun open water swimming in our beautiful southern Gold Coast beaches and waterways.
She is also currently a Clinical educator in the Osteopathic program at Southern Cross University, utalising her many years of experience in mentoring and guiding the Osteopaths of tomorrow.
