Brianna graduated from James Cook University in 2015 with her Bachelors in Physiotherapy. Brianna has a keen interest in the rehabilitation of chronic & ongoing back, pelvis, sacroiliac and hip pain. She also loves to help her patients improve their gym & running form to optimise their overall skill & ability. Brianna has developed a wealth of knowledge over her years of practice in body and movement assessments, with a high capability of getting to the root of the problem rather than just treating the symptoms. She is a very hands-on physiotherapist with the belief that long-term successful rehabilitation comes from hands on mobilisations, muscle release work, movement re-training & patient education. Brianna is very passionate about shifting her patients belief around pain & loves to help her patients take charge of their pain/injuries in order to move & feel their absolute best.
Brianna has completed two Connect Therapy courses which has enabled her to become a very thorough, hands on & intuitive therapist. Her skill set has grown tremendously since completing these courses & is now very confident in her ability to diagnose and fix the true problem, not just the symptoms. Brianna is also a qualified Clinical Pilates Instructor & Fitness Instructor.
In her spare time, Brianna loves to travel overseas to vanishing cultures, run around Oz with her father & sisters, cook & bake with her mother, go for a dip in the ocean at Magnetic Island, walk her pups along the strand, wine and dine with her husband & share a vino or two with friends.
