APA Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist

Jeannie graduated from Sydney University with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy in 1992 and worked in Broken Hill for almost 2 years in a busy outpatient clinic, then returned to Sydney to work in a Sports Clinic.

Travel, love and life brought her to Adelaide where she has embraced this beautiful state. She lives in the Adelaide Hills with her family and has set her roots down there.

In 2002 she completed her Master of Manipulative (Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy) where she developed advanced skills in assessment and reasoning of muscle joint and spinal pain.

Since 2002 Jeannie has shared her time teaching at UniSA in the undergraduate and postgraduate programs. Her area of teaching is clinical education where she supervises postgraduate and undergraduate in assessing and managing clients presenting with musculoskeletal pain conditions.

Jeannie has also been part of the teaching team delivering the Science of Pain - a subject which teaches students to appreciate the complexity of pain and consideration of what it is like to have pain that does to go away, and also what might place a person at risk of chronic pain.

Currently Jeannie coordinates a course that sits within the postgraduate program at UniSA , and is part of a Professional Certificate in Pain Management .

Jeannie brings this knowledge to any presentation - whether you have just “hurt “ yourself or whether you have had pain for a long time. Her passion is to combine the knowledge of pain to spinal pain, neuropathic pain, headache , and in particular jaw pain. Her passion is to provide comprehensive assessment and set you up with knowledge and management strategies to help you with your pain - whether it is acute or chronic.

Jeannie is excited to be part of the Flex team and continue the passion for excellent care that is already integral to Flex.

Jeannie is currently working at our Norwood clinic.
