Georgina graduated from Victoria University (Melb), Osteopathic Degree in 2000. Since then she has been involved in lecturing at the same course she graduated from, as well as previously running a successful Osteopathic practice in Brunswick, before moving permanently to Anglesea. Georgina has also completed a 2 year Graduate Diploma in Animal Chiropractic, as well as a Certificate IV in tertiary teaching and is qualified in dry needling treatments.
Georgina previously played hockey at State League 1 level for 10 years, she has been the treating practitioner for Victorian underage Hockey teams at the national Championships. As a junior Georgina competed for Anglesea at the Australian Surf Life Saving Championships. She now plays hockey for the Torquay Tornadoes Hockey Club.
Georgina performs manipulative treatment, particularly in the treatment of headaches, sports injuries, treating childhood complaints and the treatment of small animals (cats and dogs).
Georgina has a strong interest in the preventative model. Her SOZO machine allows me to detect subclinical lymphoedema or even slight fluid changes. People at risk to develop lymphoedema are those who have had lymph node removal or have had radiation therapy. There are other reasons for lymphoedema including congenital conditions and trauma.
She treats lymphoedema with MLD (Manual lymph drainage), prescribes and measures for garments, use kinesio taping, exercise prescription and use laser therapy.
Gerogina has a special interest also in post surgical and treatment care. She can see people throughout their journey, or at any point- whether it be prior to chemo, during chemo, after radiotherapy etc. Each treatment phase brings its challenges, but Georgina can help with creating overall physical goals and help her patients get back into what they want to do as they get used to life after cancer and how it has changed them (sometimes this is for the better!!!).
With the use of laser and taping, rehab exercises and Osteopathic Manual Treatment, Georgina can focus on areas and compensatory patterns that exist, and this includes work on wounds and scars.
Her motto is that sometimes good can come out of the worst situations, and she feels the cancer journey for those who manage to put it in the past can help to create an even better version of themselves, and she hope she may assist others in achieving their goals.
