Who Am I?
Hi, I’m Adina and I am an enthusiastic and passionate Physiotherapist with a passion for working with people who are looking to improve their performance – at any level!
I enjoy working collaboratively with people to obtain their goals, and to assist them to reach new achievements.
I completed my degree at the University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy (Honours), and then I started working in private practice in Brisbane, and at a private hospital on weekends. I was fortunate to also work with a Brisbane football club as their physiotherapist, and additionally, taught Pilates. After leaving Brisbane I moved to Spain, where I assisted a rugby union club as their rehab coordinator.
I look forward to assisting the Gold Coast community on their sport and health journey, wherever it may lead. Priding myself on accurate assessments, and a wide range of treatment techniques to suit all individual needs, I believe I can help to eliminate pain and enable function at all levels.
