Gaby has also taught and mentored many other professional Osteopaths through their careers, as well as run musculoskeletal rehabilitation courses for Allied health professionals.

Continual patient confidence, positive feedback and results, alongside ongoing referrals, all complement Gaby’s approach to personalised treatment and individualised patient care.

Gaby’s academic and continual professional development qualifications include a Bachelor of Osteopathic Science and Bachelor of Applied Science from RMIT, Clinical Educator at Victoria University, training in Trigger Point Dry Needling for Pain Management and Sports Injury, Osteopathic management of thoracic, gastrointestinal, lower back and pelvic girdle pain as well as in pregnancy, and in treating babies and children. Gaby is also a qualified Pilates Instructor having completed an Advanced Pilates Teaching Certificate through the Australian Pilates Method Association (APMA).

Gaby is passionate about treating complex and chronic cases. She works collaboratively with other specialists, and allied health practitioners in the diagnosis, treatment and best management practices for the presenting condition and complaints of her patients.

Gaby has vast experience in patient care using both “structural osteopathy” and “cranial osteopathy”, treating ALL ages from newborns to the elderly – and on a typical day in practice, she may see conditions that include, but are not limited to:

· Muscle spasm and joint pain,

· Neck pain, headaches and migraines,

· Lower back and pelvic girdle pain including acute and chronic disc bulges,

· Sciatica

· Tendonitis, Bursitis, RSI, tennis and golfers elbow,

· Hip pain

· Shoulder pain

· Postural strain

· Sports injuries

· Complex musculoskeletal complaints with associated chronic pain such as arthritis,

· Conditions associated with Pregnancy and postnatal care,

· Treatment of newborn babies and children with underlying musculoskeletal issues

This may include but not be limited to:

  • Unsettled/crying baby
  • Birth trauma from use of forceps/vontuse delivery
  • Flat head/Plagiocephaly
  • Feeding poorly
  • Constipation
  • Wry neck/Torticollis
  • Toe Walking

With a wide range of manual treatment techniques she employs, as well as movement and rehabilitation exercises, another key element to her treatments is also in empowering her patients to understand their condition and pain, and help educate them in creating optimal health for them.

This may include education in lifestyle factors such as nutrition, stress management, postural awareness, and ways to reduce pain, increase functional movements, and improve strength and stability in their systems, as well as refer to appropriate specialists as required.
