teamCSSM - Camberwell Sports and Spinal Medicine
Nicole always knew she wanted to work in health care.
“I was involved in competitive dancing and acrobatic gymnastics from a very young age and was injured quite often growing up. I found that I had the best outcomes when seeing an osteopath. My osteopath gave me the confidence and education I needed to help me get back into training much quicker, and improve my performance.”
“I also noticed that other family members who were suffering from a range of conditions including chronic lower back pain found amazing results from osteopaths, which really improved the quality of their life.”
An RMIT graduate with Distinction in December 2019, Nicole is also a qualified pilates instructor and has previously worked at the RMIT health clinic and Coburg and Manningham football clubs as a sports trainer.
“I love that as osteopaths, we can help our patients to overcome challenges, achieve their goals and return to the activities they love doing the most. I also love that we help our patients understand their pain through education, therefore empowering and motivating them to take the steps necessary to become healthier and happier.”
With an interest in treating athletes, Nicole enjoys helping her clients get back into training and competing post injury as well as treating the lower limb, including lower back and pelvic pain.
“I would love to learn more about injury prevention and improving sporting performance especially in dancers and gymnasts in the future, and I am also interested in learning more about pre/post-natal treatment, and how I can incorporate pilates into the rehabilitation and management of these patients.”
As part of a multidisciplinary clinic, Nicole is looking forward to developing as an osteopath. “I love that we can consult with one another to help patients achieve better outcomes and allow them to reach their goals quicker.”
On weekends, you’ll find Nicole at Inverloch where she enjoys spending time at the beach with friends and family. She loves taking pilates classes and playing tennis as well as taking her pet groodle called Bear on long walks. In the future, Nicole hopes to continue her love of travelling with a visit to South Africa.
