Kelly was originally inspired to become a Sports Chiropractor after constant netball injuries in her teens. She saw a Chiropractor who was the only doctor to give her relief, putting her back together time after time (it was later that she realised maintenance care can prevent all that!). After these great personal experiences she decided this was the career for her and hasn’t wavered since.
Kelly spent the first few years of her career involved in many sporting teams and treated the players of the First Grade Cronulla Sharks NRL team. Since being pregnant and having a child of her own she has since developed a passion for family wellness, especially pregnancy and paediatric care (kids care). She has up-skilled and certified in Pregnancy Care with the latest low force techniques – to allow all pregnant women a pain free pregnancy and a beautiful birth.
Kelly’s special focus is Pregnancy Care- “I enjoy the extra challenge of the ever changing pregnant body and the hormonal and structural changes it brings with it. I want to see pregnant women get more comfortable as their pregnancy progresses not less comfortable like people tend to accept as ‘normal’ ”. Kelly works closely with other local health professionals such as lactation consultants, pilates & yoga studios, acupuncturists, personal trainers, midwives etc so clients get the best all round care.
Kelly uses a wide variety of techniques including Diversified, Thompson Drop, Flexion Distraction, Activator, Soft tissue therapies including Active Release Technique (ART) & Kinesio-Taping. And enjoys the post graduate training in Musculoskeletal Acupuncture, orthotic prescription, nutrition advice, Logan Basic Technique, Webster technique & spinning babies certification for pregnancy and the low force Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT) including pelvic blocking and cranial work.
Kelly, her husband Dave & son Hugo live in South Coogee and when not working enjoy playing, running and exploring the great outdoors.
