Karri wanted to be a physiotherapist ever since she could pronounce the word at 3 years of age.   After graduating from ACU with first class honours, she discovered a passion for helping people with chronic pain and is currently continuing research with ACU in this area.  Her research is not just an excuse to get on people's nerves, but investigates how pain pathway sensitivity changes in chronic pain conditions.

Karri travelled extensively throughout Australia and lived in Germany for a few years where she worked with Gunda Lambrecht, who specialises in TMJ conditions and is the rehabilitation physiotherapist for astronauts with the European Space Agency. 

However, Karri is a Queensland girl at heart and happily returned to the sunshine state where she accepted a position at the Headache, Neck & Jaw Clinic.

Karri completed training at the Watson Headache® Institute in Sydney where she, not surprisingly, learned that headaches are a real pain in the neck.

Karri understands pain impacts on all areas of life due to personal experience with migraines, headaches and TMJ dysfunction.  Hunting down and treating the actual cause of someone's pain, not just the symptoms, is the ultimate reward for Karri.

Covid-19 Update 😷

From the 17th December 2021 our clinics will require patients aged 16 years and older to present their vaccination status to admin staff upon arrival. Fully vaccinated patients will continue to be given treatment as normal. 

Unvaccinated patients will only be considered on a case-by-case basis. An unvaccinated patient is anyone that has not had the double dose of vaccination.  Management reserves the right to refuse treatment to unvaccinated patients. If treatment is granted additional measures will be required in order for you to receive treatment. This will include mask wearing in the first instance and may include the provision of a negative PCR test taken within 48 hours prior to the appointment. 

Please let us know in advance of your appointment if you are unvaccinated so we can confirm the measures required for you to attend.

We also encourage patients to limit their time in the clinic waiting room prior to their appointment, therefore if you arrive more than 10 minutes before your appointment, we ask you to wait outside the clinic (preferably in your car). This is to minimise contact time for patients and staff inside the clinic at all times.

These measures will continue to be reviewed as required. In the meantime, we are continuing with all other COVID safe measures and look forward to having you in the clinic to continue your treatment.
