BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy, MSc Sport & Exercise Medicine
Gemma qualified as a physiotherapist in Scotland in 2004. After spending a few years working in general areas of physiotherapy, amateur rugby and athletics, she moved to Dublin in 2008 to study
for her Masters in Sport and Exercise Medicine at Trinity College.
Following her graduation in she secured a job with the Scottish Rugby Union and enjoyed the experience of working with two professional rugby teams and the Scotland 1st XV national squad, before then travelling extensively on the IRB World Series 7s circuit as the lead physiotherapist to the Scotland 7s mens rugby team for several years.
She then made the decision 3 years ago to move from Scotland to sunnier climes and settled in Sydney where she has continued to work in private practice and high level sport, including NSW netball and rugby union.
Gemma has recently returned from a year living and working in northern Italy with her partner, where he was playing professional rugby and she was engaged in the role of team physiotherapist.
Gemma employs a manual 'hands-on' approach to physiotherapy treatment, offering a range of effective soft tissue techniques, dry needling and joint mobilisations. She has a depth of experience
in movement analysis and identifying problematic movement patterns, and enjoys a forward thinking approach to exercise prescription and rehabilitation. She excels in the ability to provide
sport-specific programmes, allowing you to return to full fitness as soon as possible, and effectively applies these concepts to also treating everyday musculoskeletal injuries.
