Geoff is a Director and Physiotherapist practicing in both our Traralgon and Moe Clinics.
Geoff graduated in 1984 and commenced work as a physiotherapist at Gippsland Base Hospital in Sale working for 2 years before travelling with Rob for 4 months around Europe.
After this break Geoff and Rob were involved in establishing the existing business, Latrobe Valley Physiotherapy and Sports Medicine Clinic, 31 years ago.
In the time Geoff has worked in the Latrobe Valley he has enjoyed working with various sporting clubs and organisations. These include:
Geoff enjoys the challenge of finding what factors cause and why conditions occur, and then working with the client to achieve the best possible functional outcome for home, work or sporting pursuits. Central to this is the understanding of what are the key reasons for the client’s present condition and how best this is tackled either through direct treatment, referral to other medical specialist, advice and treatment and how the client can best help with either exercise or modified activity.
Geoff has actively pursued further physiotherapy skills to compliment his original training.
After graduating in 2008, Claire has gone above and beyond to continue progressing her clinical skills and experience to provide the best possible care to all her patients.
She started at Maryvale Private Hospital as a sole physiotherapist working with mainly post operative patients. She also worked in the private practice setting which enabled her to continue their care and provide treatment through the whole post operative journey.
Claire then traveled to Canada where she completed further study to enable her to become qualified abroad and continue working as a physiotherapist. She worked in two private practices in remote Northern British Columbia, which allowed her to snowboard and rock climb on her days off.
On returning to Australia, Claire further specialised in Clinical Pilates and Women’s Health by undertaking a myriad of courses and eventually progressing to complete her Post Graduate Certificate in Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy. Claire has since had a baby boy, Arlo. She now has further empathy and personal experience to give her pregnant and post natal patients.
Claire is extremely qualified in tending to your overall physiotherapy needs and is able to take all aspects of your injury into account. Whether it be neck and back pain, sports injuries, clinical pilates, women’s health, pregnancy and post natal, Claire is the physiotherapist for you.
