Cobie chose a career in physiotherapy so she could combine her twin passions of health and fitness with helping people in pain or disease. She has seen that physiotherapy is hugely beneficial for not just athletes, but also the 9-5 “desk jockeys” and in helping the elderly remain functionally independent.
Cobie graduated from Curtin University in 2008 and since then, has worked with a variety of clients including elite performance artists from Cirque Du Soleil in a Performance Medicine role, as well as on the ground level at amateur AFL and soccer teams in the local community. She has both hospital and private practice experience where she has sharpened her skills in post operative orthopaedics, rehabilitation of sporting injuries, and treatment of spinal and pelvic pain, along with helping post natal women with various women’s health issues. She has a keen clinical interest in the management and prevention of long standing running, gymnastics and sporting injuries, chronic spinal and shoulder pain, complex pain conditions and strength and conditioning.
Cobie has gone on to further her study, undertaking a Masters degree in Manipulative Therapy from Curtin University, as well as attending a multitude of courses on Clinical Pilates, dry needling, women’s health assessment and management.
“As physiotherapists, we get to spend a lot of time with our patients that other health professionals might not be able to. We often end up treating our clients’ partners, family, children and friends over the years, and you end up forming close relationships with them. We really get to understand their health issues from a whole person perspective, which puts us in a great position to help our clients achieve the best quality of life they can.”
Cobie is an exercise enthusiast, with long distance running being her sport of choice. She has completed three marathons and it is her personal goal to one day run the New York Marathon. She also loves to hike, cycle, snowboard, cook and travel to far flung places.
