Senior Associate Physiotherapist / Vestibular Expert
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.
