At Health Systems Go we hold a strong core belief that many issues within the body are compensation injuries which have originated elsewhere in our musculoskeletal chain. Creating weakness and overload at the site of your complaint.
It is our mission to address this; guiding the body and mind back to optimal function.
Bachelor of Applied Science and Master of Podiatric Practice (La Trobe University & Glasgow Caledonian University, Scotland)
Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy (Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology)
Kirstin first entered the health industry as a Myotherapist in 2012. Wanting to learn more about the impact foot function had on the rest of the body, she went on to study Podiatry at LTU and GCU. During her career, Kirstin has worked at the World Cycling Championships, Australian Institute of Sport and AFL Draft Combine.
Outside of Podiatry and Myotherapy, Kirstin is trained in Prolotherapy, Perineural Injection Therapy, Dry Needling, GRIP Approach and Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilisation*.
"My true passion lies with educating patients about the root cause of their pain. I see a lot of inefficient muscle activation & timing due to poor neural stimulus from the brain down to the lower limb, restrictive footwear, pelvic instability and limb length discrepancies. This is why I assess so thoroughly, to pick up on the contributing factors that inhibit patients' recovery".
As a novice Triathlete and outdoor adventurer, Kirstin is passionate to the core about health and movement.
