We are very excited to welcome and introduce the newest member of our family Alina Marinkovic. Alina is a very experienced and passionate Physiotherapist, qualified for over 18 years and with extensive Clinical experience across a wide range of specialised areas. These include musculoskeletal conditions, sports injuries and women’s health conditions such as incontinence rehabilitation and problems within pre & post pregnancy.
Alongside traditional Physio treatment methods, Alina is proficient in Dry Needling (intramuscular stimulation). This form of treatment is an effective and efficient technique for the treatment of muscular pain and chronic pain disorders, often caused by pressure on sensitive points in your muscles (trigger points) causing pain in seemingly unrelated parts of your body. This is called referred pain. This can be caused by repetitive motions used in jobs, hobbies or by stress-related muscle tension.
This treatment was originally developed by Dr. Chan Gunn and is extremely effective for relaxing overactive muscles, which contain trigger points.
Alina is proficient and enjoys working with people who have nerve pain, bone or joint problems and assessing children and their gross motor skills and development. She specialises and has had extensive higher education in women’s pelvic floor muscles after
gynaecological surgery, or who are experiencing incontinence and has been working at Women’s and Children’s Hospital. Using her knowledge combined with her Clinical Pilates she is able to achieve real success across a wide range of ailments and makes a
difference too many, she is a real asset to our team.
