Debbie Spanos

Debbie has worked as a physiotherapist in private practice for over 30 years and is passionate about helping people experiencing a multitude of musculoskeletal issues. Debbie is well known for her expertise helping patients with complex issues and enjoys dedicated referrals from Rheumatologists and Orthopaedic Surgeons. Her approach to physiotherapy is very thorough and often requires using longer Initial assessment sessions (60 mins) for more complex presentations. Debbie’s approach is very hands-on based incorporating joint mobilization as well as deep tissue work. In addition Debbie always includes rehabilitative exercises and patient education / self-help advice regarding their condition. When the patient leaves they should feel empowered and better able to aid their own recovery. Treatment is a partnership between the physiotherapist and patient, both working together towards the same outcome.

Debbie has extensive experience in:

  • Spinal pain – e.g Sciatica, Disc injury, Wry neck, radiating pain and ‘pins and needles’ in arms and legs
  • Headaches
  • Jaw (TMJ) and related issues
  • Sports injuries, e.g joint and muscle strains, rehabilitation post knee surgery/ACL repairs
  • Adolescent treatment e.g postural re-education, Patello – Femoral Syndrome, Juvenile Arthritis
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Chronic pain – e.g Arthritis, Inflammatory Disorders, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Fibromyalgia

Continuing Education: Debbie regularly attends workshops and lectures in musculoskeletal sports and spinal physiotherapy.

Debbie is a member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) Debbie is available for appointments Tuesdays, Wednesday and Fridays.
