Our Chiropractors

Dr Dannielle Medhurst – Director/Chiropractor

DC BSc Hons
Glamorgan University (UK)

Dannielle obtained her degree in 2005 from the WIOC in Wales, UK. She has also completed multiple tertiary qualifications including dry needling and is currently completing her ICCSP qualification to be to be an Internationally Certified Chiropractic Sport Science Practitioner. This will allow her to work at events such as the Olympics, World Games and Commonwealth Games amongst others.

After graduation, Dannielle moved to Oman in the Middle East and opened its first ever mixer chiropractic clinic. Her primary goal was to offer a health care solution to those with no alternative. In 2011, a new challenge brought Dannielle to the Redlands. Dannielle has had a varied upbringing completing her studies in the UK and living abroad in Brunei and Oman.

Her philosophy for care is to ‘treat others how I would like to be treated and find what treatment best suits the complaint and individual’ therefore utilising a mixer style of care. She believes in the importance of crisis pain management, but more importantly maintenance care to improve quality of life via a holistic, non pharmaceutical approach. Although Dannielle has a keen interest in sports injuries her care can be styled to help any individual. Her aim is to help everyone function at their best.

Outside of clinic, Dannielle’s interests include camping, being outdoors and spending time with her two Dachsunds.

A word from Dannielle

“On a personal note. Over the years I too have suffered injuries. Those of a congenital and sporting nature but the worst was falling off a 10 meter cliff in 2010 and suffering ten+ spinal fractures, a few ribs, a dislocated jaw, two open head wounds and significant concussion. I lost my memory for a period and was on months off bed rest and rehabilitation. All this was after becoming a chiropractor! Although I recovered well I am now in the stages of early degenerative onset which has its own set of challenges. So yes I can totally sympathise with the physical but often emotional toll that comes when you are not living the life you want.”

A word from Tammie

“Over the years I have suffered multiple sporting injuries. This is what drove my passion to learn more about musculoskeletal conditions and appropriate management to get the best results with not only short-term but long-term goals. I understand what the emotional and physical strain of being in pain and not performing at your best can be. I enjoy finding ways to improve the bodies flexibility and range of motion which in turn enhances recovery, sports performance and injury prevention. There are many ways to help us perform at our best, recover from ailments, improve health and achieve our goals whether it be getting back in the garden or reaching new PB’s. 

I have a positive attitude and am always eager to learn new ways to live a healthy productive life. Doing so means we are able to do the things we have to do or need to do (like dressing, looking after children or going to work), things we want to do (like gardening or going to the gym) but also perform such activities without limitation or even hesitation. I am excited about what that life can bring”.

Georgia

Dr Georgia De Vries-Turner

BHSc BApSc (Chiro)
RMIT University

Georgia grew up on Phillip Island, where she was introduced to chiropractic from a young age. Throughout her childhood, Georgia participated in a range of different sports, and therefore was introduced to chiropractic care to help with injury prevention & wellness.

After finishing high school, Georgia moved to Melbourne and decided the chiropractic was a career she would like to pursue. After 5 years, and the completion of a double bachelor degree in Health Science/Applied Science (Chiropractic) Georgia decided to move to Queensland to enjoy a change in lifestyle.

Georgia has always had an interest in holistic health and wellbeing, which is part of the reason she chose to become a chiropractor. Georgia enjoys working with patients of all ages to help them maximise their health goals, offering a range of treatment modalities. Georgia has also completed further studies in paediatric care, dry needling, sacro-occipital technique and activator methods.

Outside of clinic, Georgia’s interests include cooking, being outdoors, road trips and spending time with friends and family.

A word from Georgia

Playing a lot of sport growing up, I was always interested in learning how to keep my body at its peak performance and remain injury free. By doing so I was lucky enough to remain injury free for a long time. However, I did unfortunately after some years sustain a lower back injury that left me with chronic pain, reduced function, and ability to live a ‘normal’ happy life doing the things I wanted to be doing. Although not wished for this experience allowed me to understand how injuries and chronic pain can affect each and everyone of us not just physically but also emotionally. Discomfort, pain, and lack of function can not only be physically debilitating but emotionally too, then there’s the potential of an altered lifestyle, commitments and even a reduced ability to work or care for our family. The good news is that there is a solution! For me, it was learning about and implementing both hands on care and rehabilitation including specifically tailored stretches and exercises given to me by a professional. The hands-on care and rehab together allowed me to regain function, become pain free and return to ‘life’ along with my sport. This is why now I love incorporating these elements of care in my own and patient’s treatment. Doing so allows myself and the patient to work together as a team to and achieve both short and long terms goals. Life is to be lived and we should be able to do it in the best way possible now and for years to come. I think everyone would benefit from care, whether you’re in chronic pain, or you just want to function at your best.
