Phoebe Henry is an experienced Chiropractor who is passionate about supporting patients from injury to performance. After completing the 5-year RMIT university chiropractic program, Phoebe undertook an extra year of study to research the impact of pelvic motion during running, earning her a 1st class Honours degree. Phoebe has also undertaken a variety of extra courses to enhance her knowledge in rehabilitation, strength & conditioning and running gait analysis. She is currently completing further study to become an Internationally Certified Sports Chiropractor and Accredited Exercise Scientist. Phoebe’s interest in Chiropractic stemmed from her experience as a gymnast enduring multiple injuries. She is now committed to educating others from all backgrounds and experience about injury reduction and injury management. Phoebe recognises the importance of patient-centred care and employs a range of treatment methods to suit individual needs. Treatment modalities may include soft tissue techniques, spinal manipulation/mobilisation, extremity joint manipulation/mobilisation, exercise prescription and various taping techniques. Phoebe’s special interests include spinal pain, conditions of the hip and knee, and how physiology can impact injury. Phoebe is particularly passionate about helping women understand the unique physiology shifts they experience from puberty to post-menopause, and how exercise habits can be altered to build greater muscle and bone strength, assist recovery, and reduce the risk of injury.
