Deb Akindola is the newest member of our team. She studied at the University of Melbourne, initially completing a Bachelor of Science and an honours year investigating the effects of malaria in pregnant women. Following this, Deb completed a Doctor of Physiotherapy which provided exposure to patients in the hospital and community setting. She has since worked in private practices in Coburg and Thomastown and has experience in treating a range of musculoskeletal and sports injuries.
Deb uses a combination of manual therapy, education and exercise to help her patients to achieve their goals, whether that involves returning to work or sport. Her special areas of interest include headaches, neck pain, low back pain and knee pain. In addition Deb is interested in women's health and hopes to expand her knowledge in this area so that she can assist women with incontinence as well as pre and post-natal musculoskeletal conditions. In her spare time, Deb enjoys eating her way around Melbourne and spending time with family and friends. She also enjoys keeping active; having previously played social basketball, Deb now keeps fit by going to the gym and jogging.
