PRINCIPAL PHYSIOTHERAPIST / DIRECTOR – GARY BROOKS
Gary graduated from the University of Queensland with a Physiotherapy degree in 1989 and an Exercise Science degree ( Major in Exercise Physiology ) in 1992.
He originally worked at the PA hospital in Brisbane and for the Defence Force at both Enoggera and Canungra before starting his own private practice on the Gold Coast in 1994. He then moved to Tamborine Mt and has been practicing here since 1997.
He believes that providers should treat people as they would like to be treated themselves and therefore, everything about Tamborine Mountain Physiotherapy adheres to the core values of Excellence, Empathy and Humour.
With over 30 years’ experience in the field of musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapy, Gary divides his time between clinical practice, and mentoring and educating the Tamborine Mt Physiotherapy team.
In his hours away from the practice, Gary enjoys triathlon and weights training as well as watching Rugby Union. As a keen sportsman himself, he understands the physical and bio-psychosocial issues people need to overcome to maintain health and fitness and return to activity after injury.
PHYSIOTHERAPIST – REBECCA TSANG
Rebecca grew up on the Gold Coast. She graduated from the University of Queensland with both a Bachelor of Science with a major in Biomedical Science, and Masters of Physiotherapy Studies. She enjoys treating a wide variety of musculoskeletal and sporting injuries as well as post-operative rehabilitation of shoulders, knees and ankles.
Rebecca’s treatment approach is always tailored to the specific individual. She uses a holistic approach in the management of chronic conditions such as low back pain, or treating acute sporting injuries, as well as preventing injury recurrences.
She has a special interest in treating low back pain and neck pain, as she understands how debilitating this can be on an individual’s quality of life. Rebecca loves to empower her clients to achieve their goals and help them to make a full recovery.
In her spare time Rebecca enjoys keeping active with recreational activities such as going to the gym and also enjoys reading and visiting local cafes for Sunday brunch.
PHYSIOTHERAPIST – SCOTT O’DRISCOLL
Scott graduated from Griffith University in 2018 with a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science and a Master’s degree in Physiotherapy.
He has always been interested in musculoskeletal physiotherapy and enjoys treating all joints and muscle groups. Additionally, he also enjoys providing advice for everyday activities and exercise.
Scott played hockey at a national level for many years and had his fair share of injuries. He has first-hand experience as a patient in a physiotherapy clinic and therefore understands the rehabilitation process from the patient’s point of view.
Scott treats his patients individually and adjusts treatments according to their needs and goals. He uses hands on manual therapy including joint mobilisations, targeted massage and stretches. He also provides exercise programs to help maximise outcomes with physiotherapy and help improve his patient’s quality of life.
In his spare time, Scott enjoys keeping active with running and gym. He follows all sports especially basketball and rugby league. He also loves travelling, birds (of the feathered variety) and food!
Scott is very excited to help members of the community achieve their goals!
