Dr Nicola Stevens
B.Ex.Sc, B.Sc (Clin.Sc.), M.H.Sc (Osteopathy)
A life full of adventure, competitive sport and movement has provided Nicola with a deep understanding of the body and how it functions. She finds great satisfaction in sharing knowledge and empowering others on their own journey.
Nicola completed a Bachelor of Exercise Science and Human Movement before her Osteopath at the time encouraged her to study Osteopathy the following year. A combination of studying Exercise Science and exposure to playing football has provided Nicola with understanding of the importance of movement, injury prevention and rehabilitation and how treatment can complement performance.
Nicola’s Osteopathic practice is defined by a desire to understand and empower others.
She appreciates that no two conditions are the same in two people, and she enjoys the challenge of working with patients to find the root cause of the problem and its contributing factors.
She is a firm believer in providing patients with the tools they need to feel more in control of their pain and provide a safe platform for patients to return to function sooner.
Nicola has travelled to the UK on Clinical Exchange where she worked across many speciality clinics within the University College of Osteopathy, including, Geriatrics, Children’s, Expectant Mothers and patients with HIV.
When she’s not in the clinic, you’ll find her at Ikon park playing for Carlton Football Club in the AFLW or busy raising community awareness and all important funds as an Ambassador for Dementia Australia.
