Jimmy Owens - Level 4 Athletics Australia Distance Coach
It is a tough job being an athletics coach and trying hard to get the training mix spot on and the obvious increased chance of injury or minor niggles that can lead to something more serious if not corrected in time by either backing offin training which most athletes just DO NOT want to do or seek help from a trusted physiotherapist. I am so fortunate to have the best in the business in Celine at GPS who will go out of her way to slot one of my runners in at short notice even if it means opening the practice early or staying back late. She then works her magic and explains in detail what she is doing and why they have arrived there in the first place! Celine has a wonderful personality, is always happy and leaves her patients feeling confident of a speedy and full recovery.
Quite simply — she is the BEST!
I cant recommend GPS Physiotherapy enough, have had personal dealings with Yvonne over last two years and she even predicted my future injuries purely from her in depth knowledge of her field and where my anatomy has failed me. She addressed my issues and have been successfully playing sports under her supervision ever since! Thanks again, and best of luck!!!
Dr Margaret Booth
I first met Celine as a Physiotherapist when I had the misfortune to have an acute lumbar disc prolapse in 2000. Her thorough treatment and rehabilitation techniques at that time enabled meto get back to practice quickly and without the need for other interventions.
Since that time I have, unfortunately, had a number of other musculoskeletal problems and there is no-one else I would go to for diagnostic and rehabilitation advice.On every occasion her skill as a physiotherapist has enabled me to recover and get back to work and life as quickly as possible. She also has a unique ability to inspire you to want to get better and fitter – so adding Pilatesto her practice is a brilliant addition, from which I and many others will benefit.
In my own practice, I have many patients who need help with pelvic floor Physiotherapy,Back Rehabilitation and Pre-Post Natal care and knowing Celine is trained in these areas, I have been very confident to refer my patients to her for this and for real-time ultrasound of their core muscles + exercise prescription. My patients have all benefited greatly from her expertise in this field and have universally given me very positive feedback about her management. I would highly recommend Celine as a women’s health physiotherapist, both for pelvic floor rehabilitation and also pregnancy related back, sacroiliac joint problems which require manual hands on Physiotherapy.
Judy McLachlan - Vice President of the Sutherland Shire Netball Association
I first met Celine over 15 years ago when she joined the SSNA as our physiotherapist and I was President of SSNA accompanying our State Age representative players, 12 – 15 years, to various carnivals and State Championships each year. Celine was also our physiotherapist for our senior State League girls teams I/II/III, treating the girls at their weekly competition games and at their State Championships as well.
During these 15 years I have been a Manager for many representative Netball teams and have always found Celine to be very dedicated to the needs of Netball players in her immediate and detailed attention, ongoing treatment and her assessment of their injuries. Celine is honest and professional in her treatment of players and has worked well into the night after a championship game to get the girls back on the court the next day. Celine is still the SSNA physiotherapist who accompanies the teams to their respective State Championships.GPS Physio also offers a sponsorship for SSNA Inc. each year.
I would highly recommend Celine for physiotherapy treatment of any sporting injury, she is very obliging and professional in her approach to each player. Celine has a thorough functional understanding of Netball injuries and their Biomechanics associated with this sport.
Bernadette Milross - Vigour Pilates, Miranda
I have known Celine Galvin for five years. We first met at the Polestar Pilates Diploma course in Sydney.
Since starting my own Pilates business, I have happily referred many of my clients to Celine for their Physiotherapy needs.
Celine expertly diagnoses movement issues. She provides detailed, professional reports which I then use to help guide movement programming, and then hopefully improve functional outcomes for my clients.
Celine has a genuine care and concern for every person. She gives all of her energy to guide patients to a positive outcome. She is approachable, friendly and has a passion for improving the quality of life of all she meets on a professional and personal level.
Celine’s passion is inspirational and my clients speak very highly of her. A healthy outlook and a great sense of humour helps to make it all so much easier for her patients.
I will continue to work with Celine and have no hesitation in recommending her for all physiotherapy needs.
