DR NIKOLE GRBIN
B.Sci.(Clin.Sci), M.H.Sci(Osteo), Member Osteopathy Australia
Dr Nikole Grbin has been a registered practising osteopath within Australia since graduating in 2002 after completing a Masters of Health Science at Victoria University of Technology. She is experienced in treating numerous conditions and has an interest in treating expectant mothers, babies and children. Nikole has practiced as an Osteopath in both Melbourne and Adelaide.
It is Nikole’s belief that providing individual-centred osteopathic treatment is important as each person’s body is different and requires a tailored approach for pain relief, as well as regaining mobility, flexibility and optimal health. She is currently undertaking studies in Western Herbal Medicine and Nutritional Medicine, to further her passion for offering comprehensive holistic advice to clients on best managing acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries and functional health conditions.
Her involvement in the tertiary sector at Victoria University from 1997 involved research as well as facilitating the education and training of numerous student osteopaths. In particular, she has previously been a clinical supervisor at Victoria University of Technology’s Osteopathic Medicine Clinic, as well as a lecturer and tutor in osteopathic techniques, anatomy and diagnostic imaging. Currently Nikole is involved in lecturing Myotherapy students at Endeavour College of Natural Medicine in Adelaide.
A previous board director of Osteopathy Australia, the peak professional association for osteopaths, Nikole held this position between 2010 and 2012. From 2012, Nikole was ministerially appointed to the Osteopathy Board of Australia and subsequently appointed to the position of Chair in 2014, a role which she currently still holds. Nikole currently resides and practices in Adelaide, South Australia with her two very fluffy and much loved Siberian Huskies.
