Virginia Brooks

Virginia graduated from the University of Canberra with a Bachelor Degree in Biomedical Science and Sports Studies in 1999. After completing her studies she began working as a personal trainer and Taekwondo coach. This led Virginia to develop an interest in sports injury and rehabilitation, and she went on to complete a Masters of Physiotherapy Studies at the University of Queensland in 2003.

Virginia has personally become an experienced athlete over the years, representing Australia three times in Taekwondo sparring and more recently in ultra-distance trail running races (50-100km). Consequently she has developed a detailed knowledge of lower back, hip and pelvic injuries, and of course, foot and running injuries.

Through her interest in pelvic pain, Virginia began treating pelvic floor dysfunction and incontinence. In 2007 she moved to Hong Kong where she worked in a private clinic that had considerable expertise in this area to develop her experience in treating pelvic floor dysfunction and incontinence.

Virginia studied pelvic floor rehabilitation at Curtin University in Perth in 2009 and after four and a half years working in Hong Kong, Virginia has returned to the Sunshine Coast to work at Kawana Sportscare Physiotherapy clinic.

Main interests:
