Shakira Direen

Shakira graduated with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy from Griffith University with distinction. She is a vibrant and dedicated physiotherapist who will work with you to develop a therapy plan which suits your lifestyle and goals.

Shakira enjoys treating a variety of conditions and has an interest in headaches, neck pain, women’s health and stroke and neurological rehabilitation. Her early career in a hospital setting provided her with invaluable experience in cardiac, respiratory, and neurological care, further enhancing her ability to address diverse patient needs.

Drawing from her experience as an AFL sports trainer and her background in competitive dance, touch football, netball, and horse riding, Shakira appreciates the demands and challenges athletes face. Shakira takes a hands-on approach to therapy, employing techniques such as soft tissue massage, cupping, and joint mobilisations to tailor treatment plans for optimal results. Her background in instructing fitness, Pilates, and Barre classes enhances her approach to rehabilitation and injury prevention.

When she’s not in the clinic, Shakira enjoys bouldering, going to the gym, surfing and walking her dog.
