Jeanne Read graduated in 1977 with a diploma of Applied Science from Cumberland College of Health Sciences in Sydney. She has worked in a variety of clinical roles in both public and private health systems building up her skills in all areas of physiotherapy practice. She has travelled to Canada, working in the public system there, and also to Nepal where she worked as a Scientific Officer.
She was a member of the Army Reserve for 6 years, and travelled around Australia in 1986 as physiotherapist to the Around Australia Army Relay Team. She spent four years working as a contract physiotherapist to the Australian Defence Force in Albury/Wodonga.
In 1991 she gained a Post Grad Diploma in Science and Society from the University of New South Wales. Her studies have also included acupuncture and she has been certified in Level 2 Clinical Acupuncture by the Australian Physiotherapy Association since 2002.
She has travelled as team physiotherapist with various sporting teams including the New South Wales Claxton Shield Baseball Team, and the Under 18 New South Wales Hockey Team. She was called on to provide support for various National Sporting Teams as an official physiotherapist at the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
She has experience in university level teaching, lecturing to undergraduate physiotherapy students. She holds a level 4 Certificate in Workplace Training and Assessment, and has experience lecturing to sports trainers at TAFE institutions.
Having experience in a wide range of sports and general physiotherapy areas, Jeanne became very interested in the field of TMJ Physiotherapy about 15 years ago. This interest deepened, since moving to Brisbane with exposure to the craniomandibular work of Chilean Physiotherapist Mariano Rocobado, and more recently Kerry Read.( Despite having the same surname they are not related!)
She has studied Advanced Management of Cervicogenic Headache under the tutelage of Dean Watson and the Watson Headache Institute. This allows her to consistently provide relief from headache and migraine - often where other treatment approaches have failed. Vocal Unloading has also become an area of interest since studying with Annie Strauch in Melbourne.
She is delighted to be a member of the team at Headline Physiotherapy, where the emphasis is on delivering high quality physiotherapy care to patients with craniomandibular dysfunction, vocal issues and headache.
