Dr. Lyndsay Spencer graduated as an Osteopath in 2009, she then worked in two busy clinics in Tasmania where she grew up. Fed up with the Tassie weather, her and her family moved to the Sunshine Coast in 2016.
Lyndsay was a dancer from the age of five and has always loved movement and the human body. After seeking osteopathic treatment for an injury at 14 years old, she knew she wanted to be an Osteopath. Her love of movement led her to Pilates and in 2016 Lyndsay became a Certified Practitioner of Pilates for Rehab through Polestar Pilates.
Lyndsay is passionate about combining her knowledge in Osteo and Pilates to find the root cause of injuries or pain and to utilise the benefit of Pilates for rehabilitation.
Lyndsay specialises in treating women and children. Her passion is in treating and managing lumbar/pelvic instability, particularly related to pregnancy and the postpartum period, after experiencing pelvic instability herself in her pregnancies.
