Growing up in a family including specialist surgeons, radiographers and medical intervention for family members, it seemed unlikely that I would emerge a Chiropractor, focussing on the body being a self-healing, self regulating system.
My experience with Chiropractic began as a mistake. For years I had suffered with constipation. As a teenager I was examined by 3 medical doctors including a gastroenterologist. I was prescribed scheduled medication and continually reminded that due to a history of bowel cancer in my family, my symptoms are "normal". I was told that the continual bleeding in my digestive tract was not yet a cause for concern. So although it bothered me, there was no solution offered.
A friend of mine, studying chiropractic adjusted me, claiming that my feelings of lethargy and fatigue may be helped through chiropractic. This seemed unreasonable. I had not heard of it before! He proved his theory of removing the nerve interference correct and from that day forth I began to receive regular chiropractic adjustments. Without relating the two at the time, my digestive problems slowly disappeared without the use of drugs or medication.
After 6 years of chiropractic study as a double science degree in university, 2 years of paramedic service and my continuing education in chiropractic pediatrics (approx. 10 qualified in Australia currently), my purpose is to educate and adjust as many families as possible so that they too can share in the benefits of true health through natural wellness chiropractic care.

The nervous system controls every cell in your body. Nerve impulses flow from the brain, down the spinal cord and to every organ and tissue.
Impulses sent back to the brain confirm that the body is working as it should. The moving bones of the spine can interfere with this exchange. Choked or irritated resulting in SUBLUXATION.
Without proper nervous system control, ill health results.
Chiropractic care helps restore the integrity of the nervous system, which has helped people of all ages, with a variety of health problems without drugs or surgery, for over 100 years.Who Can Chiropractic Help:Chiropractic research on HIV positive patients revealed that those who received chiropractic care showed a 48% increase in CD4 immune system blood cells compared to those who did not receive chiropractic care. - Doctors: Selano, Pfleger, Peeley, Grostic.Chronic Fatigue suffers can increase their immune system blood cells.Chiropractic can be helpful during all stages of pregnancy where hormonal changes, the laxity of connective ligaments and shifting weight bearing structures, may cause pregnant women to experience low back pain. As the centre of gravity changes, so does the stress to the spine, chiropractic helps normalise the nerve system function. Special precautions and modifications to adjusting techniques are made to each stage of your pregnancy.The birth process is potentially traumatic and can stress a still developing spine. During the pushing stages of labour, the spine, particularly the neck may be pushed down the birth canal. As the baby is compressed, the small bones in the neck may be pushed out of natural alignment and cause nerve interference. This neurological disturbance is called a vertebral subluxation. Babies born by caesarean or forceps have a high chance of subluxation of the spine and may result in symptoms such as colic, allergies, asthma, eczema, ADD, poor appetite and more.Chiropractors find that infantile colic may be associated with poor spinal function (Subluxations), arising from physical stresses to the infant's spine during birth, or inappropriate handling during the early weeks of life. Modern obstetric practices, such as birthing the babies with the mother lying on her back, the use of forceps, suction, inductions and epidurals may subject t he infant to significant trauma. Such stresses may lead to subluxations in the infant causing nerve interference. This nerve interference may upset the function of the gastrointestinal system resulting in pain and colic. Correction of spinal stress and the relief of nerve interference may explain the positive effect chiropractors have on infantile colic. Wellness care, for a better quality of life. Everyone can benefit from chiropractic care as it restores the natural balance to the body.
Your Nervous System
Imagine your nervous system is a garden hose and is twisted, kinked or bent, how does this effect the water flow, it slows it down, making it harder to do the job at hand. The same thing happens to your nervous system. If you have subluxations (kinks/bends/misalignment) in your spine that put pressure on your nervous system, then your nervous system may not be functioning to it's full potential. Depending on where the Subluxation occurs, you may have increased problems in that area. Subluxations happen every day with everyday movement whether it is sitting at a computer, lifting or exercising it's a natural occurrence. You may not feel these movements or any pain but you may be noticing the effects under the surface. Check the chart below to see which organs are affected by which part of the spine.
