With a history of Chronic lower back problems; I was driven to go back to high school as a mature aged student with the intention of studying Chiropractic. I studied Chiropractic in Melbourne at RMIT - The Gonstead System of Chiropractic is encouraged to all students though only a few leave university perusing a practice pure to the Gonstead system. I had a moment of realisation I must become a Gonstead Chiropractor way back when I met Dr Joshua Free at Gonstead Club held on campus every Wednesday night. Dr Josh explained to me the importance of being specific and why a Gonstead Chiropractor takes the time to figure out how to get their patient to actually heal and get better. When Dr Josh explained what my problem was and how he was going to go about correcting my problem; the whole process of Gonstead just made sense; after the adjustment to my lower back it was the first time I noticed that significant change I was seeking. At this time I realised what path I had to take and that was to study the Gonstead System of Chiropractic.
Since learning from Dr Josh and other Diplomates and Fellows of the Gonstead Chiropractic Society of Australia, I have been in full time Chiropractic practice under the guidance of Gonstead Diplomate Dr Scott Campbell-Lloyd in my native state of Western Australia; during this time I undertook and completed a 2 year post graduate Diplomate training program in Chiropractic Paediatrics. Every year I attend Gonstead Seminars and other educational seminars to remain sharp with knowledge and always in the pursuit of improving as a Chiropractor. After 3 years honing my skills in WA, my wife Shelley and I decided it was time to pursue our dreams of opening a country practice in Queensland.
I am a passionate advocate of Gonstead Chiropractic, as a Gonstead Chiropractor I strive to deliver the best care to my patients, helping you achieve your true health potential and enabling you to be the best you can be.
