GAVIN CROUCH

I grew up in the central west of NSW. On my way home from enrolling in Engineering at NSW Uni, we dropped in to see our family Chiropractor and he asked what I had been doing, I explained about uni and he said I didn’t sound that enthusiastic about it, he was right. He invited me out to tea and explained the philosophy of Chiropractic to me. It just made so much sense, was very logical and it was something I could get excited about, the next thing I know, I am enrolling in Chiropractic College in Melbourne and the rest is history. After college I went home and practiced with my Chiropractor for 5 years, then travelled overseas for 9 months before buying my own practice for 8 years. I then took a six month locum job in 1996 for Chris in Kingaroy and haven’t left Queensland since. Then practiced in Goondiwindi/St George for 7 years before moving to Brisbane and buying into the Woolowin/Wavell Heights Practice as a partner. It is now nearly 37 years since that dinner with my Chiro when I decided to become a Chiropractor and I still wake up happy to go to work because I know I make a difference to the lives of the people I encounter each day. Thankyou for allowing me to live this life.

Chiropractic,  like  all  professions,  has  its  own  unique  terminology  and  vocabulary  …  words  that  have  specific  meaning  for  chiropractors.

[custom_font font_size=”15″ line_height=”26″ font_style=”normal” text_align=”left” font_weight=”300″ text_decoration=”none” text_shadow=”no” color=”#ffffff”]The Vertebral Subluxation
Chiropractors examine the spine for structural misalignments and musculo skeletal problems we call Vertebral Subluxations. The chiropractors role is to determine whether these vertebral subluxations are present and if they are contributing to symptoms or interfering with the patient’s spinal function.[/custom_font]
[custom_font font_size=”15″ line_height=”26″ font_style=”normal” text_align=”left” font_weight=”300″ text_decoration=”none” text_shadow=”no” color=”#ffffff”]The Adjustment
An adjustment is performed by a chiropractor to reduce the discomfort of the Vertebral Subluxation and to improve the function of the spinal segment. In our practices we use a variety of Chiropractic Techniques to perform the adjustment. There are many factors that determine which chiropractic technique is used for the patient’s presenting condition including; the age of the patient, the severity of the condition, type of condition, and the chiropractor’s skill or expertise.[/custom_font]
