My Passion

I am a chiropractor who is constantly developing stability, strength, mobility, flexibility, and coordination of my injured back as a result of multiple motor vehicle accidents. 

In mid-2013 on my way to work, I was exiting a roundabout when an absent-minded driver plowed the front of my car.

I sustained whiplash. For the first time in my life, I have chronic headaches.

In the search for answers, I enrolled into Masters of Research at the University of Newcastle with interests in “neck posture” and “headaches”. I soon found out neck posture and headaches are not as simple as it seems:

“Choose something common and you will find not much is known about it! And so it is with ‘Headache’!”
(Blau and McGregor, 1995)

Then in May 2015, I was heading to the University of Newcastle and found myself in another motor vehicle accident. This time I was rear-ended and sustained whiplash, lower back pain and now anxiety to driving.

Ironically, I’m a chiropractor dealing with back pain.

The excruciating back and neck pain prevented me from working for a while. The ease of simple activities in my daily life felt like they were unattainable: to sit, stand or even sleep without difficulty. I had to reduce my work hours, modify my working posture, and had a range of treatments to manage my back and neck limitations.

I experienced the benefits of constant specific movement and realised that:

“Exercise is both my addiction and my medication.”

From personal experience, I believe in the dynamism of fitness and have a passion for wellness for back rehabilitation and prehabilitation.

As a practitioner and researcher, I am constantly staying up-to-date with the latest high evidence-based literature in the areas of sport, posture, headaches, and all alike.
