Neil was a Governor of Sydney College of Chiropractic for many years as well as being Vice President of the Australian Acupuncture Association. His special areas of interest are sports injuries and the treatment of children and animals! It is a common sight to see children playing and dogs patiently waiting in line for the next treatment.
In 2013 Neil graduated as an Animal Chiropractor after an intensive course in the USA. He is now an accredited member of the International Animal Chiropractors Association.
Neil’s years of involvement with numerous sporting clubs has given him a wealth of experience in sports training and injury management to keep athletes performing at their best. Whether you are a “week-end warriors”, serious sports performer or a novice doing exercise for the first time, Neil will be able to keep you on the right track.
Mitchell is the latest Chiropractor to join us at Mona Vale Chiropractic Centre. Mitchell completed his Chiropractic training at Macquarie University. Recently, Mitchell returned to uni to teach and mentor chiropractic students at the chiropractic student clinics as an associate supervisor. Mitchell initially started working with us as a locum while staff members were away. He fitted in perfectly and is now working permanently with us.Mitchell focuses on Chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue techniques, dry needling and specific exercise rehabilitation. He is a firm believer in empowering his patients to take an active role in their own treatment, through exercises and self-mobilisations at home, gym or even the work place. Mitchell has a strong sporting background and is a keen rugby union player. It just as well that Mitchell is very active as his young son Oliver, keeps Mitchell very busy and at times Mitchell finds it hard to keep up with him.
