CARING FOR SPINES FOR OVER 25 YEARS
Dr. Chris began treating animals within around 3 years of graduating with his 'human' chiropractic qualifications in 1992.
Firstly, it began with the occasional existing 'human' patient asking if he might have a look at a lameness issue with their dog, and before long, he had a car park full of dogs waiting to be treated at the end of a shift.
Soon after, he began treating horses also.
By the time he had completed his post-graduate studies in Animal Chiropractic at RMIT(2000) , Dr. Chris had regular time slots in his week for treating animals.
Because of his background in teaching at the University of NSW, Dr. Chris was asked to form part of the lecturing team for the course for the following 9 years. He regularly taught subjects including neurology, biomechanics, Chiropractic principles, adjusting technique, examination & assessment skills, amongst others.
Nowadays, Dr. Chris has a difficult juggling act of trying to balance his human and animal chiropractic practices, with both seeing him in high demand.
Dr. Chris has also provided chiropractic care for the South Australian Mounted Police horses, and has featured in a number of television appearances including Adelaide's A Current Affair, and 'Totally Wild’, along with magazine features.
Aside from horses, dogs and cats, on the odd occasion Dr. Chris has also found himself treating sheep, snakes, kangaroos, koalas, camels, and even a Siamang Gibbon at the Adelaide Zoo.
