ABOUT WILKINSON CHIROPRACTIC

Dr Grant Wilkinson D.C, B.Sc, M.Sc is the principal practitioner at Wilkinson Chiropractic. Grant initially studied a Bachelor of Medical Science whilst simultaneously completing his undergraduate chiropractic degree at Macquarie University. Grant is registered as a Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C) with the Chiropractic Board of Australia and Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and has almost 25yrs experience working in his own clinic as well as in Queensland, Tasmania and regional New South Wales.

Grant is a former professional athlete whose career was cut short due to a shoulder injury and subsequent unsuccessful surgery.  He has a keen interest in sporting injuries and is still heavily involved in surf life saving and oztag competitions as a competitor, a coach and as a treating practitioner.

Professionally, Wilkinson Chiropractic has a very diverse range of patients who attend the clinic ranging from the usual spinal pain syndromes you associate with chiropractic care right through to sports and other injuries to knees, shoulders, ankles, etc as well as patients with complaints such as migraines, frozen shoulder and plantar fasciitis to name just a few.

Dr Wilkinson uses a wide array of treatment modalities which include not just spinal adjustments but also massage, active and passive soft tissue releases, musculoskeletal acupuncture, dry needling, ultrasound as well as stretching and exercise programs, postural and ergonomic advice.

The clinic moto is along the lines of the Gonstead Technique of Chiropractic mantra: Find It, Accept It, Fix It, Leave it Alone.  This means that often the underlying source of a complaint or problem may not necessarily be where the patient is feeling it but once treatment has begun it is essential that patients be given time for the body to adapt and respond between treatments. 

Find It:

Find the source of the problem, not just where the symptoms are present

Accept it:

Accept where you find it.  Sometimes the cause of the problem is not where the patient is feeling the most pain (i.e. sciatica)

Fix it:

Fix the problem to the best of your ability and recognize that some problems require surgical or other intervention.

Leave it Alone:

If a patient doesn’t require treatment then don’t give it to them.  Do not sign them up to a long term treatment plan that they do not need.  Be honest!
