About Us

The Life Chiropractic centre is just what the name suggests – a practice dedicated to improving quality of life using safe, gentle and effective methods, tailored to suit the individual.


Who are we?

Life Chiropractic was launched in May 2000 by Matthew and Peta Watkinson with a focus to provide the very best chiropractic care to families in the local community. 

Some 20 years later, Life Chiropractic has expanded to a team of 8 staff, 2 Chiropractic Doctors, 2 massage therapists and a nutritionist, all with a passion for helping patients regain and maintain their health.

What is Chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care is based on the understanding that the nervous system controls all parts of the body.

Knocks, bumps and falls, prolonged poor postures, lifting, repetitive activities and other stressors can cause the bones of the spine to lose their normal alignment and movement.

This abnormal function can irritate the delicate spinal nerves that exit the spine between each bone. Chiropractors call this problem a Vertebral Subluxation or Spinal Misalignment.

Instead of using drugs or surgery, chiropractors seek to improve body function through your nervous system by making gentle adjustments to the joints of the spine.

This reduces the nerve irritation that is caused by misalignments.

A visit to Life Chiropractic Centre will determine just how well your spine is working and allows us to see if we can help.
