About Dr Michael Charlton, Chiropractor
Dr Michael Charlton is a third generation Chiropractor. His father has been in practice since the 1970’s – leading the way for all of his sons to become Chiropractors. Dr Charlton’s interest in Chiropractic started as a child – being adjusted just because that was what was done.
Not until he was involved in a whiplash injury – go karting that he experienced the severe headaches and neck pain that happen with whiplash. Fortunately, he was well cared for and did not suffer long. He now seeks care for a healthy spine – and athletic performance making sure his spine and nerves are working well so he has fewer aches, pains, better post work out recovery, better form and fewer injuries.
Dr Michael is very passionate Chiropractor. He has experienced phenomenal results and witnessed many lives change because of chiropractic care. He utilises many different techniques, which allows him to tailor the care for each person. He is most excited about his post graduate training in spinal corrective care via chiropractic biophysics and impulse IQ because of the life changing results he has seen in his own practice.
Dr Michael is married to his wife Jaqui, with a beautiful daughter Caitlin. If Dr Michael is not in the office, he is spending quality time with them outdoors from a bike ride, to a day on the water, or camping and 4wding.
Chiropractic Education & Training
Chiropractic education requires a five year full-time university course. The training is similar in length to that of a medical degree. However chiropractors do not prescribe medications nor perform surgery.
Chiropractic education has emphasis on biomechanics, neurology, diagnostic imaging, physiology and treatment modalities including spinal adjustments, soft tissue techniques, lifestyle advice, ergonomics advice and nutritional advice. Chiropractors are well educated.
No two spines are ever the same and that is why appropriate chiropractic techniques are chosen according to the patient’s needs and condition. We have a wide range of chiropractic techniques to offer people that are safe and effective for new born babies, the very elderly, those with brittle bones (osteoporosis), arthritis and those in severe pain.
