Dr Elise Willcocks - Chiropractor
"I have been wanting to move to the Gold Coast with my 5 children, and when I met the team here at Surfers Paradise Chiropractic health and wellness centre I realised I had found exactly the right practice to join. having started my studies a little later in life it gave me time to make some really important decisions on not only what I wanted to do by also why.
For me the results I had received through Chiropractic care personally and then also with my children when they were babies really inspired me to be able to help people like that too. Although studying with young children was a challenge and a sacrifice - my children were always very supportive, and now my eldest daughter has finished high school and is hoping to study Chiropractic also.
Having spent the last 2 years in Canberra I was blessed to have worked along side a very experienced Chiropractor who was also a qualified naturopath. This experience really enabled me to fine tune my skills, working closely with chronic arthritis sufferers looking after not just their spinal adjustments but also their diets, supplementation, exercise and even state of mind through breathing and relaxation techniques.
Having of my own I also fully understand the desire and need to be able to make the right choice when it comes to health care for our children. This is not always an easy process, but I learnt to always look at the least invasive treatment first and then increase if required. This is why becoming a Chiropractor was so appealing to me as not only are baby and child adjustments very safe and gentle, the can stimulate incredible changes in the body, helping it move from sickness to wellness relatively quickly.
I look forward to being able to work with you and your families to keep a healthy spine and active life.
