James Hayes

Principle Chiropractor

B Med. Sci, M. Chiropractor

James was exposed to the benefits of Chiropractic from a young age. Suffering from multiple shoulder and back injuries as a result of competing in swimming and soccer at a high level, he turned to Chiropractic to treat his ailments allowing him to compete at the best of his ability.

Being fascinated with human anatomy and biomechanics, he completed a Masters degree in Chiropractic so he could turn his passion into a career that provides relief to members of the community struggling with back pain, work related injuries and sports injuries.

James believes the foundation to getting the best results for his patients is taking the time to do a thorough case history and examination (functional/orthopedic/neurological) to identify exactly what structures are damaged and the mechanism of injury.

“The most effective treatment begins with an accurate diagnosis of the exact cause of the pain. Once the source of the pain is identified, I explain to you what structures are damaged, what needs to be done and how to stop the pain from returning.”

James aspires to get the best results for every patient that walks into the clinic by tailoring each treatment to their specific condition; in other words – no blanket treatments. The best treatment is one that has long-term benefits. When you come into the clinic you are most likely presenting with a painful condition.

James wants to get you feeling at your best as fast as possible, so he addresses not only the symptoms but also the cause. Once pain free James encourages each patient to implement preventative strategies in to their lifestyle, so that they can have the peace of mind of enjoying the things they love without the fear of a relapse.

The world of Chiropractic is ever changing, new breakthroughs in treatment methods are being discovered and implemented in clinical practice each year. For this reason, James is constantly keeping up with the current evidence based research by reviewing chiropractic journal articles and attending seminars frequently throughout the year.
