Meet Your Chiropractors.
Matthew grew up in Wamuran and attended St Peters Primary and Caboolture State High. His father has been a vet and animal chiropractor in the local area for over 30 years. Since finishing high school Matt has lived, worked, studied, travelled and played around the world, based in the UK and Glasgow. He and his wife Megan live on the coast with their son Hugo, and their black labrador Cody.
Following a BSc in Neurobiology at the Universtiy of Queensland, he completed his chiropractic qualifications at RMIT University in 2005, and moved to the UK. He lived and practiced in London for 2 years, and Glasgow for 5 years. While there he completed his MSc in Paediatric Chiropractic through Bournemouth University and the Anglo European College of Chiropractic (AECC).
He was involved with the World Congress of Chiropractic Students for years for both RMIT and AECC.
As a researcher he’s published in the peer reviewed literature on the safety of adjusting children, and reviewed the evidence base around chiropractic care for children and has presented at international chiropractic conferences. He was a visiting lecturer at the Bacelona College of Chiropractic 2011-2012, teaching chiropractic care for unique populations (infants and children, through pregnancy, and the elderly). From 2012 to 2015 he taught in the Central Queensland University Chiropractic program in Mackay and Brisbane (3 year Bachelor, followed by a 6 term 2 year Masters). He is currently teaching a seminar series about Assessing and Adjusting Infants and the Pregnant Lady around Australia and New Zealand.
While in Scotland he played in the Scottish National Basketball League for the Glasgow Storm (the evidence!), though on returning to Australia he pulled on the cricket whites again where he helped the Pioneer Valley Cricket Club win their inaugural first grade premiership in 2013. He played the past threes seasons for the Brisbane Northern Suburbs District Cricket club, and now focuses on Crossfit training and surfing his 9’6″ mal regularly!
Matt enjoys helping the community he grew up in with his wide range of skills based on a firm grounding in the Caboolture way of life.
Megan Torrey – on maternity leave 2018- mid 2019
Megan has been adjusted by chiropractors since she was 12 years old. Megan chose to study chiropractic because a very sweet female chiropractor told her it was a great career – you got to help people and it’s pretty flexible if you want to have kids!
She completed my Bachelor of Chiropractic Science at Macquarie University and following that her Masters of Chiropractic Science at Macquarie University. During this time she went to many external technique seminars, including Sacro-Occipital Technique and Neuro-Impulse Protocol Technique, the Inspiral Seminars (adjusting children and babies).
All of that led her to more studies and seminars in techniques, such as Advanced Biostructural Correction and Torque Release Technique. She spent several years in the UK working in Glasgow for one of the largest chiropractic groups in Europe at the time. For three years Megan loved working at Windsor Chiropractic, Brisbane. For next past two years she enjoyed serving the community in Caboolture and Morayfield with her love of looking after kids, pregnant mums and families. She has now been on Maternity leave for a year – spending time with her gorgeous kids.
Her approach to care is simply to aim to remove nerve interference to the body, primarily through a healthy functional spine, and teach you ways to avoid recreating the same problems in the future and allow the body to do the rest!
Megan and Matt’s kids Hugo and Eleanor have been chiropractic babies their whole lives, were checked within hours of being born by their Daddy and love their adjustments. It’s common to have everyone around the adjustment table at home “helping” during family adjustment times (hint – two kids hanging around does NOT help one get adjusted…..). You’ll occasionally see the kids and/or the dog wandering around the practice if we’re lacking babysitters!
Our Chiropractic Assistants.
Tracy was born in the UK and moved to Australia with her parents when she was 7 years old. After travelling with her family during her school years living in Malaysia, Germany and Singapore she settled on the Sunshine Coast, married and had two children. In the past few years she has become a grandparent to two granddaughters whom she loves having come over for sleepovers where they do crafts, make fairy gardens, read books, dance and sing.
Tracy started her working life as an Enrolled Nurse at Selangor Private Hospital in Nambour. Once her children started school, she worked in a Special Education Developmental Centre working with children 0-6 yrs old who had a moderate to severe disability. It was very rewarding working with not only the children but their families and therapists as well.
The past 10 years she has been working as a Teacher Aide in Prep on the Sunshine Coast and in Tasmania.
Tracy and her family have been using chiropractors regularly since the early 90’s and love getting their adjustments. To now be part of the Vibrant Family Chiropractic Tribe is a natural progression and one that she is very thankful for.
Denise grew up in Switzerland and worked in the Finance Sector until she moved to Australia with her Australian husband in 2012.
A holistic approach to life is deeply imprinted in her and was encouraged by her parents. From a very young age, Denise enjoyed Chiropractic care, Naturopath care and for all those little bumps and bruises the home remedies of her mum.
Denise had to find her feet when she arrived in Australia. She worked in many industries, but enjoyed health related work as a Support Worker for People with a disability and in Age Care best.
Still something was missing and so she applied for the CA role, in which she can now combine her caring nature, the holistic approach to health with her previous skills from Switzerland.
Work life balance is very important to her and relaxing with her family and her animals on her hobby farm is just the trick after a rewarding day at work.
Vanessa Bragdon (fills in if our other CA’s are unavailable + comes in regularly for adjustments for herself and her family)
Her and her husband are part owners of a local gym & martial arts centre and continually strive for optimal health & wellbeing.
She is an enthusiastic advocate of Chiropractic having experienced firsthand the benefits for herself & her family.
Make your life Vibrant!
