Chiropractors are non-surgical spine and musculoskeletal care experts. They are 5 year university trained with a focus on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of neuromusculoskeletal disorders. There is an emphasis on manual techniques, including joint manipulation, soft tissue therapies and injury rehabilitation. A typical consult will involve taking a comprehensive medical history, conducting a thorough physical examination, ruling out red flags, suggesting a diagnosis, and administering treatment after obtaining informed consent. Denmark Chiropractic offers an evidence-based approach to health and is dedicated to providing first-class chiropractic care to the Denmark community and surrounds.

He was honoured with the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia, Marcia Cerutty Award for Clinical Excellence. Matt has furthered his studies in health by completing a postgraduate certificate in human nutrition from Deakin University. He is a current member of Chiropractic Australia.
Matt uses a variety of methods incorporating chiropractic adjustments, muscular therapies, dry needling/anatomical acupuncture, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilisations, kinesiology taping, sports strapping and rehabilitative exercises. His approach is to tailor the care to suit the client’s needs and adapt his management to best solve their problem.
In 2012 Matt set up a chiropractic clinic on the remote island of Nias, Indonesia. During this time he offered free Chiropractic treatment and health checks to local village people who were affected by the 2004 tsunami and 2005 earthquake. He has returned on four separate occasions to undertake the voluntary work. This has given Matt a strong focus in community and rural primary health.
He is passionate about preventing injuries, improving performance and optimizing the health of his patients. With health and wellness being a huge part of his own life, his goal is to promote this to assist patients in reaching their own physical potential.
