Dr Paul Simmons
Leader and Role Model
I believe in being a leader and role model for my family, my patients, my colleagues and my profession by keeping healthy through chiropractic care, regular exercise and quality nutrition.
I am passionate in pursuing the highest standard of chiropractic technique and knowledge of the human body so I can give the best possible care and results to my patients.
I was a fit 21-year-old playing in my first A grade cricket semi-final when I simply bent forward to pick up a ball that was rolling towards me.
Suddenly I felt a “pop” and immediately after felt excruciating pain in my lower back and down my left leg, all the way to my big toe. The pain was excruciating and unbearable and I was carried off the field by my team mates.
A friend of mine suggested I see a Gonstead chiropractor, so I made an emergency appointment and thankfully was seen that day.
I was initially scared and in a lot of pain.
The examination was very thorough and my injury was explained to me which gave me confidence I had made the right decision to see a chiropractor.
I had my spine adjusted and followed my chiropractor’s advice.
After a few treatments, my low back and leg pain improved and, almost after a week after my initial injury, I was given the green light to play in my victorious cricket grand final.
At the time, I was studying a Bachelor of Science and this experience was so profound that it inspired me to switch my degree to a Bachelor of Chiropractic.
Since then, regular Gonstead chiropractic care has helped me keep active without having to worry about pain anymore.
I continue to play a high level of cricket in the summer and compete in military style obstacle courses in the winter. When I’m not being a chiropractor I enjoy tending my veggie garden, fermenting and preserving foods and spending time with my young family and our cat, Sooty.
I have a special interest in treating temporomandibular joint dysfunction (jaw pain and clicking), shoulder joint pain, low back pain and sciatica (leg pain).
I regularly attend Gonstead chiropractic seminars and workshops. In January 2016, I travelled to the USA to visit the original Gonstead clinic in Mt Horeb, Wisconsin.
It was a privilege to be able to retrace the steps of Dr. Clarence Gonstead, the founder of the Gonstead System of Chiropractic.
I look forward to meeting you.
