Functional Medicine

Functional Medicine determines how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual.

Functional medicine is an individualised, patient-centred, science-based approach for addressing the underlying root cause of disease and promoting optimal health, wellbeing and wellness.  It requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors.  This information is then used to direct personalised treatment plans that lead to improved patient wellbeing.

The Pillars of the Approach

Exercise and movement
Stress management

By addressing the root cause of disease, rather than symptoms, practitioners are able to understand the complexity of the patient’s complaint, and its interconnected nature in the body.  They may find one condition has many different causes and, likewise, one cause may result in many different conditions. As a result, Functional Medicine treatment targets the specific manifestations of disease in each individual.

For example, one person suffering with with a bowel condition may have similar symptoms to the next person, but a completely different underlying cause for their problem.  Through conventional approaches, these two people would receive the same treatments.  Functional Medicine, however, gives understanding of the underlying root cause behind the problem, allowing us to tailor the treatment plan to exactly suit that patient and their individual condition.

Functional medicine not only helps to understand and address chronic health challenges and conditions, but it can also work to optimise and improve your general health and wellbeing by analysing where you body may be out of balance, deficient or toxic.  We can then redress these areas through natural and holistic approach utilising the very latest knowledge and techniques in the field.


Most people who see a Chiropractor do so initially to help relieve pain or to improve their mobility. Once they start to see the enormous benefits that Chiropractic can give them, they choose to continue with care beyond just pain relief.

Chiropractic is the third largest healthcare profession in the world, after medicine and dentistry. Thousands of people each day, all over the world, see chiropractors for help with a very wide variety of issues.  Doctors of Chiropractic undergo extensive education and training, and must reach very high standards in order to be able to practise. Even once qualified, Chiropractors must undergo regular training and professional development.

A Doctor of Chiropractic’s education covers the subjects of anatomy, physiology, neurology, pharmacology, neuroanatomy, biomechanics, diagnosis, biochemistry and nutrition, in great detail.

Chiropractic offers people a natural, holistic, functional and evidence-based approach to their healthcare.  People seek the help of a chiropractor for a wide variety of reasons.  Including help with back and neck pain, sciatica and trapped nerves, sports injuries, certain types of headaches plus many more.  Lots of people also choose to see a chiropractic as a part of their general health and wellbeing care; they just know it makes them feel better!

Dr Steve sees patients of all shapes, sizes, ages and from all walks of life.  He has specific training in paediatrics (including the care of babies), pre and post-natal care, sports injuries and biomechanics.
