Introducing our new chiropractor Dr Michael Sexton
I would like to introduce myself and tell you about some changes occurring at Surf Coast Chiropractic. My name is Michael Sexton and I am taking ownership of the practice as Ben starts to spend more time in Melbourne with his young family and his city practice. However, Ben is still practising in Torquay on Friday mornings.
I am from a family of chiropractors, there are five of us currently practising, four of whom practice in Bendigo, where I grew up. I have been practising in Surrey Hills in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne for the past 15 years and have recently taken the opportunity to spend more time down the coast.
I have a wife and four grown children with a strong connection to the Torquay area. We have regularly holidayed here over many years and my youngest son and I are often down here on weekends at our favourite windsurfing spot, Point Danger.
I have been a chiropractor for more than 25 years. My passion is in educating people about the importance of the spine and nervous system in determining our wellbeing. My recipe for good health is quite simple ... eat well, move well and think well. Lifestyle is the key and I believe the Surf Coast offers the perfect environment to create a healthy lifestyle.
My highest priority in practice is promoting spinal health in children because the growing years are the most important in the development of healthy patterns of posture and movement. My own children have had regular chiropractic care since birth.
I also have a background in professional sport. I played 200 games of AFL football for Carlton, the highlight being the 1995 premiership. I have been the chiropractor for the Richmond Football Club for the past 4 years, including this current premiership year and their drought breaking 2017 flag. I have also looked after professional tennis players over many years through my involvement with the Australian Open. I enjoy helping professional athletes perform at their best, however I am equally passionate about helping everybody live happier, healthier lives.
Surf Coast Chiropractic will continue its strong focus on providing high quality spinal health care for people of all ages in the Torquay area. You can make appointments by calling 5261 7438 or checking out our new online booking option. Hopefully I'll see you in the practice soon.
Wishing you good health
