Our Chiropractors

Dr Dannielle Medhurst – Director/Chiropractor

DC BSc Hons. Dry needling (UK)

Dannielle obtained her degree in 2005 from the WIOC in Wales, UK. She has also completed multiple tertiary qualifications including dry needling and is currently completing her ICCSP qualification to be to be an Internationally Certified Chiropractic Sport Science Practitioner. This will allow her to work at events such as the Olympics, World Games and Commonwealth Games amongst others.

After graduation, Dannielle moved to Oman in the Middle East and opened its first ever mixer chiropractic clinic. Her primary goal was to offer a health care solution to those with no alternative. In 2011, a new challenge brought Dannielle to the Redlands. Dannielle has had a varied upbringing completing her studies in the UK and living abroad in Brunei and Oman.

Her philosophy for care is to ‘treat others how I would like to be treated and find what treatment best suits the complaint and individual’ therefore utilising a mixer style of care. She believes in the importance of crisis pain management, but more importantly maintenance care to improve quality of life via a holistic, non pharmaceutical approach. Although Dannielle has a keen interest in sports injuries her care can be styled to help any individual. Her aim is to help everyone function at their best.

A word from Dannielle

“On a personal note. Over the years I too have suffered injuries. Those of a congenital and sporting nature but the worst was falling off a 10 meter cliff in 2010 and suffering ten+ spinal fractures, a few ribs, a dislocated jaw, two open head wounds and significant concussion. I lost my memory for a period and was on months off bed rest and rehabilitation. All this was after becoming a chiropractor! Although I recovered well I am now in the stages of early degenerative onset which has its own set of challenges. So yes I can totally sympathise with the physical but often emotional toll that comes when you are not living the life you want.”

A word from Tammie

“Over the years I have suffered multiple sporting injuries. This is what drove my passion to learn more about musculoskeletal conditions and appropriate management to get the best results with not only short-term but long-term goals. I understand what the emotional and physical strain of being in pain and not performing at your best can be. I enjoy finding ways to improve the bodies flexibility and range of motion which in turn enhances recovery, sports performance and injury prevention. There are many ways to help us perform at our best, recover from ailments, improve health and achieve our goals whether it be getting back in the garden or reaching new PB’s. 

I have a positive attitude and am always eager to learn new ways to live a healthy productive life. Doing so means we are able to do the things we have to do or need to do (like dressing, looking after children or going to work), things we want to do (like gardening or going to the gym) but also perform such activities without limitation or even hesitation. I am excited about what that life can bring”.
