Raised on a dairy farm in the south of Ireland, Paul’s upbringing in the middle of seven brothers instilled a strong set of family values in him. And it was also in Ireland that his interest in his chosen field was cemented.

“While studying in Ireland I observed an Australian chiropractor at work and you could see the physical results; it changed people,” Paul reflected. “Within an afternoon my mind was made up to learn how to help people in this way. After I graduated the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic with a Bachelor of Science Degree in 2005, I practiced in southern England for two years before deciding that an adventure was needed.” An adventure which brought Paul’s therapeutic talents to Australian shores, where he gained his chiropractic competency in Melbourne and set up home and shop in Townsville in 2008 with his partner Laura. And adventure they got thanks to a couple of cyclones and an NRL championships, but none more so than the birth of their two young boys – Noah, age 7 and Elijah, age 3. Now with practices in both Townsville and Charters Towers, Paul said it’s been a privilege to work with people from all walks of life.

“Each week we see mine operators, Defence personnel, athletes, young students and expecting mothers,” Paul explained. “Our goal is to help you be at your best at every phase of your life. We like to hear about your general health history and give you a thorough exam to identify any areas where your spine may not be working well. Chiropractic care enables people to move and feel better through their own bodies, giving them a chance to get back on track with life; whether it be sport, study or simply getting a good nights’ sleep!” Paul’s chiropractic code involves using highlyeffective and gentle techniques together with the provision of professional, practical advice for his clients to take away and use in their everyday lives. “My findings from your initial visit are explained in ‘normal speak’ along with our recommendations to get you back on track,” Paul stated. “If we need to see exactly what is going on in your spine, our X-ray service is bulk-billed.” Call our chiropractic assistant Jill to book your visit.
