Meet Our Practitioners

Kane Anderson | Chiropractor

My chiropractic passion is centered around family wellness care. When it comes to treatment, I like to look at the body as a whole. I seek to create an efficient and functional nervous system, to allow the best health outcomes for my patients. To do this I use a range of different Chiropractic methods, specializing in Diversified Technique, Activator and Drop Table. I also use Trigger Point soft tissue work before my adjustments to help with your care as a patient.  I care for pregnant mothers, to newborns, to the elderly. I like to create a family environment, looking after parents and their children. I really enjoy seeing families grow and thrive together.I went to school at Gorokan Primary and High Schools.  I grew up always playing sport, including Rugby League, Cricket, Swimming, Athletics, Squash, Hapkido and more, so I always knew that my career was going to be in the health industry. This led me to my Sport Science degree. This course created a drive to pursue health further, when I discovered Chiropractic and all it had to offer. The more I looked into it, the more I loved it. So, after 4 years of commuting to Macquarie University, I completed my Masters of Chiropractic in 2011.I have lived on the Central Coast my whole life and have an understanding of this area. My wife, Beck, and I both live an active lifestyle and are highly involved in the local community here on the Coast. I currently play cricket for the Northern Power, am a member of Toukley Golf Club, a Life Member of Toukley Rugby League Football Club, as well as playing some Touch Football and Mixed Netball with Beck. We have just had our first baby girl in June 2015. We are both extremely proud parents and I love nothing more than being able to treat my baby girl and watch her thrive.
