Dr Grant Wilkinson D.C, B.Sc, M.Sc is the principal practitioner at Wilkinson Chiropractic. Grant initially studied a Bachelor of Science (Medical Science) at the University of Wollongong whilst also completing his undergraduate chiropractic degree at night at Macquarie University. In 1999 Grant moved into full time Masters of Science (Chiropractic) at Macquarie and completed his post-graduate, masters degree in 2001. As such, he is registered as a Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C) with the Chiropractic Board of Australia and Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.
Dr Wilkinson first worked as a “locum” chiropractor taking over clinics in Queensland, Tasmania and regional New South Wales before settling in and beginning work at Sydney Chiropractic and Injury Rehabilitation Centre (SCIRC) in late 2002.
In 2005 Dr Wilkinson established his own practice and has been working out of these current premises ever since. As a former professional sportsman whose career was cut short due to a shoulder injury and subsequent unsuccessful surgery, he has a keen interest in sporting injuries and is still heavily involved in surf life saving and oztag competitions as a competitor, a coach and as a treating practitioner.
Professionally, Wilkinson Chiropractic has a very diverse range of patients who attend the clinic ranging from the usual spinal pain syndromes you associate with chiropractic care right through to sports and other injuries to knees, shoulders, ankles, etc as well as patients with “type O” complaints such as migraines and some other types of headaches as an example.
Dr Wilkinson uses a wide array of treatment modalities which include not just spinal adjustments but also massage, active and passive soft tissue releases, musculoskeletal acupuncture, dry needling, ultrasound as well as stretching and exercise programs and advice.
The clinic moto is along the lines of the Gonstead Technique of Chiropractic mantra: ”Find It, Accept It, Fix It, Leave it Alone”. This means that often the underlying source of a complaint or problem may not necessarily be where the patient is feeling it but once treatment has begun it is essential that patients be given time for the body to adapt and respond between treatments.
