Dr Jacinta Tan
My journey in chiropractic began after a personal experience when a chiropractor in Kuala Lumpur helped my dad get movement back and living so much more comfortably after he went through two back surgeries, which resulted in chronic pain. So from Malaysia, I moved to Melbourne for 5 years to pursue chiropractic and graduated with distinction from the RMIT University Chiropractic program!
At present, I have 9 years of clinical experiences in several busy practices across Melbourne and Brisbane – and I am very excited to be joining the fantastic team at HPC Chiropractic. My absolute passion lies in sharing the chiropractic message that life with more movement and less pain is very possible. As a keen athlete, I absolutely credit chiropractic for helping my performance in the completion of several full marathons, making it to the Victorian dragon boat team as well as competitive rock climbing.
The approach I take combines chiropractic adjustments with advice in what to do to reduce pain at work, at home or at sports, and nutritional recommendations. My techniques include manual spinal adjusting, gentle SOT technique, extremity adjusting, sporting injuries in adults, teenagers and active kids, pregnancy-related back pain or sciatica and headaches. My interest in witnessing infants and kids thrive with chiropractic care also led me to pursue further post-graduate studies in paediatrics.
When I’m not at work, you will find me either climbing rocks, on the beach, being an eco-warrior (I’m a big fan of composting), and tending to my many plants or just spending plain old quality time with family and friends.
