Dr Alyssa Chan (Chiropractor)

Alyssa Chan chiropractor

Hi, my name is Alyssa and I am a chiropractor who has treated patients from all ages and all walks of life. In my past, I have volunteered on chiropractic trips to treat people in the impoverished community of Siliguri, India in 2014 (as a part of “Hands On India”), as well as in rural parts of Western Australia such as Tom Price and Paraburdoo in 2015. I believe everyone can benefit from the effects of chiropractic treatment but one must be open to changing for the better. As a chiropractor working within the heart of the city, I naturally love to see and treat office workers with stubborn neck, mid-back, and low back pain and educate them in the importance of preventative spinal care.

As a chiropractic patient myself who still continues to receive regular treatment to this day, I understand the natural habits that people unconsciously revert to during sustained seated positions. As a creative individual, I would often sit for hours in one position hunched over on the floor writing, typing, reading, playing the guitar, or hand-stitching clothes. I believe this is why I can relate to office workers a lot and thoroughly enjoy treating them because I understand the stresses and impact these sustained postures can have on both the body and mind.

To me, chiropractic is about restoring normal functioning to the spine and nervous system so that one can maintain an optimum self-regulating internal environment that in turn enables one to function, excel, and perform at their best. My chiropractic vision is one that focuses on holistic health care and patient-centred approaches to treatment. I enjoy discussing through with patients regarding their wants, needs, and expectations of their treatment plan and will always make sure that the patient receives the best treatment that I can give. I would describe my treatment style to be gentle and combined with modalities such as the following: Diversified Technique, SOT (Sacro-Occipital Technique), manual adjustments, mobilisations, IASTM (instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilisation) using a STMfish, drop piece, activator, biomechanical blocking, and trigger point therapy.

I believe being a chiropractor is a fulfilling job as it enables me to combine my love of human biology with my caring nature. On the other hand, outside of my job, I also like to embrace the creative and adventurous side of my personality. I am a huge music geek and enjoy music of the indie and alternative rock persuasion, and love to play the guitar and sing to my own covers of favourite songs, I also enjoy writing stories, designing and creating things by hand like clothes and jewellery, watching horror films, going on spontaneous roadtrips, and travelling. I am also a sports fanatic and enjoy watching (and used to play) soccer and tennis.

If any of what you’ve just read about me made you feel a connection, I’d love to help and look forward meeting you.
