Early Education

Stephen began his pre-chiropractic education at Adelaide University where he studied a degree in the basic sciences and finished with a triple major in anatomy & histology, micro-immuno-virology and physiology. After completing his study there, he was accepted at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Melbourne where he was dubbed “Steveology” by his peers because of his strong scientific background.


During his four years at RMIT, courses included biochemistry, a major emphasis on anatomy and human physiology, X-ray, diagnosis, chiropractic adjusting techniques and patient care in the student College Public Clinic. In 1999 Stephen went back to Adelaide to do his student placement followed by working with a number of other clinics locally and then interstate observing many of Australia’s leading practitioners.


After Graduating

After graduating in 2000 Stephen returned to the Melbourne and worked in the West learning and further developing his applied kinesiology skills. In 2001 he became a certified Applied Kinesiologist and started working at “North Road Chiropractic” while he also established his own practice “Carlton North Family Chiropractic.”


He continued his Studies in Chiropractic Pediatrics with Doctor Neil Davies, learning NeuroImpulseProtocol (NIP).  NIP is a gentle and effective way of analyzing and treating pediatric patients.  


Stephen has attended many lectures in a variety of Chiropractic techniques as well as further studies in Nutrition , Biochemistry and Integrated Medicine.  


He is a member of Australian College of Nutrition and Environmental Medicine (ACNEM).  


This all culminated in 2013 when Stephen became only one of 10 diplomates in Australia in Applied Kinesiology.  Later that year he became a certified teacher in Applied Kinesiology and taught his first series in 2014.  He was awarded ‘The best Diplomate Candidate’ for 2013/2014 from the international board of examiners of the International College of Applied Kinesiology.  He has since lectured Nationally and Internationally in the fields of Applied Kinesiology and Nutritional Medicine.


“We love sceptics,” smiles Stephen. “I still remember the concerns and apprehension I had when I went to the chiropractor for the first time. So we make it a point to explain everything in advance, answer questions and attempt to over communicate. Patients appreciate that.”


Stephen is married with 3 beautiful daughters and a gorgeous Son Stephen Jnr.
