Meet Dr Simon Gilsenan (Chiropractor)

I feel blessed to be part of a profession that I am so passionate about and am thankful I discovered chiropractic when I did.”

What I found to be the most empowering aspect of chiropractic is the emphasis on the recuperative power of the body to heal itself. Chiropractic focuses on the healing process without the use of drugs or surgery and encourages the body and spine to naturally realign and improve quality of life. I wanted to share this wholistic approach to health care with my family and friends and by doing so I chose to become the chiropractor I am today.




My Educational Experience

I started my initial 4 years of Chiropractic education at the Phillip Institute of Technology in Melbourne. I then later transferred to complete the last two years of my education at the Sydney College of Chiropractic where I graduated with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree in the year 1984. I began practicing in Campbelltown, Liverpool, Kensington and Woollahra for 9 years. I then decided to move and continue practicing in the Southern Highlands in 1993 and also kept a practice in Bondi Junction part time.

My Practice Philosophy and Care Objectives

Chiropractic is a health care discipline which emphasises the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery.

The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.

Chiropractic specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions which are due to mechanical dysfunction of all joints but mainly the spine and the effects on the nervous system. All of us, through our daily lives put stress on our spines. This stress can be PHYSICAL; a back or neck injury, poor posture , lack of exercise etc. CHEMICAL; poor diet, medicines, drugs etc, or EMOTIONAL; job stress, family stress, lack of mental stimulation etc.

The body will react differently, from mild ache to being in severe pain. But almost always, the spine will “stiffen” in response. The Chiropractor will adjust the spine to restore it to it’s natural state of structure function and movement. Once the spine begins to function better, tissues will heal better, the nervous system will return to normal and pain and discomfort should ease.

A healthy spine must have all of the following;

  • Healthy functional mobility
  • Healthy functional stability
  • Healthy alignment
  • Healthy sensorimotor function

My Health Habits

I run a free bootcamp open to all of my clients early Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings at the Moss Vale Walking track. This is to encourage my clients to be physically active, maintain fitness levels and maintain a healthy spine alignment (MOVE WELL, FEEL WELL)
