What makes Dr Wayne Haynes different to other Chiropractors?

"I see the role of a chiropractor as providing pain relief and functional restoration in order to restore quality of life and engagement in sustained physical activity. Increasing our physical activity levels is a key to many chronic illness states. 

My clinical approach focuses on integrating specialized dynamic hands on therapy, manipulative therapy, exercise advice and lifestyle changes where needed. An approach that encompasses physical activity as “medicine”. I have designed many of the dynamic soft tissue interventions I use in clinical practice, arising from explorations of research.

My clinical approach also recognizes the importance of psychological factors that are ever present in complex pain disorders; Kinesiophobia, other fear based beliefs associated with spinal stiffness presentations

As well, I have a strong knowledge of spinal posture and assessment, spinal stability, balance control and correction. I also have a doctoral level of understanding of the neurophysiology of posture and spinal function, its evolutionary origins, phylogenetic development and ontogenetic process of motor coordination refinement from birth to adulthood. 

I have previously worked in elite sports including consulting to Geelong football club, Cadel Evans, Adam Scott and others. My public health roles involved a leadership position (research and program design) for a national physical activity provider (Bluearth Institute) and as a health care provided for an indigenous health service. I have a lifelong interest in learning and research, completing my PhD in relationships between spinal function and cognition, in 2020 at University of Canberra. My greatest asset in a clinical setting is listening, understanding, relating and building interpersonal relationships based on mutual shared truth, trust and honesty."

Pain & Injury

Your body is normally capable of healing and regulating itself without surgical or pharamaceutical intervention. Sometimes though, when the body's structure is not functioning correctly, this ability to seek balance can result in pain as the body tries to compensate for dysfunction, and over-uses some muscles or joints. Chiropractic care seeks to address structural dysfunction in your body encouraging your muscles, nerves and joints to return to a state of optimal function and decrease pain.

Complex Conditions

Many chronic conditions, especially those that involve persisitent pain symptoms, are life changing. They are often not the result of a single injury or condition but an intertangled web of physical, neurological, and perceived dysfunctions that can be difficult to diagnose and even harder to treat.

When it comes to complex conditions, Dr Wayne has experience, research and compassion on his side and will gladly work with your current team of health professionals or help you choose the practitioners best suited to help you conquer pain and regain control of your symptoms.

His clinical approach embraces physical activity as "medicine" but also recognises psychological factors, such as kinesiophobia and other fear-based beliefs that are often present in complex pain disorders and can hinder the progress of treatment.
