Dr Paul Chamberlain
A wealth of Child Chiropractic experience
Dr Chamberlain, BChiroSc, BAppSc(Clin), BSc(Hons), MCAA has been a chiropractor since 1999.
Practising in a child-focused setting since 2003, after studying a Fellowship of Chiropractic Paediatrics in Melbourne.
Dr Chamberlain has:
- Lectured at undergraduate and post-graduate level in Australia and New Zealand in the field of chiropractic paediatrics for over 15 years.
- Also a member of the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia, with past positions on the Victorian branch’s Professional Standards Committee.
- Opened the Family Tree Health centre in Greensborough in July 2013.
Paul is married to Osteopath, Dr Clare Isaac
Dr Clare Chamberlain (nee Isaac) brings her skills as a mother of four, and osteopath, to the household. Clare also works at their Greensborough Centre as an Osteopath on Wednesday and Friday.
The result is a family growing together in knowledge and understanding of paediatric and family care. Also, Paul and Clare understand which children are better suited to an Osteopath, and which should see a Chiropractor.
Caring for parents
While caring for children, Dr Chamberlain is focussed on making the whole experience as comfortable for the parents as possible. Using a holistic approach, he is committed to enganging parents in their child’s chiropractic care.
This is done through a clearly communicated explanation of any issues, and making himself available to all families on the phone, and via email.
Chiropractors readily refer children to paediatricians, orthopaedic surgeons, neurologists, and complementary health practitioners, such as osteopaths, naturopaths, homeopaths, acupuncturists, psychologists, and myotherapists.
Family Tree Health has a broad range of paediatric services on site. All are experienced, and able to assist the range of children’s needs. The internal referral network is seamless, and makes it easy to co-manage children.
Dr Chamberlain has four children aged 5 to 12 years. He said “Our children have taught us the intricacies of paediatrics beyond the textbook. We believe the result is an enhanced holistic approach to care.
Also, we understand why parents and patients sometimes run late…”
