About the Principal Practitioner and Owner
Dr. Nicholas Dillon (Chiropractor)
"I'll admit I was sceptical when a friend of mine suggested I try chiropractic. I've had many falls over the years from snowboarding, wake-boarding and skateboarding but I really didn't know that there was a special doctor to "put me back together again". I thought that pain eventually goes away on its own, just as long as I didn't break anything!
Well, after I face planted while having a great time water skiing, I could hardly walk. I felt like a cripple as I limped around - it was embarrassing.
I eventually went to a local Chiropractor to see if maybe they could help me. I was surprised how gentle the treatment was, and I was even more surprised by how good I felt afterwards. It was truly amazing; after several chiropractic visits I actually felt better than I did before I had injured myself. I realised that I had many other little aches and pains and I had just "learned to live with it".
It wasn't long before I decided to become a chiropractor myself."
Dr. Dillon (Chiropractor) began his bachelor of Science degree at Macquarie University where he studied the fundamental sciences such as inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, biology, statistics and mathematics. During his second and third years he studied biochemistry, genetics, computing science, anatomy, physiology and chiropractic studies.
After completing his undergraduate study there, he continued with his masters degree which included X-ray, diagnosis, chiropractic adjusting techniques and patient care in the outpatients clinics. After five years full time study of chiropractic and medical sciences Dr.Dillon (Chiropractor) began working the following year in Burwood.
“We welcome sceptics,” smiles Dr. Dillon (Chiropractor). “I still remember what it was like with my first visit to the chiropractor, I wasn't sure what to expect.... So we make it a point to explain everything in advance, and answer any questions . Patients appreciate that.”
Dr. Dillon (Chiropractor) is married to Natalie and they have a beautiful baby daughter, Olivia. He enjoys playing guitar and surfing in his free time. He cares greatly for the well being of his patients and encourages a healthy and active lifestyle.
"Those that already exercise regularly and have healthy lifestyles benefit greatly from what I have to offer. More and more people are now choosing health and wellness and are looking for safe and natural remedies before resorting to drugs and surgery. These people are already chiropractic patients, even if they don't know it !"
Could Chiropractic Help You?
Your nervous system controls and regulates every cell of your body. When your nervous system doesn’t work correctly, you don’t work correctly. And when you don’t work correctly, you’re sick! Simple as that.
Nerve compromise can result from postural distortions that are easily revealed with a few simple tests. Consult a professional for evaluation!
Simply study the pictures, follow the directions and conduct the tests. If the results indicate that you or a loved one is a good candidate for chiropractic care, contact Spinal Health Clinic to arrange a thorough examination in our practice immediately.
Our Philosophy and Commitment to You
Our approach is simple. We believe that health is among our most valuable possessions. And while we generally meet people after they’ve lost their health, our commitment is two-fold:
- Relief Care for Burwood & Cammeray
Relief or wellness care... it's your choice.
When many people seek care in our practice they have one goal: relief. So that’s where we start!
During this initial stage of intensive care, we have several obligations:
• Uncover the underlying cause of the health problem
• Suggest a care plan to produce the fastest results possible
• Offer ways patients can participate in their recovery
• Explain the value of post-symptomatic wellness care
- Wellness Care for Burwood & Cammeray
We encourage our patients to achieve the highest levels of health they can. Through educational opportunities (like this website), we hope to communicate the value of ongoing chiropractic care. Our desire is to see our patients abandon the prevailing sickness care model of health (waiting for symptoms and then taking action), in favour of the emerging wellness model.
You’re in Charge
Regardless of your health goals, please understand that we see ourselves as mere servants. You’re the boss! It’s your body, your health and your future. Our job is to offer you the finest chiropractic care possible, and it’s up to you to decide how much of it you want.

What to Expect
Your First Visit
When you first arrive at our office you will be greeted by reception and asked to complete a basic patient history form so that we may understand details of your health. Upon completion of your paperwork you will be escorted to our examination room. Here is your opportunity to tell us about your health concerns and how you would like us to help you. We may study your movement patterns, perform some orthopedic tests and take a thermal image and scan of your spine. Our tests are non invasive, painless and our scans are radiation free. Once your examination is completed we may wish to obtain some X rays of your spine. We will let you know exactly what is required in order to best address your health issues.
Your Second Visit
On your second visit we will present to you the examination findings in the form of a detailed visual presentation. We will explain in detail exactly what your problem is and how to best address it. This is your chance to ask any questions about your scans or X rays and other tests we have performed. Once you are comfortable that we have explained everything to you and answered all of your questions we will perform your first spinal adjustment. Our treatments are gentle and safe and we will talk you through each step.
During your regular visits to our office we will first start with a basic spinal and postural check while you lay face down. This will let us know how you are responding to your care program. Following your treatment session we may offer important information to you regarding your posture, activities and daily routines. We will monitor your activities and work habits to ensure your recovery is as fast as possible.
Our Diagnostic Approach
At Spinal Health Clinic, we utilize an advanced chiropractic technology that scans your spine and delivers a computerized image of the stress and tension to your nervous system. Two different technologies give us (and you) an objective assessment:
Surface Electromyography measures the minute amounts of electrical energy in the muscles along your spine. Subluxations disturb the function of the nervous system. This can produce too much or too little electrical activity in your muscles. We use this highly-accurate, non-invasive scan to document your progress. It’s more accurate than how you feel.
As you’d expect, this measures temperature. When there are disturbances to your nervous system along the spine, there are often temperature differences from side to side. This is due to inflammation and changes in blood flow. Our thermal scan is non-invasive and reveals the condition of your autonomic nervous system controlling your organs, glands and circulatory system.
What to Expect
After gowning, we’ll have you sit still for a moment or two. Then, starting at the base of your skull, we’ll run two probes down your back. Think of these as miniature radio antennas listening for a distant station. That’s it. The computer does the rest!
At your report, you’ll get to see the computerized printout and learn what it means. Because your care is based on the condition of your nervous system, not how you feel, this technology is the focal point of our practice.
Our Treatments : Flexion Decompression
Flexion Decompression is an Alternative to Surgery, Physical Therapy and Pain Killers
State of the Art Treatment from the US now available....
You don't have to live in debilitating pain. Whether you have lower back pain, a pinched nerve, sciatica, or a variety of symptoms related to damaged or degenerative discs, as well as syndromes of the lumbar spine, Flexion Decompression Therapy may be for you.
This gentle, non-surgical therapy can provide lower back pain relief, sciatica pain relief, and is a state-of-the-art therapy for bulging or degenerative disc disease, and lumbar pain.
The gentle forces of the Flexion Decompression therapy create a decompression of the spine with unloading due to distraction and proper positioning, to improve blood flow and nutrient exchange to the injured area.
Therapy sessions typically last less than 15 minutes with most patients feeling pain relief with as few as 4-8 treatments. Our goal is to not only help heal the disc, but to also enhance muscular control and support of the back and neck.
Regular exercise and periodic visits to our office will help in maintaining your spinal health and reduce the probability of re-occurrence. Clinical results of this type of therapy have been effective in over 80% of the patients treated and most patients find long-term relief or effective management of their pain when they complete the entire program of treatments utilizing Flexion Decompression Therapy.
If you’ve been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, let Dr Dillon (Chiropractor) know. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.
