Burnside Chiropractic



Our Family Chiropractors

Dr. Nathaniel Thorpe, Family Chiropractor


Originally from the Adelaide hills, I have spent the past 6 and a half years away, most recently returning from practicing in Mount Gambier. My own journey into chiropractic began at 6 years of age. I continued to reap the benefits of chiropractic with my family through the several growth spurts of my teenage years and into my adulthood. I can't imagine my life without chiropractic. It has kept my ability to play soccer for the Unley Rangers to this day, without relying on pain medication like so many of my teammates.

I use a variety of chiropractic techniques to suit the situation best. Mostly, I use manual techniques (Diversified and Gonstead) which I modify from firm to very gentle according to the individual case. I also use Activator, and SOT techniques. Exercise is a part of the health puzzle that I guide individuals in and encourage greatly.

It is my belief that everyone from young to old deserves to function at their best.
