Dr Marcus Kennedy
My name is Dr Marcus Kennedy. I’m the principal chiropractor and founding partner of Wangaratta Health and Wellbeing. As part of the clinical team I can manage symptomatic presentations commonly associated with Chiropractic (back pain, headaches, neck pain, sporting injuries, decreased mobility etc) however I also enjoy motivating and seeing people reach their full potential and thriving in life. That’s why I love being a chiropractor.
I strive to be an expert in helping myself and my clients achieve better health and devote lots of my spare time to understanding human potential. My studies have given me the knowledge and opportunity to help people of all ages from infants to the elderly.
Outside of chiropractic my main interest is keeping fit. I compete in Ironman 70.3 triathlon events. I swim like a brick and am never going to win or be elite but I enjoy the challenge of gradually improving and getting the best out of myself. If you keep an eye out you will probably notice me training around Wangaratta.
Why did I become a chiropractor?
I decided to become a Chiropractor when I was 15 due to the life changing effects I achieved with the help of Chiropractic. I first saw my chiropractor when I was 7 with a permanent torticollis I’d had my whole life (a massive neck spasm, due to a traumatic birth). Up until this point I’d also worn glasses for a lazy eye. After a course of chiropractic adjustments both of these improved dramatically and I haven’t worn glasses since. This was a big surprise to my family and I as we thought the only way to get further improvement was an operation. Chiropractic also helped hugely with my dyslexia. I couldn’t read or spell at all in early school and I was always at the bottom of the class. After an initial drastic improvement my academic ability has gradually improved as I’ve gone through life and very grateful I found chiropractic when I did.
I wouldn’t be where I am today without Chiropractic.
What Do I Offer?
The first visit is all about you. A detailed history of presenting problem/s and health generally will be taken. We will discuss your goals of care and access whether we can help. If I think we can help, a detailed examination will follow to get to the root of your problem. The examination will include a thorough:
- Neurological examination
- Chiropractic examination
- Health examination
X-rays and other tests may be recommended if they are required to help with your diagnosis or to determine how to best to care for your problems. We generally start care on the 1st visit assuming it is safe to do so.
First Visit Fee - $105
On your second visit we will take the time to fully explain exactly what the findings of your exam and any other tests mean. We will advise you on your options for care and you will be able to decide which type of care (If any) will suit you best. If it is discovered that chiropractic care cannot help you at any stage then we will help by referring you to someone who can.
