Dr Emily Petherbridge (Chiropractor)

B.Sc (Chiro) (Macq) M. Chiro (Macq)

Emily was drawn to paediatric healthcare at a young age and went on to complete the 3 year undergraduate Bachelor of Science (Chiropractic) and the 2 year Masters of Chiropractic at Macquarie University.

She has a keen interest in child health from a structural, chemical, emotional and social viewpoint. Her interests in this field also extend into child neurodevelopment and how this impacts us as adults.

As an avid rock climber and skier, Emily also has a focus on health and nutrition outside of work. Both activities focus on balance and co-ordination and Emily utilises the examination processes and rehabilitation exercises used within the clinic to get the most from her body and perform at her best during NSW State and National Rock Climbing and Bouldering Competitions and during winter as part of the Perisher Volunteer Ski Patrol.

Since graduating Emily has furthered her education completing a number of courses including:

  • Applied Kinesiology courses
  • Retained Neonatal Reflexes (RNRs)
  • Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT)
  • Total Body Modification (TBM).

In 2012 Emily went to the USA and obtained the Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) Certified Level 2. 

Emily has also attended courses in chiropractic neurology and functional neurology, functional biochemistry and paediatric chiropractic. In 2015 Emily completed the 2 year Diplomate in Chiropractic Neurodevelopmental Paediatrics though the College of Chiropractic Neuro-developmental Paediatrics (CCNP) and in 2017 completed the 2 year Diplomate in Chiropractic Neurology through The Carrick Institute.

Emily also uses her previous experience as a gymnastics and kindergym coach to provide additional support to the work done in clinic. This experience is used to provide rehabilitation exercises and programs to both children and adults.
