DonnaDr Donna Palmer (BSc MChiro) – Director/ Chiropractor

Donna’s first experience with chiropractic care came about in her early teens. She was actively involved in athletics, netball and tennis, and was State Heptathlon Champion at 15. However, Donna experienced ongoing problems with her back and hips which eventually resulted in a trip to her local chiropractor.

After receiving regular chiropractic care, she found her sporting ability and overall physical wellbeing improved significantly. So much so, that Donna decided to become a chiropractor herself.

In 1996 she graduated from Macquarie University with a Master of Chiropractic, and a Bachelor of Science from Adelaide University, majoring in Anatomy and Physiology. She has also completed numerous post-graduate courses over the past 20 years.

Donna married her high school sweetheart, Matt, and together they have 4 children. Supporting families, empowering women during pregnancy, and working with children to help them reach their full potential is Donna’s passion. Her mission is to help people of all ages, whether it be acute musculoskeletal injury, chronic pain management, mobility issues, or auditory processing disorders (APD).
