Dr. Kevin Ivins
Dip. Ed, BSc, MChiropractic, ICSSD
Kevin attended the Australian Catholic University and received a Diploma of Education and a Bachelor of Science and Master of Chiropractic degree from Macquarie University. After four years as a PhD candidate in Neuroscience investigating The Convergence Pattern Of Afferents from Facet joints at T1 to T4, the Pericardium and the Myocardium in the rat Kevin undertook a sabbatical in order to complete a Diploma of International Chiropractic Sports Science from the Federation Internationale de Chiropratique de Sport in conjunction with Acupuncture at the Australian Medical Acupuncture Training Centre. This has enabled him to be registered with the International Olympic Committee to provide care for elite athletes.
He is a licenced Radiographer in Spinal and Extremities and is qualified in Venepuncture and Drug and Alcohol Detection.
Dr. Ivins has held a position at Macquarie University, Centre for Chiropractic where he worked as a Lecturer, Clinic Supervisor and Clinical Competency Board Examiner.
Dr. Ivins currently works in private practice providing effective, non-surgical relief for both minor and complex problems. His approach is to find the underlying cause of a presenting condition via analysis of all available medical information and a careful assessment of functional and structural abnormalities. Having achieved this a program of therapy can be designed and implemented to successfully manage a range of disorders to suit each individual given the scope of Chiropractic care.
Dr. Ivins is a registered Healthcare Provider with the Australian Government My Health Record Scheme.
During Dr. Ivins’ career he has had the privilege to receive mentorship and friendship from the late Professor Keith Kancross and Dr. Ronald Flint who provided him with the foundations that still to this day influence the way Dr. Ivins provides treatment.
"It is of absolute necessity for any health professional to fully understand the complexity of a presenting patient's condition and therefore realise how their chosen modality of treatment can affect the outcomes of such conditions without causing harm to the patient. The practitioner in my humble opinion requires to subjugate their ego and serve the patient with integrity, compassion and provide realistic outcomes for the chosen treatment protocol."
