Our Team

Our team of chiropractors have been providing chiropractic services to the residents of Melbourne for many years now. We have a reputation among our chiropractic colleagues and patients as being “the-go-to” emergency chiropractors in Melbourne. This reputation was built through putting out patient’s needs first since opening our doors. We pride ourselves on providing effective chiropractic care at all times, but specifically PROMPT “after hours” chiropractic care. We have been helping patients for years on Sunday mornings, Public holidays, Saturday nights… Many of our chiropractic colleagues refer their patients to us on weekends and for after-hours care because they know we are always available.

Dr Robbie Hunt

Dr Robbie Hunt, Chiropractor, recognizes that when people are in severe and acute pain they need to be cared for in a prompt and individualized manner. Robbie started offering emergency chiropractic care in 2004 after he realised their was a distinct lack of practitioners offering this service. “Despite the clear need and demand for this service I realised it was near impossible to get an out-of-hours appointment with a chiropractor… I personally have been injured and in need emergency chiropractic care. Fortunately for me, being a chiropractor, I can call one of my Chiropractic colleagues and friends on their mobiles and go to their house for treatment… most people however don’t have this luxury!” So since this time, my team and I have been an emergency chiropractic Victoria-wide, operated mainly out of private practices, occasionally at sporting clubs/fields and at patient’s home and workplaces

Robbie’s passion to become a chiropractor begun after he was involved in serious car accident whilst at school and went to a chiropractor for help with neck pain and headaches. It was after a great experience that Robbie investigated Chiropractic further and decided to go university to become a chiropractor. Over the years, Robbie has seen patients of all ages, and for a variety of concerns. As an avid sportsman himself, he enjoys helping athletes of all levels from amateur footballers in the VAFA league to world Champion Ironman competitors, who frequent his practices for a variety of injuries and health concerns.

Robbie regularly attends post-graduate seminars and training so he stays current with the latest research, treatment and techniques. He is an active member of RMIT University’s M-PIL mentor program where he helps new graduates transition into practice. When not practicing, Robbie enjoys cycling, spending time with his family and training his dog “Sunny-Boy”.

Dr Alex Harvey

Dr Alex Harvey

Upon meeting Dr Alex you will instantly see his true enthusiasm and excitement towards Chiropractics. Alex has vast experience at practices across Melbourne, having worked in Bundoora, St Kilda, Pakenham and Hoppers Crossing. Dr Alex was unfortunately a emergency Chiropractic patient himself when growing up. Being an avid Golfer, one sunday night he strained his back hitting golf balls on the range. Unsure if his Chiropractor would answer, he tried his luck.

Within an hour he was booked in and getting the treatment he needed. This instant treatment allowed Dr Alex to be back on the golf course the following weekend playing Pennant for Torquay Golf club.

Dr Alex’s ability to work under pressure situations has stemmed from his experience working with sporting clubs and athletes around Australia. He was picked as Chiropractor for the World Duathalon Championships in 2015 and has given his time to several Football Clubs around Melbourne, mainly the Essendon Doutta Stars in the EDFL. It was from these clubs his passion and commitment  for emergency Chiropractic situations truly developed and now he gets true satisfaction from helping patients that suffer from conditions such as: Low Back Pain, Sciatica, Headaches, Fibromyalgia, Sports Rehabilitation, Chronic Pain, Acute Pain, Disc Injuries and many more.
