About Cornerstone Chiropractic

Cornerstone Chiropractic Centre in Boronia provides chiropractic care to help restore your body’s balance and function. We aim to help you feel good and move well, through treatment that’s comfortable for you.

You’ll likely find Dr Deb different to other chiropractors you’ve seen – in a good way! Or, if you’re new to chiropractic care, we hope you’ll discover that it’s broader and gentler than what you might expect – great for injuries, neck pain, back pain and headaches but also for improved health and vitality overall.

At Cornerstone, you’re our absolute priority. Dr Deb will thoroughly consider your unique circumstances to provide treatment recommendations truly tailored to you. She’ll listen closely, explains things clearly, and always treat your body with respect.

Who we see

Dr Deb loves helping people feel, move and function better, whether they’re young or young at heart. After developing a detailed understanding of a patient’s needs, she’ll apply low-force chiropractic techniques that make her treatments accessible to a wide range of patients, including families, the elderly, and those in highly physical jobs. As she puts it, “if you’re experiencing pain, starting to think that being older means you can’t do the things you love, or if you’re looking for guidance on how to feel good and move well, you sound like someone I’d love to work with.”

What to expect

At Cornerstone, you can expect professional, courteous care and advice. We’ll chat with you about your history and conduct a thorough, respectful examination, clearly explaining what we are doing and finding. We’ll look at issues from several angles to determine their root causes, and, if appropriate, make a carefully considered treatment recommendation. This might include applying different techniques to help with your specific health concerns, or referring you to another health practitioner if that will get you the best outcome.

Our promise

We promise to respect your unique circumstances and preferences, as well as your body, time and privacy. We’ll listen closely, answer your questions and clearly explain our techniques and findings as we go. We’ll offer choices and respect your decisions. We’ll thoroughly consider any treatment recommendations, and be a place to get well and get good advice. Finally, we hope to also provide you with hope, because with a renewed nervous system, so much more might again be possible in your life.

About Dr Deb

BChiro&Sc, BAppSc (Clinical Sc), CertAK
Member Australian Chiropractors Association
Certified Applied Kinesiology

Hello! I’m Dr Deb, the owner at Cornerstone Chiropractic Centre. I’m a chiropractor, business owner, mother, native gardener, chocolate lover, table-top gamer, outdoor lover, 4WDer and wanna-be fisherwoman.

If you’re experiencing back pain, starting to think that being older means you can’t do the things you love or if you’re looking for guidance on how to feel good, move well and look good, then you sound like someone I’d love to work with! I’ve been a chiropractor for over 18 years and I can’t imagine doing anything else. I love helping people feel, move and be better, whether they are young or young at heart.

My journey to studying and becoming a chiropractor started when I sought chiropractic care as a young mum. You know – back pain is part of the being a mum, right? I quickly came to understand that having my nervous system running in tip-top condition meant I could move better, improve the quality of my life and be a better partner and mum because I wasn't in pain. The light-bulb moment for me was when my chiropractor found something wrong in my daughter – something the doctor and paediatrician couldn’t find. And my kids have had chiropractic care since. They are now vibrant, healthy and rarely sick.

Working with the body is a fascinating thing. I’ve come to realise that less is more and you don’t need to be forceful or heavy-handed to make profound changes. I use gentle techniques to help people get better. I’m also certified in Applied Kinesiology. So, I use muscle testing to assess your nervous system function and find a solution to your health concerns.

So if you’re in pain, sick of a bandaid approach or just want to function better, then please get in touch to book an appointment.

How we can help

We use gentle chiropractic techniques to help you move, feel and function better. To work out which technique will likely be best for you, we’ll use a range of strategies. We’ll look at the whole picture of your life – including its structural, chemical and emotional aspects – as well as your individual goals and preferences. Our aim is always to find and treat the underlying cause of any issue rather than just its symptoms.

Applied Kinesiology (AK)

Applied Kinesiology is a muscle-testing technique used to assess your nervous system and find what might be causing your health concerns. It helps us quickly determine what chiropractic treatment might work best for your body. Professional Applied Kinesiologists – like Dr Deb – are health practitioners who have undergone extensive training and certification in the skills of Applied Kinesiology.

Retained Neonatal Reflexes (RNR)

Neonatal reflexes are the automatic reflexes a baby is born with. Necessary for early development and survival, they reduce as the brain develops. Sometimes though, things like birth trauma or stress can cause these reflexes to be retained, which can lead to developmental, social, behavioural or learning issues in children and adults. In short, it can diminish a person’s potential. We apply the RNR technique – involving gentle pressure applied to specific points on the skull and body with accompanying breathing techniques – to help the nervous system integrate these reflexes and restore your brain’s ability to effectively communicate with your body.

Neuro Emotional Technique (NET)

Stress responses such as fear, anger and grief can sometimes negatively affect us well after the stressful event, through headaches, body pains, phobias, anxiety, or self-sabotaging behaviours. NET is a gentle, safe, effective and natural technique that we use to help locate and let go of ‘stuck’ mind-body stress patterns and provide relief from unresolved stress. The technique usually involves a specific physical correction, such as a pulse or spinal correction, while you remember an event in which the stress originally occurred.
