Let Us Help You Get Your HEALTHY BACK!

Our chiropractic practice has been delivering safe, gentle and effective Chiropractic care to the Illawarra since 1994.

We’d love to share with you about our thousands of success stories but unfortunately health practitioners in Australia are no longer able to share customer testimonials.

Instead here’s a bit about our amazing chiropractors.

Dr Grant Bond — Chiropractor

Grant Bond Hi there, I’m Dr Bond (Bondy to my friends), the owner here at The Back Dr.  I’m a chiropractor, business owner, father, weekend warrior bike rider and all round lover of life. If you’re experiencing back pain, feeling older than your age or if you looking for guidance on how to look good, feel great & function better, then you sound like someone I’d love to work with.I’ve been a Chiropractor now for 24 years…ouch, that went fast.I know this might sound like a cliche but I really just love helping people with cranky backs.  It makes my heart smile (and after 24 years of practice I’m getting pretty good too).Over the past 24 years I’ve worked with many famous athletes that you’d know, but mostly I just love working normal people (elite athletes are really high maintenance). And..I know what it’s like to have pain.  13 years ago I broke my neck surfing, lucky for me it didn't damage the spinal cord so my body was able to heal.  It was one of the most difficult and humbling experiences of my life.You should also know that when it come to health care I’m a bit of a “greenie”.  I think less is more, I’m not a fan of drugs or surgery and I think the best doctor in the world is actually the one inside of you. You should also know that I can’t say no to my wife's amazing Portuguese cooking!
