I discovered chiropractic as a child and have been fascinated with its application ever since. I graduated Murdoch University with a Double Degree in 2006 and registered as a chiropractor. In my early years of practice I spent a lot of time on the sides of sporting fields. I finished my International Chiropractic Sports Science Diploma in 2007 and worked many international level sports events. In the end I found my work in my practice to be the most rewarding and have always enjoyed seeing families and helping people of all ages with their health, not just performance athletes.
Duncraig Chiropractic started up after I suffered some serious injuries from a motorcycle accident and I had enough downtime to investigate some opportunities. I’ve never looked back. We are now a one stop shop when it comes to chiropractic services, with multiple treatment rooms and state of the art x-ray facilities being installed during a major renovation in 2012.
I served as a Director on the board for the Chiropractic Association of Australia (Western Australia) from 2012 to 2018. I held the position of Treasurer from 2012-2017 and finished my time with the company as President in 2018. I am now involved in the new company representing chiropractors in Australia, The Australian Chiropractors Association. I sit on both the Western Regional Committee and the Public Engagement Committee. Chiropractic is under utilized in healthcare in Australia, and I work in these roles to help make our service available to more Australians who need it.
My practice is known for our focus and excellence in Advanced Bio-Structural Correction or ABC – our main adjusting technique. Each year we host the seminars for ABC here in Western Australia to help train more chiropractors in this technique.
I’m always searching for new ways to help improve the lives of my clients and recently I discovered the benefits of cold laser therapy and purchased a very exciting piece of technology from Canada. The Bioflex Laser therapy machine is now operational and helping musculoskeletal conditions with remarkable results.
In my time off I enjoy spending time with my family, my wife Brooke and my daughter Indiana. If I manage to sneak away I love a round of golf or a spin on my the bike!
Meet Dr Dave Hawkes
I work with people who desperately want to get their health on track, but just don’t know how or where to get started. I give them the tools to get exactly what they want, which is more energy, less pain, and a much more extraordinary life, not just for themselves, but for their whole family.
A lot of people that walk through our doors have some kind of ache or pain that they’re struggling with – and while it’s satisfying to help people overcome that struggle through chiropractic care, my real joy comes from watching my patients experience the SIDE EFFECTS of chiropractic care i.e. more energy, better sleep, better digestion and less stress.
I graduated with distinction from Murdoch University in 2013 and since then I’ve worked in private practices in Australia and Canada. When I’m not delivering world class chiropractic care and speaking at public and corporate events, you’ll find me training in Muay Thai or Brazilian Jiu Jitsu; or on the couch with a hot cup of coffee and a good book.
I love to travel, and have made trips to different parts of Australia, Indonesia, Thailand, India, Spain, Germany and the UK. I’ve also spent the last 4 years living and working abroad, in Canada. I’ve been working closely with Dr Mike Gibson, one of the creators of Life By Design at one of the flagship offices in Ottawa. It was a fantastic opportunity to learn and grow as a person and as a chiropractor, and now I’m excited to be ready for a new challenge at Duncraig Chiropractic.
Meet Ben – Massage Therapist
Benjamin has always had a passion for sport, the human body, function and mobility and it became reality when he commenced the Diploma of Remedial Massage Therapy at Central Institute of Technology in 2010. After the completion of the course two years later in 2012 Benjamin found work in the industry where working alongside Chiropractors, Occupational Therapists, Podiatrists and Naturopaths led to the temptation of learning more.
In 2013, Benjamin began his Bachelor of Health Science (Exercise, Sport and Rehabilitation Science) at Curtin University. Complementing his studies with present knowledge Benjamin uses his further skills to advance his treatments towards clients incorporating soft tissue manipulation and educating clients on mobility and strength.
Rehabilitation and prevention is what excites Benjamin most leading to the completion of the Graduate Diploma of Clinical Exercise Physiology at Notre Dame University in 2016.
Benjamin enjoys getting out of the clinic and working events every now and then to promote health, perform massage and educate people on how they can prevent injury and maintain optimum performance.
Currently Benjamin works as a Strength and Conditioning coach at Kingsway A-grade Amateur Football Club dealing with the Development and fitness of the League squad, while overseeing the entire club. Ben also works as a Sports Therapist for the Perth Wildcats, Perth Lynx, Perth Glory (Men’s and Women’s teams) and The Western Force while also working on travelling teams in the AFL, AFLW, NBL and A-League.
In his spare time Benjamin loves to spend time with his family and friends as well as keeping up with all things sports while enjoying the outdoors.
Meet Katrina – Massage Therapist
Katrina graduated with a diploma in Remedial Massage Therapy from Evolve College. She is currently studying Chiropractic Science at Murdoch University to further her understanding and knowledge.
She believes that remedial massage is not just for sports injuries, but also for those everyday aches and pains that are holding you back.

Meet the Practice Manager – Lisa
My first experience with Duncraig Chiropractic was in 2011 as a client of Dr Josh. Then in 2012, I started in the position of Chiropractic Assistant and absolutely love what I do. My job is to keep the practice running smoothly and efficiently while helping the chiropractors in the day to day operations. There is a great deal of job satisfaction that comes with seeing our clients getting back on track and able to function better on a daily basis.
I have recently rediscovered my love of art and started painting again. This is now become more than a hobby and I often resemble a smurf after a weekend painting session. Keep your eye out in the practice and you will see my workM
