"For You, Completely"

What is chiropractic?

After 5 years of university and clinical training, Chiropractors understand and work to maintain the central nervous system and spine.  They maintain and improve spinal health and aim to help people recover from various injuries and pain, naturally.

Picture the spine, a column of stacked vertebrae and cartilage. When the column finds itself out of alignment, chiropractic adjustments aim to reduce pain and increased normal mobility and function by restoring correct movement pattens to the spine and joints.  Various techniques, both manual and instrument assisted, can be used depending on the individual and your needs and comfort.


Common conditions that Birkdale Chiropractic can manage:







Headache & migraines



Extremity pain



Joint pain & dysfunction



Scoliosis management



Sports injuries




Let’s start with a complimentary consultation with the Chiropractor to see if we can help. If not, we’ll let you know who can.



  • This offer is an opportunity for new patients to find out the cause of your condition and to see if chiropractic care can help.
  • If you decide that you would like to preoceed with treatment, our initial consultation fee will apply.
  • There is no obligation to begin treatment.
  • Chiropractic treatment will only commence where there is informed consent from the patient and there is reasonable clinical indication that treatment will be beneficial.


At Birkdale Chiropractic, we want more for you than to simply adjust your symptoms. We want to know you and what you need. If we can grow with you and understand you, we can treat you better, fully and effectively. With our association with Assist Allied Health and our network of allied health professionals, our mission is to improve your life and health through understanding and caring.

About Me

Dr Sarah Young (Chiropractor) had her first chiropractic treatment when she was 11 years old.  For most of her childhood, she had chronic sinus, allergies and headaches.  It affected her schooling and ability to play sport.  The hospital called her “the happy little wheezer” and she was on an array of medications. In desperation, her parents were referred by a family friend to the local chiropractor.  It was the only thing that they had not tried.  After treatment, her health improved, she was taken off all medication and thrived.  She continued chiropractic care and it became a lifelong goal to become a chiropractor.

Dr Sarah Young (Chiropractor) holds a Masters of Clinical Chiropractic and a Bachelor of Science degree in both Chiropractic and Biomedicine from Central Queensland University.  Sarah enjoys working with people from all walks of life and has a strong interest in women’s health and treating families.

Now Sarah is starting her own practice at Birkdale Chiropractic, catering to a wide range of individuals, families and their various needs.  She uses a wide variety of techniques to ensure that she creates long-lasting changes and improvements in all her patients.

What to expect at Birkdale Chiropractic

Coming to see a chiropractor can be daunting, especially when it is your first time.  Once you have made your booking for a time that suits you, an email will be sent to confirm your time and answer any questions you may have.  In order to help you the best way we can, you will be asked to fill out some basic, initial paperwork.  This will outline your current problem, past health conditions and profile. This will be emailed to you in your Welcome to Medela Chiropractic and Appointment Confirmation email

Step 1 - Initial appointment

To give you the best care, we must find if chiropractic is the right choice for you.  A complete history is taken where we listen to you and determine your health care goals.

Our priority is to make you feel understood.

If in consulting with you we believe that chiropractic can help, then a physical examination will take place.  However, if we feel that your situation would be better managed elsewhere, we will never be afraid to refer you to the right person to help.

Step 2 - Examination

To establish a complete picture of your current problem, a comprehensive exam is performed.  This will include chiropractic, neurological, orthopaedic and musculoskeletal testing where, depending on your case, X-rays maybe requested.  X-rays are conducted offsite and bulk billed through Medicare.

The cause of pain is not always where the pain itself is, and so we will examine the body as a whole and not just where you are in pain.

Once the examination is finished, the findings will be explained in a way easy to understand.  Any questions will be answered so that you have a full understanding of what your body is experiencing.

Step 3 - Treatment Recommendations

Your condition will be explained in further detail and a personalised treatment plan is presented to get you feeling and functioning better.  Testing results, treatment options, recovery times and costing will all be explained.

Step 4 - the 1st adjustment

After the assessment and if in consultation with you we consider it appropriate, you will be adjusted.  The appropriate technique will be chosen depending on you, your comfort and preferences and the assessed condition you are experiencing.

Step 5 - Review of treatment progress

To make sure that your condition is improving, we perform a reassessment at regular intervals.  This enables us to continue to tailor your treatment to reach your goals.


EPC and DVA referral accepted.
