Point Cook and South Yarra Chiropractor Dr. Brian Resurreccion

Chiropractor Dr Brian’s passion for health and fitness stemmed early in his years competing in various sports such as basketball, volleyball, athletics and swimming at club and at university levels. He completed his Bachelor of Applied Science in Human Movement with studies focusing on biomechanics, rehabilitation, exercise prescription and nutrition. He has over 10 years experience as a Fitness Advisor and Personal Trainer working in various fitness centres around Melbourne.

In this time he furthered his studies in chiropractic gaining a double degree in Clinical Science and Chiropractic Science. In his eight years of full time study, Brian covered professional courses including anatomy, physiology, radiology, pathology, diagnosis and other sciences but he lists biomechanics, radiology, neurology and clinical skills among his favourites

After graduating from RMIT University he worked in various Chiropractic Clinics around Melbourne before settling in Point Cook. “Each year,” continues Brian, “I enjoy attending various seminars and workshops to keep up with the latest in research and developments in the chiropractic profession.”

There is a strong sense of community in our practice. As a local resident of Point Cook himself of over 15 years, he has seen the area blossom and has enjoyed being a source of quality natural health care over the years.

He has special interest in Sports Chiropractic as well as Paediatric Chiropractic and takes great joy in assisting these groups. He has attained an advanced training in Sports Chiropractic gaining his International Chiropractic Sports Science Diploma which allows him to treat at international sporting events such as the Olympic Games and World Games. He has completed advanced studies in Paediatric Chiropractic.

“We love sceptics,” says Brian. “I still remember the concerns and apprehension I had when I went to the chiropractor for the first time. So we make it a point to explain everything in advance, answer questions and attempt to over communicate. Patients appreciate that.”

Brian is married to Dr Fabiola, who has many roles at the practice. They work tremendously well as a team and their patients really appreciate the personal attention they receive at the practice.

Brian and Fabiola are great proponents of healthy living and when not joyfully caring for their patients, they can often be found exercising at the local gym, jogging in the streets or walking their dog. They understand that health is a lifestyle choice.

Point Cook Chiropractor: Dr Tyler Loxley

Dr. Tyler Loxley, Chiropractor

Dr. Tyler Loxley
Chiropractor

Dr Tyler relocated from the Sunshine Coast in South-east Queensland to follow his childhood dream of becoming a Chiropractor. After spending a large majority of his teenage life playing soccer at a high level he experienced many of the issues most growing athletes do. After a suggestion from a family friend he saw a Chiropractor for a groin injury that was not subsiding. The impressive technique and effective treatment of this injury planted the seed into his subconscious and over the years this grew into an overwhelming passion.

After showing interest in the New Zealand College of Chiropractic (NZCC) at the age of 14 he was accepted and the plan was set in stone. Due to unforeseen circumstances this plan never came to fruition. Disappointed, he gathered his wits and applied for the Melbourne based Chiropractic course at RMIT. Five years and a gap year later he graduated at the tail-end of 2019 with a Bachelor of Health Science/Bachelor of Applied Science (Chiropractic).

Dr Tyler’s primary focus is on the prevention and maintenance of chronic posture-related issues. He believes in a thorough understanding of the importance of posture in combination with Chiropractic treatment and muscle rehabilitation. He has acquired the most up-to-date techniques based on what current research indicates are the most effective.
