Alister Harley is an experienced chiropractor, having spent the past three years working in a paediatric chiropractic practice in Hawthorn East and another year working with adults and sports people. Having played a lot of sport throughout his teen years and with a strong background in functional training, the necessity of movement therapy and exercise has become a major component of his clinical practice, as he works to not only treat pain but to find the underlying cause of dysfunction.

Who does Alister care for?

Alister provides care for families, kids, athletes and the elderly. He has a strong practice interest in treating acute and chronic pain, injury prevention, sports chiropractic care and performance optimisation.

Alister has progressed his knowledge further by completing a number of post university courses including a Diplomate of Chiropractic Neuro-developmental Paediatrics and Functional Neuro-Orthopedic Rehabilitation (FNOR) seminars.

He is also a Level 2 CrossFit Coach and a part owner at Forge Athletic, a strength and conditioning gym in Melbourne. Alister encourages his clients to be an active part in working towards their health goals where possible.

“Health is a byproduct of good habits. How your body works is very complex, but what it needs to work well is simple.”
