Brent Gordon is a registered chiropractor and osteopath who completed a Bachelor of Medical Science (Honours) at the University of Sydney (1995), achieving the highest mark in his year, and Master of Chiropractic at Macquarie University (1997). Brent is one of a small number of Australians who holds the qualifications of a Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Neurology Board (DACNB) following extensive training and examinations in Chiropractic Functional Neurology and Chiropractic Neuro-rehabilitation by the Carrick Institute. He is a Fellow of the Australasian Academy of Functional Neurology (AAFN). He has a special research interest in the applied neurosciences and has lectured in Chiropractic Neurological Diagnosis and Pre-clinical studies at Macquarie University over 12 years.
He has published numerous papers in peer-reviewed journals and has received many awards including for Radiology, Academic Excellence, human cadaver dissection and even has the title Prosector. Brent developed Spinal Vision’s Virtual Spinal Care Class, the in-house education programme that is playing in the waiting room, and in those of other chiropractic practices in Australia and around the world.
Brent has offered individualised chiropractic care to the community for over 15 years. In addition to this he has treated various Australian Cricket players, Australian Ballet performers, American Baseballers, Olympic level athletes and triathletes, Ironmen, Tennis players and Marathon runners. Brent travelled extensively with Ana Ivanovic, former World No. 1 Serbian tennis player, for 4 years and was involved with major events such as the Australian Open, Beijing Olympics, the US Open, French Open, training facilities in Mallorca (Spain), and Los Angeles Women’s Tennis Championships.
When Brent is not looking after athletes, he particularly enjoys looking after young families and helping parents solve their concerns about the physical development of their baby or children. He sees many children for plagiocephaly ("flat head syndrome") and other cranial issues. He is available at both the Crows Nest and Norwest practices.
