Timothy Paynter, Chiropractor

Tim began his health and fitness career by studying a Bachelor of Sport and Exercise Science at the University of Western Sydney. He choose this career path due to his passion for fitness, health and sports especially karate, rock climbing, weightlifting and powerlifting. After completing his bachelor degree he worked in the health and fitness industry whilst completing his honours year focused on research into “Prolonged standing in non-specific chronic low back pain patients”.

In the early years of his career Tim met a lot of people in pain with poor biomechanics that needed help. He found that although exercise often made a drastic change to a person’s symptoms, it did not always address the underlying issue and generally the problem would recur. He decided that he needed a more hands-on approach to achieve the structural and functional change necessary and subsequently enrolled in Chiropractic at Macquarie University.

During his time at Macquarie University Tim developed a keen interest in the nervous system and its disorders including balance and dizziness problems. This led him to further study in this field via the Carrick Institute of Clinical Neuroscience course which he completed in 2017. Upon completion of the course Tim sat for and completed his board exams for the American Chiropractic Neurology Board. He is now studying neurorehabilitation in the presence of underlying diseases such as neurodegeneration, chronic inflammation and autoimmunity. Tim also has a keen interest in complementary therapies including low level laser therapy.

Tim tailors his treatment to the individual patient combining both his extensive knowledge of evidence based exercise rehabilitation and chiropractic techniques. He aims to get to the bottom of his patient’s symptoms and provide them with the tools and understanding to prevent further injuries in the future.
