Dr. Luke Nisbett

Chiropractor (BChiroSc, MChiro, Cert. Musculoskeletal Acupuncure, Trigenics® Pr.)

Luke grew up on in St. Ives on the North Shore and has been very close to the Northern Beaches for most of his life. Luke has spent many years playing sport at Avalon, Newport and Warriewood. Luke has always been interested in the human body, health and healing. Now living in Manly, working in Mona Vale was an easy decision as he loves the similar community, active lifestyle, and see’s great potential for Chiropractic growth. Rugby would be Luke’s no.1 sport as he has played his whole life and has recently been appointed Head Coach at Chatswood Rugby Club. 

Luke’s passion is helping athletes of all levels to reach their potential by including a thorough assessment of their biomechanics and injury screening to ensure optimal performance and recovery. He is currently completing research at Macquarie University, trialling the effect of manual adjustments on the biomechanics of the Australian Kayaking Squad. He is also in the process of completing the International Diploma of Sports Chiropractic with further ambitions to manage athletes at the Olympic and World Games.    

Luke believes that an active lifestyle is the key to overall health and this is how he approaches his management, aiming to help his clients to become as active as they want to be through functional movement and nutrition. Being a qualified massage therapist and musculoskeletal acupuncturist means Luke incorporates many different soft tissue and dry needling techniques with the more manual chiropractic techniques such as diversified, gonstead, activator and Trigenics, to create enjoyable treatments and amazing results. These hands on treatments are combined with appropriate functional training, spinal rehabilitation, nutritional and lifestyle advice. X-rays are also taken and examined where necessary. Its important to Luke that his clients have an active care plan to achieve a multimodal, evidence based approach, ensuring they get the best possible outcome for their investment.
