Dynamic Chiropractic: About Us
Dynamic Chiropractic was born of humble beginnings. When Dr Sheridan Kay and now husband, Dr David Kay moved thier lives from Australia for David to Study Chiropractic at the NZCC, they needed somewhere to builld from. A inconspicuous sign “FOR RENT” was barely visible in the front Remuera of the beautiful Californian Bungalow at 649 Remuera Rd. On a wing and a prayer, we borrowed the money for a New Xray machine, bought used office furniture and a solitary front desk computer. David would offer massage while he was training and Sheridan would spend hours, often just waiting for the phone to ring. That was 20 years ago!
Since then, we now own the office, have 3 full time Chiropractors and 4 support staff. Dynamic has evolved into a local leader in Natural and holistic healthcare. Both Drs David and Sheridan offer very unique yet complimentary techniques to memebers of our community. Sheridan is the ultimate family Chiropractor. An Emapthetic yet incredibly strong willed passionate person gets fulfillment but caring for every member of the family. From pre conception care to the elderly. Budding athletes to Dad needing to improve his golf swing. Dr David Kay was more the engine room. He was devoted to understanding complex conditions. A Mechanist of the spine addressing Headaches, disc injuries, lower back problems and long term correction of chronic problmes. He also has the strength to get even the most stubborn patients some meaningful relief.
Originally from Wodonga Victoria, Sheridan comes from a “dynasty” of chiropractors. David’s father is a General Practitioner from Albury and became the 5th Chiropractor in his family.
We still have on-site Digital Xray and have evolved with flexible hours, allowing as many people as possible to receive the exemplary healthcare we envisioned providing. With the professionalism and consistent refinement of the most beneficial Chiropractic Techniques, including Thompson Technique, Gonstead, Diversified, Flexion Distraction, Pregnancy and Y-Strap, our team are sure to find a way to make you feel and function your best.
