Dr Jayden Armstrong is passionate about seeing people achieve their health goals and function at their best daily.

Jayden’s approach to patient care is through the treatment and prevention of complaints without the use of drugs and surgery, but rather optimising the function of the spine and nervous system while encouraging the body back to health through correct diet, exercise and lifestyle choices. 

 

Away from the clinic, Jayden enjoys being active through running and playing basketball, along with spending quality time with his family and friends. He also volunteers his time as an Assistant Sports Trainer for Lakeside Lightning who play within the State Basketball League.

This has lead him to treat a variety of athletes, ranging from bodybuilders to international dirt bike racers.  With the growing number of patients experiencing complaints relating to ergonomics and posture Dr Kevin has developed a special interest in assisting with these issues.

Dr Kevin believes in a collaborative approach working with the patient together to achieve their goals using a variety of treatment options. These treatment options include chiropractic manipulations and mobilizations, Graston, dry needling, and soft tissue therapies.
