Growing up in Melbourne’s east Martin and his family were frequent visitors to local Chiropractors, so it was no surprise when Martin chose to become a Chiropractor. Martin and Nicole started Whitehorse Family Chiropractic in Box Hill in 1996.

“People often ask me if I like being a Chiropractor – the truth is I love it! I like the people (patients), I like the work (interesting and challenging) but most of all I like being a Chiropractor because it works so well. Over the past 16 years in Box Hill, we’ve had literally thousands of people come in to see us with all sorts of severe problems or chronic problems they’ve suffered from for decades. Almost no matter what problems people walk through our door with, we’ve mostly been able to help them quickly and effectively and have them feeling significantly better and back enjoying life. It’s nice to be able to help so many people so effectively”.

When Martin is not at work, he is often seen cheering on his beloved Collingwood Magpies at the MCG, searching for his lost golf balls at a local course, and more recently, taking his son, Max, to his Karate lessons.

Nicole established her first Chiropractic practice in Ringwood in 1995, winner of a Small Business Victoria award, and 3 years later began practicing together with husband Martin in Box Hill establishing Whitehorse Family Chiropractic.

 Being established in Box Hill so long gives you a great sense of looking after a community. Nicole grew up in Whitehorse, went to school in Vermont, and their son Max has just started school at Laburnum. She always wanted to create a Chiropractic practice that this area could look to for exceptional Chiropractic care. “We have helped so many people in this area, people of all ages”. “One family I have in my office has 4 generations, and I’m pleased to say I’ve cared for them all. Through babies, and pregnancies, kids sports and calisthenics’ back flips, injuries lifting at work and golf, right up to the ageing grandparents. It’s the most rewarding part of practice being able to help families through whatever they need through their lifetime.”

 Nicole also focuses time to speaking to the community to educate the public on Chiropractic, how effective and gentle chiropractic can be, and how much it can help. “Too often people wish they could turn back the clock, or don’t know where to go to get help, and chiropractic is so often the answer. Every day we help people feel great who didn’t know what to do. I wish everyone knew ‘Chiropractic works!’ ”.

 “Chiropractic is not like the old days when people were a bit afraid to try it. These days we have gentler techniques, we use the same techniques on babies as we do on adults. It’s a big compliment that families will drive an hour and a half to see you for the quality of care you provide.”

When Dr Keegan is not busy helping people with their health needs, you will find her at Netball. Coaching for Netball Victoria, the Victorian 17/U State Team, and Boroondara Genesis’s VNL Championship Team, keeps her on the go! But there’s still time to enjoy building lego with son Max, and some fun at cardio tennis with friends.

Whitehorse Family Chiropractic has been voted a finalist 3 times in the Leader Newspaper Business Awards by the city of Whitehorse.
