Dr Darren Leukefeld

Chiropractor Bachelor of Applied Science, Bachelor of Chiropractic Science

Darren’s approach to Chiropractic involves identifying strategies that will benefit the long term health of his patients. He values creating long term relationships with his patients and working together to prevent pain and disease. This ensures his patients receive an outstanding level of care.

Darren graduated from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in 2004 and immediately started private practise in Sydney Australia. He is a proud member of the Chiropractic Association of Australia as well as the International Chiropractic Paediatric Association.

Since completing his double degree, Darren has spent considerable time focussing on structural rehabilitation of the spine. This technique is called Chiropractic biophysics (CBP).

The focus of CBP is to help restore an individual’s spine and posture to a healthy state called the Ideal Spine. The rehabilitation reduces the stress on the body protecting an individual from pain and arthritis. Darren advocates spinal check ups of the entire family as many spinal disorders are hereditary and therefore shared throughout the whole family.

Darren also incorporates the Webster Technique when assessing and treating pregnant women.

Bachelor of Applied Science (Physiotherapy), Graduate Diploma in Rehabilitation Counseling

Helen has always been passionate about helping people and from an early age developed a strong interest in the workings of the human body and mind.

This led Helen to start a career in Physiotherapy, which soon transitioned to Rehabilitation - where she focused on helping people with injuries, mental health issues and disabilities regain their quality of life and return to work.

Now as the Clinic Manager and head of patient care, Helen applies her knowledge of anatomy and physiology to guide patients through their exercise programs and provide holistic health advice and support.

Helen has also led the introduction of the free Orthotics foot scanning service to the Clinic for new and existing patients. This has seen North Shore Family Chiropractors become the number one provider of orthotics scans and advice in Australia for Foot Levelers.
