Dr. Eric Hansen
Eric has a Bachelor of Chiropractic Science and Master of Chiropractic from Macquarie University. He is trained in Applied Kinesiology (AK), ABC™ (Advanced Biostructural Correction™) and Sports Chiropractic and is focussed on improving his patients’ performance.
Starting karate at the age of 10, he holds a black belt in weapons and a 3rd dan black belt in karate. Having successfully competed at a state level, he represented NSW for several years at a national level winning gold in team kata, silver in weapons kata and bronze in kumite (fighting).
Eric has a keen interest in sports, working closely with the Australian national karate team and many of his patients are competitors in tennis, golf, baseball, swimming and running.
Dr Hansen’s curiosity to understand how things work lead him into further studies in the field of Functional Neurology. Your brain is just like a muscle, but if this muscle gets weak through being overworked, underworked or traumatised it can have drastic impacts on your health. Common symptoms of a poor nervous system include:
- Poor attention/concentration
- Digestive issues
- Anxiety/ Depression
- Poor balance/ clumsy
- Poor emotional control
Poor brain function can be seen in toddlers and up, it’s never too early to get your brain checked.
Since starting at North Sydney Spine & Health in January 2008, he has loved every minute. One of his greatest success stories is the patient who first visited him experiencing severe migraines every 2 days. They were taking antidepressant and antiepileptic medication which were slowly destroying their kidneys and they had been on dialysis on 2 previous occasions. After ABC™ therapy they reported only the occasional headache with a slight migraine every few weeks. This improvement in symptoms has made a dramatic change to their quality of life.
Dr Bingley (Gladesville Mascot)
When you come into the clinic just follow Bingley! He knows which room you need to go to, he even walks you to your chair!
While he may not have a PhD like Dr Bailey (crows nest mascot) he can bark in 3 languages (prefers Latin) and he is currently learning Japanese although has trouble with the ‘R’ sound. Sometimes if he is in the mood he does an excellent Samuel Jackson impersonation. See if you can convince him.
Next time you see him at Spine & Health be sure to say hi and give him a pat!
