Dr Deanne Spranklin (Chiropractor)
Dr Deanne Spranklin always found herself having a keen interest in health and wellness and a desire to help people become and remain healthy. Deanne was inspired to study Chiropractic whilst learning about the Chiropractic philosophy of allowing the body to heal itself by removing any interference.
Deanne graduated from Macquarie University with a Bachelor of Chiropractic Science and a Masters of Chiropractic. The Editorial Board of the Chiropractic Journal of Australia awarded Deanne the prestigious “Research paper of the year” in 2007 for outstanding contribution to Chiropractic literature in 2006. During her university studies, she developed a passion for the Gonstead system of chiropractic and has attended many seminars to further her adjusting skills and knowledge of this system.
Along with her expertise in spinal health, Deanne has undertaken post-graduate study in pregnancy and paediatric Chiropractic care and is proficient in cranial work for children as well as specific techniques for expectant mothers.
Following 9 years of private practice in Newcastle and Brisbane, Deanne founded Cracknell Chiropractic in the south Brisbane suburb of Wellers Hill. Dr Spranklin is inspired to help people live to their full potential by providing Chiropractic care for the whole family.
Outside of office hours, Deanne enjoys surfing, cooking, travelling and continuing her volunteer work for The Boona Baana Centre for Children’s Rights, an orphanage in Tanzania. Each December on “Green Door Day” Deanne donates her adjustment fees to these Tanzanian children and we enjoy a fun day with a sausage sizzle, raffle and prizes.
