Meet Dr Lyndon Andre
My name is Lyndon Andre, I was born in Perth, Western Australia but I lived in a small country town called Kuching in Malaysia for 7 years. I moved back to Perth when I was 8 years old and have lived here until the end of my University studies.
In 2011, I started my Chiropractic journey at Murdoch University after coming to the realization about the benefits of manual therapies and their part to play in health care from young elite athletes to the older aging population. The attainment of my Bachelor of Science in Chiropractic gave me the ability to interpret current research. It has allowed me to discover how correct posture and a healthy spine can not only help with spinal pain, but also aid in the management of other problems such as shoulder pain and headaches.
During the end of my 4th year of studies, I was a part of a select few in the Chiropractic course to travel to India as part of the “Hands-On India 2014” group, to treat the “Untouchables” which is one of the poorest populations in India. There, we not only had the opportunity to help manage musculoskeletal complaints of the community, but we also had the chance to raise funds to send children to school and promote women’s empowerment groups. These groups support women who suffer from social injustice and inequality, so they are able to better provide for themselves and their families.
At the start of 2016, I finished the practical component of my Chiropractic degree with the help of the many professionals who I learnt from including Chiropractors, Medical Doctors, and a Radiographer. I graduated later on that year with a Bachelor of Science (Chiropractic) and Bachelor of Chiropractic.
I worked in Christchurch, New Zealand for 2 years and 8 months after graduating. After seeing many patients and observing the inner workings of a Chiropractic Clinic, I came home to Perth to help people here.
I am passionate about pain relief and function in patients with a particular interest in shoulder dysfunction, superficial nerve entrapments and rehabilitation. As a Chiropractor I am well experienced in seeing patients with spinal and musculo-skeletal pain and use techniques such as manual diversified adjusting techniques/spinal manipulation, soft tissue therapies, drop piece, activator, bio-mechanical blocking and dry needling. Through passive care I am able to help patients manage their spinal pain during the flare ups and through education and advice, help the patient look after themselves at home to prevent re-occurrences of their pain, increase their function and to reach their short- and long-term goals.
Outside of practice, my hobbies include going to the gym, reading, drawing, painting and walking the Βibbulmun Track.
