Family Life’s founder and principle Chiropractor, Dr David Diehm has been serving the Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and Hunter communities for over 11 years. David has a deep passion for listening, understanding, and helping people with their health. When this is combined with his experience and knowledge of the spine and nervous system you can be confident both yourself and your family are in great hands.

After Graduating from Macquarie University, with a Bachelor of Chiropractic Science and a Masters of Chiropractic, David found his way to Newcastle with his wife Kathryn. A country boy at heart, the area had instant appeal!

“As we welcome our second child into the world, we have both reflected on our journey into parenthood and feel we owe a deep sense of gratitude to what chiropractic has been able to offer to the health of our own family. With this realisation and our mutual passion for healthy lifestyle choices, Family Life Chiropractic was born. Our center is driven by our desire to share our passion for chiropractic, a healthy spine and nervous system, so other families can benefit in the way we have. We believe healthy families can create a healthy community”.

We understand a health concern can be a stressful event, particularly in a busy family environment. There is often confusion, uncertainty and sometimes, the feeling no one is listening. We pride ourselves on an approach that takes the time to understand your concerns, we are comprehensive in our examination and welcome a dialogue that allows you to understand very clearly what we are finding.

Support and empowerment are two vital elements you and your family will receive from us. Health is a journey and we wish to provide an environment that is friendly and professional while you experience and enjoy the benefits of Chiropractic care.

It would be a pleasure to share my knowledge of the spine and nervous system with you.
