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.
Your Chiropractic Assistant Caroline has a background in customer management and natural skin therapy. Caroline welcomes all clients to the centre with her warm smile and a genuine desire to care for you.
As a busy working mum, Caroline knows the importance of maintaining good health and is excited to be working in a team dedicated to assisting our clients to live well.
Caroline and her husband have two beautiful children and are local to the area. They enjoy a healthy outdoor lifestyle and love nothing better than packing up the car for a fun family camping trip. “I love living in a city that has something to offer each day. It is a friendly place and a wonderful environment to raise our family.”
Your Chiropractic Assistant Allison has a sweet tooth and plenty of creative flair, so when she is not welcoming you with a friendly smile, she is making wedding cakes and desserts for the brides of Newcastle. With so much chocolate in her life, she is very conscious of making sensible decisions regarding her health and diet.
Allison grew up in the small town of Wauchope and came to Newcastle to attend University. “I came to study and thought I’d then move on, but I loved Newcastle so much I didn’t want to leave. Why would you want to live anywhere else?”
Allison and her husband are blessed with four beautiful boys, so their home is full of fun and laughter. They are a soccer loving family and spend most of their weekends at Sports Fields or parks. They also love the water and love to spend time together at the beach or the bay.
