Summit Chiropractic and Health was established in Newtown Geelong in 2015. Our purpose has always been to serve and help the community through health care and Chiropractic.
Ben's first experience with Chiropractic care as a teenager was when he developed a knee injury. After seeing numerous sports physicians and allied health professionals he realized that chiropractic was exactly what he needed which is were his interest began.
However, Ben's passion for health and well being started well before he was a Chiropractor. Before qualifying from University with a Masters in Clinical Chiropractic he was a Personal Trainer focusing on not just general health and fitness, but a specific focus on Rehabilitation.
His experiences as a personal trainer motivated him to try CrossFit and to become a Sports Chiropractor. Ben continues to learn and grow as a Chiropractor by always learning new techniques to better assess, diagnose and treat various performance limitations and restrictions.
Ben has had the opportunity to work with the best athletes in CrossFit over the last ten years flying not only to the Regionals, but to the World Crossfit Games numerous times. His experience with athletes doesn't stop with Crossfit Athletes, Ben has had the opportunity to work with Olympic Gymnast, weight lifters, Body Builders, Strongmen, Power lifters, Professional Boxers and MMA fighters. Ben finds the time to give back to the community of CrossFit and Chiropractic. Ben regularly sponsors local CrossFit/sporting competitions and tutors undergraduate Chiropractic students in chiropractic technique classes.

With over 20 years experience working his passion in the health and fitness industry, Joe has a wealth of knowledge and first hand experience.
Joe's journey towards a lifetime of vitality began at the age of 14 when his father suggested (or most likely, urged) Joe to join him at the gym every week day morning before school. At the time, Joe was 15 kilograms overweight. Despite being fairly active in team sports and athletics, Joe's weight had steadily crept up to the point where it was having a toll on him physically (not being as fast and agile as his peers when playing sports) and emotionally (being constantly teased and feeling insecure about his body image). After a little gentle coercion and encouragement, Joe and his father began a daily ritual that at the time seemed no more than an arduous chore to lose a few kilograms. Fast forward 30+ years, and the benefits gained, lessons learned and impact on the next generation are crystal clear. As a direct result of taking those first steps, Joe's interest in anatomy and movement were sparked. At the age of 16, Joe completed a fitness instructor course (and then subsequently courses in personal training, indoor cycling and pilates) and was given the opportunity to work his passion at his local gym.
Being faced with Sports related injuries was the next light bulb moment which gave Joe the push towards a career in manual therapy to provide the required treatment, adequate referral and lifetime management plan to give clients the ability to live pain free and perform at their best. Joe is regarded by his clients as a health, fitness and lifestyle educator, trainer and motivator. His passion for this has expanded to the corporate sector, working as a Principal Consultant with Recovre (Occupational Rehabilitation Provider).
Living life by the saying, “If you want to be in front, act as though you are behind,” Joe practices what he preaches, inspiring and encouraging everyone that he meets to make the choice to live an active, healthy life.
