Meet the Team
Dr Felicity Gundelach has been helping people achieve better health for 18 years and is passionate about delivering the highest quality Chiropractic care to people of all ages.
She completed her Undergraduate Science degree at University of QLD, and following graduation with an outstanding academic record in her Master of Chiropractic degree from Macquarie University Sydney in 2003, Felicity commenced practice in Coorparoo.
After spending over 12 years in the one location, Felicity decided to pursue a new direction and established Annerley Chiropractic in 2016.
During her career, Dr Felicity has served for several years both as an Executive Director & State Media Spokesperson on the Board of the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia, Queensland Branch (CAAQ), as well as being appointed by the Qld Government as a professional expert to consult and assist with matters of safety and scope of practice. She has also been a past employee of Macquarie University in the role of skills tutor/examiner. Felicity actively updates her training and knowledge through Continuing Professional Development and is a skilled spinal diagnostician.
In clinical practice Dr Felicity is readily able to modify techniques to suit bodies of all ages and conditions, from newborns to the elderly, allowing safe, gentle and effective care.
She is proficient in using a variety of treatment techniques based on individual presentation and preference, including spinal manipulative therapy, handheld Activator instrument adjusting, cranial therapy, sacro-occipital technique, peripheral manual adjusting, SOT blocking and drop-piece table techniques, with the incorporation of soft tissue release and mobilisation. Postural advice, prescriptive homework/exercises and progress exams are also a primary component of ongoing care.
Dr Felicity is adept at prescribing and modifying care schedules for patients to gain the desired results in the quickest time. It is not a one-size-fits-all and outcomes are consistently monitored. She is dedicated to achieving the health goals of her patients and takes a holistic approach. Dr Felicity is more than happy to co-manage with other providers and regularly liaises with Remedial Massage Therapists, GPs/Specialists, Naturopaths, Physiotherapists, Podiatrists, Psychologists, Exercise Physiologists & PTs, with an established network of multidisciplinary referrers.
When she is not in clinic Felicity enjoys spending time with her three dogs, gardening, rejuvenating at the beach and listening to Elvis tunes.
