Cheyne Thompson grew up in Sydney after her family emigrated to Australia when she was a child. She started studying Chiropractic when she graduated from high school after a family friend who was a Chiropractor suggested that she would be suited to the profession. She had decided a long time before that that she would like to work in an area where she could help people when she chose a career.
Cheyne graduated from Sydney College of Chiropractic (now part of Macquarie University in Sydney) with Doctor of Chiropractic and Doctor of Osteopathy degrees. She then practiced in Riverstone, NSW (with the Chiropractor who encouraged her mentor who had guided her into becoming a Chiropractor) before becoming the principal Chiropractor there.
After moving to Brisbane in 1991, she had a practice in Arana Hills and Paddington before becoming an Associate at Clayfield Chiropractic Clinic. She worked here for 10 years whilst her 3 children were young and she was studying her Masters of Chiropractic Science (Paediatrics) through RMIT University.
In 2003, she became the Principal Chiropractor at Clayfield Chiropractic Clinic. Cheyne is a registered Medicare Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) and Department of Veteran’s Affairs provider. She accepts Private Health Fund and private patients.
The techniques that Cheyne uses are primarily low force techniques that are suitable for all ages and members of your family. She uses SOT, TBM, NET, AK, Activator and Diversified techniques. She also treats limb joint complaints such as strains and sprains, and uses Trigger Point and soft tissue releases, prescribes exercises and offers nutritional advice as part of individualised approaches for each person.
Cheyne is married and has 5 adult children and 3 grandchildren. Her interests include going to the gym, training her dogs, walking, scrapbooking/cardmaking, patchwork quilting, geneology, travelling and reading.
