Dr Mark Jackson

As a chiropractor I have a particular interest in the effect of Chiropractic Adjustments as they relate to controlling mental/emotional stress broadly, and with specific focus on acute anxiety.

The scientific journey this focus has taken me on has developed my understanding of neurology and the biochemistry of stress. While I do not wish the symptoms of stress on any body, I do get enjoyment out of being able to help those who present to me with the issue. If this sounds like you or someone you know please contact the clinic. I would be more than happy to provide my expertise.

Since returning to Australia, apart from working as a locus for 6 months, I have practiced at the Clayfield Chiropractic Clinic. I have been very impressed by all the staff who are very professional whilst managing to maintain an easy-going atmosphere.

My scholarly interests over the past few years have revolved mostly around the effect of Chiropractic Adjustments helping to control mental/emotional stress. Particularly acute anxiety. I had noticed since my early years in practice that several of my patients who were experiencing periods of acute stress would often request more regular adjustments as they were sure it was a great assistance in helping them to cope until the crisis was over.

This inevitably lead to the eternal question “WHY”??? I therefore became interested in the neurology and biochemistry of stress and have come across several mechanisms in the scientific literature as to why spinal dysfunction may have an effect on the stress response. There still however remains a great deal to research and learn.
