Dr Alfie Dimalanta is the principal chiropractor and owner of Point Cook Chiropractic Health & Wellness Centre. He has been a chiropractor since 2003 and graduated from the prestigious RMIT College of Chiropractic in Bundoora, Victoria. His first practice opened in 2004 and was in South Yarra, called Chiropractic@TheComo. The practice served people from all walks of life: families, celebrities, athletes and leaders of industry.
When the opportunity came up to open a family practice in Point Cook in 2008, he opened up Point Cook Chiropractic Health & Wellness Centre. We opened our doors in August 2008 at the same time as the Point Cook Town Centre grand opening.
Dr. Alfie practices both manual and low-force techniques to suit the comfort of his clients and provide the best possible results to align the spine. These include:
- Diversified Technique: The traditional style of manual chiropractic care using hands to deliver the adjustment,
- Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT): A low-force technique and system of analysis that uses blocks under the pelvis to gently deliver the chiropractic adjustment,
- Activator: A low-force technique that utilises an instrument (affectionately known as ‘The Clicker’) that gently delivers a gentle, measured force into the spine,
- Thompson Drop Technique: A method of analysis and low-force chiropractic technique that uses special ‘drop pieces’ on the chiropractic table to deliver the adjustment.
