Doctor Robyn Stephenson - Chiropractor (BChiroSc MChiro)

Dr Robyn

I first saw a Chiropractor when I was 11 years old. My mother was being adjusted by a Chiropractor over some months for her chronically sore lower back and he suggested that my sister and I be checked out, just in case we had any vertebral subluxations. Since Mum was happy with her treatment and the relief she got, she agreed. It was probably just as well I saw the Chiropractor - I'd been doing gymnastics and had also suffered a few trips and falls when I was younger (two of which resulted in broken bones). It was the Chiropractor who pointed out that I had yet another fracture, this time in my lumbar spine (called a ‘spondylolisthesis’), when my X-rays were being viewed. Since then I’ve only managed to break a little toe, but have certainly sprained a few joints and had a few sprawls!

Exercise has always played a large part in my life - tennis, hockey, yoga, rock-climbing, gymnastics, bushwalking, Ultimate Frisbee, swimming, soccer, squash etc. Until recently, I have kept myself active with Pilates, swing dancing and walking, with the occasional swim & bicycle ride. I now keep myself active with Pilates, walking and gardening. I am also run off my feet with my two very active little children who are only 17 months apart! I try to look after my body by drinking plenty of filtered water, eating healthily and trying to get enough sleep – most of the time! For many years now, I have also looked after my health by consulting with qualified health practitioners: Chiropractors, Massage therapists, GPs, Acupuncturists, Physiotherapists, Naturopaths, Psychologists, Optometrists, Dentists, Midwives and others.

During my breaks, I have often travelled. I've been to every state & territory in Australia, Europe, the USA, northern Africa, SE Asia and some of the Pacific Islands. I’d like to visit Antarctica one day – and plenty of other countries as well. Aside from the enjoyment of travelling and sport, my two biggest passions are actually for my family – and Chiropractic! I have a most brilliant family life – there’s never a dull moment! Other interests in my life are: music & playing the piano (I’ve played since I was 6 years old), philosophy, cooking, reading, astrology, movies, the environment, geology, politics, astronomy, genealogy, the truth, anthropology and animals. I am even considering undertaking Animal Chiropractic at some point! Having this great love of learning, I attend Chiropractic seminars every year, which keep me up-to-date with Chiropractic. It's great learning new information, or even just consolidating what I have already learned.

Before Chiropractic, I completed a Geology degree through UTS in Sydney, but it was not to be. As odd as it sounds, Geology was the catalyst for me jumping into Chiropractic - there were no jobs in Geology when I finished so I had to rethink my future. It was actually a medical friend of mine who finally told me to apply for Chiropractic – and I am very grateful for her insight! I also spent 5 years working at WorkCover NSW, mostly part-time while I was completing my Chiropractic studies. I preferred part-time, as full-time desk-work was not my idea of the perfect job, being the active person that I am! I also did many years of babysitting, which was very rewarding – and didn’t even feel like work. Being a check-out operator in a fruit market casually for 7 years, however, often did feel like work! I love my career as a Chiropractor and am very grateful that I have managed to find my calling.

I'm originally from Sydney and still travel there occasionally to visit family and friends and attend seminars. I've lived in the Canberra and Yass districts since 2006 and now my family & I have moved to Rye Park :-)

Being an active member of the Gonstead Chiropractic Society of Australia, Dr Robyn enjoys participating in ongoing Gonstead seminars and workshops so you can be provided with very specific Chiropractic Care. The most recent Gonstead seminar was in April 2017.
Dr Robyn has been an active member of SOTO Australasia (Sacro-Occipital Technique) over the years and has undertaken SOT seminars to refresh technique, most recently in August 2012.

Being a member of a Chiropractic Association or Society is not a legal requirement for being a Chiropractor but many Chiropractors find it helps them in their practice of Chiropractic. Dr Robyn is of course legally registered as a Chiropractor under National Registration laws (through AHPRA) and thoroughly enjoys undertaking seminars that are offered to the Chiropractic Profession.

Lauren - Chiropractic Assistant

I began my interest in Chiropractic when my first child was just a baby and I was very impressed with Dr Robyn’s work on my infant son. Chiropractic ended up helping me as well, and Dr Robyn adjusted me throughout my second pregnancy and continued to help both my daughter and I post-partum.

When Yass Chiropractic re-opened in 2015, I happily offered my skills to help Robyn with her front desk duties and neither of us have looked back!

As a Chiropractic Assistant, I now take care of the front desk at Yass Chiropractic and should you have any queries about anything at Yass Chiropractic, I’m more than happy to assist you.

When I’m not run off my feet being Robyn’s ‘work wife’, I have a wonderful family that also keep me very busy. I also have interests in food, health, photography, comedy, and personal development.

I’ve studied Economics at the University of Queensland and continue to enjoy this area of academia with a particular focus on Behavioural Economics.

When I have some down-time, catching up with friends is always appreciated.  I love how time spent with good people can be uplifting and grounding at the same time.
