“Becoming a chiropractor was a natural choice for me. You could say helping people is in my blood, as my father is also a chiropractor.”

An Interest in Pregnancy & Paediatric Care

Since starting her own family, Dr Ellana’s passion for pregnancy and paediatric chiropractic has only intensified. She is keen to focus on pregnancy management, especially in relation to breech presentations, pubic bone dysfunction and pregnancy related back pain.
Dr Ellana has completed the Optimal Maternal Positioning course (similar to Spinning Babies) and is proficient in the Webster Technique. She has experience in the assessment and management of latch issues with breastfeeding, hip dysplasia, torticollis and plagiocephaly (flat spots). Dr Ellana also has experience in scoliosis management and care.

Helping People of All Ages

For Dr Ellana it’s fulfilling to solve problems and get to the root cause of her patients’ presenting complaints. “Because chiropractic isn’t one-dimensional for me, I always strive to create an individualised, holistic care plan for my patients.”

Having witnessed the benefits of chiropractic care for the whole family, young and old, Dr Ellana gets joy from sharing this with people of all ages. She loves helping people reach their health goals and get back to doing things they love.

Education & Professional Development

To prepare for her career in chiropractic, Dr Ellana earned a Bachelor of Science and a Bachelor of Chiropractic with distinction from Murdoch University in 2014. She and Dr Tess Griffiths (Chiropractor) studied together at the university.

Dr Ellana regularly takes professional development courses. To date, she’s taken ones on the following:

  • Sacro Occipital Technique including Craniosacral Therapy Optimal Maternal Positioning
  • The Well Kids Paediatric Program
  • Activator Program
  • Thompson Technique
  • Inspiral Dynamic Kids Development

Outside the Practice

When she’s not caring for patients’ spines, Dr Ellana’s two young daughters, Cara and Bianca, keep her busy. She likes to spend her days with her family getting outdoors and having quality time together. Having Italian heritage, Dr Ellana has a passion for superb coffee and food.
