Dr. Leah Hocking CHIROPRACTOR
Dr Leah enjoys providing personalised care to patients of all ages and activity levels, with a particular interest in functional neurology and the pain/stress relationship.
Leah’s journey into chiropractic began in her early teens, however it was after the birth of her first daughter that she first experienced the NIP technique as both a patient and a parent and subsequently became very passionate about it. This eventually led her to university to study to become a Chiropractor and she completed her Bachelor of Health Science/Bachelor Applied Science (Chiropractic) in 2019 with distinction. Her goal is to provide the same caring and thorough treatment that she and her family have benefitted from over many years.
Dr Leah has a particular interest in the impact of stress on pain and function. She is passionate about improving quality of life and seeing you enjoying your life to it’s fullest potential, achieving what your pain may have limited you to previously. You can expect a thorough and caring consultation with honest advice about your condition, combined with low force chiropractic care. Leah is committed to furthering her education to continue to provide high quality evidence informed care.
Leah lives on the rural outskirts of Ballarat with her two school-aged daughters, all of whom are horse crazy. Leah and her daughters ride horses and enjoy exploring various equestrian pursuits mainly for pleasure including trail riding, dressage, jumping, vaulting and trick riding. When they aren’t riding or cuddling their horses or other pets they can be found running around to various dance classes and competitions, running, playing on their monkey bars or exploring hidden treasures throughout regional Victoria and supporting local businesses. Dr Leah believes laughter is the best medicine and she and her family aim to enjoy frequent giggles and silliness.
