About Cairns Chiropractor

I’m Dr John Cassimatis. I have been a Chiropractor since 2001. I moved to Cairns in 2004 and have provided quality chiropractic care for Cairns residents since then.

I studied Mechanical Engineering and  have a Bachelor of Science majoring in Biochemistry and a Masters degree in Chiropractic both from Macquarie University.

I have had a long interest in Anatomy and Physiology and after studying the biochemistry component of humans I directed my focus to structure and function.

My Story

I first saw a Chiropractor when I was 12 years old when my mother was seeing one for headaches. However it wasn’t until I was 20 that I became personally convinced of its dramatic affects. I was kickboxing at the time and injured myself from overzealous kicking. After going through many types of therapies and many doctors that weren’t helping me, I decided to see a chiropractor. After I was adjusted I got off the table and could kick above my head again.

I have been lifting weight for about 20 years and have competed in amateur powerlifting competitions.

I have an intimate knowledge of the demands and desires athletes place on their bodies. My personal experiences of being treated by chiropractors have shown me how effective such treatments can be, all without the use of drugs or surgery. Such experiences have driven me to try and excel at helping people of all skill levels maintain their fitness and training goals.
