TLC was founded in Queensland, Australia by Dr Craig Gilberd – Chiropractor in 2002. Dr Craig, a New Zealander, decided on Chiropractic as a career at the age of 15 years, after a miracle adjustment from Dr Wally Robb, in 1969, in his home town of Auckland. His recovery from this severe case of mono-nucleosis within 24 hours, set Craig on an unwavering commitment to Chiropractic. Craig began his career at Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1973 at the tender age of 19. The new kid at school was nicknamed the “Pup”, to which he is still fondly referred by his old mates from Palmer.
Craig established Lifestyle Chiropractic Australia with a practice in Mackay in 2002. In 2009 the groups name evolved to Total Lifestyle Chiropractic with the acronym TLC, the premise being “Everybody needs TLC!”. Today, TLC operates at 13 locations from Innisfail in far north Queensland to Oak Park in Victoria. Over the years, TLC has been involved in the professional development of many fine Chiropractors and Chiropractic Assistants and we take pride in the ongoing professional development we offer all those who work with us.
TLC has grown in leaps and bounds since our first Practice opened and now we regularly see thousands of patients each week helping them to achieve their health and wellness potential through natural family wellness care.
