About Hunter Chiropractic Collective

Our Mission

Hunter Chiropractic Collective exteriorAt Hunter Chiropractic Collective, we’re dedicated to improving the quality of each person’s health. Our core belief is to respectfully provide the best possible care in a supportive and fun environment, ensuring that helpful methods are used at all times and delivering our care in a professional manner. We value the trust that is put in us, and we aim for results.

Our entire team is committed to providing an environment where you and your family can focus on healing. With our holistic, natural approach, we strive to help you unlock your highest health potential and create wellness that lasts a lifetime.

Our History

Prior to moving to Australia, our chiropractor, Dr Heidi Upneck-Nel practised in South Africa for a decade. When she moved here in 2011, she began practising in Nelson Bay, and in 2021 she opened our clinic in Maitland.

A mum of two, Heidi is passionate about helping families and offers special support for those experiencing challenges associated with autism and similar disorders.

Our Holistic Approach

In addition to chiropractic care, we offer massage, dry needling and podiatry services. We also refer to other providers as necessary to ensure you get the care you need to meet your health goals. Our team is invested in you and your health, and we take the time to listen—with us, you’ll be heard, respected and valued. Patients love that our office is fun and family-orientated, with a relaxed, community feel.

We meet you where you are in terms of care, which often means beginning by getting you out of pain. But our approach goes much deeper than that: we’re committed to helping you create long-term health and wellness through education, natural healthcare services and nutrition.
