About the Chadstone Clinic

The Chadstone Clinic was first established by a 2nd generation Chiropractor, Dr Tony Hart in the mid 70’s. His first son, Chris Hart graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic College in 1973 and along with his father were, instrumental in establishing the Chiropractic college that is now at RMIT. Dr Pieter Hart then joined his brother at the clinic and together established a reputation of the Gonstead Chiropractic system at The Chadstone Clinic. Later on around the mid 90’s Pieter then left the clinic to continue his own practice. The Chadstone Clinic has now been established as a medical clinic from around the year 2000 and Dr Josh joined the Chiropractic practice in 2001.  Dr Chris Hart retired from the Chiropractic clinic in 2004 where Dr Josh Free and now Dr Chris Jones continue to implement the specific Gonstead system of Chiropractic.

About Dr Joshua Free

Dr Joshua Free completed his Chiropractic studies at Macquarie University in Sydney and joined Dr Chris Hart at The Chadstone Clinic in 2002. It was rather fitting that Dr Free joined the clinic as he was first introduced to the clinic as a child in 1978 and received treatment from Dr Tony initially and then grew up in the clinic under the care of both Chris and Pieter. Dr Free’s family had a long history with the Hart’s as his mother had been physically debilitated due to illness at age 14 and Dr Tony Hart was the only Doctor or practitioner in Victoria that was able to help her condition. From that point on, Joshua’s parents understood the importance of Chiropractic and had taken all of their six children to the Hart’s practice for Chiropractic care. The three sons of Janet and Russell Free (Tim, Quentin and Joshua) then went on to study Chiropractic and have now developed their own practices.

Chadstone Chiropractic services patients from all surrounding areas like Chadstone, Oakleigh, Oakleigh East, Hughesdale, Clayton.  

The Gonstead Difference

The Gonstead system of chiropractic was founded and developed by Dr. Clarence Gonstead who graduated a chiropractor in 1923 after a career in mechanical engineering. His devotion and commitment to getting sick people well, led him in his desire to establish a system of finding the major problem and then giving it a specific chiropractic adjustment to restore normal function.
