Greg Bell - Chiropractor
Greg is originally from northern NSW where he grew up on a farm between Glen Innes and Inverell. He spent his teenage years attending boarding school in Tamworth.

Following this break he pursued a career in chiropractic and moved to Sydney to complete his Undergraduate and Masters degree at Macquarie University. On graduating Dr. Greg moved to the US and spent the next couple of years working in Washington DC and Boston, learning and refining his skills in the Gonstead technique. With a passion for public speaking and coaching other chiropractors an opportunity arose to be one of the lead chiropractors in the first and largest chiropractic organization in Asia. He has spent the last 3 years working in Singapore and training other chiropractors to bring chiropractic to areas of Malaysia, Indonesia and more recently China.
He has developed a passion for travelling, fitness and public speaking.

Petrina Le Cudennec - Chiropractor
A local girl born and raised in Inverell, Petrina attended Inverell Public and Macintyre High Schools. Petrina was lucky to grow up under the care and guidance of, and later working as a chiropractic assistant for Dr John Irvine, a chiropractor who was well known in the Inverell and district community.
Completing an Associate Degree in Law, Petrina worked as a paralegal in a busy legal office in Armidale for many years where she enjoyed working as part of a team to achieve positive outcomes for clients. With a long-niggling desire to be a chiropractor that wouldn't go away, Petrina decided to make a career change with the encouragement of Wendy and Greg.
Moving to Brisbane to complete her study, Petrina graduated from CQUniversity with distinction in both her undergraduate and Masters degrees. Petrina has completed further courses in dry needling and taping and is able to incorporate these skills alongside chiropractic care. Having been an office worker for many years, Petrina particularly enjoys working with patients who are experiencing neck and shoulder tension, and/or suffering from headaches.
Missing the sense of community together with a desire to serve regional towns has led Petrina back to the area. When she is not working, you will find Petrina attempting a great variety of things including baking, gardening, sewing, playing music, exploring the local area with a camera in hand, or simply enjoying a good book and hanging out with her beloved dogs.
