We are registered with all health funds and offer early morning and late evening appointments from Monday to Friday as well as Saturday mornings. This enables you to find an appointment that fits your schedule.
Chiropractic can help with a wide variety of issues such as back pain, neck pain and headaches. It can also help with foot, knee and hip issues and here at Hawker Chiropractic we pride ourselves from taking a head to toe approach with your health so that we can do everything possible to help you.
Incorporating massage or acupuncture into your health regime can have tremendous effects. They can both help to ease discomfort in your muscles, increase range of motion and ease feelings of stress and worry. Everyone loves a good massage!

Meet Our Team
Dr Eva McQueen is Australia’s leading expert in Footlevelers custom-made orthotics and has been involved in Whole Body Wellness since 2005. She is Australia’s inaugural winner of the Footlevelers Clinical Excellence award and is heavily involved in teaching and training new practitioners to the Footlevelers system. Dr Eva McQueen has represented her country in water-ski racing and is currently the Australian Team Doctor for this sport. She specialises in treating patients “from the ground up” – looking at postural imbalances which occur from the feet – and treating not only the feet but the misalignments in the lower limb and spine that occur because of these changes. Dr McQueen has also trained in Quantum Neurology which deals with neuroplastic changes within the nervous system and has recently completed studies in Sympathetic Dominance dealing with changes that occur in the body due to us consistently being in a “stressed” (fight or flight) state and the consequences this has on our gut, auto-immune system and general well-being.
Dr Alana McQueen provides chiropractic care to all members of the community, however she has a special interest in chiropractic for children and families as well as sports chiropractic and functional rehabilitation. Alana has a love for nutrition, fitness and exercise and is constantly learning new information about these subjects.
