Cairns Chiropractor



Hi I’m John Cassimatis. I graduated from Macquarie University in 2001 and worked around Australia as a locum Chiropractor for 3-4 years. I then came to Cairns in 2004 and established Cairns Chiropractor, and have been offering comprehensive chiropractic services in Cairns and far north Queensland for 16 years.
 I grew up in Sydney and studied one year of Engineering, before changing over to a Science degree in Chemistry. With an interest in Human Anatomy and Physiology, I decided to to pursue a career in Chiropractic, which utilised my scientific and engineering knowledge and aided my understanding of human biomechanics.
My passion for lifting weights, specifically powerlifting and strongman and I have successfully competed within these sports. I have an intimate knowledge of the demands and desires athletes place on their bodies. Such experiences have driven me to try and excel at helping people of all skill levels maintain their fitness and training goals. 

My Story

I have been lifting weight for about 25 years and have competed in amateur powerlifting competitions.

Cairns Chiropractor


Chiropractic is a health profession that licenses chiropractors. It emphasizes the body’s natural ability to heal. Manual therapy is often used and sometimes includes spinal manipulation. You may also be able to use other forms of treatment such as nutrition counseling and exercise.

What Chiropractors Do

The approach of chiropractors to patient care is similar to conventional medicine. The chiropractors interview the patient and take a detailed history. They then perform a physical exam, run tests, and create a diagnosis. The doctor will then create a treatment plan and follow up with the patient. Many problems involving the musculoskeletal systems are treated by chiropractors.

Chiropractics uses a variety of manual treatments, including stretching and sustained pressure, and joint manipulations. These are typically done by hand and involve a gentle thrust. The manipulations are intended to improve joint function and motion. Although most manipulations are performed on the spine, other parts of your body can also be used.
