Dr. Nelson Du

Dr Jian (Nelson) is both a Chiropractor and a trained Medical Doctor. He uses his knowledge of complementary Chiropractic combined with his Medical Practitioner training to provide exceptional care for patients of all ages for their musculo-skeletal health and well being.

Nelson practiced as a medical registrar at the Puhua International Hospital, Beijing China, where he consulted in the neurological and orthopedic departments. This position gave him valuable experience in patient management and care of a range of conditions including spinal and peripheral joint injuries, spinal cord injuries and complex neurological disorders. He saw first hand cases of cervical and lumbar intervertebral disc injuries, headaches and migraines successfully managed by Chiropractic care. 

Nelson decided to study Chiropractic because of its power managing a range of musculo-skeletal conditions and concerns in a natural, conservative and non-pharmaceutical/surgical manner. Nelson graduated Macquarie University’s 3-year post graduate Chiropractic program with a distinction average. During his internship at Macquarie University he gained clinical experience at the University’s outpatient clinic, community clinic and several private clinics where he undertook clinical observations and placement.

Nelson has a passion for seeing patients with chronic pain conditions including back and neck pain, and more complex neurological conditions including headaches, migraines and vertigo that can have a muscular and/or spinal component. Each time Nelson consults with his patients he is able to draw on his medical and Chiropractic training, plus clinical experiences from hospitals and private chiropractic practice, which enables him to provide a unique standard of care and service.

When Nelson is not seeing patients in practice he enjoys time with his family. Nelson is a keen chess player and member of the Blackburn choir group. Nelson enjoys working out at the gym and watching movies on the weekends.

Nelson is Available for private Chiropractic consultations on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from the Sydenham clinic. Nelson is also available for appointments in Ringwood on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
