Dr Stewart Ward


B.Hlth.Sci.; M.Clin.Chiro; Adv.Dip.Myo.

Dr Stewart Ward graduated from RMIT in 2012 with a Bachelor of Health Sciences and a Master of Clinical Chiropractic. He also holds a Diploma in Remedial Massage & Advanced Diploma in Myotherapy, and practiced in Melbourne for five years while studying Chiropractic. These skills and experiences equip him with a unique perspective and mix of modalities and techniques; he combines soft tissue work and traditional chiropractic methods.

Stewart is also continuing with post-graduate studies in sports rehabilitation and functional neuro-orthopaedic rehabilitation which includes concussion. 

Stewart loves working with all people whether they are in pain or simply looking to improve their body’s ability to move well and be able to do what it is that they love. He is particularly passionate in working with athletes of all ages, sizes and sports; in both injury management and enhancing performance. Aside from general back pain, hip and leg pain, or shoulder pain, Stewart enjoys helping you to get to the bottom of your jaw pain, headaches and chronic low back pain. He focuses not just on pain but getting people back to doing what they love; supported and empowered.

In his free time Stewart is an avid weightlifter, recreational golfer and gigantic nerd who can easily jump from back squats to Batman in the same sentence. He is a voracious reader, occasional gamer, a decent cook, loves listening to podcasts, and spending time with his family and friends.

Chiropractic at Resilient Health takes a whole-person approach to your healthcare. It is a direct modality of treatment, which means it has a manual or hands-on approach to treatment and helping you to achieve your optimum health.

When you see a Chiropractor at Resilient Health you receive a diagnosis, management, and education with the aim of preventing mechanical disorders of the entire neuromusculoskeletal system. This includes the spine AND ALSO the extremities (e.g. foot/ankle, knee, shoulder), muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and the nervous system.

An initial consultation at Resilient Health involves comprehensive history taking, evaluation, diagnosis, individualized treatments, and management plans. Here, Chiropractic aims to enhance overall health, function and performance of the whole body.

At Resilient Health, our team works together so that all our patients can receive a collaborative, multi model treatment that best suits their needs.

In Australia, Chiropractors are recognised as primary health care providers and are trained to recognise conditions that require referral to medical practitioners or other allied health modalities. Chiropractic University graduates like Dr Stewart Ward hold a Master qualification and complete a minimum of FIVE years of university training in anatomy, physiology, pathology, general medical diagnosis and chiropractic techniques. This also enables them to perform standard medical examinations of the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory, and nervous systems.

Australian law requires Chiropractors, to maintain ongoing professional development and education every year to stay in practice. In Australia, all chiropractors are required to be government-registered practitioners. If a chiropractor does not appear on this register, they should not practice.

    This involves in-clinic diagnostic and screening tests, orthopaedic or neurological tests, postural assessments and activities or exercises, which will help determine the cause & how best to manage your condition. The examination may include passive and active movements where your Chiropractor may lift your arms or legs and you may be asked to bend over or stand for observation. Be sure to wear comfortable, flexible and appropriate clothing.
  • Referral for diagnostic imaging where appropriate.
  • Working Diagnosis
    Your Chiropractor will provide explanations of what seems to be happening and why
  • Treatment
    Your Resilient Health Chiropractor will incorporate primarily manual treatment using a range of techniques from different modalities to help alleviate pain and begin the recovery process

  • Management and Individualised exercise program based on functional outcomes, as well as postural and ergonomic advice, or advice on lifestyle in general.
    This involves collaboration between yourself and your Resilient Health Chiropractor to combine education and advice to help you manage your condition between treatments. This may include giving you exercises to do at home for stretching or strengthening, or how to achieve a more ergonomic workstation, to maintain a more positive posture and aim to prevent re-injury/re-aggravation.
