INNATE Chiropractic Gladstone

Innate Chiropractic Gladstone was born when Dr. Alison moved to Gladstone to be closer to family, and she had the desire to continue her family practice. The practice aims to be the pre-eminent practice for chiropractic for children and families in the CQ region.

Dr. Alison has completed her Masters in Chiropractic Science in Paediatrics, in addition to her 5 year undergraduate chiropractic degree. She has worked for over 10 years in Perth prior to moving to QLD. She also has two young children, and has aimed to design the practice as if she was making the space enjoyable and safe for her own children.

After living as an expat in Asia for a number of years, Dr. Alison is passionate about helping families to find the balance they seek between achievable options in healthcare, combined with the living of life. She will refer to other local health practitioners who she thinks can provide the support that her practice members require, and enjoys co-management when required.

She loves the premise of Eat Well, Move Well, Think Well, and feels that helping her patients to address these three elements of health can go a long way to optimising health and wellbeing for her practice members.

Dr Kate Finlayson, Chiropractor

I am a country girl who grew up in regional NSW and moved to Sydney to study Chiropractic, I studied at Macquarie University for 5 years and graduated my Master of Chiropractic in 2020. I have always had a passion to help people and I believe Chiropractic allows me to pursue this passion.


I have a special interest in treating paediatric and pregnant patients, I have had extra training in paediatric courses such as Switched on kids/babies, Inspiral and SOT to ensure I can treat all ages at the best of my ability. My goal at Innate is to treat the whole family and help everyone to reach their ultimate potential of health and wellbeing. 

In my spare time you will find me at the gym, the beach, chasing adventures and catching up with family and friends.
