Meet The Team


GAVIN COCKRAN B.AppSc(Chiro) DIP. App.Sc(Radiog)

Gavin commenced his career in the Health industry in 1975 as a Radiographer until after being a chiropractic patient himself, decided that his passion was actually to have a career as a Chiropractor. He left Western Australia to study at RMIT Melbourne and graduated as a Doctor of Chiropractic in 1990.
He wanted to return to his home in Western Australia and began practicing in the regional areas of York, Northam and Wylkatchem.

In 1991, he established Alfred Cove Chiropractic Centre and still after 30 years is practicing in the same premises. Many of Gavin’s patients are now 2nd and 3rd generation family members and he has spent many years building a practice built on care, trust and a passion for his patients well being.
