The Spinal Dynamics story began when Dr. Rohan Teasdale was studying to become a chiropractor in the United States. He met an American woman named Dawn who was training to be a chiropractic assistant. They were soon married and after completing their training, they both moved back to Rohan's home in Australia to start a chiropractic clinic.
Their chiropractic business grew, alongside their family, which included opening a number of new chiropractic clinics across Victoria. This journey eventually led Rohan and Dawn back to Geelong where in 1992 the Spinal Dynamics clinic officially opened its doors. With decades of experience, Rohan and Dawn have established a strong reputation and loyal client base.

Dr. Rohan W. Teasdale
Rohan brings almost four decades of experience, skill and learning to his patients.
Many years ago in 1974, a young Melbourne man with a budding scientific mind and a passion for healing people, set out across the oceans to the United States of America in search of instruction on the art of 'healing by hands', known as Chiropractic. After scouring the lands he joined a host of like minded souls at the Palmer College of Chiropractic and began his rigorous studies.
Rohan has undertaken a variety of post-graduate studies over the years. Always keeping abreast of change and looking for new ways to help his patients is very important to him. His studies have included: Sacro Occipital Technique, Craniopathy, Ayurvedic Practitioner, Counselling, Breath Therapist, Matrix Energist, Reiki, Reflexology and Kinesiology.
Dr. Sarah O'Connor
Sarah has a variety of chiropractic skills with a special interest in the use of Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT) to help treat the subluxations of the patients.
Sarah has recently moved to Torquay from Sale where she has practiced Chiropractic for the past four years.
Her first experience with chiropractic was as a teenager after a nasty fall from her horse, where she damaged her neck falling against a tree. After being impressed with the care and expertise of the chiropractor she saw, she decided chiropractic was the perfect way to combine her interests in health and healing people. Sarah completed her Bachelor of Health Science and Masters of Clinical Chiropractic at RMIT in Melbourne.
Since starting her training as a chiropractor Sarah has learnt how effective the human body is at self healing, (as long as there is nothing interfering with this process) and that chiropractic is the perfect way to alleviate the interference. She enjoys helping patients learn about the body and teaching them about exercise, nutrition and the need for a positive outlook. Sarah has a strong passion for caring for families and helping them regain their health through chiropractic care and advice.
Dr. Kristen Logue
Kristen believes in taking the time to educate her patients to help them understand their own body, so they feel empowered and not overwhelmed in their quest to feel better.
Kristen, who is Geelong born and bred, studied at RMIT University in Melbourne and graduated in 2012 with a Bachelor of Health Sciences (Complementary medicine- chiropractic) and a Masters in Clinical Chiropractic both with distinction. She was thrilled to settle back in Geelong with her husband when starting work as a chiropractor here at Spinal Dynamics in early 2013. She found herself back at the place where her journey with chiropractic first began, having been a long time patient of Rohan’s.
Kristen, now a mother of two young girls knows first hand the benefits of chiropractic for pregnancy care, postpartum care as well as for her children. She enjoys getting to know families and helping every member feel well and perform at their best whatever they choose to do. She enjoys treating all musculoskeletal conditions, not just those involving the spine.
Kristen knows the importance of listening, assessing and looking at all facets of someone’s health and well being, combining hands on care as well as advice and exercises to help heal for the long term.
