Dr Alex Gibson practices as a family Chiropractor at Lifestyle Chiropractic.
As a Chiropractor, Dr Gibson is much loved by her staff and patients who seem to love referring her to people with different strange or rare diseases and disorders. She adores babies and particularly delights in the relief they get from colic though chiropractic care.
Due to her own experiences she has a special interest in muscular and immune system disorders and has done substantive investigation into muscular dystrophy, Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM), Miller Fischer and Guillain-Barre syndrome. She also has advanced knowledge of cancer and melanoma in particular.
Lifestyle Chiropractic is situated at Caring Centre at 52 River Rd Rivonia, Johannesburg in South Africa.
When she escapes her chiropractic practice it is to be a lecturer at the University of Johannesburg. This is also her Alma Mater where she graduated as a prestigious “Golden Key” graduate despite having a couple of rare diseases herself during her studies. It is at UJ where she indulges her love for training new Chiropractic healers.
Dr Alex does not give messages of inspiration, but her actions and the way she lives inspire those around her to overcome setbacks and become a master of your own destiny.

South africa has one of the most arduous Chiropractic training schedules in the world. The course follows the Palmer method of chiropractic care.
Chiropractic is studied at the Durban University of Technology or University of Johannesburg. The course is six years which consists of the first 2 years of basic science education followed by four years training specialising in chiropractic care. The prospective Chiropractor then is required to complete a research dissertation, in order to receive their Masters in Technology of Chiropractic Degree, which then further entitles the graduate to apply for registration with the AHPCSA as an intern prior to being recommended for registration as a practice (i.e. issuing of a registration number and then also a practice number).
