Dr Jemima Hoult
Dr. Jemima Hoult also has training in the field of chiropractic paediatrics. She has completed additional paediatric post graduate studies including being trained in the field of paediatric neurological assessment and management. This aspect of chiropractic paediatrics involves assessing which parts of a child’s brain are functioning at the expected level for his/her age and/or which parts of the child’s brain are not functioning at the expected level. The results provide us with insight as to whether the child may benefit from treatment and if so what form of treatment best suits the child. Due to her experience and training, the majority of Dr Jemima’s patients are young children. Dr. Jemima graduated from RMIT University in 1999 with a double degree in a Bachelor of Applied Science (Clinical Science) and a Bachelor of Chiropractic Science and she started in our practice in 2002. She has since focused her practice on family health with special attention to paediatrics, as well as women’s health.
