Dr Fari Pakzamir (Chiropractor)

Dr Fari Pakzamir (Chiropractor)

Dr Fariborz Pakzamir (Chiropractor) has lived in Melbourne for more than 30 years and prior to that he lived in Sydney, Adelaide and Geelong. He was studying biological and health sciences at Deakin University in 1986 when he started to experience the chronic migraines that run in his family. He was suffering at least a few times a week from severe headaches. Medications offered no relief and several other avenues were also unable to help. A meeting with a chiropractor friend changed everything. Dr Pakzamir (Chiropractor) was hesitant to explore another unsuccessful avenue, but knew he had nothing to lose by letting his friend try to help.

Realising the Power of Chiropractic

After receiving treatment from his chiropractor friend, Dr Pakzamir (Chiropractor) saw a significant change in his migraines. Straightaway, he became interested in chiropractic. Dr Pakzamir (Chiropractor) asked so many questions that his chiropractor suggested he observe the treatment of patients at the clinic. These observations made Dr Pakzamir (Chiropractor) realise that chiropractic may help so many people, including those about to have surgery for different injuries like disc, shoulder or knee problems. It was then Dr Pakzamir (Chiropractor) decided to become a chiropractor.
