UC 355: Health Choice Erosion with Adam Epskamp
08, Oct, 2019
It was Dr Epskamp’s own chiropractor who initially encouraged him to consider chiropractic as a career path. The thought of helping people to improve their health and effecting change the way that his own chiropractor had, inspired him and within six months Adam was sitting in his first-class at Murdoch University, Western Australia. After 5 years of study, Dr Epskamp emerged with a Bachelor of Science (Chiropractic) and Bachelor of Chiropractic with Honours and has been practicing ever since. After working in the industry for a short time, Dr Epskamp decided to extend his knowledge by completing further studies in the area of Paediatric Chiropractic care. Dr Epskamp is now a board member of The Australian College of Chiropractic Paediatrics (ACCP).
Dr Epskamp’s passion for supporting the health and wellbeing of his clients extends beyond chiropractic. He has a long history in the fitness industry working as a fitness instructor since 2007. Dr Epskamp is currently a Les Mills Master Trainer and Presenter and you can find him teaching at a number of gyms on the Sunshine Coast. Dr Epskamp’s specialised training in Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) and Functional Movement Screen (FMS) systems also provides a unique bridge between fitness and chiropractic care. Over the last few years, his interests have seen him explore nutrition and gut health to gain a better understanding of how gut microbiome and hormones affect overall health and wellbeing.
The Chatters begin the interview with asking Dr Adam Epskamp is history and how he found health to be a passion. The conversation continues with the discussion about our choices being taken away from us when it comes to healthy care. Evidence-based is the new buzz word, but what exactly is evidenced based in health care today.
After ten years in the industry working as a chiropractor in Western Australia, Canada and now the Sunshine Coast, Dr Epskamp has finally opened his own clinic in Mountain Creek at the Brightwater Marketplace. Dr Epskamp currently lives on the Sunshine Coast with his wife Savannah and their two cats Penelope and Portia.
