We are excited to have Dr Loubna Zoualfakar joining us as our newest Chiropractor at Realign Health Clinic! Loubna holds a Masters of Chiropractic from Macquarie University. With over two years prior experience, she also holds a Sports and Exercises Science degree from Western Sydney University.
We sat down with her to chat a little about her career and interests outside of Chiropractic!
How long have you been a chiropractor?
I have been practicing chiropractic for 2 years now.
What was your experience before Realign Health?
Before Realign I was working with a physiotherapist for 3 years. During my Masters degree I was working as a Chiropractic Associate and I’m now currently practicing at two clinics within greater Sydney.
I enjoy using a variety of techniques such as diversified, gonstead, activator, blocking, taping, NET, dry needling & wet/dry cupping.
What did you like about Realign Health and what was your reason for joining our team?
My reason for joining Realign Health Clinic was primarily due to the fact the clinic specialises in pregnancy, pre/post natal & paediatric care.
This is an area of particular interest for me as many of my current patients come from this demographic. I'm currently undergoing further training in paediatric care and can’t wait to start treating infants!
Why did you choose to become a chiropractor, and why do you love it?
This all started when I injured my knee from all the many sports I used to play. Watching both my Physiotherapist and Chiropractor work hand in hand to help me get back into sporting condition motivated me as I've always loved to help people!
What do you love the most about your profession?
What I love the most is a patient's expression after treatment. Seeing them being able to move again pain free and getting back to their day to day activities without pain. Knowing I was able to provide that relief to my patients is such an amazing feeling!
How do you try to relax in your downtime?
I love going for walks or hikes and discovering new locations. Outside of the clinic I'll usually be spending time with my friends, family and this cutie in the bow tie!
What is your guilty pleasure?
Chips on a stick and Chocolate.
What would people be surprised to know about you?
I was NSW state champion in taekwondo at the age of 14 and I’m a huge Harry Potter Fan
If you weren't a Chiropractor, what would you be doing?
If I wasn’t a Chiropractor, I would definitely be travelling around the world working as a flight attendant or being a food blogger as I’m a big foodie.
What are you most excited about doing at Realign Health?
I'm excited to continue building my knowledge, working along side Jessica and her amazing team. It will be great to get to know the Leichhardt community and surrounding areas!
