Dr Peter Imlay
With over 10 years experience treating patients. Pete really enjoys taking the time to get to know you and your issues to ensure you have the best outcome from your chiropractic treatment.
He enjoys working closely with the massage team at Chiropractic Plus and regularly hosts training sessions for our team, and maintains healthy working relationships with local exercise physiologists, physiotherapist’s, podiatrists, personal trainers and GP’s.
He uses a large variety of techniques and is often referred to as the ‘Master of Needling’ at Chiropractic plus. This includes musculoskeletal acupuncture, Dry needling, integrated needling, electro needling, myofascial needling and post operative/ injury recovery needling.
He also uses IASTM therapy and is trained in advanced core rehabilitation.
Pete is a very mindful that many needling practitioners are very aggressive in their approach and this can leave people uncomfortable or nervous about their treatment and prides himself on his ability to convert even the most needle phobic patients to see the benefits.
Pete is also a very movement based Chiropractor and will ensure you have all the tools you need to improve your health at home, leisure and at work. This can include ergonomic assessments of driving, sleep, exercise and hobby biomechanics and posture.
He regularly gets patients to take photos and videos performing their chosen sports/exercises to help them solve their problems.
Pete’s chiropractic journey started in his teens when he was diagnosed with an uncommon spinal condition that has led him down the painful road of multiple lumabr disc herniations and scoliosis. It was through the unique holistic approach of chiropractic that he was able to manage his condition and lead a fulfilling life. Chronic pain due to these issues combined with a serious ankle trauma is 2011 led him to his more exercise based approach as well as passion for dry needling. He is often frustrated with professional’s who have a poor understanding of what it’s like to go through chronic pain and how to treat it with realistic drug free solutions.
Outside of work Pete is married and a proud father to 3 boys. He enjoys a variety of ocean and nature activities as well as martial arts and tennis.

Dr Clairemarie Wilson
Clairemarie is an experienced chiropractor with an extensive nursing background.
She utilises a range of techniques including Thompson (drop piece), Activator and Diversified (manual adjustments), soft tissue techniques and dry needling making her treatments comfortable and suitable for all ages from pregnancy, babies to grandparents. She incorporates input from other health professionals in co-managing patient care to achieve her patient’s goals and the best results for her patient’s.
Her interest in chiropractic was ignited when she worked as an Athlete Care Nurse at the Sydney Olympic Games. Here, Clairemarie worked alongside Chiropractors treating the world’s best athletes ensuring peak performance and saw how much these elite athletes sought out and appreciated Chiropractic care.
She had previously thought that Chiropractic was for back pain and if you didn’t have any back pain, you didn’t need to see a Chiropractor – unfortunately quite a common misconception which we hear a lot!
Intrigued to learn more about Chiropractic, Clairemarie herself commenced care. Liking what she saw and how amazing she felt under care, Clairemarie went onto study Chiropractic at Murdoch University in WA.
Being a long-distance runner from a young age and going through some health issues, Clairemarie realised the importance of listening to the body and keeping healthy. She reversed Type II Diabetes with the help of a naturopath and is very passionate about lifestyle related conditions which can be improved with some changes in daily habits.
Clairemarie sees Chiropractic as part of the “bigger picture” of health and is just as important as healthy eating, exercise, plenty of sleep and having fun! Chiropractic allows you to reach your true potential naturally, just like the elite athletes competing at the highest levels.
Outside of work Clairemarie and husband Craig enjoy the outdoor lifestyle Australia has to offer, especially walking with their dog, camping and sailing. They are both passionate about rugby union, supporting The Western Force and international teams. Clairemarie still runs, although no longer competitively.
