First Choice Chiropractic Our Team

Chiropractor – Chermside

Robbie was born in Mansfield, Victoria. His father is a 6th generation grazier for sheep and cattle and his mum has been a winemaker for over 30 years with her self-titled label Ros Ritchie Wines and as such, both of his parents had been utilising chiropractic care for as long as he can remember.

After 5 years of study at RMIT University in Melbourne and both a Bachelor and Master degree under his belt Robbie journeyed to Warwick, Queensland to begin his Chiropractic career.
Robbie’s passion for spreading the Chiropractic message of health and drive to own his own practice melded perfectly when he opened Mansfield Chiropractic & Wellbeing in his hometown in 2014.

In early 2015 he purchased First Choice Chiropractic (FCC) in Chermside (Brisbane). Robbie then
expanded FCC into Warwick at the end of 2015 where he and his Wife (and associate) Jade have
lived since moving to QLD, recently Jade and Robbie moved to Chermside, while still commuting to Warwick a few days per week. Robbie currently practises at both the Chermside and Warwick clinics.

Robbie’s hobbies include Indoor Skydiving, golf, reading, reformer pilates and gym. His future goals include finishing his certification in the Diplomate of Chiropractic Paediatrics program and to become even more involved in the local community.

He hopes to expand FCC into more suburbs around the Brisbane area after adding Toowong and Springfield to the group and to continue to provide great quality Chiropractic care to more Australians!
