Meet Dr. Marcus Chacos  (Chiropractor)

Choosing a Career in Chiropractic

Dr Marcus

Marcus was fascinated with the human body and healthcare at school, so much so, when he won an award for public speaking and debating in Year 10, he bought an anatomy and physiology textbook with his prize money! It was the influence of his then-girlfriend (and future wife) that motivated Marcus to enter chiropractic school.

Dr Marcus Chacos then enrolled at Macquarie University (then the Sydney College of Chiropractic) to begin his career as a chiropractor. Dr Marcus remembers the exact moment that he understood the gifts and power of chiropractic and had chosen the right path for himself.

At 7 pm on a Tuesday night, two days into his chiropractic degree, he had a lecture on chiropractic philosophy from Dr John Kelly. The lecture began with the words, “There is a universal intelligence in all matter that constantly gives itself other properties, thus maintaining itself in existence.” While at the time, Dr Marcus recalls not fully understanding what that meant, he was simultaneously inspired, amazed and excited.

That lecture defined his purpose and passion from that point onward.

A Passion for Helping Others

Dr Marcus Chacos’ passion and involvement with chiropractic has only grown since that moment. Before finishing at Macquarie, he received a Bachelor of Science in Anatomy from the University of New South Wales. Then, he completed a Master of Chiropractic at Macquarie University. Dr Chacos had the good fortune to be mentored by Dr John Kelly, a well-known chiropractor who taught him the value of constantly learning more and working with other practitioners to assist patients in achieving the results they seek.

To expand his knowledge, Dr Marcus has completed a significant amount of postgraduate studies, including a Graduate Diploma in Clinical Nutrition and a Master’s in Chiropractic Sports Science. Dr Marcus’ expertise allows him to assist people with their diet and nutrition.

Central to being able to help patients experience the health outcomes they desire, is the chiropractic philosophy central to Dr Marcus’ approach to health. The body has an innate intelligence and inborn wisdom—the body’s self-healing, self-regulating and self-organising capabilities. Dr Marcus understands that the purpose of chiropractic is to remove interference of the healing potential of the body so that everyone can experience and express their health and life potential.

Developing a Holistic Approach

Dr Marcus’ approach to care looks at healing on all levels. With an integrated model of care, the team at Provolution Health are able to achieve remarkable results for people, even if other avenues of care have failed. Dr Chacos seeks to uncover and understand the needs of each patient by undertaking appropriate history, examination and testing, and holistically applying the most appropriate forms of care for a total healing blueprint.

The method to achieve these outcomes is a system Dr Chacos used, the Total Healing Blueprint. Central to this approach is an understanding that correcting interference and restoring balance to the nervous system, the physical body, the biochemistry and physiology of the body, as well as a person’s emotional and mental state is necessary in order to allow healing to take place.

Dr Chacos also takes into consideration genetic factors, epigenetics and a person’s life experience. This holistic perspective and comprehensive worldview allows Dr Marcus to uncover the cause of the person’s presentation, not merely the symptoms they present with. When you address the underlying cause and mechanism of a complaint, healing is inevitable.
