Nikos Kalogeropoulos was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa. He qualified as a Chiropractor from the now University of Johannesburg in 1998 and in 1999 qualified as a Chiropractic Sport Physician. Along with his private practice he worked at many sporting events, from local events to international events, like the IAAF All African Games. In 2002 he starts his career in a private practice in Athens, Greece while parallel working with the top track and field Athletes of Greece for the upcoming Olympic Games in 2004. He continued to work at local and international sporting events. His experience with athletes expands his field of work in tennis, cycling, basketball, gymnastics, golf and football, rowing, swimming and many more.
His main concern is the restoration of normal functioning of the vertebral column and generally the whole neuromuscular system. The main technique used for restoring normal functioning of the spine is the adjustment. The adjustment is a high velocity, short lever thrust directed specifically to alter the state of the three-joint complex, bringing ease and self-healing. Realizing that perfect functioning of the human body needs more than just perfect workings of the neuromusculoskeletal system. He believes that our emotional state plays a large role in our wellbeing. He therefore engaged in the teachings of Donald Epstein’s Network Spinal Analysis now know as Epienergetics from 2005.

In 2015 he follows Pete Garbutt’s seminars and becomes a certified Enhanced Running instructor. This technique is designed to identify and correct errors in your running technique that can put extra stress on areas such as knees and back.

“A healthy mind in a healthy body”
Decimus Junius Juvenalis
The mind influences the body and the body influences the mind. They are not separate things and therefore addressing the patient’s problem solely from one aspect is like addressing just one part of the whole. That is why at Chiroprattein we see the human from a multidimensional view, physically and emotionally to achieve our greatest potential for wellness.
The techniques used at Chiroprattein are :
“look well to the spine for the causes of disease”, Hippocrates.
