North Fremantle Chiropractic is the only sports focused chiropractic office in the region. It was opened by Dr Nathan and his partner Gypsy in March of 2020. With a background in strength sports including Rugby and Powerlifting, Nathan saw a huge array of problems with the health care being offered to athletes and active individuals alike. There was no understanding from treating professionals of the demands of these people’s sports and the advice being provided to them was simply insufficient and often inappropriate for what they needed.
I knew we could do better and provide the experience people were looking for which is why we opened NFC. Here we provide unique evaluation through the HumanTrak movement analysis system and treatment plans that combine years of clinical practice and actual athletic experience to get results that actually matter.

Dr. Nathan Bridger is a Sports and Family Chiropractor, Strength and Conditioning Coach, Speaker, Health Educator and Beard Enthusiast. He has spoken to groups of people all over the world and regularly speaks around Australia to people wanting to get healthier, improve their performance, and to other health practitioners wanting to improve the outcomes of their clients.
Dr Nathan has a particular interest in strength sports such as Powerlifting, Bodybuilding, Strongman and CrossFit. Having competed in all the above sports (apart from bodybuilding) and taken care of elite level athletes in all the above sports and many more, he has a unique perspective in combing sports chiropractic with athletic performance.
He came to Chiropractic as a teenager after suffering significant injuries playing Rugby Union to his spine and shoulders. The results he received through care is what lead him to study Chiropractic at Murdoch University, graduating in 2013 with distinction. Whilst at university, Nathan had the privilege of attending the Hands On India trip where he was part of a team providing complimentary care in rural north west India to the under-privileged locals.
After graduation, Dr Nathan worked briefly in the north of Perth before seizing an opportunity to run a Chiropractic office in Lima Peru (yes, he now speaks Spanish… poorly) where he spent almost two years. He returned to Australia working in Melbourne before finally settling in Geelong where he became the ‘go to’ sports chiropractor for the region.
Nathan returns to North Fremantle where he grew up and spent almost five years working on the wharf, before he commenced uni. In his spare time, you will find him with family and friends or more likely in the gym.
Gypsy-Rose Swain is the Practice Manager and Chiropractic Assistant at North Fremantle Chiropractic. She is a mother to a beautiful baby girl Poppy, and has returned home to North Fremantle after living in Geelong Victoria for the past 2 years. Prior to NFC, Gypsy was working in Human Resources within the health care and retail industry.
