Dr. Scott Wustenberg
As the visionary and principal practitioner behind Optimal Life Natural Medicine, Dr Scott Wustenberg is far from your average Chiropractor
Dr Scott is passionate teacher in nutrition and chiropractic neurology and who holds special interest in helping children with autism and neurological developmental delay. Also a well-respected practitioner in chronic injuries: he has an exceptional ability to discover and treat the root causes of complex health problems. As a result he has successfully helped many patients where countless other options have failed them.
Inspired to become a Chiropractor by his uncle—who first taught Sacral Occipital Technique in Australia in 1974—Scott studied Biochemistry and Physiology at Auckland University, and Chiropractic at the NZCA School of Chiropractic. He graduated in the first class, and has practiced in NZ, Brisbane and Warwick. In addition to his Bachelor of science and his degree in Chiropractic, Scott also holds a Masters degree in Nutrition Medicine.
Practicing a range of Chiropractic techniques, including Neuro-rehabilitation, Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT), Soft Tissue Orthopaedics (STO), Diversified Technique, Biomechanics, and Cranial Therapy; Dr Scott also uses Orthomolecular Medicine—commonly known as Functional Nutrition—to holistically treat patients.
Dr Scott’s passion is evident in coaching people to plan their health for the future, and he is a proponent of unlocking health potential through nutrition and exercise. Having treated many sporting champions, including Super 15 rugby union players, and the NZ Olympic kayaking squad, who went on to win gold at the World championships and silver at the Olympics in the K1; this year it was time for Dr Scott to embrace his inner athlete and placed first and second and third in competitive Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. He truly is a living testimony to the joyous potential of nutrition and physical activity contributing to an optimal life.
