In 2009, Lloyed completed a Master of Health Science in Chiropractic at Durban University of Technology, South Africa. He had qualified as a Sport and Exercise Technologist prior to becoming a chiropractor. As part of a broader physical therapy approach, Lloyed may incorporate dry needling and soft tissue fascial release to treat muscle tissue with the goal of reducing pain, inactivating trigger points, and improving movement. Lloyed has a comprehensive understanding when diagnosing, treating, and managing mechanical disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system which can be attributed to personal and professional experience along with the combination of his qualifications.
For many years, Lloyed managed his own family focused Chiropractic practices in South Africa. During that time, he gained experience treating a variety of disorders and work-related injuries, across a range of demographics, including young children, elite athletes and the aged. Lloyed relocated to Australia in 2020 and completed the Council of Chiropractic Education Australasia Competency Based Evaluation. He spent three and a half years working in a family focused chiropractic practice in Kalgoorlie, West Australia, before moving to Brisbane in April 2023 with his wife and three children. Lloyed commenced at Victoria Point Chiropractic in August 2023.
Being fortunate to represent South Africa at two World Cup Indoor Hockey tournaments, Lloyed appreciates the continuous drive and dedication required to achieve optimal performance on and off the field. Lloyed spent two and a half years as the team chiropractor for a Premier League Football Club overseeing injury management and rehabilitation as well as the continued physical assessment of the players. Lloyed has been personally tested in making sure he is not only physically fit but injury free for participation in endurance sports, including the following mountain bike rides: 360NE MTB challenge (360km in 36 hours) and Trans Baviaans 24hr Mountain Biking Marathon (230km in 24 hours).
Lloyed understands the frustration and disappointment that may occur during strenuous training and hard physical labour which can lead to biomechanical imbalances causing old injuries to flare up or new injuries to occur. It is for this reason that he recommends chiropractic and encourages the use of self-maintenance programmes that are specific to every patient.
During his studies, Lloyed received the “Chiropractic Achievement Award for Clinic Excellence”. This was acknowledgement of the inherent care and understanding he demonstrated towards patients’ health and wellbeing. Lloyed’s focus continues to be on assisting all patients to achieve the best possible outcome.
