Our mission: your health!
Our mission is to bring you the lifestyle benefits of good Neuromusculoskeletal (NMS) health and well-being.
Your NMS — your joints, bones, spine; your muscles, ligaments, tendons; and your nerves — work together so you can hold yourself up and move, but also send the signals that all the systems in your body need to function.
You can see how vital maintaining this core system is for your overall health and well-being. That’s why we’re so passionate about helping you repair, restore, rehab or reset your NMS.
We have your back
One reason I started BACK UP is to set the tone of how you are treated:
We care about you and your goals.
We respect you. Your condition. Your time. Your pace. Your privacy.
We’re dedicated to your health. We don’t give up on you. We resolve your problems, no matter how complex, no matter how packed your schedule.
We’re here for you. Our Sydney CBD BACK UP clinic is open Monday to Friday 7:30am to 7:00pm and Saturday 8:00am to 2:00pm. If you have an emergency, or a sudden severe issue, we fit you in, even after hours. When you’re traveling, we guide and advise you via phone, SMS, email.
We’re professional, organised, scientific and honest. We give a clear picture of where you stand, how minor or complex your conditions and your best treatment options.
We make it easy and calm for you. We designed everything about BACK UP to be a calm, convenient experience – from booking to insurance claims to our Sydney CBD clinic and everything in between.
We hope you love your BACK UP experience as much as we do.

Dr. Raf Teixeira, Chiropractor and founder
What inspired me to chiropractic
In my formative years, I was fortunate to have fitness prominent in my daily life. In my decade as a member of the Brazilian national swim team, I was supported by a highly capable team of chiropractors, osteopaths and physiotherapists.
They showed me how, with science, evidence and experience, you could quickly recover from injuries, prevent repetitive motion issues, and build a daily practice that gets you to your best performance.
After my swim years, I embarked on my chiropractic journey. I applied the same formula that served me well in swimming – using systematic discipline to turn my passion for Neuromusculoskeletal (NMS) wellbeing into becoming a chiropractor.
After years of treating hundreds of people, I had the opportunity to fulfil the dream of opening my own practice, and BACK UP was born.
Education and Credentials
I undertook rigourous education in how the body works and how to restore Neuromusculoskeletal wellbeing.
I studied five years at university, earning a Bachelor of Chiropractic Science and a Master of Chiropractic from Macquarie University in Sydney. While studying, I worked as a swim coach and personal trainer specialising in musculoskeletal rehab, strength and conditioning. I am a member of Chiropractic Australia.
I continue to push the state-of-the-art via clinical experience, continual education and training, and keeping abreast of latest research.
