About us

Liberty is about freedom.

We understand that you want the freedom to participate in your life in a healthy and happy way. That’s our goal for you too.

Dr Tony Croke and Tiffani Clingin have been serving the people of Gisborne and surrounding areas since 1994. Liberty is one of the leading chiropractic, counselling and allied health centres in Australia.

Based on more than 25 years of experience and an understanding of the evidence base, we’ll make it very clear what we think is required to achieve a positive result with your case and outline an ideal approach as well as some alternatives to that ideal.

Our core values

The emotional connection we create with our clients means that the results they have
from their care means a great deal to our team.
