Brent Verco has been working as Chiropractor in Okinawa since 2020 and has practised in Japan since 2017. After the covid lockdowns forced him travel from his usual practise in Niseko Hokkaido he established Sunabe Chiropractic and now spends his time working between the tropical island paradise of Okinawa and the winter wonderland of Niseko.

Brent Verco began his career as working for renowned Osteopath Dr Neil Gregory in Sydney.

He graduated from his Masters of Chiropractic in 2002, working briefly in Sydney before deciding to make a lifestyle change and head for the laid back Northern NSW coast.

Brent completed further studies in Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT) which he uses as his basis to understand distortions in structure. Growing frustrated with the traditional Chiropractic techniques he started to combine Chiropractic adjustments with some of the latest soft tissue and muscle techniques, to ensure that the muscular systems tone is reduced with each treatment and found far more superior results with the approach.

Brent’s 12 years in Byron bay gave him a good understanding of the unique needs of the tourist in need as well as servicing his local community. He has a keen interest in snow sport related injuries, as well as other sporting niggles that impair your top performance.

When Brent is not practicing Chiropractic in either Okinawa or Niseko , you can find him riding the amazing mountains of Niseko himself, playing music, and mountain biking with his Japanese wife Aya and 4yr old son, whom he lives with in Niseko town just out of Hirafu.

Brent is a proud member of the Japanese Association of Chiropractors and Chiropractic Australia. He also carries full professional indemnity insurance and keeps up to date with best industry standards.

Just had my first visit. The whole crew was very welcoming, it felt like walking into a friend’s house. Kerry hooked me up with a walking boot (foot fracture), which are so hard to find here unless you are a patient at the US Naval Hospital. He iced my foot with his fancy ice machine :) within 15 minutes all the swelling was gone. He is very knowledgeable, friendly and caring. I am very satisfied. Looking forward to the next visit. Finally I am mobile again. Thank you Kerry. Kind Regards Bettina

I am so grateful for the staff at Okinawa Sports and Spinal. I started seeing Brent for regular chiropractic adjustments and was thrilled when Naomi joined the team to offer massage therapy - I have been able to receive and enjoy her wonderful massage as well. Their office and treatment spaces are so clean and comfortable and I feel completely at ease when I am there. They truly care about their clients and inquire kindly about my family and work and how I'm feeling - remembering our conversations and details from weeks and months past. When at Okinawa Sports and Spinal, I feel like a member of an extended care family rather than just another customer. If you are looking for a wonderful place to address any of your body care needs, especially if pregnant or postpartum, I highly recommend booking ASAP.
