Meet the Team



We want you to be able to live an active, healthy lifestyle. Our treatments are tailored to meet your goals and expectations. While treating pain is an important aspect of what we do, we believe that finding and correcting the underlying cause of dysfunction will give you improved and long lasting results. We strive to keep up to date with the latest musculoskeletal evidence and offer a range of chiropractic services that deliver great outcomes. 

Both our Chiropractors have a primary focus. Claudia Cadona is our pregnancy and paediatric Chiropractor and Daniel Rothenberg is our Sports Chiropractor.


Daniel Rothenberg

Sports Chiropractor

  • Masters of Chiropractic
  • Masters of Exercise Science Major in Strength & Conditioning (2019)


I’m Daniel Rothenberg and I’m the owner and principal chiropractor at Scope Chiropractic.

I first experienced Chiropractic care in my teenage years after suffering with multiple hamstring tears. I followed the usual routes of treatment to no avail. I came across a fantastic Chiropractor who looked holistically at my movement patterns and was able to eliminate my recurrent injuries.

I grew up in Sydney, and after completing my Masters of Chiropractic at Macquarie university I moved to Toowoomba. There I worked for many years in a sports based clinic as well as working as a sports Chiropractor for Downs Rugby Union in both the regional and South Queensland teams. My roles with the rugby teams included on-field injury management and diagnosis, strapping and post injury treatment and rehabilitation.

My constant drive for clinical excellence has lead me to further studies in western acupuncture, active release technique, functional movement assessment and sports injury management. I am also currently studying my Masters in Exercise Science (Strength & Conditioning). My treatments are tailored to the needs of the person in front of me and often includes a combination of the above methods.

I am currently member of Chiropractic Australia, Sports Chiropractic Australia, Sports Medicine Australia and FICS. Alongside this, I am a level 1 Original Strength Coach and hold level 1 Functional Movement Screen (FMS) and Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) qualifications.


Claudia Cadona

Pregnancy & Paediatric Chiropractor

  • Masters of Chiropractic
  • Diploma of Paediatric Chiropractic
  • Bachelor of Medical Science


Hi, I’m Claudia Cadona, pregnancy and paediatric chiropractor. My husband, Daniel, and I opened Scope Chiropractic to provide quality chiropractic care for the families of east Brisbane.


After completing my Bachelor of Science at QUT in Brisbane I decided I wanted a more hands on approach to helping people and completed my Masters of Chiropractic in Sydney. After working as a chiropractor for several years I developed a passion for working with babies. This led me to completing a Diploma of Chiropractic Paediatrics, a 2-year full-time degree. My scope of practice is pediatrics as I strongly believe all bubs should have the ability to live up to their full potential. My expertise is in ensuring they have a fully functioning nervous system and are healthy on the inside and out. I work closely with a number of lactation consultants, paediatric dentists, midwives and health care nurses throughout Brisbane.
