Kelly was a member of the 1998 inaugural graduating class of the New Zealand College of Chiropractic. Besides his chiropractic degree, he also holds a Bachelor of Science majoring in physiology and a PhD in Health Science from the University of Auckland.

His PhD research examined the impact of chiropractic care on sensorimotor function and falls risk in older adults. With over 50 published research articles in peer-reviewed journals, he has a strong focus on studying the effects of chiropractic care on nervous system function and the reliability and validity of vertebral subluxation indicators. His research has earned recognition with numerous international awards and generated close to $3 million in external research funding for the College.

He has 10 years of private practice experience as a chiropractor and has been teaching at the New Zealand College of Chiropractic since 2000. After being a key member of the College’s research team, he was appointed as the College’s President in 2021. He was honoured with the titles of ‘Chiropractor of the Year’ by the New Zealand College of Chiropractic Alumni Association in 2012 and by the New Zealand Chiropractors’ Association in 2014, and received the Staff Member of the Year award from the New Zealand College of Chiropractic in 2019.
