Do you suffer from any of the following:

  • An aching in your head?
  • Migraine headaches?
  • A throbbing sensation in the head?
  • Soreness in your eyes, especially after sitting in front of a computer?
  • Tension behind your eyes?
  • Tension headaches?

Our chiropractic clinic sees more headaches than just about any other kind of problem. This is likely due to how much time people these days spend in front of their screens, hunched over, and stressed. All of these contribute to chronic, painful headaches.

It's not just people who work in offices, however, who experience headaches on a regular basis. This problem is common among the majority of people because of the modern trend towards a sedentary lifestyle.

Headaches can be a regular part of life for many people. Some people might even be able to tell when a headache attack is coming because of the changes they feel in their body. They can start to worry about when their headache will occur and stress over the incoming attack.

Why are you experiencing migraines and headaches?

The factors that lead to headaches and migraines are varies. We know that everyone is different when it comes to headaches and what causes them. This is why we perform an exhaustive assessment for each of our patients, determining the root cause of the headache, which allows us to treat it more effectively.

We initially tried to rule out underlying medical conditions as well as physical trauma. Besides those factors, the most common reason for chronic headaches would be spinal and structural imbalances. These misalignments can be caused by poor posture and indicated by poor posture as well.

However, there are some headaches that are much more serious. If we determine that your headaches are not caused by structural issues, we will refer you to the appropriate specialist.

When you have a structural imbalance in your body or in your spine, this can put pressure onto parts of the head and neck. It can affect your bones, nerves, muscles, discs, and joints.

If there is a musculoskeletal injury to the neck or a mechanical change in the head or neck, this can cause a headache. Most kinds of mechanically caused headaches are cervicogenic headaches or tension headaches.

How We Work

Our chiropractic treatment method looks at the structural imbalances that may be present in your body and specifically your spine. We work to correct those to relieve pressure and pain in your body.

Our method is used all around the globe and is very effective at eliminating pain and correcting structural and postural problems. After treatment begins, you should start to feel better and to regain your mobility.

As your posture improves, this alleviates the pressure that may be present on your neck and spine, particularly the ligaments, bones, muscles, nerves, and discs of those areas. As this happens, you should feel less pain and be able to move unrestricted.

Back Pain

Have you noticed any of the following symptoms:

  • Pain when getting out of bed?
  • Back tightness for back muscle spasms?
  • Slouching posture?
  • Tingling or numb feeling in the leg or buttocks?
  • Severe discomfort between your shoulders?
  • Pain when standing for a while?
  • Restricted movement in the back?
  • Trouble with basic movements like putting on your shoes?

If you have experienced any of these, then you should know that this is a common condition with about 16% of all Australians suffering from back pain in 2017. This statistic from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare shows that about 4,000,000 people in the country suffer from back pain.

There are a number of reasons why you may be experiencing back pain, so we need to examine you thoroughly to determine what the cause is. We will first rule out underlying pathology and physical trauma, and the most common cause beyond those would be an imbalance in the spine.

We often find proof of mechanical imbalances through a patient's poor posture. As you change your posture, specifically moving it into the forward direction, this can place pressure onto your bones, muscles, discs, nerves, and joints in your lower back.

Of course, this could lead to dysfunction and pain.

Back pain is often a chronic condition, in many cases, and it can occur frequently. This can severely limit the way you live, work, and play.

We want you to be able to live your best life, which is why we are dedicated to treating your back pain.

What Causes Back Pain?

Because everybody's back pain is different, personalised treatment is required. However, there are a number of coming back pain causes. These include:

  • Stress
  • Soft bedding
  • Not staying active
  • Sport injury
  • Severe trauma
  • Sitting for too long

We want to determine if our chiropractic care service is the best one for you. That's where we start, and if we determine that chiropractic care isn't right for you, we will refer you to the proper specialist.

We start with a full examination of your symptoms and clinical history.

How We Work

Our method of chiropractic treatment helps us to locate the problem quickly and alleviate pain for our customers efficiently. We work to assess and fix any structural problems and misalignments that may be present in your body and specifically in the spine. Once we start treatment, you may quickly start to feel better and have more mobility.

We use stabilisation to give you better posture over time.

When your posture improves, that relieves pressure that may have been placed on the nerves, disc, muscles, bones, and ligaments around the spine and lower back. You should notice less pain enjoy more mobility.

Shoulder Pain

Are you suffering from any of the following symptoms:

  • Pain in your shoulder when you move it?
  • Pain when performing common tasks like hanging up the laundry?
  • Trouble carrying objects with a specific arm?
  • Pain when you sleep on your side?
  • A dull aching in the joints of the shoulder?

The shoulder joint is supposed to have a lot of mobility and you use it in more activities than you probably realise. Because of that, having shoulder pain can have a serious impact on much of what you do.

Your shoulder joint is comprised of numerous tendons, muscles, nerves, and bones, any one of which could become injured and affect your shoulder and its mobility.

Why are you experiencing shoulder pain?

Often, shoulder pain isn't a problem with just the shoulder joint but will many times be caused by a postural problem or an issue with the entire body. There are a number of reasons why you may be experiencing shoulder pain, which is why our chiropractors will perform a thorough examination and assess your clinical history to make a determination.

We find that most times shoulder pain is caused by imbalances in your posture or structure, unless there is some underlying health problem or evidence of a physical trauma. Poor posture is an evident sign of a structural imbalance.

When someone has a slouched forward leaning posture, this can place pressure on the shoulder joint issues, which can lead to pain and even injury.

If your shoulders are kept in a forward position and you have rounded shoulders, your shoulder is more prone to injury. This puts extra strain on your shoulder joints, and that can take an already existing injury and make it worse. It can also slow down the healing time for injuries.

Here is an example:

Try to set up with proper posture open your arms out to the side. Then, raise your arms over your head and roll your shoulders forward. Move your posture forward at the same time and try to make the same movement with your arms. What you should notice is that it is more difficult to raise your shoulders in a smooth motion while you have the forward posture.

The root cause of your shoulder pain could include any of the following issues:

  • sitting for too long
  • improper posture
  • bedding that is too soft
  • wrong pillow height
  • direct trauma
  • physical injury
  • repetitive strain injury

What We Do for You

we are looking to repair the structural imbalances at the root of shoulder pain. This can give you relief from pain and can give you back mobility in the shoulder.

In order to affect this change, we use a method that assessed your posture and then fix any misalignment or imbalances that may be present in the body. Once you have better posture, you have more freedom of movement and you should feel less pain.

Through stabilisation, we can help you to have better upright posture over a period of time.

As your posture improves, pressure will be relieved from the ligaments, nerves, discs, muscles, and bones, meaning there be less pain around your shoulders and spine. You can start to recover in a natural way and experience long term relief.

Neck Pain

Do you suffer from:

  • Trouble moving your neck?
  • Headaches for no reason?
  • Painful sensations and stiffness in your neck?
  • Soreness and tightness in the shoulders?
  • Tension headaches?
  • Poor posture?

Most people experience neck pain at some point in their life. It happens more often now that people spend so much time in their chairs and much of their day bent over a screen. The slouching posture contributes to chronic neck pain.

When neck pain becomes acute, it can be a debilitating problem, making it painful to move your neck. You might not notice how much you use your neck throughout the day until it starts to give you trouble. Once you experience severe neck pain, you'll understand how important your neck is to your daily activities.

Why do you have neck pain?

There are lots of reasons why you could be experiencing neck pain, and that's why we have to do a thorough assessment of the problem. We start our assessment by ruling out an underlying medical issue or some sort of physical trauma. If we can eliminate those causes, we most often see that neck pain is caused by a mechanical imbalance or a structural problem with the spine.

These imbalances and structural issues can put severe pressure on parts of the neck and head, such as the muscles, discs, nerves, joints, and bones in those areas. A good indication of a mechanical imbalance is poor posture.

Neck pain can become severe and chronic flaring up often in many cases. This can severely limit your ability to both play and work. We want you to be able to live your best life, and that is why we are dedicated to helping you beat neck pain.

Factors That Cause Neck Pain

Neck pain can be different for each and every person. However, we have found common causes behind neck pain, including:

  • The wrong pillow height
  • A mattress that is too soft
  • Sitting for long periods of time
  • Poor posture when sitting
  • Mental stress
  • Physical trauma
  • Injuries caused by physical activity
  • Medical conditions

Our chiropractors will start their assessment by determining if you have a condition that can be helped by chiropractic care. If we believe that you need something other than our treatment, we will refer you to the correct specialist.

We have found that the most common reason for neck pain, particularly when there is forward head posture, is poor overall posture. This kind of forward posture can strain your neck and head and add pressure to the structure in those areas.

How We Treat Neck Pain
Our approach to chiropractic care is one that seeks to correct the overall posture to alleviate pain and improve mobility. This is a globally accepted approach that has been very helpful in treating a number of patients and helping them get back to living a normal life.

Our chiropractors will assess structural problems and try to correct any misalignments. By improving your posture, you will get your mobility back and feel better. This process of improving posture over a period of time is called stabilisation.

As your posture gets better, pressure will be relieved from the neck and spine. Your muscles, bones, nerves, discs, and ligaments will experience less pressure and therefore less pain. This permits the body to heal in its own, natural way.
