Chiropractic is a natural health care providing treatment and advice for a wide variety of health conditions. It is a holistic approach to health, assessing areas of dysfunction within the entire body as opposed to focusing purely on areas of pain. Chiropractic works with the structure of the spine and pelvis and the function of the brain and nervous system.
In addition to pregnancy care and chiropractic care for children and babies, our Chiropractors manage neuromusculoskeletal conditions of the spine and extremities such as:
Low back pain and neck pain
Headaches and Migraines
Sports injuries, hip pain and knee pain
Chiropractors are considered Primary Health Care practitioners, with a 5 year university degree. Chiropractors must be a registered member of AHPRA (Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency) and in order to maintain registration annual continuing education is required to ensure up to date knowledge.
Our chiropractors offer individualised, patient centred care for all ages, to help you and your family reach your health goals.
