Chiropractic

Chiropractic is derived from the Greek word meaning 'done by hand'. It is a safe and effective natural therapy based on the relationship between good health and a properly functioning spine and nervous system.

Chiropractic is a simple, effective and drug-free treatment alternative that works with your body to encourage healing, health, and wellbeing.

Chiropractors work with your nervous system which controls every function in your body, from digestion, to sleep, to walking. Your nervous system communicates with each part of your body and sends messages back to the brain via the spinal cord. To ensure your nervous system is free to communicate in this way, as effectively as possible and without interference, chiropractors check that your spine is mobile, well aligned, and healthy.

As a result of being able to communicate effectively, the body is able to function with greater health, strength and balance.

Patients commonly seek chiropractic treatment for conditions such as neck pain, back pain, headaches and sporting injuries. If you are unsure if Chiropractic can help you, or would like to discuss your needs further before booking an appointment, please contact the clinic and we will be happy to help.
