Using expert evaluation, diagnosis and a large variety of hands-on techniques, our Chiropractors can ascertain critical types of dysfuntion in your body and successfuly improve spinal, joint, muscular, tendon and ligament problems with manual therapy.

Our Chiropractors additionally take the time to help you to understand your injury or complaint and view it in the context of your entire body. We always endeavour to provide respite from your pain but also enjoy helping you to understand why it occurred and how to prevent it from happening again.
This often includes the provision of exercises (stretching, neuromobilisation, balance or sport specific), postural retraining, advice on work ergonomics, stress management, correct lifting techniques. And we also work with your GP and other health professionals if needed.
We are equipped to look after people at all times of their life including babies and toddlers, school children, university students, sports people (this includes our weekend warriors), mums and dads as well as the grandparents in the family – so irrespective of your age we are able to assist!
All of our chiropractors are registered with AHPRA, members of ATMS, qualified in dry needling and also perform far more continuing professional education than required because they love what they do.
