Chiropractic Care

Chiropractors are the spinal health experts. They treat back pain, neck pain, sciatica, headaches, back spasm, whiplash and migraines. There are over 300,000 consultations with Australian chiropractors each week. Through their extensive five-year university training, chiropractors are uniquely positioned to help Australians lead healthy lifestyles through drug-free care.


Back Pain

When patients experience lower back pain a thorough case history is first taken to determine the cause and (likely) mechanism of the lower back injury and to confirm whether chiropractic treatment is suitable. Our team takes the time to understand your presenting condition. A full examination of your lower back then takes place. This includes an assessment of the lower back's range of movement, as well as a thorough review of the muscle and neurological systems. Where required, further tests (such as x-rays) are recommended to help with the diagnostic process.

Neck Pain

The cause of neck pain can be large and varied. Motor car accidents, falls, sporting injuries, repetitive movements, bad posture and the aging process can all result in producing this very common and irritating condition. While changing your pillow or mattress may help, it is important to have the area correctly evaluated and assessed so that a proper diagnosis can be established and the correct treatment administered.



Headaches will affect over 80% of people sometime during their lives. Whether it is of a chronic (long term) or acute (short term) type, headaches can be quite debilitating. It can affect concentration, mood, productivity and relationships. Medication is the normal form of therapy for both acute and chronic headaches. However, chiropractic care offers an alternative approach, a natural one with no drugs. Chiropractic uses the body’s natural ability to heal.


Injuries, when left alone, can cause greater problems beyond their original site of occurrence. Hence an injured shoulder could result in neck pain, chronic and frequent headaches, elbow and wrist stiffness. A hip injury can result in lower and upper back and knee pain. Chiropractic care could be the solution to managing both your chronic (long term) and acute (short term) injuries.


Chronic Pain

There are many causes of chronic pain but the most common is usually where an injury or trauma has occurred and no treatment is sought, resulting in long-term, persistent pain. It can keep you awake at night and, more importantly, it may prevent you from leading a full and productive life. The control and management of chronic pain does not need to be drug dependent. Our chiropractic clinic near Alphington offers treatments that are based on natural alternatives and which in many cases have been found to help improve this most challenging condition. Chiropractic focuses on correcting spinal dysfunction, increasing joint mobility and restoring proper muscular function.


Sciatica can be a debilitating condition that not only stops you from performing simple tasks but can also have a major impact both on your life and those people around you. Sciatica refers to pain caused by the sciatic nerve which starts in the lower back and runs through the buttock and down the back of the leg. It is important to properly assess, diagnose and treat the cause of sciatica correctly.
