We are experienced in providing effective care for the following symptoms, conditions and health goals:

✓ Low Back Pain

If you have low back pain it can affect every aspect of your life. Pain can be aching, throbbing or tightness, or it can be sharp or stabbing. Our chiropractors’ first priority is to identify what is causing your low back pain so they can recommend a strategy that corrects the cause rather than just short-term, temporary relief.

✓ Hip Pain

Hip and pelvic problems can create symptoms such as groin pain, hip pain when lying in bed, pain when walking, low back pain and restriction with activities like putting on shoes, socks or underwear.

✓ Pelvic Pain

Your Pelvis is the foundation of your spine. Just like a building, if your foundation is out of balance it can affect everything above (and below).

✓ Slipped Disc

If you have a ‘slipped disc’ you are likely to be in a lot of pain or discomfort. There is a loss of stability in your low back and your muscles are going into spasm to limit your movement.

✓ Neck Pain

Neck pain can range from annoying to debilitating. it can be the result of a trauma, such as a whiplash injury, a head knock or sleeping awkwardly, or neck pain can come on gradually from poor posture, stress or repetitive strain. Our chiropractors are skilled at identifying and correcting the cause of neck pain to eliminate pain and restore normal movement.

✓ Headaches

Relief of headaches without medication is one of the most common reasons people see us at Family Chiropractic. Our clinical experience, along with recent research, shows that a high number of headaches and migraines are caused by problems in the neck. Correcting neck alignment and movement often reduces or eliminates headaches.

✓ Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain and restriction is one of the most common problems we help with at Family Chiropractic. People with shoulder problems often have difficulty getting comfortable in bed, putting on clothes or lifting things above shoulder height. Uncorrected shoulder problems can lead to severe restriction or ‘frozen shoulder’.

✓ Rib Pain

Your ribs are quite mobile and can become stuck or misaligned just like other joints in your body. Rib pain can be very painful and is often misdiagnosed. It can be felt as pain in the chest or in the back depending on where the ribs have become misaligned.

✓ Pins & Needles

We commonly help people who are experiencing pins and needles, especially in the hands, arms or feet/legs. The cause of the pins and needles is often nerve irritation from spinal dysfunction. Nerve irritation can occur when spinal joints are misaligned, not moving properly or have lost their normal spacing.

✓ Numbness

If you’re experiencing numbness you may have a problem with your nerves. A nerve may be damaged or irritated causing interruption to messages between your brain and body. Nerve irritation is frequently caused by misalignments or dysfunction in the spine.

✓ Sciatica

‘Sciatica’ is a medical term that describes a very painful condition where there is a burning or shooting pain down your leg. The pain down your leg can have a number of different causes and the first step for our chiropractors will be to determine what the underlying cause is so they can help you find relief as soon as possible.

✓ Nerve Pain

Like numbness, pins and needles and sciatica, nerve pain is often caused by problems in the spine. Nerve pain can be experienced as pain down your arms or legs, in your hands or feet or in your neck or backside.

✓ Sports Injuries

Sports injuries are among the most frequent reasons that strong, mobile and healthy people present to us at Family Chiropractic. Even a minor injury can take you out of the sport you love for weeks at a time and starts reducing the fitness, mobility, community and mental health benefits we get from sport.

✓ Pregnancy

Pregnancy can create extra stress and demand on a woman’s body that may result in pain or other symptoms in your neck, low back, pelvis, pubic symphysis, ribs, hips, shoulders and more. Our chiropractors use gentle, pregnancy-specific techniques to help you adapt to the body changes that happen during pregnancy.

✓ Babies & Kids

Chiropractic care is different for babies and kids than it is for adults. Our chiropractors are trained in age-appropriate methods that are gentle and safe. We are members of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA).

✓ Poor Mobility

Your body was made to move. Unfortunately some people lose mobility as they get older and it can affect every part of life. What most people don’t realise however is that you can maintain and even improve your mobility as you age.

✓ Posture

Poor posture doesn’t just look bad, it creates extra strain on muscles and joints, causes neck pain and headaches and has a range of associated health problems. We have seen a sharp increase in people with poor posture since the introduction of smartphones and tablets. Not surprisingly, kids are among the most common people we help with posture problems.

✓ Scoliosis

If you or your child has scoliosis, you may be aware of asymmetries like one shoulder or hip higher than the other, or ribs being more prominent on one side. Scoliosis is often picked up by a swimming instructor or dance teacher who notices these asymmetries. The good news is that chiropractic care can help.
