Chiropractic Services

Our Chiropractic Treatments

Our chiropractors Ian Curnow and Ashlee Batters offer chiropractic health care tailored to the specific needs of
the individual.  The type of treatment is varied according to the age and health of the individual.
An initial consultation involves consultation and treatment (if clinically appropriate).
Our Chiropractors treatment area's include:

 

Back Pain and Sciatica

 

Some people may be prone to back pain, as the back area supports a lot of our body weight, and relies heavily on the strength of the vertebrae in our spine.

 

Headaches and Migraines

It is estimated that between 75-90% of the population experience one or more headaches every year. Headaches may be symptomatic of an underlying condition such as hypertension, infection or other issues.

Shoulder Pain, Rotator Cuff and Impingements

The shoulder allows the greatest range of motion of any joint in the body. This is due to the four tendons which stabilise the upper arm bone in the shoulder socket.

Neck Pain and Injuries, Whiplash and Accidents

Many people suffering from neck pain have muscle tightness. This tightness may be due to injury or poor posture.

Wrist Injuries, Tendinopathy, RSI and Carpel Tunnel Syndrome

Our wrist is made up of 8 small bones (carpal bones).  These bones are held together by ligaments.  In addition to these ligaments, many small muscles, nerves, tendons and blood vessels pass through the wrist to supply your hand (6).

Running and Gait Analysis / Performance

In Australia about 25% of the population participate in some form of running (1). Running is popular as a means to get and stay fit, as a stand-alone sport, and as a large component in many sporting codes.

Posture

Posture is essentially the position of the body in space, the relationship of the body parts—head, trunk, and limbs—to each other. Changes in posture occur when any part of the body is moved (5).

Knee Pain

Besides spinal conditions, knee pain is one of the most common ailments of the musculoskeletal system (10).

Foot and Ankle Problems

In addition many of us participate in activities such as running and aerobic exercise that add many more steps and stress to feet.

Scoliosis

When the body is viewed from behind, a normal spine appears straight without much deviation from side-to-side.

Back Pain and Spinal Care During Pregnancy

Pregnancy and Birth is a Natural Process, the role of your health provider is to allow your body to adapt and function as it was designed to and support you during this important time.

Sports Injury Management and Performance Enhancement

There are a number of conditions that can result from playing sports. Overuse and strain injuries are most common. 

BURSITIS

Our bodies contain many bursae (150 +) which are usually found between bony surfaces and overlying tendons (1).

Arthritis and Spondyolosis

Arthritis is often referred to as a single disease. In fact, it is a term for more than 100 medical conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system, specifically joints where two or more bones meet (1,2).

 Kingscliff Massage

Massage is the manual manipulation of soft tissue and includes holding, causing movement, and/or applying pressure to the muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia. It is applied to patients experiencing subacute and chronic pain, stress and anxiety,  rehabilitation and maintenance of health conditions (1).

Remedial Massage is the objective assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of the signs, symptoms and causes of biomechanical dysfunction or injury, using specific mobilisation techniques, in order to restore normal health and function (1).
