Chiropractic is a primary health care profession specializing in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of biomechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system (muscles and joints) and the affects of those disorders on the function of the nervous system and ones health in general. Our ability to improve function in the neuromusculoskeletal system and overall quality of life, health and well being without the use of drugs or surgery sets chiropractic apart in the health care system.

Chiropractic is an entirely natural and holistic approach to treating and healing neuromusculoskeletal (nerve,muscle and joint) sources of pain and discomfort.Simultaneously we encourage and empower the individual to take responsibi lity for their own health through patient education. Knowledge is POWER!

Chiropractic practitioners employ a host of techniques and modalities in their treatment protocol including spinal and other joint adjustments, deep tissue massage, joint mobilizations, muscle stretching,trigger point therapy encompassing ischaemic compression and myofascial dry needling, the use of ultrasound, TENS, interferential current, cryo and thermotherapy, active release techniques, exercise instruction and patient education.
