Wellness Care

The purpose of Chiropractic care is not to treat or cure a condition, but to remove interference, and to gain balance within the nervous system. Chiropractic not only helps to restore a state of health to your body, it aims to take you to the next level of optimum health – wellness.


Research shows that Chiropractic care helps to relieve back pain for up to 85% of pregnant women. By correcting subluxations and assisting your spine to become as flexible and strong as possible, Chiropractic care helps your body adapt to the changing pressures of pregnancy.


Chiropractors are trained to detect and correct nervous system interference caused by subluxations in the spine. There can be early warning signs that your child’s nervous system may not be functioning at its best; sleeping problems, irritability, recurrent infections, favouring one side of their neck, poor posture and limited joint movement.


Chiropractic care has been shown to enhance co-ordination, speed and overall performance. It can also help your body to become more mobile, flexible and help to keep your muscles in peak condition. Research has shown that regular Chiropractic care can improve athletic ability and performance and also reduce the risk of injury.

Pain conditions

Chiropractic has stood the test of time and is a go-to, natural pain relief solution for people suffering with acute and chronic pain. Headaches and migraines, sciatica, neurological pain in the back, arms, legs, hands and feet along with hip, knee, ankle and thigh pain; are just a few of the conditions that respond amazingly well.
