What We Treat
Studies have shown that between 60-80% of the general population experience back pain at some point in their lives. Pain can be categorised into neck pain, upper back pain, lower back pain or tailbone pain. It can be a dull ache, a sharp pain, a piercing pain, or a burning sensation.
Non-specific acute back pain with no serious underlying pathology is diagnosed in approximately 98% of back pain patients. Most of these non-specific pathologies can be treated conservatively with chiropractic care.
Sports Related Injuries
Sports injuries commonly occur to people participating in sporting events. In many cases, the injuries are due to overuse, direct impact, or the application of force that is greater than the body part can structurally withstand.
TMD and Jaw Pain
We’ve prepared some research about the connection of disorders of the temporomandibular joint with the cervical spine, and how chiropractic care can help you find relief from jaw pain.

Neck pain is a common problem, with two-thirds of the population experiencing neck pain at some point in their lives.
Neck pain may also occur secondary to injury, other health problems, or be referred from other areas or structures of the body.
Headaches affect approximately two-thirds of the population. They are frequently caused by joint or muscular dysfunction in the neck, poor posture, stress or increased tension.
There is strong evidence indicating that chiropractic treatment can help relieve migraine, cervicogenic and tension-type headaches. Dr John Infante (Chiropractor) has written an article on headaches and migraines, you can read it on our blog.
Postural Related Pain or Discomfort

There are many reasons why a pregnant woman should seek chiropractic care during the course of her entire pregnancy. * In a hospital study, chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy showed that there was a 50% decrease in the need for painkillers during delivery.
