Chiropractic Care

The majority of people who seek a chiropractor are coming because they have either back pain, neck pain or headaches. This is because mechanical issues can cause, contribute to or be a consequence headaches and migraines. As will all initial assessments our chiropractor will conduct a physical, neurological and orthopaedic testing to determine what is the root cause of the headache. In most cases there is an association between the mechanical stress and the symptoms you are experience. If this is the case and chiropractic care is appropriate for you then a plan of action will be developed. There will be ample opportunity for you to discuss the proposed care and ask any questions before proceeding. To ensure that you have a complete understanding of how to get the most benefit out of our care, your plan of action will include attending a 30min introduction to chiropractic self care workshop.

Dizziness versus vertigo. What’s the difference?

People often speak of dizziness and vertigo interchangeably.

Vertigo is a sense of spinning or moving even though you are not actually moving. Although this has many causes it is frequently disorientating and distressing and should be investigated further. Often the symptoms are accompanied by nausea and vomiting.
