How much better would your family function if everybody was excited to get out of bed, had energy to help each other around the house and was rarely unwell? More than simply not being sick, wellness is about achieving a state of optimum health. Family chiropractic care is the medium that can help you and your family towards being happy, healthy and reaching your potential.
For parents-to-be and newborns, baby and pregnancy chiropractic care can help reduce problems both before, during and after pregnancy.
Regardless of age, we can all have misalignments in our spines. These can stem from the birth process, learning to walk, falling off your bike as a child, to the stress that you collect on a daily basis in the office as a working adult.
Early detection is ideal as, if left uncorrected, subluxations (nerve interference) may disturb the delicate spinal cord nerves–the very nerves that send every message throughout you or your youngster's body to the muscles, organs and glands.
Your health is your greatest asset. It affects your performance and your ability to enjoy every aspect of your life; physically, mentally, emotionally, and in your work and family life.
Chiropractic care has been known to help you and your children to cope with all the slips, bumps, falls and upsets from childhood to adulthood. It allows for growth, flexibility and strength.
To invest in your health and wellbeing will pay dividend in every area of your life–chiropractic care helps your body and brain to function at its best.
We care for a range of sportspeople with our specific chiropractic techniques–from professionals to amateur athletes, as well as weekend warriors.
Whether you’re a sportsperson who simply enjoys the outdoors and wants more from your performance or you’re no longer able to do what you enjoy, chiropractic care can be tailored to suit your individual needs.
Reducing stress on your nervous system through sports chiropractic can lead to much greater success. As most athletes are aware, sometimes the difference between being first and last can be milliseconds.
Recent studies have shown that athletes under chiropractic care show improved coordination and agility, and up to 30 % improvement in reaction times, in comparison to those not receiving chiropractic care (1).

From knees to back and neck pain, our chiropractors tailor chiropractic care to the individual. In our opinion, this is essential for sports and performance as each individual has different goals and dreams.
Other studies have shown chiropractic care can provide physical improvements such as increased lung function and capacity, lowered resting pulse rate and blood pressure. Increased power and strength have also been reported.

More and more people are interested in a higher level of health called wellness. They may choose to eat well, exercise often and have a good work/ life balance. A wellness approach to health means adopting a variety of healthy habits, thus chiropractic care becomes an important addition.
Like maintaining your teeth, your car, your family, or your faith, maintaining the integrity of your nerve system requires an ongoing investment. Maintaining a properly functioning nerve system is essential if you want to be your very best.
Wellness care applies to everyone who cares about maintaining their body’s functionality to be the best it can be.
Common realisations for people who seek better functionality might be: lack of concentration, poor balance, tiredness, stress, struggles with digestion, feeling flat on their feet, have poor reaction times or, more often than not, generally feel their system is out of sync.
Recent studies have shown that people under asymptomatic and long-term chiropractic care enjoy greater quality of life and overall health.
‘The data reviewed lend support to the contention that chiropractic adjustments, often for the purpose of correcting vertebral subluxation, confer measurable health benefits to people regardless of the presence or absence of symptoms. A significant amount of preliminary evidence supports that people without symptoms can benefit from chiropractic care. Improved function can be objectively measured in asymptomatic individuals following chiropractic care in a number of body systems often by relatively non-invasive means.’ (6)
It is important to remember that regardless of the type of healthcare provider or procedure, it is the body's intelligence ultimately; intelligence that we rely on to do the healing.

Having a baby can be one of the most amazing, rewarding and challenging times in a parent's life. Many of us are aware that during pregnancy a person’s body takes on a myriad of changes. With these changes can come pains and discomfort. Due to the frequency of these concerns within pregnancy, they can often be thought of as “normal” and many think they have to live with them for the duration of their pregnancy.
Half of women report having back pain at some point during pregnancy, with the sacroiliac joints of the pelvis being most commonly affected. Many will also experience:
These changes will affect one's structure and in turn the function of your nervous system. Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy can reduce the need for outside intervention, and in most circumstances have a positive effect on alleviation of the above scenarios.
Our chiropractors have the ability to care for babies from the day they are born. Paediatric care is very gentle (no more pressure on their spine than you would use to test the ripeness of a tomato).
The birth process and infancy can come with a surprising amount of stress. By correcting tensions and subluxations when they first arise, depending on the individual circumstances, chiropractic can help your child to grow up as healthy and happy as possible.
Chiropractic checkups early in life may detect spinal problems while they are still easily correctable. This can be one of the most valuable gifts a parent could give to their child. Parents often give feedback of their children seeming healthier than other children.
