At times the bones of the spine which are designed to protect the spinal nerves and cord are affected by daily stressors, repetitive strain and trauma. This may cause interference of the nerves' ability to function effectively. Your body relies on good nerve function to heal and protect itself. Chiropractic care aims to restore and maintain the proper relationship between the spine and the nervous system.
We take a detailed history of your problem including your orthopaedic and neurological status. Where required, x-ray referral may be necessary to gain a thorough understanding of your physical health to complete the diagnosis and so aid correction of your ailment. Chiropractic adjustments and muscle release/activation, combined with comprehensive postural advice and excercises restore function and balance to the spine and nervous system.

When muscles and tendons become fatigued, knotted, damaged, tight or immobile, remedial massage offers a healing treatment. Remedial massage utilises several techniques to support and speed up the body's healing processes. It can be deep or shallow, soft or strong, relaxing or intense.
The massage is generally applied directly to the skin using lubricating oils. The massage helps to increase blood flow, shift toxins and relieve tension and stress.
