Common conditions chiropractors treat

Our chiropractors are highly trained and use the latest state-of-the-art equipment to better understand how to help patients feel better and fix the underlying cause of their problems. Keep reading for some of the most common conditions our chiropractors can treat.

Back pain

Upper, middle, and lower back pain are common presentations in our clinic. A third of all people will suffer back pain at some point in their lifetime, some acutely, and others chronically, often experiencing back pain for decades.

Disc and nerve problems

A bulging disc can compress a nerve exiting your spine, and can cause pain, stiffness, reduced range of motion, numbness and tingling along the nerve’s path, and weakness in the muscles that the nerve supplies.

Headaches can be debilitating to those that suffer from them regularly, and can be accompanied by dizziness, ringing in the ears, numbness and tingling in the arms and hands. They can be caused by tight muscles and nerve impingement.

Hip issues

Pain in the hip can be caused by problems in the hip joint itself, the surrounding structures of the hip such as nerves, muscles, and ligaments. It can also be a result of referred pain from the lower back.

Neck pain

Neck pain can present as a general ache from the neck to the shoulders as we sit at our work desks, to a sudden stiff neck as we wake one morning. It is most commonly seen in those with sedentary jobs and a forward head posture.

Postural issues and scoliosis

A hunched back and forward head posture are far too common these days, with more children presenting to the clinic. Scoliosis, a curve in the spine, can often be corrected with chiropractic treatment and strengthening.


Sciatica describes ‘pain down the buttocks and/or leg’ and is a common symptom that accompanies back pain, however can present on its own. Patients can feel the pain or sensation right down to their toes and is a sign of a pinched nerve.

Shoulder problems

Shoulder pain and injuries can often coincide with misalignments of the cervical spine (the joints of the neck). If misalignments exist, these can weaken the various components of the shoulder complex making it more susceptible to injury.

Sports injuries and performance

Often a knock or a sprain during sport can cause misalignments in your spine. Returning the spine to alignment can help increase range of motion, and improve function of nerves, joints and muscles thus improving performance.

Stress and fatigue

The connection between the health of our nervous system and our mental health is a remarkable one. If ones nervous system is not functioning optimally, it can make us feel not just pain, but a range of psychological symptoms as well.


Subluxation is a term used to describe a vertebrae/spinal joint that is misaligned and not sitting in its correct position. Subluxations can can occur along the full length of the spine, and can result in a disturbance of the functioning of the nervous system.
