our vision

We aim to make you Feel, Look and Move Better so you can function to your optimal potential. Our first and foremost goal is to help you manage your pain as this is often your most pressing concern and complaint. Often your presenting complaint (pain) is the body’s alarm bell telling you there is a problem. So, don’t delay.

 

This problem is often a result of other issues such as poor posture and muscular imbalances resulting in weaknesses of the spine that results in structural failure, loss of movement and pain. Our purpose is to restore normal posture, alignment and biomechanical function (movement) of the spine, allowing you to Feel, Look and Move Better.

our services

Dr Anthony and Dr Gert are Diversified Chiropractors and use a range of techniques ranging from the traditional Chiropractic adjustment/manipulation to gentle low and non-force techniques. They also utilise auxiliary therapies such as electro-therapy, ultrasound, myofascial needling, Laser therapy, soft tissue manipulation, exercise rehabilitation and nutritional advice. The treatment is tailored to suit the individual patient and their complaint.

 

The practice is well equipped with a range of treatment modalities such as McMannis traction, flexion-distraction, electro-therapy, and ultrasound to name but a few.

 

Dr Anthony and Dr Gert offer professional evidence-based Chiropractic care and advice for general neuro-musculo-skeletal (nerve / muscle and joint) problems. Helping to manage problems such as but not limited to:

Backache

Chiropractic can provide a long-term, successful solution for sufferers of back pain. It is recognised as one of the most effective, and cost-effective treatments for back pain.

NECK PAIN

The modern lifestyle of computers and long hours of deskwork places a large amount of mechanical stress on the neck and shoulders. This mechanical stress leads to a head forward posture and ultimately, pain.

ARTHRITIS & JOINT PAIN

Chiropractic can help manage arthritis and other joint problems.

HEADACHES

Chiropractic helps you manage the cause and not the symptoms of headaches.

WHIPLASH

Whiplash is a traumatic event leading to a host of mechanical and muscular problems rarely revealed on an x-ray. Chiropractic focuses on the root of the problem.

PREGNANCY

Pregnancy is a joyous occasion. The body goes through many rapid changes in a short period, often resulting in mechanical pain syndromes such as back pain. Chiropractic offers a drug-free option for managing these problems.

BIRTH TRAUMA

Natural birth is often traumatic for both mother and child. Chiropractic is suitable for all ages and may help you and your baby recover from this ordeal.

SPORTING INJURIES

Chiropractic focuses on achieving a faster and more effective recovery after a sports injury. Chiropractic looks at the body as a whole. Thus, we do not only treat the injured tissue but endeavour to root out the cause.

POOR POSTURE

Chirohealth utilises powerful posture analysis software to evaluate your posture and monitor progress.

SCIATICA

Sciatica refers to pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which branches from your lower back through your hips and buttocks and down each leg. Treatment involves identifying and managing the cause.

MUSCULAR PAINS

Muscular pains are all too common in modern society whether they are due to trauma, repetitive strain, poor posture and ergonomics, sport or nutritional
