Our Difference

Spine health and musculoskeletal care experts

Fully qualified, with extensive further postgraduate studies, accredited and with years of experience in treating spinal, sports and musculoskeletal conditions. We are always learning and striving for improved results.

Accurate Diagnosis

This is the crucial starting point for a successful recovery from injury.

Committed to Evidence Based Practice

Evidence Based Practice refers to the integration of clinical expertise, patient values, and the best research evidence into the decision making process for patient care.

We are always keeping in touch with the research literature and use it as a part of the clinical decision making process.

Individualised treatments

Every patient is unique and requires different care. We draw on a diverse range of chiropractic and manual medicine skills, exercise rehabilitation strategies and years of experience, in order to formulate the right care plan for you.

Patient centred care

We strive to provide care that is respectful of and responsive to individual patient preferences, needs, and values, and ensuring that patient values guide all clinical decisions.

Multimodal treatments

No single treatment approach works for all people, all the time. For our treatments we draw from a very diverse range of chiropractic, manual therapy and exercise  rehabilitation strategies. It is often the combination of diverse approaches, acting in synergy that results in the best outcome.

Measurable results

We pride our selves on achieving measurable results. We regularly utilise outcome measures to monitor your progress and the success of our treatment approach.

Whole body approach

We work with the whole musculoskeletal system, from head to toes, muscles and joints.
