Our Backs are Like Burgers

By Mel   •   October 20th, 2021


Disc bulge? Pinched nerve? Low back pain? These are terms we have all probably heard thrown around loosely but not really sure what they mean and why they are caused. How Common Is It? Did you know that 60-70% of people encounter low back pain at some point in their life? Why Is It So Common? Low back pain as you know is far too common and nearly everyone you meet has an achy or sore back. Due to society evolving around making our lives as comfortable as possible it also means we aren’t using our muscles and bones as much as we need to stay strong.

The Importance of Following a Treatment Schedule

Following a treatment plan for a structural injury can be viewed in the same way as a fitness programme. If you follow your prescribed treatment schedule closely, you are more likely to get positive and longer lasting results.If you decide to do a fitness programme, it is essential to go frequently and consistently until you reach your desired level of fitness; and then it is important to maintain that level of fitness with an altered programme. If you only follow your fitness programme now and again, you wouldn’t expect much to change.In the same way, if you are inconsistent with attending ...read more

Hi everyone! Hope you have all settled back into your routines after the school holidays and the madness that follows. Back to work for a holiday for all the parents out there!

Structural Bodywork

By Mel   •   February 13th, 2017

Structural Bodywork

Structural bodywork is a holistic remedial therapy that aims to put 'ease' and 'space' back into your body. The work is based around the different myofascial lines that surround the body, supporting it's upright position, whilst allowing movement and function.However, like most things, as we age; do repetitive work or exercise; don't hydrate well; injuries; bad postural habits; stress; emotional ups and downs; and illness, cause these myofascial lines or places to be restrictive, overstretched or shortened and therefore do not facilitate movement as well as they should any more. Thge tissues ...read more

Why You Should Never Sit on Your Wallet

By Mel   •   October 20th, 2016

Why You Should Never Sit on Your Wallet

As a Chiropractor I commonly see many bad habits that create spinal dysfunction and lead to a variety of health problems. It is common to see a patient walk into our clinic with a huge wallet in their back pocket that is left their while they sit. When you sit on your wallet you create an uneven surface that our body must compensate for by creating a functional scoliosis, which in turn puts stress on spinal joints, nerve roots, muscles and ligaments and may lead to back pain, fatigue, trigger points and more. Back pain and sciatica are very common complaints seen in our office and back pain ...read more
