Headaches and Chiropractic

June 22nd, 2020

If you are a sufferer of headaches you are not alone; it is estimated that almost half of the adult population of Australians have suffered from a headache at least once in the last year (with females being a higher concentration of that percentage)1.

Some headaches are intense, some are dull, some people get them frequently, some only occur during times of stress and some can be debilitating with symptoms of pain and nausea.  When we get these headaches we are often influenced by the ...read more

What Can I Do to Look After My Immune System?

April 29th, 2020

We have never been faced with times like this. With so many restrictions on even the most simple of things and more future uncertainty than ever before, for a lot of people I am seeing and speaking to there is an undertone of pressure or stress. Whether it be adapting to new family dynamics, changing work or schooling arrangements or the restrictions on normal activities. Uncertainty breeds stress, isolation and a lack of connection also breeds stress. So in a time that we should be supporting our resistance to viral infections we are all stressed!! One of the worst things we can do for our ...read more
