Your local Gonstead Chiropractic Clinic
“At Exactly Chiropractic we are committed to helping you reach optimal health and vitality
by identifying and treating the unique underlying causes of disease.
We practice exclusively the Gonstead model of chiropractic care – a technique that analyses and cares for your spine in a gentle, effective
and specific way.
Our goal is to provide a safe space with
patient-centred (not symptom-centred)
Lower back pain
Lower back pain can often stem from the pelvis or pressure on a nerve in the lumbar spine. Patients frequently present after years of a niggle in their lower back that has been exacerbated by twisting, lifting or bending over. The pain can sometimes radiate down the legs and can make it very difficult to walk, sit and function in day-to-day activities.
Temporary relief can be achieved by walking or resting, depending on the condition, and icing the area. A chiropractic adjustment can help the body to heal faster and put it in a better position to prevent further injury to the area.
Neck pain and stiffness can be caused by spinal dysfunction and postural changes. Neck pain can also refer down the arms and into the shoulders. Neck pain is often brought on by trauma (whiplash), poor posture (while standing or using electronic devices) or poor pillows (while sleeping).
Mid-back issues can also often refer into the neck and cause muscle stiffness as the body tries to protect the area of dysfunction. Mid-back or thoracic problems often refer into the shoulder, ribs and chest. Mid back pain is often brought on by lifting, digging, cycling and water sports like surfing and wakeboarding due to the extra weight and load put through the thoracic spine.
Temporary relief from neck and mid-back pain or stiffness can be achieved through stretching, resting and pain killers. For long-term improvements and prevention of further episodes, a specific and quality chiropractic adjustment is needed.
Headaches and migraines
Headaches and migraines come under a multitude of titles including suboccipital and cervicogenic/tension-type. Symptoms can range from pain or the feeling of a tight band around the head to vomiting and pain into the jaw or face. Current evidence-based Australian guidelines recommend a course of chiropractic treatment of migraines and cervicogenic/tension-type headaches.
Anti-inflammatory drugs may mask the symptoms of the headache; they do not treat the underlying cause. A chiropractic adjustment can assist in treating the cause of the headache and help reduce the frequency and severity of headaches in the future.
