We Care

 

Working together to help you achieve better health and well being.

Our community of healthcare practitioners work together in finding a solution for you and your circumstances. With a balanced approach, we consider the root cause of your pain and strive towards delivering the best care, for each patient, on every occasion.

We tend to people of all ages from children to elderly and take pride in our commitment to care for a wide variety of conditions. Our techniques address both symptoms and cause to provide natural pain relief and improvements in health and well-being.

We Listen

 

Tailoring treatment and techniques for individual needs and lifestyle.

Our multidisciplinary clinic, with a diverse team of therapists, offers a broad base of natural treatments. Our experienced professionals have the ability to recognise the most appropriate therapy for your health conditions.

We nurture health and wellness with a complementary range of physical, cognitive and remedial therapies. Our clinical knowledge combined with our observation for normal function acknowledges that effective treatment is as individual as you are.

We Transform

 

Effectively eliminating pain by treating the cause, not just the symptom.

We consider concepts that positively shape quality healthcare and clinical practices with ongoing professional and personal development. Our stance recognises the need to go beyond detecting symptoms by treating and preventing the cause of health problems.

We restore health through symptom relief and maximise well-being by identifying preventative solutions. We educate and empower patients towards rehabilitation to transform you towards long-term recovery and ultimate independence

Scoliosis Screening Community Service Program

What is Scoliosis?

Scoliosis is a side-to-side curvature of the spine. It can develop during childhood, teenage years, or adulthood, but is most common noticed during the years of rapid growth in girls nine to fourteen years of age and boys eleven to sixteen years of age. This is most common type of scoliosis, known as Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis. “Idiopathic” means “of unknown cause” however there can be genetic factors as scoliosis tends to run in families, therefore anyone who has scoliosis should send their children for screening and any adolescent who is found to have scoliosis should send their siblings for screening. Diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring are important as spinal deformity can cause pain and dysfunction in the musculoskeletal system as well as dysfunction of the heart and lungs.

Yes it’s another post on gut health!

More and more research has been conducted on the importance of the human microbiome, essentially the study of the complex relationship between the bacteria in our gut and our health. The bacteria in our gut can affect the amount and type of vitamins being produced. They have the potential to influence conditions from autoimmune diseases, immune function, anxiety, mood disorders, obesity to allergies.

Watch the great video at the bottom of this post to get a quick reminder on the important relationship between our gut and health.

Ruminations on Health and being Healthy

The human body is a complex organism yet its needs are simple.

It is an efficient well designed engine of life which requires very little tinkering on our part majority of the time.

It has the ability to self regulate, maintain and repair itself. As long as we provide it with a variety of nourishment, a reasonable amount of rest and amusement. Our modern lifestyle takes our body into extremes: long stressful work hours, nutrition-less or over rich foods, too little or too much exercise, sleep deprivation and emotional turmoil. 

All these factors have a deleterious effect on the overall body function and its ability to self regulate. After all, this is the key question:

“Does our body have the ability to adapt to ‘stresses’ in our environment?”

Stresses refer to any external or internal stimuli which your body may be exposed to, from temperature changes, noise, perceived threats, work deadlines, traumatic experiences, emotions to an overcommitted schedule.
