Do you have a sports injury? Is your athletic performance below your expectations?

A sports chiropractor may be able to help.

Your journey with us will begin with a thorough discussion of your injury or issue, followed by a physical examination. This may include orthopaedic, neurological, postural and chiropractic examinations, as well as a movement assessment. 

We aim to reach an accurate diagnosis in order to determine an appropriate course of treatment for you.

Once we have determined how to help you, treatment begins. This may include joint manipulation or mobilisation (what chiropractors call an “adjustment”), soft tissue therapies, rehabilitation or other exercise therapies, taping and strapping, and basic nutritional advice. 

Our goal is to return you to activity safely and in the shortest time possible.
