Chiropractic is a natural, safe and scientific healthcare discipline that focuses on the health and wellbeing of your spine and nervous system. At Northcote Chiropractic our primary focus is your nervous system which is made up of the brain and the spinal cord. Your nervous system is your body’s main control system, regulating all the organs, glands, muscles, blood vessels and tissues in the body.

Chiropractic is based on identifying and adjusting subluxations (spinal misalignments) that interfere with the nerve messages between your brain and your body. Restoring nerve impulses restores optimal health.

We believe health is about one thing – function. How well you function determines how well you truly are. Health and wellness are about more than just ‘feeling good,’ they are about functioning at your ultimate potential so you can heal and maintain optimal health.

“Chiropractic care is not aimed at ‘treating’ specific conditions as such, but rather restoring the body’s balance and natural ability to heal.”

What symptoms do you have?

The body has an inbuilt mechanism to compensate for altered patterns and this, over time, leads to what we feel as ‘signs and symptoms’ which is our body’s signal that it needs help.

Listed below are some of the reasons our clients maintain their Chiropractic Care:

  • General, acute & chronic backache, back pain (not arising from injury or accident)
  • Generalised aches and pains
  • Lumbago
  • Mechanical neck pain (as opposed to neck pain following injury i.e. whiplash)
  • Headaches (arising from the neck (cervicogenic)
  • Migraine prevention
  • Minor sports injuries
  • Muscle spasms
  • Plantar fasciitis and Ankle sprain (short term management)
  • Rotator cuff injuries, disease or disorders
  • Joint pains including hip and knee pain from osteoarthritis as an adjunct to core OA treatments and exercise
  • Tension or inability to relax
  • Problems getting out of bed
  • Problems getting out of a chair

The body’s alignment maybe altered through slips, falls, emotional stress, and lifestyle stresses.

“Emma has been treating me for a number of years now and she is incredibly thorough. Since my bike accident several years ago, it had an impact on the rest of my body, not just my injury. Regular alignments and looking at all other aspects of my health, she has helped me beyond words.

I really cannot recommend her, her lovely team or the practice highly enough.”
