From reading eBooks on your tablet to catching up on text messages after work, it is often easy to get carried away and forget about your posture. As mobile devices become increasingly prevalent in our day-to-day lives, so too does Text Neck. Text Neck is a term used to describe the neck pain and soreness commonly experienced after spending long periods of time in a hunched over position looking down at a mobile device. Causing everyday pain and discomfort, we'll tell you some simple measures to prevent this strain on your spine.

Chiropractic care has been a part of the Olympic games for over 40 years and today athletes of all kinds are reaping the benefits. Take Usain Bolt - an eight-time Olympic gold medalist who can run 100 metres faster than most of us can tie our shoelaces. But being the fastest man in the world can't come without the occasional setback (or two), right?
From injuries to simply enhancing his performance, Usain Bolt uses chiropractic care as an essential part of his strategy to remain in great shape. We may not be able to make you lightning bolt fast, but through the application of evidence based patient centered care, we can certainly help you achieve your fitness goals and/or get you back on the field as soon as possible.
Your initial consultation will begin with a diagnostic triage through orthopaedic, neurological and chiropractic testing with the short term goals of treatment focussing on reduction of symptoms (such as pain, decreased mobility and changes in sensation). From here we will work to prevent re-injury by identifying and addressing the causative factors through sport-specific and functional testing. This treatment may include; soft-tissue techniques, balance training, motor pattern correction, sport specific rehabilitation and patient education.
My training and experience both on and off the field have given me an insight into the physical requirements of the body and the common injuries associated with sporting pursuits. Communicating with your coach or personal trainer will help put us all on the same team - getting you back in the game as soon as safely possible.
