Chiropractic is a drug and surgery free modality of treatment concerned with the diagnosis, management and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system. Hence, our aim is to get you back to health.
Chiropractic has been proven to alleviate pain from a range of conditions, the most common being neck pain, sciatica, lower back pain, sports injuries, stiffness, jaw pain, muscle tension, pinched nerves and headaches. As it is a drug and surgery free treatment, chiropractic care focuses on your body’s structure and function to optimise function of the nervous, muscular and joint systems and activate the natural healing system of your body.
Chiropractic care & women’s health:
We are extremely passionate about Chiropractic care for special needs of pregnant women, new mothers and Womens health. As women progress through pregnancy the weight of the baby along with hormonal changes soften the supporting soft tissues around the pelvis and spine. Therefore, making it easier to have sprain or strain injuries.
As a result, regular chiropractic check ups and chiropractic alignments can assist in preventing pregnancy pain, discomfort, and signs and symptoms related to nervous system interferences – Pregnancy being a passion area of Doctor Shae’s.

Specific areas get weakened after injury or need strengthening post-surgery. By working with your physical therapist, you can target these areas and relieve stress without causing pain.

The essential role of the sports physiotherapist is to provide treatment and rehabilitation of sports injuries and also to provide support for performance through injury prevention, maintenance and recovery interventions. Furthermore, they promote an active lifestyle to aid individuals in improving and maintaining their quality of life. Sports and Exercise Physiotherapists also play a huge role in helping athletes of all ages and all levels of ability to enhance their performance levels.

"A recognized professional who demonstrates advanced competencies in the promotion of safe physical activity participation, provision of advice, and adaptation of rehabilitation and training interventions, for the purposes of preventing injury, restoring optimal function, and contributing to the enhancement of sports performance, in athletes of all ages and abilities, while ensuring a high standard of professional and ethical practice."
Sports and exercise physiotherapists contribute to the enhancement of the athlete's performance from their native years at school level, through evaluation of the athlete's physical and performance-related profile by analysing their musculoskeletal system and advise or intervene to optimise continuous performance in a specific sport throughout the career span of an athlete.
Athletes have a clear, but sometimes limited, understanding of the role of the sports physiotherapist. They see the role of the sports physiotherapist as mainly injury-focused. In interviews with athletes on the role of the sports physiotherapist, the following four themes emerged:
• Injury treatment
• Injury prevention
• Performance enhancement
Athletes acknowledged the role of the sports physiotherapist in preventing and managing injuries, but also placed emphasis on sports physiotherapists helping them to train for increased duration and intensity without becoming injured.
