Low Back Pain

Strain - Pinched Nerve - Degeneration - Joint Dysfunction

Lower back pain can be caused by a variety of problems with any parts of the complex, interconnected network of spinal muscles, nerves, bones, discs or tendons in the lumbar spine. An irritation or problem with any of these structures can cause lower back pain and/or pain that radiates or is referred to other parts of the body.

Neck Pain

Joint Dysfunction - Arthritis - Sprain - Pinched Nerve

Neck pain, although felt in the neck, can be caused by numerous other spinal problems. Neck pain may arise due to muscular tightness in both the neck and upper back, or pinching of the nerves emanating from the cervical vertebrae. Joint disruption in the neck creates pain, as does joint disruption in the upper back.

Mid-Back Pain

Rib Dysfunction - Sprain - Joint Dysfunction - Strain

Thoracic or mid-back pain is common and often caused by poor posture. When the head shifts forward with slumped shoulders, this causes unnecessary strain on the joints and muscles leading to discomfort. Other causes of pain may include compression fractures, osteoporosis, rib injury, or Scheuermann's disease. 

Headache & Migraine

Migraine - Neck Related Headache

Headaches are common in conjunction with neck problems. They are usually a dull aching type of headache, rather than sharp pain. While the headaches are often felt at the back of the head, the pain may also radiate to the sides, and even the front of the head. Migraine may involve visual change. 

Whiplash Condition

Motor Vehicle Collision Injury - Sporting Injury

This commonly follows a car accident in which the person’s car is hit from behind while it is stationary or slowing down. The person’s head is first thrown backwards and then when their body stops moving, the head is thrust forward. This type of injury can strain your neck muscles, ligaments, and joints which may cause significant pain.

Sporting Injuries

Golf - Hockey - Football - Skiing - Soccer - Dance

Sports injuries are injuries that occur in athletic activities. They can result from acute trauma, or from overuse of a particular body part. Fortunately, most sports injuries can be treated effectively, and most people who suffer injuries can return to a satisfying level of physical activity after an injury. 

Bulging Disc Pain

Pinched Nerve - Inflammation - Sciatica - Numbness

If the tough outside layer of one of the intervertebral discs tears, the soft gelatinous centre may bulge outwards, which is known as a herniated disc. Herniated discs can put pressure on nerve roots as they leave the spinal cord, causing pain in the spine as well as pain, numbness and weakness in the arms or legs.

Hip & Knee Pain

Arthritis - Acute Injury - Runner's Knee - ITB Friction

Hip pain is a common complaint that can be caused by a wide variety of problems. The precise location of your hip pain can provide valuable clues about the underlying cause. Problems within the hip joint itself tend to result in pain on the inside of your hip or your groin. Hip pain on the outside of your hip, upper thigh or outer buttock is usually caused by problems with muscles, ligaments, tendons and other soft tissues that surround your hip joint. Knee pain may present for a variety of reasons, most commonly with sporting injuries. 


Trochanteric Hip Bursitis - Subacromial Shoulder Bursitis

Bursitis is inflammation of a bursa. Bursae are small fluid-filled sacs located between two adjoining structures, usually muscles, tendons and bones. They reduce friction and assist movement of the tendon over the bony surface. Bursitis does not cause joint deformity, but can cause significant pain and restrict movement

Ankle & Foot Pain

Pinched Nerve - Sprain - Heel Spur - Achilles Tendonitis

Ankle pain is often due to an ankle sprain but can also be caused by ankle instability, arthritis, gout, tendonitis, fracture, nerve compression (tarsal tunnel syndrome), infection and poor structural alignment of the leg or foot. Ankle pain can be associated with swelling, stiffness, redness, and warmth in the involved area. Foot pain may include plantar fasciitis, Morton's neuroma, or heel spurs.

Shoulder Pain & Impingement

Frozen Shoulder - Arthritis - Tendon Tear - Labrum Injury

Shoulder pain is most commonly felt in the front of the shoulder or in the upper part of the arm. Pain is usually felt when moving the arm and you may notice it with only certain movements. Most shoulder problems do not cause pain when the arm is not moving. Pain that travels right down to your hand, with tingling in your fingers, may be from a problem with your neck, rather than your shoulder.

Elbow Pain

Tennis Elbow - Pinched Nerve - Arthritis - Golfer's Elbow

Most elbow pain results from overuse injuries. Many sports, hobbies and jobs require repetitive hand, wrist or arm movements. Elbow pain may occasionally be due to arthritis, however mostly results from excessive pulling on the tendons near the elbow joint. Tennis and Golfer's elbow are common causes. 

Wrist & Hand Pain

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - Tenosynovitis - Sprain

Wrist or hand pain may vary, depending on what's causing it. For example, osteoarthritis pain is often described as being similar to a dull toothache, while carpal tunnel syndrome usually causes a pins-and-needles feeling, especially at night. The precise location of your wrist or hand pain also can give clues to what might be causing your symptoms.

Arthritis & Joint Degeneration

Wear and Tear of Joints

Arthritis is inflammation of one or more of your joints. The main symptoms of arthritis are joint pain and stiffness, which typically worsen with age. The most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Excessive overuse of joints may predispose a person to developing arthritis. Genetics are also known to play a role. 


Pinched Nerve - Leg Pain - Numbness - Piriformis Muscle

The term sciatica describes the symptoms of leg pain and possibly tingling, numbness or weakness that originate in the lower back which then travels through the buttock and down the large sciatic nerve in the back of the leg. Lumbar disc injury is often the cause. 

Vertigo & Dizziness

Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) - Dizziness

Vertigo occurs when a person feels like they or the objects around them are moving when they are in fact not. Often it feels like a spinning or swaying movement. There may be associated nausea, vomiting, sweating, or walking difficulties. It is typically worsened with head movements. BPPV and neck dysfunction are common causes. 

Pinched Nerve Conditions

Arm/Hand Pain - Pins/Needles - Leg/Foot Pain - Numb

Pain from the spine can radiate down to the arms and legs. You may feel a sensation of pins and needles or tingling in your limbs, which can be accompanied by numbness, burning or weakness.This requires prompt assessment and diagnosis. 

Pregnancy-Related Back Ache

Hip/Buttock/Lumbar Pain - Headaches - Neck Pain

Back pain, headaches, and sciatica are very common during pregnancy, particularly in the third trimester. If you do have back pain while you're pregnant, try not to worry about it affecting your experience of birth. With the right treatment, it's rare for back pain to cause difficulties in labour. Chiropractic is very effective for managing pregnancy back pain. 

Muscular Tension

Strain in Muscular Tissue With or Without Injury

Muscle aches are also known as muscle pain, myalgia, or simply pain in the muscles. Muscle aches are extremely common. Almost everybody has likely experienced discomfort in his or her muscles at some point. Using the latest techniques in soft tissue therapy, we are able to provide significant pain relief. 

Postural Conditions

Pain Relief for Scoliosis or Rolled Shoulder Postures

The natural curves of your spine are designed to absorb shock and weight of your body as you are standing, sitting, walking, running, etc. However, these curves sometimes are exaggerated, resulting in conditions such as kyphosis (hump back), excessive lordosis (sway back) or scoliosis (spine is curved sideways). There is also a type of kyphosis that occurs in teenagers called Scheuermann's disease.
