Important COVID-19 Information

Our aim is to maintain a Corona Virus free environment

Now is a time to increase our vigilance and ensure we slow or stop the spread of this virus.

We have introduced extra measures to the clinic to protect our clients and ourselves.

If you have overt signs of fever or infection or have been in contact with anyone who has, we ask that you lets us know and reschedule your appointments for at least two weeks.

In the Clinic

  1. All clients must wash or disinfect their hands on arrival
  2. We are thoroughly washing or disinfecting our hands between each patient
  3. All equipment is wiped down with disinfectant after each patient
  4. All equipment is wiped down with disinfectant after each patient
  5. The whole centre is cleaned down (with disinfectant)  at the end of each shift
  6. With your help we can keep a Corona Virus free environment

In everyday life 

  • Social interaction plays a critical role in our overall level of wellbeing, so during this time of “social distancing” we need to take advantage of the wonderful technology we have available to us. make phone calls, Skype and FaceTime to family and friends daily.
  • Keeping positive and having “Hope” plays an important role in reducing stress, whilst we understand this is an extraordinary event we must remember we have an incredible medical system here in Australia and the measures that have been imposed have managed to keep Australia in good shape.
  • Humor, watch comedies to help lift the mood.
  • Movement and exercise, as this is another way to boost you immune system. We have seen many online exercise classes since the gyms have closed but we can do many activities on our own likes squats, star jumps or even stepping up on our toes.
  • Diet with fresh fruit and vegetables. It is easy to resort to “comfort foods” alcohol and snacks which can create chemical stress in the body and reduce our immune defence.
  • Managing pain, as this can reduce sleep and create inflammatory changes in the body. This along with pain medication will also reduce your body’s natural defences.

Please call us on (07) 5539-9798 if you have any concerns or further suggestions.

Adjusting Children

People are often curious as to why would a child need a Chiropractic adjustment, and this stems from a preconceived idea that Chiropractors just treat bad backs.

When you realise a Chiropractic adjustment helps to remove interference to the nervous system – which governs all function in the body, it makes perfect sense to want to check a child and make sure the brain body connection is functioning without interference.


Glut Stretch

The Glut stretch is great for relieving tension in the buttocks and hips. Simply lay in a comfortably spot, hold the flexed knee with both hands and pull the knee across the body and up towards the opposite shoulder.

STOP this exercise if you feel pain in the groin, ask you Chiropractor for an alternative way to do this exercise.


Hamstring Stretch

The Hamstring stretch releases tension from the back of the legs up to the pelvis. This muscle is released by standing facing towards a chair, step or ledge and placing one heel on the object. Keep the knee straight and the toes pointed towards your head, run the hand on the same side as the leg being stretched down the front of the leg towards the toes.

STOP if you feel pain in your low back – you should only feel a stretching in the back of the leg! Hold the stretch for 30 seconds and repeat 3 times on each side.

Hip Adductors – Groin Stretch

This is great for the hip Adductors (inner thigh and groin).

Stand with you feet wide apart and at 90 degrees to each other, then bend the front knee whilst keeping the back leg straight.


Neck and Thoracic Roll

To help prevent stooping posture and “Tech Neck” this is a great exercise you can do before going to sleep – just lay in the bed with the rolls under your upper back and neck for 20 minutes and relax.

Stop if you experience dizziness or pain – consult your Chiropractor for advice.


Cat Stretch

Great way to release tension across the low back, whilst also helping to activate the core muscles without compressing irritated nerves or discs.
