Some quick facts about Chiropractic Care

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a natural health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health.  Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuro-musculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.


A whole body approach makes a difference.

Chiropractic care is very successful with its strong biomechanical approach to injury, but why is Chiropractic successful when other offerings have failed? The answer is interestingly simple, yet complex. The success of Chiropractic care is based on the simple principle that Chiropractors don’t focus primarily on the resolution of pain, but most importantly the “cause” of failure leading to the expression of symptoms. The “whole body” approach appreciates the philosophy of chiropractic care being intimitely connected via the nervous system. From the brain, via the spinal cord and nerves there is an 'intelligence' or 'energy' communicating, directing and influencing an array of tissues and organ in your body. Chiropractors see a healthy nervous system as the back bone to our ability to function optimally and constantly adapt to the daily challenges of our environment.


Bone out of place? It's really not that simple!

Historically, Chiropractors have traditionally referred to the term “subluxation” to describe the 'misalignment' that may affect nerve function, hence the self-healing and self-regulating process eventually resulting in dysfunction, and potentially disease. Whilst it is true that 'bones don't go out of place per se', it is becoming evident the spine and the surrounding structures are highly innervated with nerve receptors and delicate muscles that co-ordinate the fine movements keeping us upright, and forming a spatial representation of your body within your nervous system.


Chiropractic has widespread health benefits beyond pain.

When these precision spinal movements are effected through bad posture, injury or disease the effects can be widespread. It is surprising to many that after an “adjustment” to a spinal segment, the neural interference is removed and many clients doon't only report less pain, but often more energy, better sleep, improved concentration, better digestion and overall sense of wellbeing. As more research continues to investigate such widespread and outstanding results, the current research now explains why chiropractic has been so effective with results often beyond what the scientific establishment can explain.  More research is required to grasp the reason for the successes beyond explanation.


Top to Toe. We've got you covered.

Dry Needling &


Precision Care
Acupuncture & Dry Needling Complement Chiropractic

Dr. Alfie Arcidiacono and his associates may use dry needling and/or acupuncture which is a very effective adjunctive therapy to complement the primary chiropractic care approach if suitable.


Comfortable, Effective & Safe Acupuncture Technique

If you have not tried these techniques, you may be suprised how beneficial and effective they can be for pain relief especially with acute pain, with minimal discomfort, if any. Each needle is very, very fine single use disposable acupuncture needle.


Acupuncture Helps Trigger Point, Muscle Spasm & Tension

Acupuncture is often used for treating myofascial symptoms or what is commonly referred to as ‘trigger points’. Trigger points can often be latent (silent or sleeping giants) and may not be apparent unless ‘triggered’ at which time this becomes active. An active trigger point can be the source of much discomfort, tension, tightness and pain that may be local or more often referred to distal sites.


What's the difference between acupuncture v dry needling? 

Acupuncture, like dry needling is similar in technique but focuses on specific meridians and is sometimes complimented by Chinese herbal medicine.

Why does your Chiropractor often use myofascial therapy?

Soft tissue therapies such as massage, myofacial therapy, trigger point therapy, Bowen’s techniques, active release therapy and many other variations have long been used as an adjunctive chiropractic therapy for recovery, injury prevention, pain relief and relaxation.


What are the benefits of massage & myofascial therapy?

There are many benefits including enhancing blood flow, improving lymphatic drainage, assisting delayed onset muscle soreness, reducing muscle spasm, reducing aches and pains, assisting flexibility and associated joint mobility and breaking up fibrous adhesions. 


What's the difference between massage versus myofascial?

Our qualified chiropractors will utilise a variety of personalised myofascial techniques in conjunction with their care which is very specific to address the root dysfunction, and therapeutic in supporting the primary care beyond pain relief or relaxation. If you are seeking a massage for relaxation, we work with various massage therapists as required from time to time. What we do know, is that you will leave our clinic well informed and confident that your health is in good hands.

Exercise Prescription

Get Stronger, Get Fitter, Feel Better.
Those who fail to plan, plan to fail .

There is an old saying that 'those who fail to plan, plan to fail', and this certainly applies to the management of many neuro-musculoskeletal conditions we manage. There is no magic bullet to exceeding the body's natural physiological processes of healing.


Prescriptive Exercise Plan Equals Success

True success results from a carefully designed care plan to take a client from passive care from suffering with pain or other symptoms, then helping to empower them with an active exercise and rehab program for real success.


Beginners to Olympic Level Exercises

A prescriptive exercise program is individually tailored to ensure the fastest results with least effort, building foundations to progressively move clients from beginner, to intermediate, to advanced and Olympic level program if desired.


Move & Exercise with Confidence Again

Our exercise prescription and physiology approach is designed for an array of clients. Whether you’re a weekend warrior or an Olympian; an office worker or bricklayer; a workers compensation or third-party client; a pre or post-surgical rehabilitation client or the aged looking for a balance or strengthening program can help get your moving again.

Your feet are the finely tuned interface between ‘terra-firma’ and the rest of your body. We take the simple task of each step for granted, and the direct impact abnormal foot biomechanics may effect the rest of your body.


This domino effect is translated up the chain to your ankle, knees, hips joints, pelvis, spine and even up to your head, often not causing pain and discomfort until many years have passed which may have been prevented much earlier. Common foot problems we see include plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, metatarsalgia, pronation, ankle sprains, shin splints and achilles tendinopathy to name a few.


The good news is that most don't need orthotics. For those needing prescriptive orthotics you must have the right type depending upon your foot complaint. Like any other check-up, don’t ignore your feet and the direct impact this may have upon your health, mobility, function and discomfort on the many joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments especially in the active and elderly.
