At our chiropractic centres we provide health care solutions for a variety of spinal and other muscle and joint problems. Our treatment centres on the chiropractic adjustment which is given specifically to relieve the pressure on the nerves that is causing such conditions as low back pain and sciatica (pain below the waist, which may be in the buttock, thigh or even extend into the toes. This pressure may result in pain, tingling, burning, spasms, itching or numbness-fortunately not all of these symptoms at once.). Other conditions commonly seen are headaches and neck and shoulder pains, which may extend down the arms into the fingertips causing muscle tension, pain, burning, tingling, weakness or muscular spasms.

Darwin ChiropracticAt Palmerston and Casuarina Chiropractic Centres our goal is to analyse and correct the causes of these problems by realigning the spine using our specialized chiropractic methods and also corrective exercises where appropriate. Our team is dedicated to restoring and maintaining your health.

I could go on and on with examples of […]…

Feel the Heat!

Build-up time in Darwin again and all the tourists have decamped for cooler climes, leaving us locals to cope. Many people move to the tropics hoping that the warmer weather will ease their aches and pains, and to some extent this works, just as physical exercise-work or play-will ease a number of conditions. This is […]…

Modern Technology-A pain in the neck!

Modern technology is a wonderful thing but it also can be a ‘pain in the neck’. That is because the human spine has not evolved to cope with the long periods of time we spend hunched over our phones/tablets/laptops and even over our desktop computers, if the monitor is not correctly placed. This leaning forward-often […]…
