Are you tired of slouching and feeling pain in your neck and back? With over 34 years of experience, our team of chiropractors can help you stand tall again, relieve your pain and regain your confidence.
Poor posture is more common that you might think. In a recent study, 65% of nearly 600,000 screened children and adolescents had incorrect posture.
On top of spine related issues such as back pain, scoliosis or rounded shoulders, the symptoms of bad posture extend to conditions like poor balance, fatigue, headaches, incontinence, constipation, heartburn and breathing difficulties. Studies also suggest that posture influences mental health. So it’s a big deal.
The main causes of poor posture are bad habits such as slouching or underutilizing some muscles. Therefore, people sitting for long periods of time or carrying heavy objects are more likely to experience postural problems.
The good news is that poor posture can be altered by ensuring that we interact with our environment ergonomically.
Through an extensive postural analysis, including gait and footwear, and with targeted adjustments, exercises and lifestyle recommendations, we will empower you to stand tall, move freely and improve your posture.
Our approach is holistic, focusing not just on symptom relief but on cultivating habits that promote long-term postural health.
Your treatment may include:
Our doctors will diagnose the cause(s) of your postural symptoms. During an initial consultation, they will take an in-depth medical history, perform a physical exam and may carry out an imaging diagnosis (such as X-rays or MRIs).

We will also give you personalised advice to help address your symptoms such as stretching and therapeutic exercises, ergonomic and lifestyle advice and nutritional guidance. We may also prescribe supplements or complementary medical tests.
