The chiropractors at our Brunswick practice are committed to provide evidence based treatment protocols that are scientifically proven to be effective. We’ve been established since 1990 and are experienced treating many conditions such as back pain, sciatica, headaches, migraines, neck pain….. just to name a few.
Our focus is not just where the pain or problem is manifesting but equally importantly why this health issue came about in the first place. Analysis as to where, how, why and what, needs greater investigation and understanding to get sustainable results.
The role of a Physiotherapist is essential to assess how your body moves and identify areas where it needs correction. Correct movement and alignment distribute the stresses caused by gravity to areas of the body designed to cope with such stresses.
Once we move away from our ideal biomechanical alignment, stresses to our joints and other soft tissues such as muscles, tendons, ligaments etc.. start to take its toll. The body will undergo a number of adaptations to protect itself and cope as best it can but eventually it manifests as pain coupled with reduced movement. This usually takes many years (if we exclude sudden impact type injuries) which is why most people will not be able to explain the direct cause of their pain.
Physiotherapists look at the site of pain and use a number of techniques to reduce the level of pain. In addition, they take a step back and assess the cause of the pain which is often related to alignment adaptations that are no longer serving you well.
Techniques commonly used by Physiotherapists include mobilisation, trigger point therapy, soft tissue massage, dry needling, ultrasound incorporated with progressive personalised exercise rehabilitation programs. Advise and education is critical to understand how to prevent the condition returning as well as head towards corrective care by being an active participant in your recovery.
How long you choose to benefit from Physiotherapy care is up to you. You may want simply the pain to end or you may decide to restore normal movement and alignment, as well as core strength, is important for the long game.
At Brunswick Health we only offer “Closed Colonics (a qualified colonic hydrotherapist is in the room with you at all times)” rather than an “Open Colonics” system as patient safety and effectiveness is paramount to the care we offer. We are the largest health clinic in Melbourne established since 1990.
It is our opinion that a Closed Colonic System is safer and offers “best practices” compared to an Open Colonic System. It has also been our experience once people have experienced a “Closed” system they do not return to an “Open” system.

Massage promotes healing by increasing circulation of blood and lymph which reduces painful swelling and inflammation and brings vital nutrients to damaged tissues. In addition, massage therapy removes waste products (such as lactic/carbonic acid) and stimulates healthy separation and realignment of chronically contracted muscle fibres.
Massage triggers the body’s relaxation response, interrupting a cycle of stress and muscle tension that can accumulate in response to life’s challenges. Read more about massage here
Myotherapy is a hands on therapy in which the soft tissue structures of the body are manipulated in order to improve and promote optimal health and well being. It is a physical form of treatment that focuses on relieving and getting rid of pain, tension, soreness and tightness within the muscles. Technically speaking, myotherapy is the assessment, treatment and management of musculoskeletal conditions, which may cause myofascia dysfunction and pain thus affecting movement and mobility.
