Chiro for Kids
Biomesotherapy or more commonly known as saline needling, consists of tiny injections using sterile saline solution administered just under the surface of the skin at the area of injury/pain. This therapy has been widely used for sport and injury throughout Europe for many decades.
It may help to reduce your pain and inflammation by interrupting the pain and inflammatory pathways. It may also speed up your healing process by stimulating the immune system and nervous system around the injury site.
We have found it is particularly good for rapidly reducing muscle spasm, especially with head-aches, migraines, lower back pain and joint injuries. Yes, we use it on animals too!
All our practitioners are passionate about helping children. Are you concerned about your child’s posture? Are they slouching? Spending too long bent over their IPad or IPhone? We use a Posture App in our clinic which will show you exactly what is happening with your child’s posture. We will also explain to you the causes of their poor posture and suggest some ways to help fix it. Give yourself some peace of mind and let us address these issues for you.
Does your child do athletics? We use a combination of therapies to assist in helping your child reach their full athletic potential and promote injury prevention strategies.
Other conditions that chiropractic care may help children or babies with are: Colic, reflux, bedwetting, plagiocephaly (misshapen head), difficulty feeding on one side just to name a few.
The best thing to do now is call the clinic, book an appointment and talk to a professional about you or your child’s individual needs.

Deep Tissue/Sports Massage
Are you concerned about poor core strength?
Do you have an abdominal diastasis (separation of your stomach muscles)? Do you have chronic lower back pain or an increased curve in your lower back? Do you suffer from ITB syndrome, Shin Splints, chronic neck pain and headaches? All of these things may be linked to poor core strength.
Your core muscles do not just consist of your “six-pack” muscles. The term core strength in fact, refers to your deep, underlying abdominal and back muscles, your gluteal muscles, the long muscles of your spine and your deep neck flexors.
All our chiropractors have studied rehabilitation at University as part of their chiropractic Masters. In addition to that, both Drs. Matt and Sharith have studied Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilisation, which is the latest in rehabilitation techniques from Prague, as well as both being qualified Pilates Instructors.
Do you want to stand better, look better, feel better, perform better, have less pain? Let us help you become your optimal you. Ask us for a core strength assessment and some corrective exercises today.
Deep tissues massage are great treatments that use slow, deeper pressure movements to release muscle and fascial tightness and restore proper function to the body. Deeper pressure movements often involve the use of elbows, knuckles and thumbs to penetrate the deeper layer muscles and fascia.
This type of therapy is hugely beneficial for clients who find themselves performing repetitive movements, sitting for long periods or people who play sports. Often during repetitive movements or for long periods of time when we are sitting, our bodies will tighten and constrict. Therefore, deep pressure treatments can help to relieve this tightness and restore postural balance to the body.
When having your deep tissue massage the therapist will ensure that the treatment is tailored to the needs and pain threshold of the client. It may take a few treatments and deep tissue massages to see the full benefits but as time progresses your body will have less pain, move more freely and operate more efficiently.
Healthy eating is a passion of our practitioners. Are you aware that your diet directly impacts on the way you feel as well as your chronic pain?
More and more research is being conducted to establish the link between diet, inflammation and chronic diseases. Commonly known allergies and intolerances such as wheat, gluten and dairy can be linked with chronic health issues.
Ask us for some suggestions on how to improve your lifestyle choices….and if we can’t directly help you we will refer you to a practitioner who can.
Health & Fitness
Headaches can be a horrible, debilitating problem that leave you in severe pain and, let’s face it, quite grumpy. They can leave you mildly incapacitated or they can leave you bedridden and groggy.
Headaches may be due to diet, sinus issues, hormones, exertion, strong odours, medications, poor posture or accidents to name just a few. They may also be due to irritation of the nerves in the upper neck due to poor movement of the neck joints.
Our chiropractors are trained to perform a detailed history and examination to help determine the cause of your headaches and thereby, choose the best treatment method for your specific needs.
At Coast to Country Chiropractic, we focus on getting you out of pain and back to a healthy coherent life.
Where applicable, we turn back the proverbial aging clock and encourage a level of health, fitness, regeneration and vitality greater than the level that it was prior to treatment. We do this by providing you with a thorough assessment, prescribing a tailored individual treatment protocol and educating you about the nature of your pain and its initial cause.

Oh yes, the good old pain in the neck! Never is there a truer statement, because nobody likes a pain in the neck! Other manifestation can be neck stiffness, pinching, aching, throbbing. All the above can greatly impact how you drive and look for traffic, affect your work and productivity, impact time and play with your kids or grandchildren, and also be a liability on any sporting team.
So, you have to ask the questions: What is your posture like? What do you do for a living? How are your stress levels? Are you breathing correctly? All the above factors may influence whether or not you suffer from neck pain, stiffness or irritability. It is easy to give a band aid fix or silver bullet for the neck pain.

All chiropractors are trained in the additional needs of pregnant women.
At our clinic, we have chiropractic tables which are specifically designed to remove pressure on your abdomen whilst being adjusted.
A lot of women seek care through pregnancy to help minimise pelvic pain, sciatica, reflux and back pain in general.
Getting regular adjustments through pregnancy, may help prepare your pelvis and ligaments for optimal positioning of your baby. When the pelvis is misaligned, it interferes with the amount of room the baby has in utero. This is known as intrauterine constraint.
The International Chiropractic Paediatric Association (ICPA) currently recommends that women receive chiropractic care throughout pregnancy for these reasons.
Some people would argue that relaxation massage is also another form of remedial treatment. For people who suffer from stress, depression, anxiety, sleep deprivation and other issues, relaxation massage can be an exceptional benefit.
In modern society, we are constantly busy and on the move, whether it be at work, looking after children, studying or being immersed in social media. For the most part of the day our brains are constantly engaged and kept active, therefore relaxation massage can be of benefit.
This style of massage relaxes the nervous system, promotes lymphatic stimulation which removes waste products and relieves feelings of nervous tension and anxiety.
Relax the mind and body with a great relaxation massage from one of our skilled massage therapists.
Professional remedial massages at Coast to Country Chiropractic
Remedial Massage is ideal for treating specific problems such as frozen shoulder, tendonitis, reduced flexibility, and injuries.
Sessions are performed by one of our handpicked skilled therapists with a Remedial Massage Certificate and the knowledge to assess your needs correctly. Your therapist will take time on your first visit to do an assessment, check your range of motion and ask about your general activity.
Treatment involves postural assessment to isolate muscles that are not functioning correctly and to identify and correct muscular and postural imbalances. Techniques used include Myofascial Release (MFR), Trigger Point, Acupressure, Cross Fibre Mobilisation and Positional Releases and Stretches.
As Remedial Massage often deals with more complex problems, best results can be expected when you commit to at least 3 to 5 regular sessions.
Sciatica occurs due to pressure and/or irritation on one of the nerves in your lower back. It will send debilitating pain all the way down your leg, and it is a type of pain that painkillers just don’t seem to touch.
The causes of sciatica may be due to a disc bulge, inflammatory arthritis of the facet joints, piriformis syndrome or a multitude of other biomechanical issues that our chiropractors are trained to detect and help repair.
Results vary depending on the cause, duration and various complications of this issue, which is why we have so many different treatment methods in our clinic to increase your chances of getting better, faster. We have learnt from experience that a ‘one size fits all’ approach to sciatica rarely works.
Book now and one of our qualified practitioners will identify and work through your options with you.
