As part of Spinal Health Week 2017, we are raising awareness of chronic back pain and encouraging Australians to seek help.
Spinal Health Week this year is focused on encouraging people to seek help for chronic back problems.
Chronic back pain is a national issue. One in six Australians suffer from the physical and psychological effects of chronic back problems – that’s an estimated 3.7 million people suffering.
The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare defines chronic back pain as a health condition that lasts for three months or longer. Chronic back pain is a national issue.

The Activator Method is one of the most widely-researched chiropractic techniques and the only instrument adjusting technique with 23 clinical trials to support its efficacy.
Activator Methods has published hundreds of clinical and scientific peer-reviewed papers, worked with major academic research institutions, and received grants from recognised entities like the USA's National Institutes of Health.
We use the activator adjusting tool in chiropractic treatments at our clinic in StKilda.

Chiropractic Care for musculoskeletal conditions
Chiropractic treatments at ChiroCure Clinic are aimed to provide relief to patients experiencing pain and discomfort in the body and spine. Pain may be caused by an underlying spinal condition, including degenerative disc disc, facet joint degeneration, end plate degeneration and osteophyte formation. Degeneration in the spine occurs naturally throughout the ageing process.
Our chiropractors may refer patients for a cervical, thoracic or lumbar spine x-ray or spinal series radiographs, for diagnostic assessment to determine the extent of spinal degeneration and other spinal related conditions.
Your ChiroCure chiropractic practitioner will discuss your diagnosis and clinical recommendations based on their findings from your assessment, x-ray imaging, and treatment response, to determine the best course of treatment for your spinal health.
For additional information please ask one of our chiropractors next time you visit ChiroCure Clinic in StKilda East.

Have you used all of your cover for this year?
Most people don’t realise that they could be leaving hundreds of dollars’ worth of
Private Health Insurance extras behind.
Most private health "extras" policies operate on a calendar year basis.
This means that your annual limits reset on January 1st every year.
Unfortunately annual limits don’t rollover, so if you don’t use them – you lose them.
At ChiroCure Clinic, each of our chiropractors and remedial therapists
are claimable with every private health fund for each!!

Discover what paediatric chiropractic care at ChiroCure Clinic can offer your children...
ICPA (International Chiropractic Paediatric Association), has recently published a study in the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic care for children.
Out of 5,438 office visits only 3 minor aggravations were reported, such as minor discomfort, following the adjustment.
In the study over 90% of the chiropractors and parents reported improvement in the child’s presenting complaint. Both also reported improvement in the child’s behaviour, sleeping pattern and immune function.
Do you want your child developing the same spinal problems that you have as an adult?
If there is a history of spinal problems in your family, your child’s spine may not develop properly.
Early detection is essential in preventing certain spinal problems developing.
Previously, spinal degeneration was viewed as a result of ageing and ‘wear and tear’.
However, research has recently revealed that there is also a substantial influence of heredity on spinal degeneration.
