What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is the third largest healthcare profession in the world, after medicine and dentistry. Thousands of people each day, all over the world, see chiropractors for help with a very wide variety of issues.
Most people who see a Chiropractor do so initially to help relieve pain or to improve their mobility. Once they start to see the enormous benefits that Chiropractic can give them, they choose to continue with care beyond just pain relief.

Chiropractic is the third largest healthcare profession in the world, after medicine and dentistry. Thousands of people each day, all over the world, see chiropractors for help with a very wide variety of issues.  Doctors of Chiropractic undergo extensive education and training, and must reach very high standards in order to be able to practise. Even once qualified, Chiropractors must undergo regular continued study and professional development.

A Doctor of Chiropractic’s education covers the subjects of anatomy, physiology, neurology, pharmacology, neuroanatomy, biomechanics, diagnosis, biochemistry and nutrition, in great detail.


Chiropractic offers people a natural, holistic, functional and evidence-based approach to their healthcare.  People seek the help of a chiropractor for a wide variety of reasons.  Including help with back and neck pain, sciatica and trapped nerves, sports injuries, certain types of headaches plus many more.  Lots of people also choose to see a chiropractic as a part of their general health and wellbeing care; they just know it makes them feel better!

Dr Steve sees patients of all shapes, sizes, ages and from all walks of life.  He has specific training in paediatrics (including the care of babies), pre and post-natal care, sports injuries and biomechanics.

Chiropractic in Pregnancy

Care for pre and post-natal women is very specific and specialised; during pregnancy and after birth, the joints, ligaments, muscles and nerves work very differently. I have completed extensive post-graduate training in order to help women with pregnancy and birth-related complaints and challenges.  I am a full member of the International Chiropractic Paediatric Association, which recognises the high level of training and expertise required to treat paediatric patients, as well as pre- and post-natal women.

Many women come to see me without actually having pain or a particular problem; they just want to make sure that their bodies are working as well as possible during pregnancy, and in preparation for the birth of their baby. There is extensive research which has

proved that Chiropractic care during pregnancy helps to reduce labour time, reduce the need for intervention, and reduces stress and trauma to both mother and child.

Other women have problems ranging from pelvic and low back pain, to pubic symphysis pain/dysfunction (PSD), and sciatica. I am able to perform the Webster Technique for breech babies.

My treatment for pregnant women is extremely gentle, yet highly effective. The comfort and safety of both mother and baby is my utmost concern during the treatment. I treated my own wife during both her pregnancies, every week!

Chiropractic For Kids

Many babies are brought to me for help with conditions such as colic, sucking and feeding problems, excessive crying and failure to settle.  Frequently, babies that are labeled as difficult or unsettled, have a spinal or cranial bone (skull bone) misalignment which, with Chiropractic care, improves the situation dramatically.

 The treatment of babies using specialised chiropractic techniques is extremely gentle and perfectly safe. The effects are often astounding! I treated both of my children within the first few hours of them being born.

 Older children are brought to me with problems ranging from recurrent ear infections (otitis media), postural misalignments, dyspraxia, and coordination issues.
