Back and neck pain, ailments suffered all too commonly by human beings.

Headaches or Migraines
Joint Pain
Arm & Leg Pain
Hand and foot pain
Hip, knee, shoulder and elbow pain
The principal reason many patients initially present for treatment is pain. Back, neck, arm, hand or leg pain, headaches, pins and needles or numbness. Our first aim of treatment is pain reduction or symptomatic relief. This may be achieved by spinal adjustments, by gentle ligament or muscular stretching techniques or reflex therapy.

Beyond the initial phase of treatment to reduce pain and symptoms, we aim to uncover any structural, chemical or lifestyle issues that may be contributing to your back and neck pain. By addressing the ‘bigger picture’ issues often associated with the presence of pain and symptoms, we can oftentimes significantly reduce the number of treatments that would otherwise be required.

At Balance, we do not have any set treatment plans. The number and type of treatments required will vary based on the individual. Our treatment is dynamic, based on the needs and progress of the patient.
