Welcome to Chiropractic at Balanced Life Health Care Ferntree Gully, where our Chiropractors provide tailored and personalized treatment adapted to suit each individual. With our safe, holistic and hands-on approach, we are confident in getting you feeling better the natural – chiropractic – way.
If we look at Medical treatment for pain, it usually entails prescribing pain-killers and anti-inflammatory drugs, which may certainly help with the sensation of your pain, but leaves the underlying cause that generated this pain to remain. In future these problems may give rise to recurring pain or even ongoing chronic symptoms. This is where Chiropractic care differs. Our Chiropractors are concerned with the ’cause’ of your pain and symptoms. By Identifying the underlying cause of you pain our Chiropractors provide a non-invasive, natural, hands on approach to correct the underlying problems and dysfunction, assuring your pain relief is due to a healthier and better functioning you!

If it happens more specialised, concurrent or alternative treatment is warranted we have an excellent referral network to utilize to help you.

Although it is usually the experience of ‘pain’ that makes us think something is wrong and seek out help, it doesn’t mean Chiropractic can’t benefit you if you are pain-free. Experiencing pain and being healthy are two separate things. You can be experiencing no pain and still have underlying issues that need correcting. Correcting these imbalances and keeping your body bio-mechanically correct will reduce the likelihood of not just future injury, but lead to other numerous other health improvements.
