What We Do

Spine Balance is a leading Chiropractic practice focusing on conservative solutions for spine related disorders with a particular focus on restoring normal function. We use a combination of gentle, safe and non-invasive therapies to help people achieve their spine goals.

How Can Spine Balance Claremont Help You?

At Spine Balance we aim to provide solutions to common spinal and spine related complaints.

The most common complaints we see include, but are not limited to:

  • Back Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Neck Pain
  • Headaches
  • Pins and Needles
  • Dizziness

What Causes These Symptoms?

People often say to us “I’ve put my back out!” However the answer to what happens to the spine is not so simple. Back pain can be caused by a number of different structures of the spine and it is our job to determine the problem in each particular case. This is done through a thorough history and physical examination.

How Do We Help?

The fact is the vast majority of spinal complaints do not require surgery or other invasive procedures. Most complaints will improve with a conservative approach.

The treatments used by our practitioners are always tailored to you depending on the cause but as chiropractors, a common intervention we use when appropriate is spinal manipulation.

How Does Spinal Manipulation Work?

This form of treatment is a safe and effective way to bring about changes in spinal function due to its effects on the joints, muscles and nervous system.

Chiropractors undertake significant training in this area of treatment during their studies including how to locate areas needing treatment, when it is indicated and how to perform the treatment safely and effectively.

Spinal manipulation consists of a high speed, low amplitude stretch directed to a specific spinal segment or joint.

Some benefits of spinal manipulation include:

  • Improved Spinal Movement
  • Pain Relief
  • Altered Spinal Control
  • Improved Circulation

What Other Treatments Do We Use?

We often combine spinal manipulation with soft tissue treatments directed at muscles found to be tight or weak or having trigger points, which prevent normal function.

Soft Tissue Treatments may include:

  • Graston Therapy
  • Kinesiotaping
  • Dry Needling
  • Active Release Technique


Exercise Prescription

Another important aspect is the use of tailored exercises to help fix altered movement patterns, which often occur after injury. These may include balance exercises, core neck and spinal muscle strengthening and/or eye exercises all with the aim of improving and maintaining proper spinal control, support and motion.

Why Are Follow Up Treatments Needed?

The benefits of the treatments we use are best achieved with a plan of treatment whereby each treatment builds on the last to give a longer lasting change or improvement in spine function. This is because repetition is key when trying to teach the nervous system and spine to change.

How Long Will It Take?

This is dependent on the problem, however most people require an initial intensive treatment plan whereby visits are more frequent in the first 4 weeks and then gradually taper as the benefits become more long lasting and the injury heals. After this time it may be necessary to see you at regular intervals for a spinal check-up to prevent flare-ups.

Can I Claim Private Health Insurance?

Yes. We have Hicaps facilities available for fast claiming on the spot so you don’t need to process your private health refunds yourself. Keep in mind your level of cover will determine whether chiropractic will be claimable or not.
