What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a hands on therapy using manual adjustments and soft tissue techniques with the aim to improve patient’s lives. Chiropractors are best known to provide management of musculoskeletal problems including lower back pain, neck pain and muscular tension associated with headaches, sciatica, rotator cuff injuries, knee injuries and ankle injuries.
Our Ringwood Chiropractor’s use the following types of treatment:
Manual adjusting which may result in a joint ‘cavitation’ or popping/cracking sound. Arthrostim Chiropractic Instrument adjusting which is a motorised tool used for manually adjusting joints and can be used on surrounding soft tissues to release trigger points. Activator: an instrument that mimics an adjustment with relative less force; this is beneficial for patients who have contraindications to manual adjusting. Rehabilitative Exercise: where your Ringwood Chiropractor will give you a range of exercises to increase the strength and or mobility of your spine. Home and Ergonomic advice: your Ringwood Chiropractor will give you advice on correcting or adjusting your workstation to the optimal position for you.
How could our Ringwood Chiropractors assist you?
Lower back pain can be understandingly debilitating, our Ringwood chiropractors see many people with low back pain and use high velocity low amplitude (HVLA) adjustments and muscle release. We see a variety of people in surrounding suburbs such as Wantirna, Heathmont, Bayswater, Mitcham and of course Ringwood it’s self.
Many people come to Chiropractors for a range of neck complaints. Many neck issues, these days, stem from our current increased use of technology. We are always looking down at our phones or jutting our neck forward to get closer to a computer screen. Our Chiropractors can offer a range of techniques that aim to improve the function of your neck and related posture.

The Hawthorn to Lilydale railway was built in 1882 through the suburb of Ringwood, making it a more notable town. The township was further developed in 1924 when the railway was electrified. This development boomed after the war and in 1960 the City of Ringwood was declared. In 1928 the clocktower was built as a memorial to the war. In 1967 Eastland shopping centre was opened in Ringwood. Ringwood has been the site of the second largest Cadbury’s chocolate factory in Australia since 1967. Cadbury produces chocolate bars including Cherry Ripe, Twirl and Easter eggs. Ringwood became home of the Connect East, owner and operator of Melbourne’s second toll road, the Eastlink.
