We utilise a comprehensive range of chiropractic, orthopaedic, neurological and radiographic examination tools to make the most accurate diagnosis, rule out other possibilities and get to the core of the problem – the reason why it’s there in the first place.

At Windsor Spinal Health we take a modern approach to a well-established health field. For over a century, chiropractic has been practiced and developed for spinal-related disorders. It has stood the test of time in offering an effective, non-invasive solution to a range of functional conditions relating to the musculoskeletal and neurological systems. Nevertheless, we take a holistic approach as no single treatment approach can cure all ills. As such, we maintain a focus on diet, exercise, sleeping habits, ergonomics, and posture. Furthermore, we will refer you to your GP or most appropriate health professional if your condition requires a different specialty.

We use contemporary treatment strategies and exercise programs tailored for improving and maintaining spinal stability, posture and balance.

A large component of our work at Windsor Spinal Health is assessing the role of the nervous system in maintaining a healthy spine. The nervous system performs the incredible task of balancing our body’s range of motion with precise stability. In other words, to enjoy freedom of movement without restricted motion, the nervous system has to ensure that the joints and muscles are never in danger of being injured.

Unfortunately, when the nervous system fails to optimally control a joint there is a danger that the joint will exceed its maximum range of motion (joint sprain), or a muscle will exceed its length of stretch (muscle tear) or a disc will exceed its load-bearing capacity (disc tear and bulge). Trauma in some instances may be sudden, especially when involved in excessive impacts such as falls, sports injuries or vehicle accidents. However, in a majority of musculoskeletal cases it is an accumulation of micro-damage over time which leads to failure down the track.

It may be a surprise to learn that such a failure over time is a problem within the nervous system rather than simply the muscles or joints. It’s too easy to look for a single cause or instance of injury when pain suddenly appears, yet our lifestyle is much to blame for this problem. We sit too long, eat too much, drink too little (that’s water mind you), lack sufficient exercise and sleep, suffer excessive stress, and have poor postural, breathing and general movement patterns.

  Our focus at Windsor Spinal Health is to get you back on track and keep you there…

Diagnosing pain and where it is coming from is one thing, but measuring the performance of your neuromuscular system is where cutting-edge science meets the clinical exam. A multitude of neurological tests can be used to understand what is failing to keep your body in check and discover ways of helping you keep on top of any recurring or chronic issues. Be assured that if we do not think that we can help you, or if our examination reveals any additional concerns, we will refer you appropriately. We work with a number of superb local health practitioners including GPs, medical specialists, podiatrists, acupuncturists, massage therapists, naturopaths and exercise physiologists.
