Common Conditions We See

Chiropractic can help many different health conditions. Our Kensington chiropractor specialise in helping all people in Kensington move and feel better. Have a look at the list of the most common conditions that we see:

Back pain

Back pain is one of the most common complaints we see as chiropractors at Forward Chiropractic. Around 80 % of all Australians will experience an episode of back pain at some stage in their life. For anyone who has suffered with this condition, you are aware of how debilitating it can be. This is why it is the number one cause of years lived with a disability. Back pain can significantly impact your daily life, hampering many everyday activities.

Neck pain

Neck pain can be very debilitating. Slight movement of the neck can be incredibly painful, especially in the acute phase. While as the condition becomes more chronic neck pain becomes more stiff, and sore with a dull ache. Limited and painful range of motion is usually present with this condition. Neck pain is one of the leading causes of disability in the western world, and is often closely associated with headaches.


For anyone who has suffered with this condition, you are aware of how debilitating it can be. Sciatica is usually associated with low-back pain, and is caused by a disc bulge which is compressing/pinching the sciatica nerve. Proper biomechanics and function of the spine is essential to prevent and heal sciatica.

Migraine and other headaches

Headaches and migraines can be incredibly debilitating. Only those who have suffered from these conditions know how bad they can be. Often the only thing you can do when a migraine strike is to lock yourself in a dark, quiet room and try to sleep until it passes.It is for this reason, migraines significantly affect many daily activities. Migraines are also a big reason for days off work in Australia.

Shoulder pain

Proper spinal alignment and posture is critical for well functioning shoulders. The shoulder joint is a ball and socket joint is held together by numerous muscles, ligaments and tendons. Due to this there are many potential conditions that arise within the shoulder. Conditions affecting the shoulder: bursitis, frozen shoulder, rotator cuff tears and strains, tendinopathies, A/C joint sprains and many more.

Hip pain

Pain in the hip is very common. Hip pain affects both children and adults and can vary in causes. As the hips are used in nearly every way we move (when we sit, when we stand, to walk, run etc), pain in this area may impact our ability to carry out everyday tasks. Severe hip pain may lead to a reduction in quality of life and may contribute to other health problems.
