What We Do
Three specialties, one common goal
There are plenty of chiropractic, massage, and physiotherapy centers throughout Australia, but there are very few that offer all three treatments under one roof. At Active Back Care, each of our services is designed to help you feel your best and function at your full potential. Choose one treatment to meet your physical needs or “mix and match” to experience the maximum benefits of our full-body wellness services.
Reputable Chiropractic services
The human body is an amazing machine. With the right support and care, it is capable of healing and restoring itself to proper function and maximum performance. Chiropractic helps to restore the health of the spinal column and nervous system.
At Active Back Care, we offer a full spectrum of chiropractic treatments, including spinal techniques, stretching, and targeted exercises. Just as you monitor and treat other parts of the body, regular spinal examinations and corrections should be an essential component of your wellness regime. Have you experienced a car accident, sports injury, or other trauma and are now suffering from stiffness, soreness, or lack of function? If so, chiropractic care could help to promote greater flexibility, posture, range of motion, and pain-free living.
We use a wide range of techniques, hand-selecting customized treatment plans based on each patient’s individual needs, symptoms, and preferences. Your chiropractic techniques will be selected based on what is causing your back pain or neck pain. For instance, if you’re suffering from a disc injury, we’ll use specific techniques that have proven effective for that particular condition. All techniques are tailored to the comfort and condition of the patient.
You will never feel rushed during your appointments at Active Back Care. Our practitioners devote as much time as necessary to provide customized recommendations for your optimal wellness by prescribing thorough and precise treatment. Rest assured that you will leave our office feeling better than when you arrived—and with complete peace of mind about your long-term care.
Massage therapy for every body
There may have been a time when massage was considered a luxury, but today it has become an integral component of physical wellness as well as a powerful healing tool. Massage has been shown to alleviate pain, stress, and tension while preventing or improving chronic diseases and health conditions. Regular bodywork is also linked to higher energy levels, more restful sleep, and improved circulation and flexibility.
Choose from a variety of massage techniques offered by the skilled therapists at Active Back Care:
- Remedial massage: This technique was developed to provide relief from pain, soreness, and stiffness caused by injury.
- Therapeutic massage (deep tissue massage): This popular treatment works on the deep muscle layers to relieve longstanding symptoms, such as sciatica and deep back or hip pain.
- Swedish massage (relaxation massage): While Swedish massage may incorporate kneading, tapping, effleurage, friction, and vibration, it is a gentler and more relaxing technique than remedial or therapeutic massage.
- Sports massage: This type of massage is meant to stretch the body, improving range of motion and boosting muscle metabolism. This benefits everyone from the casual competitor to the professional athlete.
- Trigger point massage: This is one of the most effective ways to address myofascial trigger points in the muscles.
- Pregnancy and postnatal massage: Prenatal massage creates a feeling of relaxation and stimulates the release of natural pain-killing endorphins. It can also be used to improve balance and posture, alleviate discomfort, and relieve strain on the back, spine, hips, and legs.

Full spectrum Physiotherapy treatment
Physiotherapy is a means of treating injury or physical impairment with therapeutic exercises, joint mobilization, stretches, strapping, and electrophysical techniques. Physiotherapy is an integral component of our wellness services at Active Back Care.
One of our primary specializations is treating back and neck pain. Whether the issue is caused by joint problems, a slipped disc, a pinched nerve, or another problem, pain in the back and neck can cause debilitating symptoms that extend throughout the entire body. Our therapeutic treatments help to alleviate back and neck pain, improving range of motion, posture, and flexibility.
Our physiotherapy treatments aren’t confined to a pre-determined list. From cervicogenic headaches to ligament sprains, broken bones, and muscle strains, we treat all types of sports injuries and post-surgical conditions. In addition to treating existing problems, our physiotherapists can also offer expert guidance on injury prevention, helping you maintain a fit and healthy body.
While massage focuses primarily on relieving muscular tension and stress, physiotherapy also treats the body’s joints and skeletal components. When applied together, massage and physiotherapy are highly effective at reducing pain, increasing range of motion, and restoring normal bodily function. Many of our physiotherapy clients have come to us after experiencing car accidents, sports-related injuries, or other traumas, although the practice can also help with chronic physical ailments.
The trifecta of full-body wellness
There are dozens of factors that determine the way your body feels and functions. For optimal results, consider receiving massage therapy in conjunction with chiropractic care and physiotherapy.
Our team is comprised of highly trained chiropractors, massage therapists, and physiotherapists. We pursue continuing education to keep our skills fresh and current.
