Welcome to Active Back Care.
Active Back Care is a highly respected, non-surgical back and spinal care clinic focused on pain relief, recovery and sports rehabilitation. A Castle Hill fixture for more than 10 years, our clinic specializes in the treatment of chronic back and neck pain, headaches and migraines, and sports injuries of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, and ankle.
As a multidisciplinary clinic, our professionals come from a variety of backgrounds but work together seamlessly to locate and correct the root causes of pain. We also help our clients to strengthen and stabilize the spine and main body joints to minimize the risk of recurrent injuries.
Our professional clinic staff includes:
- Massage therapists
At Active Back Care we believe that the best care methods and clinical results come from an evidence-based approach, so we are committed to keeping up to date on the latest science, including clinical guidelines and medical research findings. Each of our staff undergoes continuing education to stay at the forefront of pain relief methods, injury recovery and rehabilitative care.
What Makes Active Back Care Special?
Our Commitment to Results
To Dr. Rod Weiland and all of our staff at Active Back Care, there’s nothing more important than results. No matter what hurts, our primary goals are to relieve your pain and to help you stay pain-free in the future.
Our patients come to us from all walks of life and with all kinds of physical challenges—and our multidisciplinary approach enables us to deliver results that are custom-fitted to each individual’s lifestyle and needs.
We are thrilled to have feedback from past and current clients who tell us they can finally sit, stand, bend, and move without pain. We hear from patients who appreciate our short wait times, our flexible scheduling hours, our simple insurance billing process, and our personalized approach. But most of all, our clients appreciate our commitment to delivering the fast, effective, and long-term pain relief that transforms their lives.
What can you expect from Dr. Rod Weiland and his associates?
- Less pain. No headaches. More energy.
- Greater mobility and flexibility.
- Power to reclaim your life.
- Care and support to help you recover.
We are committed to helping you achieve all of that, and more.
At Active Back Care, we provide effective treatment for:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Shoulder, arm, elbow, wrist and hand pain
- Muscle strains and sprains
- Hip, leg, knee, shin, ankle, and foot pain
- Sports injuries
- Work-related stress
- Car accident injuries
Longer sessions means faster pain relief
Dedicated to effective pain relief solutions, we make sure our therapists have access to the most cutting-edge medical science and up-to-date equipment—but our commitment goes even further than that. We spend as much time with you as necessary to ensure that you not only feel better, but that you learn to care for your body and support your ongoing recovery process.
We believe the personal touch matters at least as much as the quality of treatment, and that’s why we take the time to get to know you. We customize the length of our sessions to provide the greatest relief in as short a time as possible. Sometimes that may mean longer or shorter sessions as we fine-tune your treatment programs.
We also don’t believe in treatment programs that drag on forever. Instead of staying locked into a model that puts every patient in the same treatment box for an indefinite length of time, we break out of the mould and deliver customized treatment that gets to the heart of your needs quickly and offers real, lasting relief.
Why we love referrals
Many of our patients come to us via referral—through the local network of medical doctors, surgeons, and pain specialists who know the quality of the work we do at Active Back Care—but we also provide numerous referrals to those community health care providers.
We’re good at what we do—and it shows in the pain relief we provide through chiropractic, massage and physiotherapy—but sometimes we come into contact with clients who need help that we can’t provide. In those cases, we are pleased to provide referrals to qualified specialists and medical professionals who deliver the targeted care those patients need.
About fees and payment
We happily accept payments through the electronic HiCaps system, and we do everything possible to make the process as simple and painless as possible. After all, who wants to bother with paperwork when they are in pain?
If you do have any questions or concerns, please let us know in advance. We’re always available to discuss our fees and payment terms with you.

12 Reasons to Choose Active Back Care
What sets our clinic apart? Let us count the ways.
At Active Back Care, we offer care that can’t be beat. Here are 12 reasons our patients choose us for their spinal, structural, and sports medicine needs.
- Unique multidisciplinary approach
Unlike most other clinics, Active Back Care offers a unique approach to structural health. Our staff includes chiropractors, physiotherapists, and massage therapists all working together and under one roof. Our health care professionals share information and collaborate on patient care strategies to ensure the most effective treatment.
- Registration and certification
All of our health care professionals have degrees and/or certifications in their chosen fields and are registered with the relevant state or national boards, as well as the appropriate professional associations.
- Training, training, and more training
We believe that ongoing learning is the key to great patient care. That’s why each staff member, from lead chiropractors to front desk staff, continually undergoes evaluation and education to fine-tune our skills. Our chiropractors and physiotherapists complete more than double the required hours of post-graduate professional development each year so we can offer you the best possible care.
- Fair and reasonable fees
You won’t find us among the highest-priced health clinics, but we’re not dirt cheap either. In fact, our rates are—intentionally—right in the middle. We aim to offer a bargain price for the highest standard of care, by price-checking our local competitor clinics and setting fees that are neither too low nor too high.
- Convenient appointments
Our extended hours make it easy for anyone to make an appointment. Take your pick of an early-morning session before work, an evening time slot after you leave the office, or even a weekend appointment.
- No rush—really!
Unlike other practitioners, who may try to cram in as many patients per day as possible, we focus on quality, not quantity. You will never feel rushed during an appointment at Active Back Care. Our schedule is structured so that our practitioners can devote as much time as necessary to provide you with a thorough and precise treatment session—as well as discuss any additional customized recommendations for your optimal health.
- Really easy parking
It may seem like a minor detail, but if you’ve ever had to circle the block several times or walk half a mile to get to a medical office, you know the importance of convenient and accessible parking. Our central location offers convenient on-site and street parking, so you won’t have to stress over finding a spot, pay for an expensive parking garage, or rush on foot to get to your appointment.
- Amazing support staff
Any good practice is composed of more than its doctors and therapists. Our front desk and support staff are an integral part of the Active Back Care experience, offering the caring warmth and friendly professionalism our clinic is known for.
- Evidence-based treatment
With the emphasis we place on training and continuing education, it should be no surprise that our approach is highly scientific and evidence-based. Unlike marketing-driven clinics, our treatment focuses not on selling products or services, but on providing the most effective regimen for your individual health and fitness needs.
- Collaboration with specialists and GPs
We are pleased to work with medical doctors to create the safest and most effective treatment protocols for each patient. With a reputation for excellent care and thorough, responsible networking on patient care, Active Back Care is one of the few local clinics to regularly receive referrals from local GPs and medical specialists.
- Best practices for care
To provide you with the best possible treatment, we integrate therapeutic best practices in every part of our chiropractic, physiotherapy, and massage therapy services. If we’re unable to help, we are happy to refer you to a qualified practitioner from a network of highly respected medical specialists.
- Lasting results
Our goal is always to provide our patients with outcomes that minimize pain, improve mobility, and restore strength and well-being. We provide our clients with basic tools for self-care, enabling them to achieve long-term health, flexibility, and comfort. As much as we love having you visit, our goal is to eventually see you walk out our door with no reason to return!Ready to schedule your first chiropractic, therapeutic massage or physiotherapy session with one of our experienced practitioners?
