At Noosa Life Chiropractic and Massage, we see a diversity of different people seeking varying solutions. Here are some of the common conditions we’ve seen:

Lower Back Pain

Pain in the lower back has many potential causes. These include twisting, lifting, poor posture, prolonged sitting, lack of exercise, obesity, strain or sprain injuries, and poor workplace and home ergonomics. Before we provide natural treatment, it is important that we conduct a comprehensive Chiropractic examination. The exam may include a computerised spinal range of motion study, spinal imaging (X-rays) where needed and other specific orthopaedic and neurological tests.


When the large sciatic nerve is irritated or compressed at or near its point of origin, sciatica symptoms occur. Burning or tingling leg pain, weakness, numbness and other uncomfortable symptoms can occur with varying degrees of intensity. Disk herniation is the cause of most sciatic pain. While traditional approaches to sciatic pain include invasive spinal surgery, we take a natural, more conservative and noninvasive approach with Chiropractic spinal adjustments.

Disk Injuries

The spinal disk is considered a connective ligament designed for strength and flexibility and is subject to strain and sprain. When this occurs there is often swelling and inflammation that can cause pressure on spinal nerves. Sometimes this type of injury is called a slipped disk or a pinched nerve, with pain resulting. Fortunately, the conservative, pain-free Chiropractic spinal adjustments we offer can allow you to return your disk to its original pain-free state.

Pinched Nerves

The pain associated with a pinched nerve can range from mild to severe and can be debilitating -interfering with normal activities and sleep, in particular. Pinched nerves can develop anywhere in the body but typically refer to an extremity such as an arm or leg, as well as lower backs and necks. A sharp, catching pain often occurs when performing a certain movement. Our natural Chiropractic care may provide relief from pinched nerve pain.


Typically caused by automobile accidents, whiplash has many painful symptoms and can limit or decrease the range of motion. If you’ve been in an auto accident recently, it’s critical that you seek care straightaway. We will provide a comprehensive examination and offer conservative and gentle Chiropractic care to help you get out of pain and on the path to recovery.


The throbbing pain of headaches can adversely affect a person’s quality of life. There are numerous types of headaches including muscle tension headaches, migraine headaches, cluster headaches and more. According to research, Chiropractic care can effectively address the most common types of headaches. Even severe headaches can be relieved when spinal joints are gently realigned by Chiropractic adjustments.

Shoulder Pain

“Impingement syndrome” is the most common type of shoulder pain and it’s characterised as a sharp, grabbing localised pain when the arm is placed on the back. Chiropractors are highly trained in diagnosing shoulder problems and providing natural, nonsurgical solutions. The Chiropractic adjustment and soft tissue work are used together to restore the affected area naturally.

Neck Pain

Technically called the cervical spine, the neck starts under the skull and extends down to the top of your shoulders. Facets are the joints of the neck that allow each adjacent neck bone to have a range of motion. Facet joint problems represent a good example of mechanical neck pain. Facets can be injured or strained, or they can slightly misalign causing localised or radiating pain. We will work to determine the cause of your neck pain through spinal imaging (neck X-rays) when required.

Hip and Knee Pain

Hip and knee pain has many causes that range from common ligament and muscle strains and sprains to significant tears. Did you know that imbalance of the sacroiliac joints is the most common, and possibly most overlooked reason why pain occurs? The natural treatment at our practice considers the entire lower back, sacroiliac, hips, knees, ankles and feet as a kinetic chain.

Sports Chiropractic

Chiropractic is incredibly beneficial when it comes to addressing varying sports injuries that range from common sprains and strains to injuries that are more debilitating. Chiropractic is used by professional sports teams throughout the world. If you have suffered from a sports-related injury and are looking to get back in the game and regain function and mobility, we want to help you.


Scoliosis describes an abnormal curve or more precisely a curvature in the human spine. Scoliosis will show an obvious deviation in the upper or lower back to one side. Chiropractors are highly familiar with spinal conditions and well trained in differential diagnosis of spinal conditions. Our Chiropractors are skilled at providing natural care to address the condition.


Characterised by joint pain and stiffness, arthritis is inflammation of one or more of your joints. The condition typically worsens with age. Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are the most common types. Through Chiropractic care, we are able to gently mobilise the affected joints attempting to break up crystal deposits and increase joint mobility.
