Our Mission:

‘To provide safe, gentle and effective Chiropractic care for individuals and families so they may experience optimal spinal health and wellbeing’.

Chiropractic care is more than just spinal health, it’s about the health of your whole body.

At Carrier Street Chiropractic, we are passionate about helping families and individuals experience greater health, naturally, by providing gentle, professional chiropractic care. 

We consider your stage of life and spinal health and provide appropriate care designed to help you achieve your health needs and goals. We provide individual care plans, involving;

  • Specific Chiropractic care
  • Exercises designed to strengthen and rehabilitate 
  • Regular progress exams
  • Work in conjunction with other healthcare professionals with the aim of assisting your current health needs.

We also promote research-based education to help our patients make healthier choices in regards to diet, exercise and movement, sleep and their mental and emotional well-being.

While many people associate chiropractic with back pain, we are committed to promoting a better understanding of how the spine moves and how it can affect and influence body function and performance.
