What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a primary health care system specialising in diagnosis, treatment, management of misalignments of the joints especially those of the spinal column, which are believed to cause other disorders by affecting the nerves, muscles, and organs.
Chiropractic uses a hands-on approach with spinal manipulation to reduce pain, improve function and increase mobility by gently re-aligning the joints. Chiropractic is not just for your back but can help with different parts of your body through spinal and joint alignment.
What is ABC?
Advanced Biostructural Correction™ (or ABC™ for short) is a holistic approach to structural healthcare correcting postural alignment, restoring structural function and overall health. ABC™ recognises that the body is only a partially self-correcting system.
Bones can become stuck forward in a direction that the body cannot self correct as there are no muscles to pull them backwards.
When this happens the body compensates and twists up creating an unwanted mechanical load on the body that puts unnecessary stress and tension on your muscles, joints and nerves.
This is often the cause of a wide variety of pain and symptoms.
ABC™ addresses the body’s underlying issues by correcting only the bones that have gone forward that your body cannot fix by itself. As a result, the body unwinds and restores posture, reduces pain, and optimises function.

How We Can Help You
At Posture and Wellness, we exclusively employ ABC™ which is a highly effective health care treatment for pain relief, structural correction, and overall wellness. By correcting the body’s structure we get to the root cause of the problem. This treatment is not a “quick fix” but we consistently help patients overcome their pain and long-term health conditions by identifying and correcting the underlying causes.
The effects of ABC are often visible and felt immediately. We also take digital postural photos to tack results and record the body’s changes.
In most cases, we relieve or alleviate pain and symptoms, heal old structural injuries which might still be affecting you and optimise your body’s overall function.
It allows the body to heal and get well and enables you to achieve your personal health goals.
