Chiropractic care is suitable for people of all ages and is an effective holistic approach to treating musculoskeletal dysfunction, whether it is back pain, headaches, shoulder impingement, tennis elbow or plantar fasciitis.
Here at Crestacre we use a diverse range of techniques to treat a wide range of conditions. These treatments include manipulation of the spine and extremities where appropriate, soft tissue techniques including Trigger point therapy, Dry-needling, massage and shockwave therapy. We combine these treatments with a rehabilitation program specifically tailored to your needs.
Shockwave therapy is high intensity acoustic energy that is transmitted into musculoskeletal tissues to promote regeneration and healing processes. Acoustic waves interact with tissues, accelerating tissue repair and cell growth. This can have analgesic effects and restore mobility.
Shockwave therapy is a non-surgical treatment for chronic or acute musculoskeletal problems and persistent pain. It is a highly effective, non-invasive treatment option for:
- Trigger point release
- Plantar fasciitis
- Rotator cuff injury
- Tendonitis (tennis elbow, golfers elbow, Achilles tendinopathy, patellar tendinopathy)
- Heel spurs
- Groin strain
- Shin splints
Diagnostic Ultrasound Imaging
(for musculoskeletal complaints of the upper and lower limbs only) -Not currently accepting external referrals
Ultrasound is a completely safe and non-invasive imaging modality with no side-effects. It allows for a dynamic, real-time assessment and interrogation of the area of interest. Ultrasound may also be used to monitor the progress and effectiveness of treatment as it does not use ionising radiation and can be performed multiple times.
Ultrasound can be used to help diagnose:
- Tendon tears or tendonitis
- Muscle tears
- Ligament sprains or tears
- Inflammation or fluid within bursae and joints
- Nerve entrapments such as carpal tunnel syndrome
- Ganglion cysts
Suffering from chronic low back pain?...always have really tight hips?...or do you have excessive movement in your knees? The answer could be right under your feet. Think of your feet as the foundation of a house. They support the weight of everything above them and when a small problem develops, the subtle changes in the way you walk will cause a chain reaction of adjustments in your walking/running biomechanics and posture. These changes will put stress on your other joints and can lead to knee pain, hip pain and even back pain. Our gait scanner will detect even the most subtle abnormalities in stance and gait which are not noticeable to the naked eye. Our orthotics are custom made to suit your needs based on a report from your scan. The orthotic shell comes with a lifetime guarantee to assure you of their quality. We have a variety of styles from sports to every day orthotics to suit your needs.
Fantastic and professional service. Dr Clarke has helped me overcome injuries that due to my type of work are commonplace. Would highly recommend to anybody who is putting up with pain. You really do not have to.
From the moment I stepped into her office I felt welcome and seen. Genevieve proved to be both knowledgeable and skillful and it’s honestly one of the best chiropractors I’ve been to (I’ve seen a fair few). Great communicator, professional and friendly. I can’t thank her enough for sorting me out!!
I do a lot of Sports and activities outside and Dr. Clarke has treated me every time I get any pain in my legs, arms, neck and back very efficiently. I am able to play sports without pain for at least a month. But even if I get any more pain in my muscles, I can always count on Dr. Clarke to fix my problem.
Genevieve has been treating me for my headaches and I can honestly say there has been a big improvement. I have walked into the clinic with a headache and walked out without one on several occasions. I received a thorough explanation of the cause of my headache and how it could be treated. Im not a fan of having my neck manipulated, but Genevieve has been able to use other methods to treat my headaches. If you suffer with headaches I definitely recommend.
I couldnt recommend Genevieve enough. I am so lucky to have such a fantastic, dedicated and skilled health professional in my area. i have had chronic pelvic pain for over 10 years. I had tried other chiropractors and other treatments such as physiotherapy with limited success. What i like most about Genevieve is her approach. She approaches chiropractic care holistically, focussing on the cause as well as the symptom and she is always open to trying a new approach if something doesn’t appear to be working. Genevieve has used a variety of techniques to treat me including manual adjustment, acupuncture and specifically tailored rehabilitation exercises. Genevieve has also used an ultrasound scan to diagnose a chronic toe problem that has been misdiagnosed for years which is currently being treated with shockwave therapy. She has also treated my newborn who had neck stiffness and could only turn his head one way. Also, when he was starting to crawl he had some hip treatment.
Genevieve has been treating my son since birth. He had problems turning his head which was making feeding difficult. I noticed improvement after only a handful of treatments. I now him once every two or three months for a check up. He loves going and Genevieve is really good with him. The treatment itself is very gentle and not like you would expect if you have ever had chiropractic treatment as an adult. It is also great that I was able to take advantage of the mother and baby package l, which means my son gets free treatment until he is 3 years old.
Dr Clarke has done wonders for my back, truly! I had struggled with my back for years and I have seen a marked difference after treatment here. Genevieve is also someone who sees you as a whole and not just your problem. Thanks again! x
Always had painful long term injuries as a manual trade worker, caused from shoveling, hand digging , laying kerbs, barrowing etc. Physio and massages never seemed to help in the long term, started seeing this chiropractor regularly and my only regret is not doing it sooner. She has been really attentive and has helped me see off injuries which I thought would be lifelong. Will keep going and I highly recommend.
