Joint Health Chiropractic is situated at the Wolwespruit Bike & Trail Park just around the corner from the Mediclinic Kloof Hospital. We treat sportsmen, outdoor enthusiasts, office jockeys, moms-to-be, young and old. The term ‘chiropractic’ originated from the Greek language – ‘chiro’ refers to hand and ‘praktos’ means done, and for this reason chiropractic means ‘done by hand’.

Therefore, a variety of musculoskeletal (referring to soft tissue, muscles, bones, ligaments and tendons) conditions and biomechanical disorders are treated utilizing conservative manual therapy. The primary objective is to remove interference at the origin, in order to improve mobility, enhance function, decrease pain and optimize quality of life.


Some issues commonly associated with joint dysfunctions in infants and children include nursing issues, poor sleep, fussiness in babies, gastrointestinal issues, postural asymmetries, behavioural problems, torticollis, positional head deformities, chronic pain and headaches. These issues could be resorted with restoring proper joint function and communication allowing the body to heal and flourish during development.

Headaches & Migraines

Pain from headaches can range from occasional to frequent and from mild to debilitating, while some can lead to nausea and dizziness. The most common type of headaches include migraines, tension type headaches, cluster headaches and cervicogenic headaches. Cervicogenic refers to the origin of the pain being generated by structures in the neck. Chiropractic care including spinal manipulative therapy and the release of tight musculature surrounding the area provides successful relief in many headache cases.

Temporomandibular Joint (jaw) Issues

Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD)  refers to the tenderness and pain experienced in the jaw caused by a dysfunction of the TMJ or the involved soft tissue including musculature. This condition can be divided into three categories being myofascial pain dysfunction, internal derangement and degenerative joint disease. Risk factors for developing TMD include muscle spasm in jaw muscles, grinding your teeth, psychosocial stress, trauma as experienced with a motor vehicle accident, hyper/hypomobile TMJ, etc.

Neck Pain

Neck Pain

Neck pain is common in most people. Chiropractic care can help identify the cause and attempt to provide relief of previous injury from a bad fall or motor vehicle accident (whiplash injury), disc injuries, to troublesome occupational posture and ergonomics.

Shoulder, Elbow, Hand & Wrist Injuries

Chiropractic treatment includes, but are not limited to, the treatment of Rotator Cuff strains and tendinopathy, bursitis, Impingement Syndrome, Frozen Shoulder, Golfer’s elbow, Tennis elbow, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, ligament sprains, De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis, and wrist sprains.

Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain is now the leading cause of disability with a significant socioeconomic burden. Lower back pain most commonly results from mechanical issues and soft tissue injuries. These injuries include damage to the intervertebral discs, compression of nerve roots, and inadequate range of motion of the joints. Another big factor causing pain is the sedentary lifestyle followed when forced to sit at a desk for long periods of time. Evidence shows that chiropractic treatment is one of the leading conservative care and most cost-effective methods for relief of acute (recently acquired) and chronic (long term) back pain.


During pregnancy, many women experience aches and pains that they are not accustomed to. This is due to the increased weight and different distribution of weight (shift in the centre of gravity) around the body. Coupled with the increased flexibility of supporting structures and tissues due to hormonal influences, soon-to-be moms are often in a little discomfort. Chiropractic treatment provides an alternative approach to managing these discomforts, with the use of non-invasive, drug free methods.

Ergonomic Injuries

Ergonomics refers to the study of people’s efficiency in their working environment. Ergonomics attempts to fit the job to the person and not the person to the job. In this way a job will have minimal impact on a person from a physical and mental stress standpoint. Chiropractors can assist in showing patients how to setup their workstation correctly as well as provide treatments for the back and neck pain a patient may be experiencing.

Sports Injuries

Our practice has a big focus on providing care to sports men and women regardless of their age and discipline. The goal of treatment is the same – improved performance, improved recovery and a significant decrease in related sporting injuries. Many athletes utilize chiropractic care to achieve their optimal potential since it is based on a conservative, non-invasive and drug-free model.

Hip, Knee and Ankle Injuries

Chiropractic treatment includes, but are not limited to, sports injuries, muscle strains, ligament sprains, Piriformis Syndrome, Meniscus pathology, ITB Tendinopathy, Jumper’s Knee, etc.
