A real pain in the head- a Melbourne Chiropractor explains

Headaches are no fun, we know this because they’re common occurrences and usually a response to a particularly stressful day, however if you’re a regular sufferer of migraines, you will know only too well how debilitating and severe they can be.

That’s a lot of people in pain on a regular basis.

Beat the fear – How chiropractic can conquer your fear of falling

Meanwhile, the cartilage lined knee joint has the menisci, which provide articulation as well as lubrication. The bursae, which surround the joint, also provide lubrication. Now when an injury occurs to any of these structures, you are bound to experience knee pain.
