Chiropractors work on the premise that the function of the spine and the function of the nervous system are linked. We believe that by correcting spinal dysfunction we can have a positive influence on the function of your nervous system and therefore your overall health and wellbeing.
At Goonellebah Family Chiropractic, our focus is identifying and correcting the underlying cause of your symptoms and pain. We work closely with your health professionals, when required, in order to give you the best care and get the best results for your health.

Many of our patients are referred to us by other patients or local health providers and general practitioners. We have a large network of local health practitioners who we work closely with to ensure the best results for our patients.
The Goonellabah Family Chiropractic office is fitted with state-of-the-art equipment - including digital x-ray facilities and omni drop piece tables, to provide the most up to date and scientifically validated care possible.
