Peek Practice provides a multidisciplinary, integrated approach to spine and neuromusculoskeletal disorder treatment. We believe in using the latest, evidence-based information and methods to treat your area of concern. What We Treat: Lower Back Pain Neck pain Headache and Migraine Disc Problems Sciatic Pain Whiplash Pain, Tingling and Numbness in Hands and Feet Pain between Shoulder Blades Sports Injury Repetitive Strain Injuries Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Shoulder Problems Knee and Foot Pain As experts in our field we believe: • You should get results quickly • Your treatment should be cost effective • Your health care team should stay informed • Your treatment should be based on the latest evidence based knowledge

Mission: Providing state-of-the-art treatment strategies for both simple and complex disorders of the spine and nervous system. Key to this tenet is providing accurate diagnosis, logical explanations and individual treatment.

It takes 17 YEARS to get only 14 % of research findings adopted into clinical practice! 🙀

Crazy to think that there is so much in the way of useful information already out there that we don’t utilise and implement today!

Is this really what’s going on?


Whilst it may seem to feel this way it’s not how it works. Knowing what’s really going on can be much more reassuring.

The language we use and the thoughts we have around that language can HINDER our recovery!

Magnesium and health outcomes: an umbrella review of systematic reviews and meta-analyses of observational and intervention studies

Strong evidence according to the GRADE suggests that Mg supplementation reduces the intensity/frequency of migraine. Approx Dose - 400 - 600 mg / day. Purpose To map and grade all health outcomes associated with magnesium (Mg) intake and supplementation using an umbrella review.

Pain is a complex experience, unique to each individual.

The social and psychological components of pain are inseparable from the biological.

Be kind, listen, validate and support those you know in pain.

Medical Doctors, Chiropractors Top Choices for Spine Care

The vast majority of neck and back pain patients who saw a chiropractor in the past year say their chiropractor listened to them (93%), provided convenient and quick access to care (93%), demonstrated care and compassion (91%), and explained things well (88%). U.S. neck and back pain sufferers are most likely to seek care from a medical doctor, but those who see a chiropractor or a physical therapist rate their care experiences better across four measures.

100 million Americans have chronic pain. Very few use one of the best tools to treat it.


Despite the tired narratives, chiropractic is backed by evidence

Critics like to propagate an old narrative that the chiropractic profession is not evidence-based. Canada’s new guideline for opioid therapy and chronic non-cancer pain, which includes recommendations of first-line therapies provided by chiropractors, demonstrates this is not the case. This criticism is antiquated, revealing potential bias, and lacks awareness of current clinical studies. Chiropractors can provide front-line assistance in tackling serious health crises – so don’t paint all practitioners with the same brush

Treating Chronic Pain With Non-Drug Approaches: What Does the Evidence Say? - RELIEF: PAIN RESEARCH NEWS, INSIGHTS AND IDEAS

“There is a growing recognition that these [non-drug] treatments are really valuable for chronic pain, because unlike invasive procedures and drugs, there is the possibility that they offer longer-term relief,” A recent study shows evidence for long-term benefits of exercise, psychological treatments and other non-pharmacological strategies.
