Part of the Community

Mark and Linda have been working within this community for the past 14 years, providing exceptional care to patients in the Forster Tuncurry area and those that regularly travel from Gloucester and surrounds, Taree, Johns River, Newcastle and even further afield. Many visitors to the area that find Linda and Mark eagerly book their chiropractic appointments in when they book their next holiday to the region.

During this time they have been supporters of Great Lakes Education Fund, Tobwabba Medical Centre, Westpac Helicopter Service, The Woman’s Shed, and many of the sporting teams currently including the Forster Tuncurry Hawks Rugby League Football Club and Forster Tuncurry Boardriders club.

They love sharing their health message and regularly speak at local clubs and associations. If this is something you may be interested in, please contact us for more information.

Low Level Laser

The action of Infra-red low laser therapy stimulates damaged cells to increase their energy production which is used to transform the damaged cells back to healthy active cells. Infra-red laser boosts oxygen levels, decreases pain and inflammation and speeds the healing response. Laser therapy may help the following conditions:

  • Pain
  • Inflammation
  • Wound healing
  • Pre or post-surgical conditions
  • Neuro-degenerative conditions
  • Skin issues
  • Sporting injuries
  • Muscle fatigue
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Oral mucositis.

Laser therapy has a cumulative effect and works best with multiple applications. It may work quickly or may require one visit for every decade of your age before it starts to become obvious that it’s working. Research also shows that the combination of laser and chiropractic may produce the best results.

Protocols to suit your requirements are available.
