Lower Back Pain

Lets face it- nobody enjoys pain, yet almost everybody suffers with back pain at one time or another. Back pain may vary from a slight niggling ache to sharp debilitating back pain that can affect many parts of the back and also radiate to other areas of the body (see sciatica). At Palm Beach Chiropractic we will aim to diagnose and treat your Musculoskeletal issue that may contribute to your back pain.

Neck Pain

The upper body has a remarkable capacity to compensate for stress and injuries but our spines can only take so much before neck pain results.

Today's modern Pandemic lifestyle is very much responsible for many of the problems in the neck and shoulder area. Poor work and computer posture, repetitive tasks, stress and disuse of the full range of motion of the neck can cause neck pain, discomfort, muscle tension in the neck, shoulders and at the base of the skull. Your Palm Beach Chiropractor will aim to treat Musculoskeletal issues that may relate to your Neck pain.

Some types of Headaches and Migraines

Please note: If your headache problem is not a Chiropractic case, you will be referred to the appropriate health care provider.


Sciatica literally means inflammation to the sciatic nerve. This nerve stems from the spinal nerves in the lower back and runs all the way down the back of the leg and into the foot. Sciatica may create pain, weakness or pins and needles down the leg.

Sports Injuries

Being an active sportsmen, Dr Paul Cater and Dr James Shipway realises the importance of sports injury treatments.

All sports injuries are different and you will need a thorough examination to determined if your case may be benefited by Chiropractic intervention. 

Almost all professional sports teams globally utilise a Chiropractor as part of their medical staff. Paul was lucky enough to work alongside some of the best European sports Chiropractors during his stint in the United Kingdom including the Chiropractors for Everton Football Club, Bolton Wanderers, Bury Football Club and the Greenedge cycling team.

Dr Cater and Dr Shipway supports local sporting clubs and volunteers his sports Chiropractic care locally at the Gold Coast challenge triathalon, Palm Beach AFL club, Gold Coast Stand up paddle boarding meets (SUP be fit) and Kingscliff District Football Club.

Remember all injuries take time to heal.

Cranial Therapy


At some stage in our lives we all experience an accident, slip or a fall to varying degrees whether it is in a motor vehicle, a tumble learning to walk, a knock playing sports or embarrassingly tripping on the gutter crossing the road. 

Please note: If your accident is serious in nature, Dr Cater and Dr Shipway may refer you for X-rays. Palm Beach Chiropractic is situated next door to South Coast Radiology- so if X-rays are required, our referral system is quick and the results are instantly relayed back to our Chiropractors.

If your problem is deemed not a Chiropractic case, you will be referred to the appropriate health care provider.
