Cervical Radiculopathy - When angry nerves in the neck give us neck pain, arm pain, and weak tingly fingers!

Cervical Radiculopathy is a neck and arm condition that happens when the nerves coming out of the neck become irritated, often causing neck pain that can spread down into the shoulders, middle back, arm, hands, and fingers. Some people even get pins and needles, numbness, and weakness in their hands and can start dropping things! Managing this condition takes time, and if done well, can prevent the need for any surgery.

Are crystals in your ear from BPPV causing your dizziness?

Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) is a common condition where crystals can form inside the vestibular apparatus inside the ear, which often results in dizziness and vertigo. Our Chiropractors and Physiotherapists at Milsons Point Health can help diagnose BPPV and rule out any other causes, then perform repositioning manoeuvres that can dramatically help settle the symptoms.

Moon Boots - One small step for man, one giant leap for foot and ankle injury management!

Moon boots, also known as Controlled Ankle Motion (CAM) boots, are one of the supportive devices our Physiotherapists and Chiropractors use to help manage foot and ankle conditions like fractures, ligament sprains, and even tendon tears. These work by immobilising the foot, and have the advantage over traditional foot casts because you can take them off to shower, exercise, and even scratch those itches!
