Our patients understand they will receive the best possible care, service and treatment to help them.  So that they have the confidence in referring their families and friends, and know, with certainty that they will receive the best possible care too.


If you suffer from any back pains, neck pains or headaches, searching advice from a chiropractor can lead to a drug or surgery free solution.  Many factors can be responsible for these pains, from improper sitting or lifting, over-exertion, or trauma to inherited spinal abnormalities.  Many of the pain-sensing nerves of the spine are in the joints at the back of each spinal bone that help to control how the spinal bones move.  The normally smooth surfaces on which these joints glide can become rough, irritated and inflamed.

Another cause of lower back pain can be a bulging disc putting pressure on the spinal cord or a nearby nerve root.  The result is often numbness, tingling or pain down the leg.

The chiropractic approach is to help restore a more normal motion and position of affected spinal bones by specific chiropractic adjustments.

Dr Carrie Rigoni

BSc (chiropractic), BChiro

Chadstone Chiropractic has recently welcomed Dr Carrie to the team.  Dr Carrie is a children’s chiropractor, meaning her patients are all under 16 years of age! She studied in Perth WA, before moving to Melbourne to work in one of Australia’s prestigious children-only clinics. She has since created a family of her own, and made Melbourne her home.

Many of Dr Carrie’s patients are under 12 months of age, with mothers bringing their babies in for chiropractic assessments not long after birth. Often those babies continue with chiropractic check-ups well into their school years!

School age children often have check-ups to ensure optimal growth and development, during a time of rapid body growth!

Carrie offers gentle chiropractic to cater for your precious children, and has additional training in nutrition through ACNEM, and nutritional support is included in all of her consults.

Carrie loves supporting parents in raising happy, healthy children, and building such strong relationships that her patients are part of her extended family.

Dr Carrie will be available on Wednesday afternoons.
