A New Chiropractor at Unley Total Back Care

Dr Peter Kovac is very excited to now be the principal chiropractor in the Unley practice of TotalBackCare.

I come into this position with over 20 years of hands-on chiropractic clinical experience and of running busy and successful practices here in Australia and overseas.

Utilising many different chiropractic techniques and now uniquely combining with a team of outstanding physio and massage therapists to form TotalBackCare, Unley.

Originally from Sydney, I am now a Chiropractor local to Unley – my children are at the local Unley school and I live local to Unley.

Thank you to my all wonderful staff; Kristy, Meagan and Emma and to all the existing patients of the practice for making me feel so welcome. I very much look forward to getting to know you all much better and being a part of the local Unley community for many years to come as your Unley Chiropractor.

Combining Chiropractic and Massage for Maximum Health

When it comes to your quality of life, achieving maximum health is often the key to raising this factor as high as possible. This generally requires looking after your body in many different ways. For example, it means attending regular dental exams and cleanings, getting annual vision examinations, appearing at doctor’s physicals, and everything else required to ensure that your body is getting what it needs to do the be as strong and healthy as it can.

Well, chiropractic and massage therapy can also both be very important parts of the healthcare process. Each one offers many benefits, making them advantageous to promoting your health and wellness so that you can potentially continue to live a high quality of life for years, and even decades down the road.

Chiropractic Health Benefits

Our Unley Road chiropractic patients often experience reduced pain in their back, neck, and legs. This can help make everyday activities such as washing the dishes, tending to the garden, and cleaning the garage easier to do because they aren’t sidelined with pain. Chiropractic can also help reduce headaches, ease fibromyalgia pain, lessen sciatica issues, and more.

However, one of the major benefits of chiropractic is that it can help prevent issues too. When your spinal column is aligned and in place, your brain can communicate effectively with the rest of your body via your central nervous system (which runs through your spinal column), allowing every one of your organs and tissues to get the messages required to do what they need to do for your maximum health.

Massage Therapy for Optimal Health

Massage therapy also helps our Malvern patients achieve greater health in that it relaxes their bodies, thereby promoting healing within. Additionally, bothersome muscle knots can be tended to by our expert and professional staff, often reducing the amount of pain that is felt when a muscle is overworked or otherwise tense and not releasing.

By getting regular massages, you also reduce the likelihood of tension buildup. Many studies have found that unattended stress can have many negative consequences on your health. For instance, it increases your risk of potentially fatal heart attacks and strokes. It also has the ability to reduce your life satisfaction levels, making it difficult to enjoy the activities that you once enjoyed.

Chiropractic and Massage Together

By engaging in regular chiropractic and massage appointments, then, you stand to increase your brain’s ability to effectively communicate with the rest of your body while also lowering your risk of some major medical issues at the same time. At Total Back Care on Unley Road, we strive to give you the best health possible, which means tending to your body in many different ways, potentially helping as many of your systems as possible.

If you need help with your health issues, call our office on 8357 8211 for your preferred appointment time. We’ll look after you as best we can because we want you to have the highest quality of life possible!
