Chiropractic is a primary health-care profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and overall management of conditions that are related to dysfunction of the joints, bones and muscles, and the effects they have on the nervous system. Working on any joints within the body and concentrating particularly on the spine, they use their hands to make gentle, precise adjustments (the chiropractic term for specific manipulation). These adjustments improve biomechanical and nervous system function and enhance the body's natural healing ability.
Peter Wuehr is the principal practitioner at Bay Family Chiropractic. Peter is an Australian trained and qualified chiropractor and massage therapist who recently established the family practice in Byron Bay, previously working in practices in Ballina and Sydney. Treatment at Bay Family Chiropractic consists of a wide range of manipulative techniques designed to improve the function of the joints, relieving pain and muscle spasm.
Peter has experience assessing and adjusting people from one day old to over ninety years old. He specialises in therapy for pediatric and pregnant clients, injuries in athletes, every day aches and pains as well as maintenance care to maximize health and wellbeing. Visitors to the clinic report benefits including improved motion, flexibility, posture, sleep, alleviation of headaches and much more. Peter works with patients to review stretching techniques and corrective exercises where relevant and aspires to excite his patients about the incredible ability and potential of their bodies.
Most recently Peter's continual professional studies have focused on children with learning and behavioural issues. The effects of this care are beneficial to all children as experienced by his own family and the many that he's seen through his practices.
