Pain, Numbness, Cold, Tingling or Weakness

Hand PainPain, numbness, cold, tingling or weakness in the hands, arms, feet or other parts of the body can bring your life to a halt and is often misdiagnosed and mistreated, leading to years of pain and frustration.

My personal experience with chronic health problems from a young age, combined with my qualifications and experience as an Acupuncturist, Chiropractor and Functional Neurologist give me a unique ability to investigate, diagnose and treat the most elusive function problems.

Conditions I can help with include…

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome can cause severe pain, numbness and tingling in the arms which often becomes all consuming. Surgery is often prescribed but also often avoidable with the right treatment.

My unique blend of Chiropractic, Acupuncture and Functional Neurology skills have turned out to be an ideal combination for helping people who suffer from this debilitating affliction.

Pain or numbness in whole hand

While it is possible to have both Ulnar Neuropathy AND Median Neuropathy at the same time, whole hand problems are more likely to be caused by Thoracic Outlet Syndrome.

Surgery free treatment options include acupuncture, myofascial techniques, adjusting the joints, biomechanics and reducing inflamation.

Injuries & Accidents

“Dr. Shay is an ACC registered clinician. If you have an injury, you can get your ACC filled out here in the office under Dr. Shay’s chiropractic license. You do not need to go to a GP first to file ACC, though you may certainly do that if you prefer. There are certain circumstances where you should see a GP first for ACC, as only a GP can diagnose on ACC for carpal tunnel syndrome as a work-related chronic injury.

Even if you have already been seeing a physio or osteopath or acupuncturist, you can still see Dr. Shay on your existing ACC claim because each treatment provider (e.g. chiropractor) has its own allocation of treatment sessions independent of other treatment providers (e.g. physio).

If you already have an ACC45 number, please bring this with you. You do not need a referral from your GP to come in for injury care. Please note that ACC only partially covers injury care and a co-payment is required.
