About Back Care is a full service practice. Our aim is to meet all your chiropractic and medical imaging needs under the one-roof, and have you pain-free and back to doing what you need and want to do, quickly.
About Back Care was the first clinic anywhere in Victoria to provide a standing MRI service. We’ve since widened this to include a full-range of medical imaging, including general x-ray services, CT scans, tomosynthesis and long-view X-ray.
All our services are suitable for people wanting to maintain their general health and fitness, and is also suitable in aiding with injury management for athletes of all sports.
We also provide a comprehensive seven-day a week emergency service if you are in acute pain after hours. To find out more about our emergency services, go to our After Hours page.
