Afferentation Chiropractic was founded in June 2018 by owner, Dr Øystein Kåsa. Dr Kåsa wanted to build a clinic that would provide the local community with treatment options to help a number of common complaint conditions, ranging from back pain to vestibular complaints.
Chiropractic is a health care discipline, which emphasises the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health. Chiropractors recognise the value and responsibility of working in cooperation with other health care practitioners when in the best interest of the patient.
In addition to Chiropractic, Dr Kåsa uses vestibular rehabilitation techniques to treat vertigo & dizziness. Afferentation Chiropractic has VOG (infrared Video Goggles) and computerised dynamic posturography available for assisting in diagnosis of conditions causing vertigo or dizziness.
Chiropractic techniques include Gonstead, Diversified, Activator, Drop table, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation (IASTM), Dry needling and Rehabilitation
Our clinic is located in the heart of Newcastle East inside the beautiful Yoga Loft, and has a very calm and welcoming energy. We are lucky enough to have breathtaking views over Newcastle beach and Nobby’s headland. There is parking located on the street outside, or we can be easily accessed by public transport via bus and soon to be light rail.
