Our clinic aims to improve your symptoms and function by using advice and methods that work.

We are here to put you first, with care you can trust.

Common Reasons To Visit

Injury

At Karori Chiropractic we are ACC registered. If you have recently had an injury, you may be eligible to open an ACC claim and pay less for chiropractic care.

Opening a claim is a relatively simple process and can be done on the same day as your appointment. The chiropractor must first assess the injury to verify if a claim can be made.

You may already be covered if you previously opened a claim with a different health professional.

back pain

Back pain is the most common reason people visit a chiropractic clinic. Chiropractors are highly trained in identifying the various causes of spinal pain and knowing how to best manage each case.

At Karori Chiropractic we explain our findings and give advice on what you can do to recover from the condition as quickly as possible.

neck pain

The neck is designed to move, allowing people to enjoy the world around them. However this mobility comes at the sacrifice of stability, making the neck more vulnerable to injury and conditions causing pain and discomfort.

Causes of neck pain can vary and our thorough chiropractic physical assessment aims to provide insight into the specific cause of your pain.

headaches

Did you know that certain types of headaches and migraines originate in the neck? They are known as cervicogenic headaches and chiropractic treatment can often provide quick relief of symptoms.

We aim to find out what it is in your daily lifestyle that may be triggering headaches and give advice on how best to prevent them in the future.

pelvic pain

If you look at the human skeleton you’ll notice that all of the weight of the upper body rests on just two sacroiliac joints, which then transfers this weight through the pelvic bones into the two hip joints.

With all of this force, sometimes the smallest issue can cause a great deal of pain.

Nerve Irritation

Shooting pain, numbness and/or tingling in the arms or legs can be a result of impingement of a nerve some distance away from the actual site of the symptom.

A variety of structures can cause nerve irritation. Chiropractors are trained to find these causes and offer effective treatment options.

Posture

Poor posture could be a result of an underlying structural issue or due to repetitive lifestyle habits.

At Karori Chiropractic we use postural analysis techniques and patient history to help understand how your body is positioned and give stretching and exercise advice personalised to each individual’s specific anomalies.

Our Wellington Chiropractor

Wellington Chiropractor Ben O'Donnell

B Chiro, EVT Certified – NZ College of Chiropractic

Hi I’m Ben, chiropractor and owner of Karori Chiropractic.

You may have come across other chiropractors in the past and realised there’s a variety of treatment approaches out there.

Some do a couple of clicks and send you on your way, others may use a variety of devices or chiropractic techniques you’ve never seen before or heard of.

For me, I like to strictly follow what the research says should be helpful. Despite what some may say, there is actually a great deal of research behind manipulative therapy and why it is effective. As a result, a variety of professions use it, not just chiropractor’s.

After seeing and experiencing other clinics offer care that was rushed, limited and lacking researched-backed advice, I decided to start my own.

Karori Chiropractic opened in 2015 with the goal to put the focus back on the patient to give them the best chance of a positive outcome and an enjoyable experience. Central to this goal is an evidence-based approach.

I grew up in Masterton, where I first visited a chiropractor for back pain. It worked for me and I thought it was pretty cool. After 5 years of study, I graduated as a chiropractor and had practised in Australia and Auckland before Wellington. Through these experiences, I’ve seen diverse groups of people with a variety of health conditions.

The best part about this job is getting to meet everyone and seeing the positive effects the treatment can bring.

I look forward to meeting you!
