How we started helping

About spine and posture care

When Spine and Posture Care opened in 2013 we noticed a growing trend of people who came in experiencing pain which was gradually getting worse over time.

Worse still, we saw people who would experience pain relief only for the problem to come back months or even only weeks later sometimes more intense than before.

In this time we have made it our goal to not only treat the symptoms you experience but find the underlying cause of your problem to help stop the pain and discomfort you feel from coming back.

Our story

I feel your pain.

I feel it from a place that’s close to home because it was one of the biggest motivators for me to become a chiropractor. I’ll tell you more about that in a moment.

Pain and discomfort are an unfortunate problem and chances are you’re reading this because you’re probably feeling one of them.

They’re the problems you get which don’t stop you from living your everyday life, but are starting to limit you from doing what you want.

The problems that cause the pesky thought in the back of your head saying “Is this going to cause my pain to come back or get

worse.”
At the end of the day it comes down to what your goal is and what you want. Do you want to:

  • Get rid of your pain
  • Improve your posture
  • Go back to playing with your children without worrying about that pain flaring up
  • Do you want to move better and feel better?
  • It’s all up to you. I’m here to help.

My mum went through the first 30 years of her life without a problem. The last 20 years have been a much bigger issue. Mum is a pharmacist; her job requires her to spend the day alternating between long periods of sitting to long periods of standing.

As a child I remember her coming home at the end of every day with a different problem. Lower back pain one day, neck pain the next and headaches in between. She felt helpless because she didn’t know what to do about it.

My name is Dr Mark El-Hayek. I’m the head chiropractor and owner of Spine and Posture Care graduating from Macquarie University with a Masters of Chiropractic and a Bachelor of Medical Science majoring in human anatomy, physiology and neurobiology.

If you experience that nagging neck pain, lower back pain or problem anywhere in your spine, I know what you’re going through and I’m here to help when you’re ready.
