Get a 2nd Opinion
Have you been diagnosed with a foot,
ankle, knee or hip disorder? Are you
disappointed with the progress of your
rehabilitation? Lower limb issues are often
caused or exacerbated by a disturbance in
the lower spine.
Seek a second opinion from experts
in lumbar spine care. At Canberra
Chiropractic we pride ourselves
on a thorough history and extensive
examination before we commence
treatment. We will evaluate your area of
chief complaint; however we will always
look for a connection with the spine.
Workers compensation, DVA and transport
accident cases may need a medical referral.
You have the right to seek treatment from
the registered health care provider of your
choice. Inform your GP or Specialist that
you wish to see a chiropractor. It is your
body... your choice. Call 62473388 or
Parking on nature strips not on
The Government should continue to
fine people for parking on nature
strips, despite the objections of
some residents ( Stay off the grass
rule ridiculous , The Chronicle,
Nature strips contribute to our
streetscapes with vegetation that
provides shade and absorbs carbon
dioxide, and whose respiration
cools our city.
They are water-permeable areas
that reduce stormwater runoff and
recharge our aquifers.
They are transport routes for
pedestrians and cyclists of all ages,
for people on mobility scooters,
for parents pushing baby carriages,
for people walking to and from bus
stops and for people walking to
and from cars. On streets with
insufficient on-street parking, we
could permit residents to park on
paved parking spaces that are
located to permit access to water,
gas, telecommunications and
drainage service and to permit the
free flow of foot traffic.
But if parking on nature strips
leaves on-road parking spaces
vacant it effectively widens the
road, increases the time it takes to
cross the road, and encourages
higher road speeds.
Fines are justified to discourage
people from parking on unpaved
nature strips where they compact
soil, increase stormwater flow,
reduce ground water, stress
vegetation and contribute to the
conversion of grass to dirt and mud.
Larger fines are justified to
discourage inconsiderate parking
that forces pedestrians to detour or
doesn t leave space for pedestrians
to wait next to the kerb before
crossing the road.
Even higher fines are justified to
discourage parking across footpaths
or, where there are no footpaths,
from completely blocking nature
strips and forcing pedestrians onto

Red Hill is a nature reserve with
dogs on leash only.
Almost daily while walking on
Red Hill, I ask dog owners to put
their dogs on leash, often with a
Dogs harass kangaroos and other
animals in the nature reserve.
Because many dog owners do not
act responsibly, perhaps no dogs
should be allowed in nature
