Get the most out of life by regaining and retaining your spinal health
True good health isn’t just pain relief. It’s living well and maximising your potential. We are here to inform, motivate and support you with modern, drug-free chiropractic care. With your goals in mind, we offer pain relief, corrective and wellness care options for your whole family.
Chiropractic can be a part of your ongoing health care plan.
What to expect
On your first visit, to find out if we can help you, we ask questions about your current health situation to assess whether chiropractic care is for you. If we believe we can help we will conduct a thorough biomechanical, orthopaedic and neurological examination, explaining each process in detail. This visit usually takes around 45 minutes.
As we refer many patients for scans such as X-rays (very rarely for children), CT or MRI, or other tests, care usually starts on the second visit, which takes about 30 minutes. In a way that is easy to understand we’ll discuss your test results, our own our findings, what we can do to help, and how long it may take. We’ll also give you information to review at home.
Regular follow-up visits take about 10 minutes and involve repeating some of the tests to monitor your progress and provide feedback. The spinal adjustments are gentle with specific movements, performed differently depending on your age and type of spinal problem. Other techniques may include extremity adjusting, muscle techniques or advice.
