What to Expect
Modern chiropractors don't just realign your spine or put bones back in place (bones don't “go” anywhere to begin with!).
We are trained extensively in diagnosis and draw on a wide range of techniques to suit the condition and the patient.
We are team players! which means we encourage collaboration with other health care providers INCLUDING your GP, specialists, physio's,...(etc.).
We are a true advocate for you, the patient - and work closely with you to achieve your goals quickly.
We have a multifaceted approach to chiropractic care. Consultations will consist of a thorough history and exam including orthopaedic and neurological tests as well as assessment of the joints of the spine and extremities, and the muscles and movement patterns surrounding those joints. Treatment modalities include gentle manual chiropractic adjustments (manipulation), blocking and activator techniques, soft tissue releases and muscle activation techniques. Emphasis is also placed on the active component of care such as exercise prescription and lifestyle advice to maintain better function and maximise the benefits of treatment.
Safety is always our first priority, please be assured that if we do not think that we can help you, or if our examination reveals any additional concerns, we will refer you appropriately and liaise with your general practitioner on your behalf.
