FAQ's

Chiropractic

How can a chiropractor help you?


Chiropractors are highly trained in diagnosing and treating neuromusculoskeletal complaints. They study for 5 years at university including a 1-year supervised internship before graduating. Chiropractic is widely recognised as one of the safest drug-free, non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal complaints.




What do chiropractors do?


Chiropractors help restore balance in your body and nervous system. A session with a Chiropractor typically includes a physical exam which can include measuring range of movement and strength, assessing posture and alignment as well as functional movement assessments. This allows the Chiropractor to identify health problems and diagnose what is going on within the whole system.




What is a chiropractic adjustment?


Chiropractic adjustment is a procedure in which our Chiropractors use their hands or a small instrument to apply a controlled, sudden force to a spinal joint. The goal of this procedure is to improve spinal motion and improve your body's physical function.




What to expect at your first visit?


On your initial visit, we will have some paperwork with further details of your health history. Our practitioners will conduct a physical examination, functional movement assessments as well as take some posture pictures to help form a diagnosis. Our practitioners can refer out for further MRI or ultrasound imaging if its deemed necessary. If it's appropriate our practitioner may provide treatment on the first session.




Do I need to bring anything to my first visit?


There is no need to bring anything to your first visit. If you have any previous imaging or reports, you may bring them along for the chiropractor to view.




Is Chiropractic safe?


Yes, chiropractic is safe and effective. Our chiropractors undergo 5 years of study at university to become qualified. In order to remain registered with the Chiropractic Board of Australia and AHPRA, chiropractors are required to keep up to date with current evidence and best-practice approaches. Each year they complete continued professional development to revise current research and techniques.
