We work to get you out of pain quickly, to correct underlying causes and to help prevent problems recurring. Our chiropractors take the opportunity to really know you and work with you to achieve your health goals, be it getting out of pain, improving mobility, or improving ability to take on new levels of fitness and improving your general wellbeing.
Before your first chiropractic consultation, you will be emailed a detailed history form that provides background information about your health concerns and medical history which allows us to gain an accurate overview of all relevant personal, lifestyle and health history.
Please fill this form out before you come. The initial visit typically lasts about 45 minutes so please arrive 10 minutes before your appointment time to ensure you are ready.
The Chiropractic Exam
At your initial consultation we will listen and discuss your symptoms and health concerns in a confidential environment. A thorough neurological, spinal & orthopaedic assessment will allow us to determine the cause of the problem. If it is deemed necessary you may be referred for an x-ray.
We will then discuss any findings with you and how we can help you in reaching your health goals. If we feel we can’t help or if you need further tests we will also let you know. If you are happy with the options we provide you, we will typically start treatment on the first visit.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will I need X-Rays?
This will be determined after a full history and physical examination. If required we will refer you to x-ray facilities nearby or of your choice. X-rays are largely covered by Medicare rebates. Children will not require x-rays in most cases unless they show significant trauma or postural deviations. Please bring previous x-rays or scans to your first appointment so we can review them.
Does it hurt?
Chiropractic treatment should not cause pain. Your chiropractor will work within your pain tolerance adapting techniques to suit your age, build and history. Sometimes you may experience temporary tenderness after your first few adjustments (much like you have done a work out at the gym) as your body adapts to its new alignment. Please contact us if you have any concern.
