Is chiropractic care safe?
Chiropractic is recognised as one of the safest drug-free, non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal complaints such as back pan, neck pain and cervicogenic headaches.
Every therapy has risks but you’ll be suitably assessed prior to receiving treatment
What ages could benefit from treatment?
People of all ages may benefit from chiropractic. If you have a spine then we can help you take care of it.
We love caring for families in our clinic.
Will the treatment hurt?
Absolutely not. Our treatments are gentle and are tailored to the needs of each individual. All our practitioners are trained in multiple techniques that give us a wide range of options when it comes to creating a custom care plan for you.
How often will I need treatment?
This obviously varies depending on your own unique needs and state of health. The first step is to have a consultation to determine the starting point.
Will I need to keep coming back?
The reality is that life creates constant stresses on our body, from sitting in front of a computer to staring down at a mobile phone…so some form of regular tune up can really help.
However how long you choose to benefit from care is always up to you.
Will my treatment be covered by my private health fund? Can I claim on the spot?
Our treatment is covered by all private health funds and you can claim your rebate directly with the health fund.
Our fees are clearly laid out for you upfront and there are no suprises. We keep our feel inline with the market expectation.
Most people feel better within a few treatments but depends on the complexity of your case.
Absolutely. Keeping our clients out of pain is what we love the most!
An adjustment is the chiropractic term for realignment of a dysfunctional joint. The joint may be spinal or anywhere else in the body. The purpose of an adjustment is to restore normal joint motion and mechanics, but more importantly to restore normal neurological function.
Research is increasingly indicating that the major effect of an adjustment occurs in the brain.
This adjustment may be performed by hand. There are many ways to create an adjustment, including gentle low force techniques.
The cracking sound that is sometimes heard during an adjustment is simply gas being released inside the joint as the joint capsule stretches. It is most definitely not bones cracking!
The easiest way to think of this is to imagine a suction cup stuck on a pane of glass. If you pull the suction cup off there will be a popping noise as the two surfaces separate. This is basically what happens in an adjustment as the joint surfaces separate.
For those who simply can’t tolerate even the thought of ‘cracking’, there are many ways to achieve an adjustment without any cracking whatsoever.
This is obviously dependent on which chiropractor and which physiotherapist you are talking about, as there are many different techniques in each profession. However, the difference is that physios are generally focused on your muscles, while chiropractors are generally focused on your nerves.
Since the nerves control and coordinate all aspects of muscular function (as well as everything else in your body) we think this just makes good sense!
