Our patients and their families choose our office because they want a natural approach to better health.
If this is your first visit to our website, we would like to welcome you and thank you for considering us to care for your health. Our aim is to make your visits as relaxed and rewarding as possible.
Chiropractic is based on the knowledge that tension, misalignment or altered function of our spine (subluxations) can interfere with the flow of information and energy along your nerves and may dramatically affect the function of your body in many different ways.
Doctors of Chiropractic focus on improving the function of your spine, which helps to free the flow of information throughout your nervous system. This helps your body to better coordinate its functions, adapt to stress and heal itself. With Chiropractic many people naturally find relief from aches, pains and a huge range of symptoms from various conditions, as well as improved flexibility and general health.
Subluxations are interferences to the nervous system due to altered spinal motion and tension of the spinal cord altering the flow of information and energy. The causes of subluxations can be physical (lifting, bending, sitting etc), chemical (environmental toxins, food additives etc) or emotional (stress, depression, anxiety). We correct subluxations with gentle Adjustments that restore motion, remove tension from muscles and any interference to your nervous system.
We believe that subluxations can impact seriously on a person’s health and their ability to heal, regenerate and live their life to their full potential.
We believe that people should enjoy optimal health and wellness – for a life time. We also believe that prevention of disease and ill-health is less costly, less painful and more enjoyable for all concerned. Our aim is to provide the finest health care to you and your family. We want our patients to be inspired about their health so they can make informed choices to increase their optimal health potential.
Your First Appointment:
Your First Appointment:
It’s really important to us to understand your health thoroughly. On the first visit we will take your case history, perform a thorough spinal, muscular and neurological examination and relevant orthopaedic testing. This will help us determine whether Chiropractic can help you. If required, spinal X-rays may be requested. Cranial (bones of the skull), and organ reflex assessment may also be done within this visit.
Your second Appointment:
This visit involves a discussion about your X-ray, your spinal assessment results, how Chiropractic works and recommendations for your health care. Once we have answered all your questions we will be able to perform your first Chiropractic adjustment.
Three Types of Care
There are three types of care that we will discuss with you. Initial intensive care is aimed at restoring function of your nerves, increasing flexibility and decreasing obvious symptoms. Following this is Corrective care, which stabilises the spine further by strengthening ligaments and muscles. Now your healthy spine and nervous system promotes further healing and improved function of the body in general. Once you have achieved this goal, you can commence Wellness care. This involves regular check-ups to maintain spinal alignment, minimise degeneration and maximum health and wellness.
Kids in the Practice...
Yes! We are a paediatric trained practice. We encourage our adult patients to have their children under regular Chiropractic care. This helps straighten out all those physical, chemical or emotional stresses as they occur. It’s the healthier choice!
Our charges are in line with those recommended by the Chiropractors Association of Australia. For your convenience we have CREDIT/ EFTPOS card facilities.
We also have family rates when 3 or more members of the same family visit on the same day.
