What types of problems does chiropractic help?

Chiropractic is best known for helping with low back pain, neck pain and headaches. However most clients are surprised to find that chiropractors also achieve great success with a huge range of other problems affecting the body.

The reason is that chiropractic addresses the health of the whole person.

Remember, your nervous system keeps you healthy – so by keeping your nervous system free from interference, you will have better overall health.

If you are experiencing symptoms including shoulder pain, neck pain, headaches or sporting injuries - we have the expertise to treat you. If you’re unsure whether chiropractic is right for you, get in touch with your symptoms/issues and we’ll let you know.

Do I need a referral?

No – chiropractors are licenced primary health care professionals who examine, diagnose and care for patients directly without any referral.

Will my private health insurance cover chiropractic care and your other treatments?

Typically yes – most health plans cover chiropractic and remedial massage to a certain annual maximum. Please contact us if you are unsure and we can check with your fund.

How many adjustments will I need?

The number of adjustments varies with each patient and their individual health goals. Many patients sense progress within a week or two of frequent visits. Visits become less frequent as your spine stabilises.

How long before I feel better?

This varies from person to person, and many factors affect the healing process. How long have you had your problem? Are you keeping your appointments? Are you getting the proper rest, exercise and nutrition? Do you smoke? Most patients sense enough progress within a short period of time to carry out the chiropractor’s recommendations.

Is chiropractic care safe?

While all forms of care carry some risk, chiropractic care has been shown repeatedly by research to be one of the safest and most effective forms of health care. By avoiding drugs and surgery, chiropractic care enjoys an excellent track record. A recent study found chiropractic adjustments are about 100 times safer than taking an anti-inflammatory drug.

Can I have chiropractic care after back surgery?

Yes – your chiropractor will avoid the surgically modified areas of your spine. Surgery can cause instability above or below the affected level. These areas will be the focus of your chiropractic care.

Can patients with osteoporosis receive chiropractic care?

Yes – your chiropractor always considers the special circumstances of each patient and selects methods of care suitable for them.

These visits help to detect and resolve new problems before they become serious. Our job is to offer the very best care and your job is to decide how much of it you want.
