“Over 300,000 Australians visit a chiropractor every week. Chiropractors play an important role in the spinal healthcare of everyday Australians by using a variety of non-surgical techniques, such as specific spinal adjustments, manual therapy and low-force intervention. Chiropractors offer a drug-free, hands-on approach to spinal healthcare.”

What to expect on your first visit.

On your initial consultation you will meet with one of our highly skilled and caring Chiropractors to discuss your health concerns and health history. A thorough evaluation will then be done of your spine, nervous system and posture. Your specific condition may require us to take spinal x-rays to get a full diagnostic assessment of your spine. X-rays also help our Chiropractors rule out any other serious conditions and will assist them in developing the most effective recommendations for you. This will be discussed with you during the first visit if the Chiropractor finds that it is necessary for the best management of your spinal health..
