What is chiropractic?

Chiropractic treatment can help to diagnose and treat problems with joints and muscles and their effects on your health.

While chiropractors are best known for treating back pain, they are also able to provide support for many other types of pain management and injuries. They can also provide advice on exercise, diet, lifestyle and injury prevention.

People of all ages can benefit from what chiropractic has to offer and we see patients from a few days old to those who are in their nineties

What can I expect on my first visit?

During your first appointment we will take a detailed medical history from you, as well as performing a physical examination which includes a general medical check, for example, taking your blood pressure. Any problematic areas you have will be assessed thoroughly.

This first appointment can take up to two hours to allow us to fully evaluate your condition in order to recommend and discuss a treatment plan with you. We do not treat patients on their first visit (except in exceptional circumstances) but will be able book you in to begin your treatment plan at this time.

What next?

If you are worried about your issue recurring and would like to work towards strengthening muscles and joints or increasing flexibility and range of movement then rehabilitation may be an option for you.

Rehabilitation or 'rehab' is a course of exercise therapy that is built around your specific needs and ability. This will be discussed during your treatment depending on your requirements.

Rehab takes place in our world-class Rehabilitation and Exercise Centre situated within our Clinic building.
