What to Expect When You Visit Us



The first step is to assess how we can help you achieve your health goals. You will complete a comprehensive health history questionnaire, and then the Chiropractor will discuss this with you in detail to get the full picture of your current health status.



If it is safe to do so, the Chiropractor will perform a physical examination that will include: Posture and range of motion tests, Spinal and nervous system examination, and any necessary orthopaedic and neurological testing


All of our clinics except Stratford have on-site digital x-ray facilities. If it is clinically indicated

x-rays may be taken the time of your initial appointment. Use of x-rays allows Chiropractors to be more safe and more specific with regards to pathology and analysis.

Report of


Your Report of Findings visit will be scheduled at the next available appointment time. The Chiropractor will review and analyse the findings from the Initial Consultation, examination and x-rays (if taken) and will prepare a report specific to you. This report will contain a customised plan to assist you in achieving your health goals

At each regular visit your chiropractor will assess your spine and make adjustments to assist your body in restoring proper function.

Just like regular exercise sessions, each visit builds on the next to restore and strengthen your spine. Regular sessions support your health and helps to avoid relapses.


To reach these goals, a specific number of chiropractic visits will be recommended. For most types of lower back pain, a treatment recommendation of 1 to 3 chiropractic visits per week for 2 to 4 weeks will be prescribed, followed by a re-examination by the chiropractor.

Pregnancy & Post Natal

Many of the common symptoms experienced during pregnancy, especially back pain, headaches and heartburn, are related to the stress on your nervous system. Chiropractic is a way to restore function and reduce pain. Many of these symptoms will also continue through during post natal due to continuous lifting and twisting while caring for your new baby. 

Children & Babies

Providing them with the best start in life. Many issues seen in adults often begin in childhood. Chiropractic care assists in keeping the spine and nervous system balanced as children are often very active in sport or are spending many hours on devices that can have a negative effect on posture, and therefore health


Everyday life is filled with constant stresses and can impact on how well your body functions. Being inactive at a desk, sports, exposure to chemicals in our food and environment, along with mental and emotional stress are all examples of things that may be affecting our health. Chiropractic works with your body to help keep it functioning well and handle life's daily stressors.


Keeping active in both body and brain are important aspects of aging well. Chiropractic may help overcome or reduce the challenges of aging by slowing the decline in functional ability and reducing the risk associated with falls
