Frequently asked questions

  • How does chiropractic work?
    Chiropractic is based on the premise that the body is a self-regulating and self-healing organism. The nervous system comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves, controls and coordinates every organ, tissue, and cell in the body. When an interference occurs, the messages from the brain to the rest of the body can not flow. This is called subluxation and as a result the body can not express itself at 100%. The role of a chiropractor is to reduce or eliminate these subluxations allowing the body to heal itself.
  • What is a chiropractic adjustment?
    A chiropractic adjustment is the application of a specific force in a precise direction to a spinal joint that is fixated, “locked up”, or not moving as it should. This can help improve or restore motion to the joint, helping the spine to gradually regain more normal motion and function. More importantly, the adjustment releases the nerve interference so the brain messages to the organs, tissues and cells are restored. There are many ways to adjust the spine. Usually the chiropractor’s hands or a specially designed instrument delivers a brief and highly-accurate thrust. Some adjusting methods are quick, whereas others require a slow, constant or indirect pressure.
  • Who can benefit from chiropractic?
    Chiropractic is for EVERYONE. As long as you have spine and a nervous system, you can benefit from chiropractic! We care for people of all ages and all backgrounds - from newborns, to pregnant women, elderly, athletes and everyone in between. Our techniques however will be modified to adapt to each individual.
  • How long is a visit?
    Once the initial visit is complete and we have given you a detailed and personalised care plan, the subsequent visits or "regular adjustments" will be fairly quick. The adjustments are fast and extremely potent. You should be in and out of the office within 15 minutes which allows you to fit us in your busy schedule!
  • What can I expect after a chiropractic adjustment?
    Obviously, every person is different and the body response to an adjustment can vary significantly. However, for the most part, our patients report to be feeling more relaxed, somewhat more tired and thirsty.
  • How often should I see a chiropractor?
    The length of your chiropractic journey is something that you must decide for yourself and we will be with you along the way giving you all the information you need to make the right decision for you. The first two phases of care are designed to correct and then stabilise chronic problems that you may have. After that, we will recommend an ongoing care to maintain those changes and help you face your daily challenges with the best tools in hand. Your nervous system will always be in charge of controlling and coordinating the rest of your body, and we believe it is crucial to keep looking after it.
