  • Can chiropractic help me?
    Chiropractic can help a range of conditions, please see our “what we treat” section to see if any of those conditions are what you’re suffering with. Alternatively, you can call or email us with your problem and we’ll let you know if we can help.
  • How long will it take to get better?
    That depends on what the cause is and how your body responds to treatment. If you’ve had the problem a long time it can often take a bit longer as well. Typically, we recommend an initial 4-6 treatments to get pain levels down and start everything functioning better. If a patient doesn’t respond we will then often refer back to their GP or request imaging. However, most patients respond to treatment and after the initial phase of treatment we recommend 1-3 monthly check-ups – just like with your dentist, so that we can keep your joints healthy, prevent future problems and keep you out of pain. The frequency always depends on how much your lifestyle affects your condition.
  • What’s the difference between a Chiropractor and Physiotherapist?
    The main difference is our philosophy, we look at the nervous system and how it’s influencing the body as a whole whereas a physio will often focus on the muscles around the area of complaint. Chiropractors also train for 4-5 years and gain a ‘Doctor of Chiropractic’, we learn how to find any misalignments within the body and correct them.
  • What’s the cracking sound?
    The cracking sound is just nitrogen gas bubbles being released from the joint, it’s often associated with Chiropractic adjustments as we will move a segment in a specific direction which often results in a small gas bubble being released and ‘popped’ from that joint. It’s painless and often a good indication that the correct segment has moved where we want.
  • Does it hurt?
    Chiropractic as a whole does not hurt, there is sometimes some tenderness during treatment as we work on ‘knots’ which have built up within muscles. We’re always careful with patients and in constant communication with them so if anything does ever hurt too much we will ease off or stop.
  • How often should I come for treatment?
    During the initial phase of treatment when people are in pain we will recommend a course of treatment, often 1-2 times a week until the majority of the issue is resolved and then we will taper treatments off. Once the issue is resolved, we always recommend some maintenance care every 1-3 months depending on your lifestyle so we can address any issues before they get out of control.
