A Chiropractor is a registered health practitioner who diagnoses, treats and prevent mechanical disorders of the musculo skeletal system and the effects of theses disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health.
Be prepared to provide your previous medical or surgical history. If you have them and if they are relevant bring relevant scans/x-rays, and a list of medications.
The number of treatments will vary depending on the problem and individual. After a thorough assessment, the Chiropractor will discuss their treatment plan for the rehabilitation process.
You can get in touch by phone 07 3133 4199 or use the form under the contact page. Alternatively use the quick and easy online booking page, which is the method we prefer.
No, there is no need to get a referral by a doctor. Chiropractors form their own diagnosis and individual treatment plan.
YES! Chiropractors are trained in special techniques for adjusting pregnant women.
Sometimes adjustments can produce a sound. The “popping” sound or audible release is the result of gas shifting in the joint; similar to the noise created by “cracking” your knuckles. This sound is painless and causes no harm.
In most cases you can have subluxations and not even know it. Just like the early stages of tooth decay, subluxations can be present long before any symptoms become apparent. Only chiropractors have the training in the detection and correction of subluxations.
In order to properly diagnose a patient’s condition, x-rays are commonly taken. These x-rays are used to check vertebral alignment, disc degeneration, proper curvature, scoliosis, and other serious pathology. Our modern x-ray facilities utilize the latest technology to limit patient exposure, the amount of radiation used is far outweighed by the useful information gained by actually seeing the patient's spine.
Not at all, you decide how much or how little Chiropractic care you want. However, we at Yes Chiropractic recommend getting your spine checked for Subluxations periodically throughout your lifetime, because it is healthy for you to do so. Patients under long-term chiropractic care report many benefits for doing so.
A Chiropractic adjustment applies a specific force to the bones that are out of proper alignment or not moving properly (subluxated). There are many different ways to adjust these subluxated vertebrae.
Each patient’s care is tailored to suit his or her age, condition, body type and health goals. The purpose of the adjustments is to remove any interference to the nervous system, which improves spinal function and overall health. Adjustments are safe for all ages and are completely natural.
No, it is actually the opposite. Joints that do not move properly or that do not move enough may cause arthritis. Chiropractic adjustments help restore normal motion to the joints.
Yes. Chiropractic has an excellent safety record. A New Zealand government study found that adjustments are “remarkably safe”.
