    This will help to determine the type and severity of your problem (diagnosis) and what we decide to be the best course of action from there (to begin treatment, x-rays, further referral).

    We will provide some treatment at this stage to aid relief, unless further investigation is required beforehand.

  • Follow Up Care and recommendations for future management

    Managing a problem back to recovery is often a process. Initially, adequate care may require appointments scheduled at a higher frequency. As recovery progresses, care should involve less frequent appointments with proactive advice for you to continue with.

    At any stage your care will be discussed with you with a rationale as to “why”.  Your care provider will always seek your agreement before going forward with recommendations. It is always your choice and we will provide you with advice and information to help you stay informed.

  • How Long Will Each Appointment Last?

    Allow approximately 30 minutes for the first two appointments to cover history, examination and treatment. Appointments thereafter are not necessarily timed but allow for a 15 minute window. Time will depend on what management is necessary for you and how you are progressing with your care.

  • How Much Will it Cost?

    Your initial appointment will go for 30 minutes. The initial consultation fee (including treatment) will incur a fee of $110.

  • What should I wear to my appointments?

    Your chiropractors will be able to adapt to almost anything! Whether you’ve come straight from work, the gym, or home we will adapt to make sure that you are comfortable. We have modesty towels when required. If you are comfortable, we are comfortable.

    That said, if time permits, many patients will change into comfortable, unrestrictive clothing before their appointment.

  • Will It Hurt?

    Areas that are already sore can be tender. Your chiropractor will work within your tolerance and back off if an area is too sore. Chiropractic adjustments aren’t, by design, painful.
