Chiropractic care is based on the knowledge that your body is self healing and self regulating. When spinal motion is altered, this can interfere with the flow of information from your brain to your body and vice versa. Chiropractors use spinal adjustments to restore normal function to the spine and pelvis, thus allowing the brain and body to communicate with each other more efficiently. When your body is in this stress free state, it is able to regulate and heal itself more easily.
During your first visit, we will take a detailed health history so we can gain a full insight into your lifestyle and any health challenges you may have. Physical assessment includes posture and computerised gait analysis, along with appropriate near-orthopoedic tests to determine the cause of your problems. It is sometimes necessary to refer for X-rays to complete our physical assessment.
A second visit is scheduled within 48 hours to discuss our findings, along with your health concerns and your care plan will be outlined for you. If you are happy to proceed, your first session will take place then.

A spinal check up could be one of the most important check ups your child receives. In addition to the stress of childbirth, the constant jumping, falling, running and bumping of a normal childhood can often cause spinal or pelvic misalignments. These can cause various symptoms if left uncorrected.
For over a hundred years chiropractors have observed dramatic responses from babies and children after correcting their spinal misalignments. With a healthy and well moving spine and pelvis a child’s body can deal with sore throats, ear infections and fever (amongst other childhood ailments) more efficiently as the body is better able to regulate and repair itself. This strengthens your child’s immune system making them more resistant to disease, resulting in less need for medication. Nothing is more important than the health and wellbeing of your child, the earlier they receive a chiropractic check up the better!
"Chiropractic care for my child? Why? His back doesn’t hurt."
Parents who often appreciate the importance of checkups for their child’s teeth, hearing, eyes, ears, nose and throat draw a blank when it comes to the spine.
A spinal checkup could be one of the most important of your child’s life! Why? In addition to the stress of childbirth, the constant jumping, falling, running and bumping of a normal childhood often cause vertebral subluxations, with various health consequences if uncorrected.
For over a hundred years chiropractors have observed often dramatic responses from some infants after a chiropractic spinal adjustment. Today we find more parents bringing their children to chiropractors for spinal checkups. With a healthy spinal column, a child’s body can better deal with the sore throats, ear infections, stomachaches, fevers, measles, mumps and the 101 other problems that often make up young life.
Keeping your child’s spine free from vertebral subluxations will help stengthen your child’s natural defenses against disease. This will help you avoid drugs and their side effects. Why not give your child the great advantage of this safer, more natural, non-drug form of health care.

These exercises become an integral part of getting well and staying well.
The food you eat can help or hinder your progress and it can be directly linked to inflammation levels within your joints and elsewhere. During your initial consultation your chiropractor will determine if you need to make changes to your diet. Supplementation will be advised if required.
