Frequently Asked Questions

  • Chiropractic treatment should not hurt. Most feel the benefits of treatment almost immediately, but some experience short term discomfort, or delayed onset soreness 1-2 days after, especially if their complaint is very acute and inflamed. This should soon pass as your body adapts to the changes that have been made. Your treatment will be tailored to provide you with the most comfortable experience possible.

Frequently asked questions about chiropractic care

WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC?

Chiropractic is based on the relationship between the spine and the nervous system, with one of the most basic ideas in chiropractic being that dysfunction in the spine, and its joints, can result in dysfunction in the nervous system. As the nervous system controls and coordinates all of the bodies systems, dysfunction within the spine can have wide ranging effects on your bodies health. Chiropractors are trained to identify these dysfunctions and treat them accordingly.

IS IT SAFE?

Yes, chiropractic treatment is safe when performed by a fully qualified, registered chiropractor. It is a drug free, surgery free, non invasive treatment of the spine and associated conditions. There have been many studies done showing chiropractic treatment to be much safer than many commonly used alternatives such as long term use of NSAID’s or surgery. Your chiropractor is trained to recognise conditions which may require referral elsewhere.
