Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a referral to see a chiropractor?

No you don’t need a referral. Although many of our existing patients do refer their friends and family in for checkups. Simply call 9246 9558 to make an appointment.

Will I be adjusted on my first visit?

On your first visit your chiropractor will take your history and conduct a thorough examination. If any further investigation is required we may then require X-rays to be taken. Once the chiropractor has gone through this process they will do whatever they can to help you, after all that’s what we are here to do!

Do I need X-rays?

Depends on the individual case. Once your chiropractor has completed the examination they will discuss any further investigations such as X-rays. There are many situations where x-rays are not required.

Will it hurt?

Most patients experience simultaneous relief after adjustments otherwise they would not complete the series of adjustments needed to create more exciting changes.

How many times do I have to come back?
