Your First Visit

The goal is to get you as least dependant on your chiropractic care as soon as reasonably possible, so that you can start taking control of your wellbeing again.


“At the end of the day”, it's about RESULTS!

Teaching the body to work differently, is much the same as learning a new skill such as juggling, tennis, piano and so on. The more often we practice, the faster our brain and body can reprogram the new movement patterns. A beginner piano player wouldn’t get very far having one lesson a month or fortnight!


  • Takes around 45 minutes

  • The goal is to figure out what’s wrong,

  • and then decide if we can help you or not.

Please arrive a few minutes early for paperwork.



  • Detailed history of the main/other issues.

  • Comprehensive physical examination

  • Explanation of what the problem is (diagnosis)

  • Discussion regarding, proposed treatment/other options, alternatives, risks/concerns, and any questions you have.

  • Once you consent to proceed, it's usually possible to start immediately.

  • There may be circumstances where more information is required before commencing.

    • We'll let you know if that's the case


Note that X-rays are not mandatory before treatment.



1. Undo the most recent damage first

  • Typically takes about 4-6 weeks (though can be quicker, or much slower).

  • Children/infants/babies generally respond much quicker

  • Some damage isn’t reversible, but at this stage we focus on what can be undone.


2. Begin the process of cleaning up the longer-term, bigger picture.

  • Involves less frequent visits,

  • Involves you becoming the bigger part of the solution by addressing factors such as diet, exercise, and work posture.

  • Allows you to “raise the bar” and get your wellbeing up to a higher standard.’re interested! 


  • Depends on which stage of care you are at.

  • Initially, a higher visit frequency is generally necessary, which then tapers off over time.

  • Whilst it would be nice if spinal problems could be corrected in a visit or two, it simply is not the case.
