Frequently Asked Questions


How do I know if chiropractic care can help?

If you are not sure whether we can help, please contact us to speak to one of our chiropractors. If you would prefer to speak face-to-face just let us know - we hold free 15 minute consultations to discuss any concerns you may have. We generally deal with "musculo-skeletal" issues, so if your issue does not fall into this catagory we can help to guide you toward what is the suitable course of action for your pain.


How long will my appointment take?

Your first visit will take approximately 1 hour. See the What to Expect section of our website for more details. Follow up appointments then last up to 30 minutes.


Where can I park?

There is no parking available at the Churchill Way clinic, however it is very close to a vast number of local car parks, bus routes and Queen Street station is 2 minutes away.

Do I need to bring anything with me?

It would be very helpful if you could bring any medication prescriptions you are currently taking, as well as any previous X-rays, MRI or CT images/reports you've had that are relevant to your area of complaint.

Although gowns are provided, many patients like to bring shorts (above the knee) as well as a vest or camisole top.


How long will it take to get better?

Your recovery depends on many different factors such as the type of problem, how long you've had it, age and activity levels. During your initial appointment we will discuss your individual condition, and devise a treatment plan tailor-made for you. We will also continually reassess your condition at the start of each visit. A rough estimate of 6-12 treatments is typical for simple lower back pain.


Do I need to contact my GP?

No. Chiropractic is a primary healthcare profession, which means that you can get an appointment with a chiropractor by contacting the clinic directly. A referral is not required.


Is chiropractic covered by private health insurance?

Most health insurance companies do cover chiropractic, however it is best to check with your provider before you visit us. If you are covered we often require an authorisation code on the first visit.


If you have any more questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
