How many adjustments will I need?

This varies from person to person. Each patient is individually assessed and a tailored management plan is presented depending on your diagnosis and health goals. Some patients require an initial phase of care over a prescribed amount of weeks, followed by our rehabilitation care and exercise program and then maintenance care, whereas others may only require a short course of chiropractic adjustments.

Does it hurt to get adjusted?

An adjustment is not intended to be painful. In some cases, mild soreness can occur in the adjusted area. This is typically a normal part of the healing process and may occur in the adjusted area that has been restricted for an extended period of time, due to it now moving better.

Do I need x-rays?

During your examination your Chiropractor will determine if x-rays are required before chiropractic care has commenced. If you have previous x-rays of your spine it would be of great benefit to bring them in with you as this may mean additional x-rays are not needed.
