It is because of this; we are so highly regarded in our community for providing quality results care that works for EVERY BODY.
We believe everyone can live a healthy life. It just takes the right people to ‘adjust your thinking’
So, what is chiropractic care about?
Health is based on the body’s ability to communicate. Chiropractic care helps restore our brain-body communication, allowing our bodies to feel and function at their best. Our brain sends signals down to every cell in our body giving it the proper instruction to carry out the desired function. As we accumulate stress in our daily lives, it tends to disrupt the way our body communicates. Many of us have often felt those areas of stress or tension in our body which are sometimes experienced as a pain or discomfort.
Our Chiropractor’s Dr Rod Le Coz and Dr Marti Harris are specialists in the body’s movement system – the complex interaction of nervous system, muscular system, and skeletal system. We look at how your body functions and how your spine impacts your health when there is misalignment. Abnormal functions in the body can include things like:
- Neck pain & stiffness
- Back pain
- Headaches / migraines
- Trouble sleeping
- Digestive problems
- Decreased energy / fatigue
- Numbness or tingling in arms, hands or legs
- Poor posture
Chiropractic care focuses on improving the health and function of your spine, helping your nervous system to function at its optimum. Your nervous system controls everything from the way your body moves, your thoughts and the function of all your organs. A chiropractic adjustment, which is not always a cracking or popping sound, restores proper biomechanical function to areas of joint dysfunction allowing the nervous system to communicate efficiently and your body functioning at its best.
What to expect on your first visit
Everyday living takes its toll on your body. Poor posture, accidents, injuries, stress, and a sedentary lifestyle are all culprits that damage your spine and nerves. Our tailored approach includes the following types of chiropractic care: relief, corrective, maintenance, and wellness.
As a new client to our practice our chiropractors will take you through a simple 3 step process to determine your type of care and care plan required to get you back to feeling your best.
The first step is meeting with one of our highly trained Practitioners to review your medical history, the reason that brought you to the consultation and to discuss your health objectives and/or concerns.
Your Practitioner will complete an extensive spinal, postural, orthopaedic and neurological examination with all relevant data collected so they can assess and look at a suitable plan of care to assist with your natural body restoration. X-rays may be required and if so, we generally take these on site with majority of the fee bulked billed by Medicare.
After reviewing and interpreting all results, your Practitioner will discuss your examination outcomes and your personalised care plan. They may also recommend suitable supplements for you to take from our Metagenics range to help optimise your health or help your body to heal.
