Your Health Goals

  • Together, we will work through your goals, actions and your homework to deliver you results.
  • Your health is your responsibility. However together, we aim to transform your entire life, one adjustment at a time.
  • Chiropractic is a medium to long-term process that aims to get your body working and healing at optimal levels just the way nature intended.

Over 200,000 Australians visit their local Doctor of Chiropractic each week and enjoy the benefits of regular adjustments. Your chiropractic program is just the initial start of what should become a life changing experience for you.


Phases of Care

  1. Initially, we aim to stabilise your condition.
  2. Next, we move into the correction phase where your chiropractic adjustments work to correct the shape of your spine and prevent further degeneration from taking place.
  3. This is followed by maintenance care. There is no fixed timeframe in which each phase is completed. It depends entirely on how your body responds to the care and how you are healing. It also depends on the initial state of your spine and how long you waited before taking action.

What to Expect

Adjustments are amazing. However it’s combined effort that really produces results. Your adjustments go hand in hand with good posture and exercise. Regular exercise at least 2-3 times a week, together with a comprehensive stretching program and nourishing diet will be sure to see you succeed with chiropractic care.


The healing can last for days - that’s the secret. You are ‘reset’. It is quite common for patients to actually feel sleepy after an adjustment - this is the process of your body relaxing/resetting itself.


Warning Signs

With 20 years experience helping the community, I can see the warning signs when someone needs help. These are my top 6 signs someone needs chiropractic care and a health overhaul.

  1. Sleeping on your stomach
  2. Old reoccurring injuries
  3. People who sit all day at work and commute long distances
  4. If you are not exercising 2-3 times a week
  5. If you regularly take medication
  6. Pain

Your Home Work

Ice Therapy. If you suffer from back pain, use an ice pack. Ice works to numb the pain and sooth inflammation. Use the ice pack for 5 minutes at a time.

Posture. Be aware of your posture throughout the day. How do you stand? How do you sit? Remember to not slouch, lean, cross your legs or stand with your weight on one leg. Open your chest, tighten your abs and breath smoothly.
