Frequently Asked Questions


Why do I need to come back for “maintenance care”?

Because of the lifestyles that modern living demands on us all, it is likely that we will continue doing jobs, sports and work around the home that will continue to place stress on the area of involvement that caused the problem in the first place; maintenance treatment acts as a preventive measure and can help halt symptoms from reoccurring. Others rely on chiropractic to help manage episodes for chronic conditions.

Does it hurt?

For the majority, chiropractic care is painless, and can be quite pleasant to receive; Occasionally though, adjustments may cause an inflammatory reaction and this can make your symptoms feel worse for a while, but the discomfort should settle within 48 hours and you should notice improvement.


What’s the difference between an Osteopath and a Chiropractor?

Traditionally, chiropractors use a more direct approach on the joint with rapid thrusts; treatment concentrates on correct functioning of the nervous system to improve the overall health of the body; Osteopaths traditionally have slower, indirect leverage techniques and in the past have taken circulation into account when assessing people.
