Is an adjustment safe?


Research has found that adjustments are remarkably safe. With no drugs or surgery involved, chiropractic care enjoys an excellent track record.

A thorough exam can identify the rare person for whom chiropractic care might be unsuited.

Compare the statistics. Adjustments are about 100 times safer than taking an over-the-counter pain reliever.

How many adjustments will I need?


The number of adjustments varies with each patient and their individual health goals.

Many patients sense some progress within a short period of intensive care.

Rehabilitation visits are less frequent as your spine stabilizes and you will be shown exercises to support your care.

In difficult cases, complete healing can take months or even years.

Healing takes time and everybody is different.

Do I have subluxations?


You can have subluxations and not even know it.

Like the early stages of tooth decay or disease, subluxations can be present before warning signs appear.

The results of a thorough examination can show the location and s everity of any subluxations you may have.

Can you adjust babies, is it safe?

Examining the spine of an infant is painless and easy.

The importance of a developing baby being free of nerve interference from subluxations cannot be understated.

Even infants that appear healthy may have subluxations due to the birth process.

Often the signs and symptoms may not arise for years.

All babies deserve the best chance at a healthy happy life.

As a matter or policy we check children for free.

Here is a lovely testimonial from a mum about her baby Taylor who was 6 days old when she had her first adjustment.
