Frequently Asked Questions

Do Chiropractic Treatments hurt?

All too often people think Chiropractors crack backs or push bones back into place, which sounds like it would hurt!!

We adjust, using a very specific high speed but low force impulse to release tension and restore movement. With some adjustments there is a release of a bubble of gas in the fluid of the joint – similar to that of the bubbles of gas that are released when you open a bottle of Champagne.

In fact we go out of our way to make sure the adjustment does not hurt, because hurting people would be bad for business!

Hоw muсh wіll іt cost?

Our fees are very competitive with those you can find elsewhere on the Gold Coast.

We understand that your time and your money are both important commodities, and we will do our best to respect both of these. Ultimately our recommendations for your care is based on your findings and our experience, and we have several payment options available to make things as easy for you as possible.

Dо wе X-Ray?

We have a full digital x-ray suite as part of the practice.

We only x-ray when there is a clinical indication that x-rays are necessary to form a conclusive diagnosis and rule out any potential problems that may affect your care, and your consent is always sought.

In everyday life 

  • Social interaction plays a critical role in our overall level of wellbeing, so during this time of “social distancing” we need to take advantage of the wonderful technology we have available to us. make phone calls, Skype and FaceTime to family and friends daily.
  • Keeping positive and having “Hope” plays an important role in reducing stress, whilst we understand this is an extraordinary event we must remember we have an incredible medical system here in Australia and the measures that have been imposed have managed to keep Australia in good shape.
  • Humor, watch comedies to help lift the mood.
  • Movement and exercise, as this is another way to boost you immune system. We have seen many online exercise classes since the gyms have closed but we can do many activities on our own likes squats, star jumps or even stepping up on our toes.
  • Diet with fresh fruit and vegetables. It is easy to resort to “comfort foods” alcohol and snacks which can create chemical stress in the body and reduce our immune defence.
  • Managing pain, as this can reduce sleep and create inflammatory changes in the body. This along with pain medication will also reduce your body’s natural defences.
