What We Do

Chiropractic

For many people, this may be your first visit to a chiropractor. So please allow us to give you an outline of what to expect.

We ask that you dress comfortably for the consultation; this will make sure we can be as thorough as we can in our examination. If you have any current or prior exams such as CTs, MRIs, X-rays or other relevant test results, please bring them along to assist the Chiropractor in learning as much as they can regarding your condition.

Chiropractic Consultation and Examinations

Following the paperwork, you will meet with Greg to talk about the relevant details of your health. As a way of learning what may have contributed to your problem, we may ask questions regarding previous injuries, falls, postural habits, sports, repetitive stressors, etc.

Our goal is to help you find out the cause of the problem, if it’s something we feel we can help with we’ll continue with our examination, if its outside our expertise, we will let you know and find someone who can. Following our consultation, we will then begin our four (4) exams.

We are extensive in our initial exam to make sure we help you find the underlying cause of the problem which should take a total of 45 minutes.

  • Physical Examination
  • Structural Chiropractic Examination
  • Thermal reading Nervoscope analysis

Digital X-Ray Analysis (if necessary).

After your Exam

Following your first visit, Greg will review your consultation and the four examinations to review the source of your health problems. We understand that no two conditions are the same. As such, the chiropractor will review a specific program of correction that is customised to you.

Our staff will then give you a folder that includes your results, as well as some information about our office.

We have built strong relationships with health care providers throughout the Moree and the surrounding towns. If we find during the examination that this is not a chiropractic case, know you will be immediately referred to a health practitioner we feel best suits your condition.

Techniques Used

Gonstead

The Gonstead System of Chiropractic, represents arguably the “gold standard” in “hands on” spinal adjusting due to the lengthy training and specificity of analysis. The specific adjustments help return the spinal joints to their correct position and function resulting in proper nerve function and improved health.

Thompson

Thompson Terminal Point technique is a system of analysis and a special table that reduces the amount of energy needed to adjust your spine. A special weighing system is used to apply the corrective adjustments.

Activator

Pregnant patients and older patients with bone-weakening conditions like arthritis and osteoporosis particularly find comfort with the gentle nature of an Activator adjustment. Don’t like the popping or cracking that you may have heard? but still want results through precision and accuracy. The Activator Method uses a small, hand-held instrument called the Activator Adjusting Instrument to deliver a gentle adjustment to the spine to correct the source of the problem.

Physiotherapy

Rachel will provide a comprehensive assessment and treatment program that takes into account your current capacity, lifestyle, any sporting activities and how you want to live your life from now onwards.

What to Expect

At the initial treatment session, Rachel will take a detailed account of the problem, followed by a physical examination in order to make a clinical diagnosis.

Each physiotherapy treatment and injury recovery plan is specifically tailored to your individual needs – we explain to you the underlying cause of your condition so that you can take control of your own recovery program.

We pride ourselves in offering our patients the latest technology. To create your tailored exercise programs we use a brand new app called PhysiApp. PhysiApp lets you complete your prescribed exercise program by following crystal-clear, narrated exercise videos. PhysiApp is completely free to download from the App store and Google Play store or can be accessed via your browser. Built-in reminders help you to stay on track towards a better you!

Women's Health

  • Studies have revealed that 1 in 3 women are affected by urinary incontinence.

    Despite this fact, many women choose to put up with these problems for years due to the fear of embarrassment or accepting that there is nothing that can be done about it.  There are also a number of other women’s health conditions such as musculoskeletal pains through pregnancy that are also put to the side.

    The truth is that women’s health physiotherapy can improve the quality of women’s lives and can result in significant changes in people’s conditions. 

    Women’s health physiotherapy includes:

    • Incontinence
    • Pelvic organ prolapse
    • Sexual pain and dysfunction
    • TENS for pelvic floor muscle activation and hire
    • Pelvic floor vaginal assessment and treatment
    • Pregnancy related issues such as pelvic girdle pain, wrist pain and carpal tunnel
    • Exercise prescription, postural & lifestyle advice specific to pregnancy, the postnatal period and beyond
    • Advice regarding abdominal support belts, compression garments for vulval varicosities, belts and supports for back pain

Pregnancy Care

  • We understand that having a baby can be one of the most rewarding and challenging times in a person’s life.

    Greg and Rachel bring a wealth of knowledge in when it comes to the skeletal and muscular changes of the body during pregnancy.
