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.

We have built strong relationships with health care providers throughout. 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.
