WELCOME TO OUR HOMEPAGE

Our Services

The chiropractic profession is based on the science that all cells, tissues, muscles and organs within the body are supplied by the same nervous system. By taking care of your spine (which is the central column for nerve distribution), you are able to better look after your nervous system, and therefore your body, in the long run. Doctors of Chiropractic study at university for 5-6 years, learning how to detect and correct disturbances within the nervous system. Through the correction of such disturbances, your body is able to heal properly and function at its optimal potential.

We achieve this through a range of services that:

Frequently Asked Questions
About Chiropractic


We use gentle specific manipulations (that we call adjustments) to relieve pain and restore joint function. Sometimes we recommend lifestyle changes, exercise and nutrition supplements to support your treatment and enhance the healing response in your body.
Spinal joints need to move properly to allow the brain to perceive how the body is working. Good spinal function is important for mobility, strength and maintaining balance. If the spine doesn’t move well, this could crate pain, weakness or clumsiness. Chiropractors use gentle manipulations (adjustments) to restore optimal spinal joint function to relieve pain and maximise strength and balance in the body.
Each person requires a specific plan to optimise the restoration of spinal function. This varies from person to person according to their age, history of trauma, length of time the injury has been there for, general fitness, pre-existing conditions, whether you smoke or are overweight, your bodies healing rate, etc.

As a general rule, after 6-12 visits, your chiropractor will have a good idea of how well you are responding to chiropractic care. If there is no change to pain levels or function, then your chiropractor will discuss other options with you and refer you for appropriate assessment by other healthcare professionals or a second opinion.
A younger, healthy spine may require only a few visits to relieve pain and improve function whilst an older, arthritic spine would probably need more care to achieve this.

To keep the spine functioning optimally, to stay strong and well balanced, some people may benefit from ongoing care to maintain full function.

Whether your goal is simply pain relief of to have an optimally functioning spine and body, your chiropractor can make recommendations to help you achieve your health goals.

Most people do not require a doctor’s referral to make an appointment to see a chiropractor. Some people may be eligible to claim chiropractic care through Medicare. They do require a referral from their doctor under The Enhanced Primary Care Plan. Some Department of Veterans Affairs Card holders may be eligible to claim Chiropractic care but require a referral from their GP.

All chiropractors in Australia have to have a minimum level of education to be registered with AHPRA (the government body responsible for regulation of all health care professionals). Chiropractors are university trained and are required to complete ongoing education every year to maintain their registration with AHPRA.

A chiropractic degree is currently a 5 year university Bachelor and Masters of Chiropractic degree.

Each year, Cheyne, Jolene and Mark participate in ongoing education at their own time and expense to ensure thay are up to date on current knowledge and techniques in the chiropractic field.

Yes, chiropractic is very safe for children and babies, and is rarely associated with adverse events which would be muscle soreness for short periods after the adjustment which resolves itself without further intervention.

For children and babies to develop and achieve developmental milestones appropriately, they need to have correct movement patterns in their spinal joints. Appropriate chiropractic technique modified to suit small bones help to ensure children and babies spinal joints function (move) optimally which allows them to develop and achieve their individual optimal potential. They may need to do exercises as part of their home care to enhance their development.
Chiropractic care can help to alleviate pain and maximise normal function of the spine during pregnancy. The changes a woman’s body goes through during pregnancy and labour can result in pain and changes in the way the body copes with balance and strength. By maintaining/restoring spinal and pelvic girdle function, chiropractic adjustments/manipulations can help to maintain a mother-to-be’s health and comfort. Needless to say, adjustments/manipulations during pregnancy are adapted to suit the changing mother’s body, and are not unduly uncomfortable for mum or baby.
