WELCOME TO OUR HOMEPAGE
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:
Promote optimal nerve conduction
The health and functionality of your spine is essential to the wellbeing of your nervous system.

Family and Pensioner Rates

We believe that Chiropractic care should be available to enhance the health and lifestyle of as many members of our community as possible. We use recognised low force and gentle Chiropractic techniques that are suitable for all ages. We are always happy to answer your queries so please don’t hesitate to contact if you have any questions regarding your or a loved one’s health.
Frequently Asked Questions
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.
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.
