Our broad range of techniques allows us to employ unique therapies for each client. We can provide care for any age & by not being limited to chiropractic techniques alone we can employ a variety of approaches to treat the same condition. Thus finding the most efficient combination that suits you as an individual. We use long consultation times; allow 1 hour for your initial consult which usually includes therapy & 30 minutes thereafter. X-rays are not required unless diagnostically indicated.
Our philosophy is to find the true cause of your pain & through a variety of techniques & approaches, attempt to ‘fix’ it. We are not satisfied with pain relief alone, we are not satisfied with you becoming reliant on us for relief, we are satisfied when we free you from ‘passive’ therapy & give you the information & techniques to manage your own condition.
To us it’s just plain common sense…
“We believe therapeutic over-specialisation leads to limited diagnostic scope. That’s why we mix diagnostic & therapeutic elements from a variety of sources. It leads to diversification of diagnosis & treatment. This in turn leads to efficient care. Above all correct diagnosis be-gets appropriate treatment. The treatment should never be applied in the absence of a credible, logical diagnostic model.”

Rehabilitation through identification & correction of endurance deficit core muscles; essential for aiding recovery & preventing relapses; only in relevant cases.
As developed by NZ Physiotherapist Robin McKenzie. At the core of MDT (Mechanical Diagnosis & Therapy) is a system of syndrome categorising & appropriate therapy. It allows accurate diagnosis of pre-disc bulge radial crevices & disc bulges from other types of pain & allows for predictive outcomes. Its similarity to chiropractic diagnosis & therapy allows for seamless integration in our practice. We have found the “hands-off” MDT loading exercises to greatly enhance the results from our “hands-on” therapy.
