Welcome to Tweed Chiropractic Clinic. We are here to serve everybody, of every age, as gently and effectively as possible - we are committed to you and your health without reservation. We can never guarantee perfect health but we can guarantee one thing - that for you we will always do our very best. Chiropractic care usually involves a series of treatments, each one building on the one before, and you will be continuously assessed as to your improvement. To improve your health as rapidly as possible and to avoid relapsing at a later date it is important that you maximise your healing potential by completing your treatment programme as prescribed by the Doctor.

Please have a look around and get to know us then contact us so we can get to know you.

Your First Visit.

To find out if we can help you, we ask questions and listen. Read more…

posture analysis Consultation and Examination. The first visit typically lasts up to one hour. This includes a consultation and thorough exam to assess your or your child's overall health and specific health with respect to the primary complaint. The Doctor may "adjust" you on this visit, according to the exam findings or you may be referred for X-rays or further tests in order to start you off on the best course of healing possible. If a candidate for Chiropractic care, most patients are typically "adjusted" on day one as our technique and methods are very gentle, as to almost never being contraindicated. Most patients feel better to varying degrees after day one but sometimes it is possible to feel a little stiff on day two as the body adjusts to using your muscles in the correct way. Your first visit includes a Spinal Health Care Class which is very strongly encouraged. Patients who attend get better faster, saving them time and money.

Your Second Visit.

We'll report what we found and answer all your questions. Read more…

Report of Findings. The second visit is very important as your reaction to the first treatment will provide the best gauge as to how long your healing period will take. The Doctor will provide you with a detailed Report of Findings and aim to answer most of your questions including; what are your diagnoses, can we help you, how long will it take and obviously how much will it cost. Your second treatment will build on the progress of the first. Your treatment schedule is very important and failure to follow it can cause the relief of your symptoms to be temporary.

Your Further Visits.

With each visit you will progress to better health. Read more…

Further Visits. Most patients feel better after the second visit but you must remember every person is different and depending on your injury, age, lifestyle and other variables, some people heal more quickly than others. Chiropractors call their treatments "adjustments" because they are very specific. Most adjustments take 15 - 20 minutes but sometimes longer. If you need a longer treatment there is no extra charge. Chiropractic is not a profession that is time specific but is effect specific and your treatment is tailored especially for you.
