There are no guarantees with Physiotherapy or Chiropractic, so unfortunately it would be dishonest, unethical (and actually illegal in Australia) to offer any guarantees in healthcare. What we can assure you is that we will do everything in our power to make sure we approach your issue with the highest level of professionalism and expertise possible. If we feel that we can’t help you, we will tell you and/or refer you to who we think will be able to. I feel this is one of the real benefits in our clinic, as we have found that the combined approach of Chiropractic and Physiotherapy often gets results when one alone may not.
Frequently Asked Questions
At your initial consultation we will do a thorough consultation and examination. We will also take, or organise scans, xrays, ultrasounds, MRI’s ect if required. Once we have a correct diagnosis we can discuss the results and recommended management plan with you to get the best results.. Unfortunately until we have formulated a diagnosis and a management plan its impossible to say how much treatment you will require.
In this situation you can decide for yourself, particularly if you have a preference to see one or the other. If you don’t have a preference and would like us to advise you, please give our office a call and we can advise you. Our receptionists are usually very good at giving advise as to who you should see, but if you prefer we can have one of the practitioners give you a call (at no charge) to discuss your case.
Surgical intervention for orthopaedic conditions is rarely the first choice. Unfortunately surgery often has poor outcomes, long rehabilitation times and long lasting unwanted effects. Of course, in some cases surgical intervention is required, however we would always try conservative non-surgical treatment first, and the vast majority of cases will respond exceptionally well without surgery.
