Chiropractic Care

You’re in the Driver’s Seat

After he has determined what the problem is and how he intends to help you, Chiropractor Dr Zukerman will always ask for your consent before anything. He will ask what has brought you in and will let you know if he believes he may be able to help you. Rest assured that our chiropractor will listen attentively to you.

Next, our doctor will explain what chiropractic is. He’ll discuss the techniques that he offers and will let you know what you can expect. Then, using gentle and passive techniques, he will provide the chiropractic adjustment-after getting your consent. It’s always up to you how much care you want to receive and how often you wish to come to the practice.

Additional Services

  • Thermography: This technology indicates areas of inflammation or imbalance in the nervous system. No radiation is involved and it’s completely painless.
  • Foot Scanning: With this state-of-the-art scanning, we can analyse a person’s gait and determine if any foot problems are present. If there are, our chiropractor can have custom-made orthotics for you.
  • Posture Correction or Postural Analysis: With this technique, we take photos of the spine and process them through the software. Then we see if there are postural deviations and imbalances. For example, one shoulder may be higher than the other. If you have a posture issue, we can provide a care plan to address it.

Frequently Asked Questions

What problems may chiropractic help?

Chiropractic helps correct any misalignments (or subluxations) to allow your body to work better. Typically, the most common problems we see are back pain, neck pain, back stiffness, headaches, migraines, and posture problems. We find that more people are coming in for general back checks and spinal assessments.

How often will I need to come in for care?

This will vary with each person, depending on how long you have had the problem, your previous health history, any trauma or accidents and many other factors. After Dr Zukerman (Chiropractor) has done an assessment to see if chiropractic may be able to help you, he will be able to tell you how frequently you need to have care. It may be starting with 2 or 3 visits a week initially, or less frequently depending on the above factors.

Will my health fund cover chiropractic?

Chiropractic is covered by all major health funds at our practice, but you will need to check with your health fund for your level of cover. If your health fund says we are not a “First Choice” provider, then please advise us, as we will explain and assist you here.

Is chiropractic safe?

Chiropractic care is generally considered to be highly safe, but occasionally, it may cause adverse reactions in some people. Chiropractic has been around since 1895 and there are numerous scientific studies demonstrating the efficacy of chiropractic care. Many millions of people universally, have and continue to receive the benefits of chiropractic care.

I do not like the ‘cracking’ noise. What other techniques do you use?

Chiropractic has a diversity of techniques and our chiropractor is trained in many of these. We use gentle adjustments and we can avoid the “cracking noise.” We cater for your individual needs and have gentle methods for your comfort.
