First Visit

When you arrive, you’ll be greeted by one of our friendly chiropractic assistants. You can take a seat in our comfortable reception area and complete your paperwork. You can also download these forms from our website and bring them in filled out. You’ll then be taken on a brief office tour before being seated in our new person examination room.

The chiropractor will introduce themselves and then get started by discussing your history and what has bought you into the office and how we can help you.

The following tests may be performed, if indicated. They help us to assess your body for nerve interference. All tests are stored on our computers and used as a reference point so we can accurately compare your progress.

1. Thermal Scanning

A infrared scanner compares the temperature either side of the spine. It looks at an aspect of the Autonomic Nervous System function.

2. Static Electromyography (sEMG)

sEMG looks at how much ENERGY  your muscles are using to hold up your body against gravity.

3. Heart Rate Variability (HRV)

HRV looks at the variability of your heart rate at rest. It gives us a picture into how much reserve and resilience your body has.

4. Digital x ray with Analysis

Chiropractic x rays are taken at Auckland Radiology, Hauraki Corner. we use digital software to access your x rays from a chiropractic perspective.

Having performed all of the required tests we will compile the results of your case and if necessary consult with the other chiropractors and develop a working strategy for your care.

Please plan on being here for about 60 minutes, including the time needed for your paperwork.
Fee: $150 (does not include X-rays)

Report Visit

In order for you to have informed consent around your care the next visit is in two parts. The first is our Pre Care appointment in which we will explain where we fit in to the health care system and what you can expect. The second half is your personalised report of findings in which we explain what we found, how we may be able to help you and offer a plan to achieve your outcomes.

Of course, any questions or concerns that you have will be answered.

If all is in order we will begin care at this point.

Regular Visits

As Devonport is a “small place” it’s not uncommon to see friendly faces from the community in our reception. There is plenty of current reading material and a lending library.

Your regular Chiropractic visits usually only take 5-10 minutes. Sometimes an extended visit is required that may take an additional 10-20 minutes.

Our chiropractic team have extensive clinical experience and are leaders in our profession. We use state of the art techniques that get consistent and predictable results that we provide at a very reasonable cost.

We work in a network of like-minded professionals in Devonport so that you will be referred to appropriate services as your case indicates.

Progressive Exams

Your case is monitored visit to visit and every 12 weeks we have  progress examinations to ensure that we are on track with your outcomes. When your outcomes are met you can choose to stop your chiropractic care or proceed on to the other levels of care we offer.

We aim to give you are very best service and develop long term relationships with our people so that we will be there for you no matter what your health goals are.
