Wondering how an online consultation works without the hands-on therapy chiropractic normally provides?
One of the big differences with our holistic chiropractor is that they take the time to take a thorough history that helps us get a full picture not only of your physical, but also emotional health. We take the time to listen to your full story. This is the true holistic approach. We put all the information together, connect the dots and help navigate the best approach to getting you out of pain and back to your full potential physically and emotionally. With the growing demand for convenience and in-home services, this is the next evolution of chiropractic services.
Difference between a local versus an online chiropractor
Our chiropractor traditionally allows longer times for consultation to obtain a thorough health history including past medical history and questions around lifestyle and emotional health. This is important to get a good gauge of what is going on and deciphering where the origin of pain is.
Although you don't get the hands-on aspect of treatment, not all chiropractors manipulate with cracking. Research shows that education is a huge part of recovery. Our chiro will empower you and support you to get the most out of your online consultations. This can include general wellbeing advice as well as supplementation that may benefit you. A good chiropractor can treat much more than just the musculo-skeletal system.

What can a chiropractor treat online?
Contrary to belief chiropractors don't just look at the spine. Our holistic chiropractor is experienced in injuries that affect the elbow, wrist, hips, knees, ankles, pelvis and jaw. They also have a keen interest in herbs and supplements to support general health and wellbeing.
We take a thorough history including your past medical history and put all the pieces together to get to the root of your problem. With complex cases we can put the puzzle together and work out the priority areas that require work. In a face-to-face online consultation your chiropractor can still examine you to get a clearer picture of what is going on and give you specific rehab exercises to help improve your condition.
Our chiropractor is able to create a customised online rehabilitation program for you complete with clear images, video and instructions. This is great for accountability and for your chiro to keep an eye on your at home rehab. We use an easy to use app to get you set up with your exercise at home.
