Patients

You do not need a referral to visit our practice as a new patient. We have found the majority of our new patients are referred to us by family or friends, their general practitioner or other allied health professionals – but it is not necessary.

We treat adults, seniors, children and babies.

Some of the common conditions we treat include:

  • Arthritic pain
  • Chronic pain
  • Disc Injuries
  • Headache
  • Limb pain
  • Muscular pain
  • Overuse Injuries
  • Pregnancy related back pain
  • Pins and needles
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal pain
  • Vertigo
  • Whiplash

Initial Consultation

Please allow between 45 – 60 minutes for your initial consultation and remember to bring in any information such as old X-Rays, CT or MRI scans which may help us in gaining a better understanding of your case.

Our focus is to gather all the information required to make an accurate diagnosis of the source of your pain and the underlying factors that may have caused it. During our first session with all new patients a thorough history is taken, and physical and neurological examinations are performed.

If we believe we can't help, we will happily refer you to a more appropriate provider for treatment or indeed further assessment by your general practitioner.

Further Investigations

Further medical imaging maybe required in order to achieve a full understanding of your case. If so, you will be referred to Geraldton Radiology at the St John of God Healthcare Campus in Hermitage Street. Geraldton Radiology provide X-Ray, CT, MRI, and Ultrasound imaging.

Techniques Used

Our focus is to improve the mobility, balance and reflexive stability of our patient's spines through improved sensory feedback, nerve and muscle function. Pain modulation is an expected outcome of treatment. Depending on the patient's complaint, medical factors and personal preferences we utilise the most appropriate techniques to achieve our goals. Our techniques include manual joint and soft tissue manipulation, drop table manipulation, pelvic blocking and instrument adjustment utilising the Impulse IQ. Rehabilitative exercises are of high importance and are given to patients when appropriate.

Impulse IQ Adjuster

Born out of a decade of research and engineering, the Impulse IQ adjusting instrument allows for specific, effective and gentle manipulation of the spine. Whilst the instrument produces the same corrective forces at the joint as manual manipulation, the Impulse IQ delivers the force very specifically and at approximately 100 time the speed, which greatly stimulates the proprioceptive (joint position) nerves that the brain uses to control, align and strengthen the spine.
