Chriropractic | Spectrum Healthcare


Spectrum Healthcare’s Chiropractors are trained to diagnose, treat and manage injuries using a range of diagnostic methods, including observational and tactile assessments, as well as orthopaedic and neurological testing. We focus on providing hands-on chiropractic treatment through the use of soft-tissue or massage therapy, dry needling and, if necessary, the selective use of adjustments.


What is a Chiropractor?

A chiropractor is a trained health professional who is able to handle issues arising from a person’s bones, muscles and joints (musculoskeletal problems). Whilst most chiropractors are known for dealing with the back and spine, our chiropractors are able to treat injuries all over the body, including shoulders, necks and lower limbs.

Additionally, our chiropractors have a keen interest in sports-based injuries, and have the ability to treat athletes at all levels from many different sports. Sports chiropractic differs from regular chiropractic as it focuses on conservative treatment and rehabilitation, as well as the optimisation of performance, which is an imperative part of any athlete’s career.

What to expect from your first appointment with us:

Your initial chiropractic appointment at Spectrum Healthcare will look something like this;

  • Our friendly reception staff will greet you upon arrival and you will meet your practitioner who will be consulting with you.

  • He/she will conduct a thorough history and physical examination to help get a better understanding of your injury and what you hope to achieve from treatment.

  • Following examination, a summary of your injury will be explained to you including the diagnosis, treatment plan, prognosis, expectations and if further investigations or imaging may be required.

  • Once a mutual understanding and agreement is achieved treatment will commence involving either manual therapy or exercise rehabilitation. At the end of your initial consultation, your treatment plan will be revised including as well as your treatment scheduling and any take-home advice.
