Frequently Asked Questions about your Chiropractic treatment

Most private health insurance policies will cover chiropractic treatment. Check with you provider.

This will depend on:

  • Your particular condition
  • How severe it is
  • How long you have had the condition
  • Your treatment response
  • How much of your chiropractor’s advice you follow.

Chiropractic treatment is generally painless, and some patients experience relief immediately afterward treatment. Patients who come for treatment suffering with moderate to serve pain may experience some minor temporary discomfort for obvious reasons. Don’t worry if you hear a clicking or popping noise when one of your joints is being adjusted – this is perfectly normal with some forms of treatment.

There is a range of scientific evidence from randomised clinical trials (Bronfort Report) to prove the effectiveness of chiropractic treatment for a variety of musculo-skeletal conditions including low back pain, neck pain, cervicogenic headaches, dizziness and migraine, as well as a number of upper and lower extremity disorders. Official government guidelines from the NICE suggest the early referral for manipulative treatment, such as chiropractic is the most effective way of dealing with acute and chronic low back pain.
