Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do Chiropractors crack your back?

A: Chiropractors perform specific adjustments to dysfunctional joints in your body. Sometimes you will hear a “crack”. These sounds come from the Nitrogen gas cavitations within your synovial fluid within your joints. This whole process helps increase range of motion and decrease pain.

Q: Is visiting a Chiro safe?

A: In short yes. Chiropractors are University educated primary health care providers. A minimum of a bachelors and masters degree and 800 hours of anatomy and physiology training and clinical placements are requirements to hold registration. As with any treatment there is a risk, albeit small risk of side effects. These will be explained before any treatment is provided.

Q: Why choose Canberra City Chiro over the others?

A: CCC is an evidence-based clinic with a multi-modal focus on getting you out of pain. That means at least 30 minute appointments and a combination of Chiropractic, physio, and exercise rehab techniques. You can expect a tailored and personalized approach from your first visit.

Q: What should I expect from my first appointment?

A: First appoints run from up to an hour. Please make sure you wear comfortable clothes (shorts preferred). Your chiropractor will run through a history, examination, consent and an explanation of your treatment and other findings. If necessary additional tests may be ordered. After consent is taken treatment and rehab exercises are provided.
