It includes:

1. Doctors Consultation - The Chiropractor will take a detailed history of your symptoms as well as your current medical history

2. Postural Assessment - Chiropractic testing, orthopedic testing, mobility testing and postural analysis will be conducted to asses your current condition

3. Review of X-rays/MRI (if any) - If you have an existing set of imaging then feel free to bring these along for our Chiropractors to assess

4. Treatment. (Eg. Chiropractic Adjustment, Decompression Therapy) - If everything is deemed safe then you will receive your first treatment.

A chiropractic adjustment is a high velocity, low amplitude force applied by hand to an area of the spine to improve joint function which ultimately reduces pain.

Generally treatments required are dependent on a few factors. We take into consideration your goals of treatment, short and long term measures as well as severity of the existing condition. For example, someone with general neck aches will require lesser treatments than someone suffering from a cervical disc herniation. Your Chiropractor will be able to advise accordingly after your consultation.

One of the most important factors in achieving the best possible outcomes is following the recommended frequency of visits as prescribed by your chiropractor. While committing to a package/treatment plan is not required, it is often recommended to achieve the best results and maintain long-term health benefits. Your chiropractor will work with you to create a personalised treatment plan based on your specific needs and goals, and will discuss your options and provide you with a recommended treatment plan. Ultimately, the decision to commit to a package is up to you, but it is important to keep in mind that consistency is key in making progress towards optimal health and wellness

Chiropractic care has been shown to provide long-term relief for many individuals suffering from musculoskeletal conditions, such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches. By addressing the root cause of the problem and not just the symptoms, chiropractors aim to promote overall wellness and prevent future issues from arising. However, the effectiveness of chiropractic care varies from person to person and depends on various factors such as the severity of the condition, overall health, and lifestyle habits. With ongoing chiropractic care, patients may experience long-term benefits such as increased mobility, improved posture, reduced inflammation, and enhanced overall well-being.

Chiropractic care is focused on diagnosing and treating misalignments in the spine and other joints, also known as subluxations. Chiropractors use manual adjustments to realign the spine and restore proper function to the nervous system, which can improve overall health and well-being. Chiropractors also emphasise the importance of preventative care and lifestyle modific ations to prevent future injuries and maintain optimal health.

Physiotherapy, on the other hand, is focused on treating physical impairments and disabilities through exercises, manual therapy, and other modalities. Physiotherapists aim to restore function, mobility, and independence to individuals with injuries or chronic conditions. They also provide education and guidance on injury prevention and management.

At our clinic, our chiropractors not only provide expert spinal adjustments and personalised treatment plans, but also have extensive experience in rehabilitation exercises. This allows us to provide a holistic approach to care and help patients achieve optimal results in both pain relief and long-term health and wellness.

While both chiropractic treatments and physiotherapy can be effective in treating musculoskeletal conditions, they approach treatment from different perspectives.It is important to note that each individual and their condition is unique, and the best treatment option may vary depending on their specific needs and preferences.

Chiropractic adjustments are generally safe and comfortable for most patients. Some patients may experience mild discomfort or soreness following an adjustment, but this is usually temporary and can be managed with ice or heat therapy. It is important to communicate any concerns or discomfort to your chiropractor during the adjustment process so they can adjust their technique accordingly. Overall, chiropractic adjustments should not be painful or cause excessive discomfort. At our clinic, we prioritise patient comfort and will work with you to ensure a positive and pain-free experience.

X-rays are often used in chiropractic care to help diagnose and evaluate musculoskeletal conditions. They allow the chiropractor to see the alignment of the spine, severity of your conditions, identify any underlying/potential problems or abnormalities, and tailor a treatment plan specifically to your needs.

There are certain situations where X-rays may not be appropriate, such as pregnancy or young children. In these cases, we will use alternative methods to assess the patients.

Research has shown Chiropractic care to be effective against a range of musculoskeletal conditions. Statistics in Australia have indicated that patients who sought Chiropractors as their primary physician saw a reduction in medication and hospitalisations in regards to conditions related to the musculoskeletal system.

Even if you are not currently experiencing pain or discomfort, chiropractic care can still be beneficial for your overall health and well-being. By maintaining proper spinal alignment, you can improve your posture, increase your range of motion, and enhance your body’s natural healing abilities. Regular chiropractic check-ups can also help prevent future injuries and address any potential issues before they become more serious.

Chiropractic care can help improve poor posture by realigning the spine and correcting any misalignments or imbalances that may be causing the problem. Through gentle adjustments, chiropractors can realign the spine and improve joint mobility, which can help alleviate muscle tension and improve posture. Chiropractors can also provide guidance on exercises and stretches to help strengthen and improve posture.

Poor posture can lead to pain and discomfort, as well as a variety of other health issues, so it’s important to address it as soon as possible.

General sitting should not cause any backaches, however as apart of the ageing process we generally undergo some wear and tear in the spine. As this compounds over time we can start to experience earlier onsets of lower back discomfort whilst sitting. Be sure to take breaks away from the desk and implement stretching in your daily routine

Numbness can only be created by nerve stress/compression. Numbness in the hands and legs can be caused by spinal nerve compression i.e the lower back/ neck or peripheral nerve compression, this would be from obstruction or tightening of the muscles in the arms and legs. Numbness is not a common symptom and it would be best to get that checked once symptoms occur.

Yes, absolutely. Over at Live Well Chiropractic, Dr Siew Wei performs Webster technique which is a specific chiropractic sacral and pelvic analysis and adjustment specifically for pregnant moms. Webster technique is helpful in improving the nervous system function, providing a more balanced pelvic bone, muscles and ligaments. Side effects may include lesser lower back pain, more comfort and movement, better sleep, and posture, it also optimises the baby’s ability to get into the best possible position for birth.

The Webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of subluxation and/or SI joint dysfunction. In doing so, the neurobiomechanical function in the sacral/pelvic region is improved. 

It balances pelvic muscles and ligaments which eliminates torsion in the mother’s uterus. This reduces the potential of intrauterine constraint to the baby offering a greater opportunity for the baby to develop without constraint and get into the best possible position for birth.
