Misconception #2: All Chiropractors are the same.
Like misconception # 1, Not true. In fact every chiropractic specialist is an individual and each of them have diverse skill sets and different methods that they were trained for and use in their practice.
For instance, one of my points of difference is that I do soft tissue therapy (massage) as well as chiropractic adjustments (the cracking) with my treatments as opposed to most chiropractors whose main mode of treatment is just the ‘adjustment’.
I spend half an hour with my patients compared to the standard chiro who treats anywhere from one to three people every 15 minutes.
This unique treatment style is a combination of chiropractic and osteopathy. I have held associate positions and trained with practitioners who are qualified in both professions. The targeted soft tissue work combined with adjustments or manipulation of the joints provides longer lasting results and is just a nicer way to have treatment.
I also do acupuncture.
I’ve worked with A grade and International representatives in NRL, Hockey and Motorcross.
