    What makes Elysian
    chiropractic care so different?

    We believe in taking the time to precisely assess your symptoms and health history, so we can accurately diagnose your condition and injuries. Only then can we create a proper, effective treatment protocol for your rehabilitation.

    Our approach to chiropractic care can select from a broad mix of methods. We’ll utilise treatments such as spinal manipulation therapy, which is composed of different techniques that correct the joint movements of the body. We may also use muscle release therapy, which helps release muscle tension and restore the normal movement of muscle tissues. We also offer many other manual and tool-assisted manipulations and alignments, percussive instruments, laser therapy, shockwave therapy, dry-needling and much more.

    Our chiropractors are fully certified concussion management practitioners, able to treat head injuries from sports, motor vehicle accidents, or any unfortunate incident resulting in a head injury.

    We don’t do
    typical chiropractic

    Our patients agree — Elysian chiropractors give more time and attention during chiropractic appointments than any other clinic.

    Some clinics will assess and diagnose on the first visit but not offer any treatment during that first appointment. During follow-up visits, many clinics just give a quick manipulation and send you on your way. You’ll literally spend just a few minutes with a typical chiropractor before being shuttled out the door.

    Your first visit with us will involve a thorough chiropractic exam followed by immediate treatment. We should be able to provide you with some relief during your very first appointment without having to wait until your next visit.

    Follow-up appointments may be scheduled anywhere from 15–45 minutes to make sure there’s ample time for consultation, education, individualised rehabilitation exercises and other treatments. We’re not going to shuttle you out the door after just a few minutes.

    Some clinics require that you get an x-ray. We don’t. X-rays are only needed when they are absolutely medically necessary.

    We also don’t push our patients into buying pre-paid treatment packages. In fact, we don’t even offer a treatment package option. You can book one appointment at a time if you choose to do so.

    Frequently asked questions about chiropractic treatments

    How does chiropractic therapy work?

    Chiropractors help people affected by physical injuries, illnesses, or disability through manual therapy, assistive devices, exercise prescription, and education. In your initial assessment, the chiropractic physician will collect information from you about your symptoms and health history, followed by multiple diagnostic tests to determine the cause root of your issue. They will communicate their findings with you and immediately begin treatment. After your first session, the chiropractor may prescribe an exercise/stretching program for you, and recommend any follow-up treatments.

    How often does my chiropractic physician need to see me?

    It depends entirely on your circumstances (like age and medical history) and your type of injury or condition. Your chiropractor will recommend how often they need to see you. It also depends on your progress, which can greatly rely on your commitment to your treatment program. We find that people who attend the recommended treatment sessions and follow at-home care instructions by their chiropractor usually recover the quickest.

    What is a chiropractic adjustment?

    Chiropractic physicians perform what’s called an “adjustment” with a technique using their hands. Your chiropractor will manipulate your vertebrae by delivering a controlled, specific force to realign spinal (and other) joints in your body that are impaired or locked up. If you’re sensitive to adjustments, your chiropractor can use an assistive device called a chiropractic adjustment tool instead. The purpose of chiropractic adjustments is to realign your body’s structure and eliminate interference with your central nervous system, to decrease pain and improve your range of motion.

    Why is there a “popping” sound during chiropractic adjustments?

    The “popping” noise you hear during adjustments is totally normal and is no cause for alarm — it’s just the sound of your joints releasing tiny pockets of air.

    Are chiropractic adjustments safe?

    Chiropractic treatments are widely recognized as one of the safest natural drug-free treatments available. Spinal adjustments are extremely safe when performed by a licensed chiropractic physician.

    Is chiropractic care safe during pregnancy?

    Chiropractic care is not only safe during pregnancy, but many prenatal women feel reduced back pain and muscular strains during their pregnancy while receiving chiropractic care. The treatments will be adjusted according to the stage of pregnancy you’re in.

If you’re experiencing whiplash pain, our chiropractors can develop a treatment plan for short- and long-term pain relief.
