What is a Chiropractor?

Chiropractors are primary contact practitioners. They focus on treating the spine by using their hands to examine and treat health conditions related to the bones, muscles and joints

What is the clicking or cracking sound?  

The noise that you may hear when you get adjusted is a suction sound as gas within the joint escapes.  The adjustment does not aim to release the gas, it is merely a side effect of little to no clinical consequence.  Some adjustments don’t make any noise at all.  It is good to know that the click you may hear is not the bone itself. 

I work late what time do you close?

We close at 7pm on Monday,Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Do I need a refferal to see Ripple Chiropractic?

No, you do not need a referral to see us. Chiropractic is a primary health care profession; this means that you do not need to go to your GP before you visit us.  

When we look at Adjustments against other Medical Interventions they are incredibly safe.  Chiropractors are fortunate enough to have one of the lowest malpractice insurance premiums because of low numbers of litigations against the profession.  However, there are always risks associated with any procedure.  We minimize the risk through our thorough history, examination and testing as well as using specific gentle techniques.  We will always discuss any risks with you before proceeding with care.  No two cases are the same, therefore we tailor our approach to make sure we deliver to best Chiropractic care that is safe and effective.
