Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some answers to questions that pop up commonly that I hope help you. If you have any more queries or concerns please be in touch and we'll get back to you as soon as possible


I only need the Chiropractor when I am in pain...

Nope- the essence of chiropractic is allowing the body to function and perform at its best. This means keeping interruptions, blockages, or obstacles at bay. Chiropractic care is appropriate for so much more than aches, pains, and injuries. It has been shown to assist in sports performance, digestion issues, pregnancy, neurodiverse syndromes, developmental milestones, focus, stress, sleep and so much more. 


Is chiropractic safe for pregnant women and children...

Yes! I am trained in Webster technique which is a specific technique for pregnant parents. Recent research* has shown that Chiropractic care in pregnancy has been linked to reduced aches and pains, better movement, better pelvic balancing, and shorter labour times. Chiropractic care is safe, gentle, and effective. The techniques are adapted appropriately for each pregnancy, child, age and circumstance.
