Our Treatments

Chiropractic & Musculoskeletal Clinic | Acupuncture | Remedial Massage | Fortitude Valley Brisbane

What to expect in your first appointment

All of our treatments are conducted in a private clinical setting, in one of our private treatment rooms. At the start of your initial consultation, you will complete a current and previous medical history and list any current concerns or problems you are experiencing – you will then discuss with your practitioner.

Following this we will take you through a comprehensive orthopedic and neurological examination to help us understand and diagnose your current state of health as well as any major symptoms or problems you have come to seek help with. We will provide you with treatment in this initial consultation and make any necessary referrals (if required).

If X-rays or other imaging is required, we will provide you with a referral which is typically bulk-billed.

The initial consultation will take approximately 45 minutes and follow up appointments between 15-30 minutes depending on your needs. Our appointments are never rushed and our practitioners will spend time to make sure you are well informed.

With the diversity of treatment methods available at Our Chiro Brisbane, we can use a combination of these to best manage your health needs.

You will leave with a full understanding of your health or injury concerns and confidently on the road to recovery and optimal health.

Acupuncture FAQs

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medical practice that involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body. It is believed to balance the flow of vital energy called Qi, promoting overall health and well-being. Acupuncture is used to address various conditions, such as pain, stress, nausea, and fertility issues. The precise placement of needles stimulates nerve endings, releasing endorphins and activating the body’s natural healing response

What are the benefits of Acupuncture?

Acupuncture offers several potential benefits. It can help alleviate pain, whether it’s related to chronic conditions like arthritis or acute issues like headaches. Acupuncture may also reduce stress and anxiety, promoting relaxation and improved mental well-being. It has been used to address digestive disorders, insomnia, and fatigue. Additionally, acupuncture has shown potential in supporting fertility and assisting with pregnancy-related issues. It can be a valuable complement to conventional medical treatments, aiding in managing symptoms and enhancing overall health. However, individual experiences with acupuncture may vary, and it’s essential to consult with a qualified practitioner for personalized advice and treatment.

How does Acupuncture work?

Acupuncture works by stimulating certain points called acupuncture points, in a western medicinal perspective this stimulation leads to the brain releasing a variety of hormones (depending on the point used) to promote physical or emotional wellbeing. From an eastern medicinal perspective, it is about choosing a specific bundle of acupuncture points tailored to your constitution and lifestyle to tonify or reduce qi/blood, to achieve balance and harmony within the body.

Acupuncture is potentially for everyone, whether it is for temporary pain relief from waking up with a sore neck or someone who has chronic stomach pain that needs a long-term solution.

Numerous studies have investigated its effectiveness in treating various conditions, including chronic pain, migraines, osteoarthritis, and chemotherapy-induced nausea. Research suggests that acupuncture may provide benefits such as pain relief, improved quality of life, and reduced medication dependence. However, while some studies show positive results, others indicate mixed or inconclusive findings. Ongoing research aims to further understand the mechanisms of acupuncture and its potential applications. It’s important to consult reputable sources and discuss with healthcare professionals to make informed decisions about using acupuncture for specific health concerns.

What conditions may Acupuncture assist with?

Acupuncture may assist with a variety of conditions, including but not limited to: chronic pain (such as back pain, neck pain, and osteoarthritis), migraines and headaches, postoperative pain, digestive disorders (such as irritable bowel syndrome and nausea), anxiety and stress-related disorders, insomnia, fertility issues, menstrual disorders, respiratory conditions (such as allergies and asthma), and supportive care for cancer patients (including managing side effects of chemotherapy).
