Our broad range of techniques allows us to employ unique therapies for each client. We can provide care for any age & by not being limited to chiropractic techniques alone we can employ a variety of approaches to treat the same condition. Thus finding the most efficient combination that suits you as an individual. We use long consultation times; allow 1 hour for your initial consult which usually includes therapy & 30 minutes thereafter. X-rays are not required unless diagnostically indicated.
To us it’s just plain common sense…
“We believe therapeutic over-specialisation leads to limited diagnostic scope. That’s why we mix diagnostic & therapeutic elements from a variety of sources. It leads to diversification of diagnosis & treatment. This in turn leads to efficient care. Above all correct diagnosis be-gets appropriate treatment. The treatment should never be applied in the absence of a credible, logical diagnostic model.”

As developed by NZ Physiotherapist Robin McKenzie. At the core of MDT (Mechanical Diagnosis & Therapy) is a system of syndrome categorising & appropriate therapy. It allows accurate diagnosis of pre-disc bulge radial crevices & disc bulges from other types of pain & allows for predictive outcomes. Its similarity to chiropractic diagnosis & therapy allows for seamless integration in our practice. We have found the “hands-off” MDT loading exercises to greatly enhance the results from our “hands-on” therapy.
