Monday Wednesday and Friday 8.00am – 6.00pm
The initial consultation takes 30 minutes. This includes case history, examination and appropriate treatment. If x-rays are required I will refer patients to one of the local radiographers. Subsequent treatments are 15 minutes.
I am an experienced chiropractor having been in practice for 38 years. All my time in practise has been spent in Launceston. I have always practised as a sole practitioner.
I keep informed of developments in the scientific aspects of chiropractic through reading and conference and seminar attendance. I have a strong interest in science generally and place myself at that end of the practitioner spectrum.
From my perspective a chiropractor:
- has an overall interest in health but with particular emphasis on a person’s neuro-musculo-skeletal system (nerves, bones, joints, muscles)
- can diagnose conditions affecting the neuro-musculo-skeletal system
- understands the role problems arising in the neuro-musculo-skeletal system play in a person’s overall health
- can help to resolve problems with appropriate treatment and advice but without the use of drugs or surgery (although these may be necessary at times)
In keeping with my scientific inclinations I maintain an evidence based practice as far as possible.
