South Morang Chiropractic Clinic
We remain open as usual, taking all precautions.
We have always been an acute pain clinic, and are LENGTHENING our appointments to get people out of pain in as few visits as possible.
PLEASE PHONE US, no charge, and talk about your pain. We are happy to give first aid advice and triage advice. We prefer talking to you now rather than facing a complicated problem later. And it keeps our brains ticking…
Thank you all, Liz and Ashlynn.
Our motto: FIND IT: Get the diagnosis right.
FIX IT: In as few visits as possible.
SEND IT AWAY: If you need someone else’s knowledge, we will refer you on.
We use a wide range of tools including traction, shock wave, dry needles, trigger point therapy and manipulation. We are happy to work with your GP and specialists, and provide “grease and oil change ” work for problems that cannot completely repair, like arthritis.
We are: Liz Baker, here since 1988, and Ashlynn Beattie, since 2015.
Our job is to keep your body from interfering with your life, getting you comfortable quickly and cost effectively. We also search for the things that keep your problem coming back, give you methods to avoid needing us in future. (Not that we don’t enjoy your company!)
What does professionalism mean to us?
It means the patient is respected. It means the patient is vastly more important than the money. It means ethics are paramount. It means not keeping a patient coming in when we are not changing their pain.
It means keeping our knowledge current. It means writing the tough medico-legal reports with care, and attention to detail. It means referring the patient on as soon as we see the need.
It means communicating with other health professionals no matter what their attitude is to chiropractors, in the hope that if we are sufficiently professional, we can lift that attitude.
We are not frightened by pain drawings like this. Saddened, energised, but not frightened or overwhelmed. We have TIME to hear the whole story and be thorough.
Our tools include traction machines, dry needling, microcurrent neurostimulator, extra corporeal shock wave therapy, manipulation, soft tissue therapy, trigger point therapy, and taping. Of course nothing is compulsory.
