Welcome to Cannington Chiro


When you come in, it’s the warm welcome that’s the first thing you will notice. We know only too well that you are likely to be a little apprehensive, not knowing what to expect can often make any of us a little nervous. At Cannington Chiro your Chiropractor in Cannington, from the moment you enter, you’ll be made to feel totally at ease. Our experienced and committed team will do whatever it takes to ensure that your visit with us is a pleasant one.

The first thing we’ll do is prepare your file and establish a detailed history of your overall health. Next your Chiropractor, Dr Tony Ivory D.C will perform a thorough examination incorporating (as required) orthopaedic, neurological and other medical tests. Then, if necessary, Tony may also refer you for x-rays to provide more detailed information about a specific condition. Combining all this information gives us a clearer picture to be able to deliver the possible recommendations for your health. If you can please bring any reports or other information you may have that may help us to better understand your condition.

If chiropractic care is the right choice for you, your Chiropractor in Cannington, Tony may start your treatment (first adjustment) right away. You can be confident that, before this happens, we’ll talk to you about your proposed care, the available alternatives and any potential risks associated with our recommendations. The more you understand about the chiropractic process, the better the results are likely to be. We’ll also talk to you about our recommendations for your follow-up appointment and future care.


Your Second Visit to Your Chiropractor in Cannington:

Further Assessment, Evaluation and Goal setting

On your second visit to your Chiropractor in Cannington at the Cannington Chiro Clinic we will discuss with you how you responded to your first adjustment; this gives vital information to your chiropractor as to how they feel you will respond to chiropractic care.

If x-rays are available, they give detailed information as to how you will respond to chiropractic care and how it is relevant to your individual situation. Your Chiropractor will make specific recommendations as to the most appropriate action to take in correcting your condition. You will have the opportunity to question and discuss your case and communicate your health goals so we can understand your priorities.

It is normally at this stage that many people realise that chiropractic care offers much more than they originally thought, and it soon becomes apparent that you don’t need symptom’s in order to benefit from chiropractic care. Others are regularly introduced to the improved quality of life that regular chiropractic care offers as a result of this discovery.


Approaches to Chiropractic Care:

Here at Cannington Chiro, we follow established, recognised procedures; help ensure a positive outcome, and these can be broken down as follows:

  1. Care for pain relief – This stage of care is aimed at reducing your pain or symptom as quickly as possible. This is usually the most intensive stage of care and aims to restore joint function and control inflammation as quickly as possible.
  2. Improve flexibility, movement and ease spinal stress levels to feel better for longer – Corrective care can address the long-term, bad habits of your spinal movement. It can help retrain how your spine moves. It can also help prevent relapses or similar injuries later. Corrective care requires consistent, regular adjustments over weeks or months, depending on the case. At predetermined intervals, full progress examinations take place in order to measure your progress.
  3. Management and maintenance (if required) –  As part of a natural, healthy lifestyle, people recognise that in addition to nutrition, exercise and emotional balance, proper body function is essential for good health. Regular chiropractic check-ups help ensure that the body continues to work at its best and sorts out any minor issues before they become symptomatic. Just like tending your garden or maintaining your car, little bits often reduce the need for major overhauls.

Note – This is intended as a guide only and will vary depending on how quickly you respond to care. Remember…The body’s healing methods are complex and thorough. They take time. Patience and perseverance are essential.
