The Shirley Rd Chiropractic Team
Since opening in 1998 Shirley Rd Chiropractic has always worked closely with medical and other allied health care practitioners to help find solutions to both simple and complex cases. Our passion is to help our patients, and the community at large, achieve and maintain optimum well-being. We believe that, as a gentle, non-invasive, drug-free therapy, Chiropractic is well placed to help achieve this goal. Almost all people arrive at Shirley Rd Chiropractic through a referral. Whether it be from their GP, specialist, dentist, acupuncturist, podiatrist, massage therapist, personal trainer, work colleague or a close friend or family member. The practice has been built upon a strong word of mouth referral network since its inception.
All chiropractic practitioners at Shirley Rd Chiropractic hold current general (non-specialist) registration as Chiropractors and/or Osteopaths and are not medically trained in the field of neurology. While many of our patients have already visited their GP, neurologist or orthopaedic specialist patients who attend for functional neurology services should seek a second opinion from a registered specialist neurologist or medical practitioner, if they wish to do so, prior to commencing treatment. If appropriate, and the patient consents, we will often write to your GP and/or specialist if it will assist in the management of the condition.
