Frequently Asked Questions at Rennie Health Centres

Questions we are asked most:

  • What is wrong?
  • Can you help?
  • How long will it take?
  • What will it cost?

Answers are different for each individual and varies according to what you’d like to achieve. Pain relief may be quick and simple. Repair and restoration usually needs more time. The number of visits recommended will depend upon:

  • The condition of your spine and nervous system
  • The severity of your problems
  • The length of time you have had the problems
  • Your expected response to treatment
  • Your compliance with instructions and advice
  • Your own individual health goals/needs

Some people want more and seek answers at a deeper, metaphysical level. Part of our service includes interactive talks/ discussions on 8 different health topics and a more wide ranging mini-series called ‘Soul Journey’ usually conducted over three evenings.

Questions also asked:

Who can see a chiropractor?

Anyone! From pregnant mums, newborn babies, toddlers, children, teenagers, adults and the elderly. Chiropractic may have benefits for all ages.

Do spinal adjustments hurt?

Treatment by a chiropractor is usually painless and contrary to popular belief, is completely noninvasive. In patients suffering from back or neck pain, some discomfort may be experienced for obvious reasons.

Can babies, children and pregnant mums see a chiropractor?

Yes. Special adjusting techniques are used for younger patients or expecting mums.

Do I need X-rays?

X-rays may be required if the problem is long standing or there has been an injury due to trauma.

Do Chiropractors prescribe drugs?

No. Chiropractic is noninvasive and completely natural, therefore is drug and surgery free.

I’m not suffering any pain. Do I need to be checked?

We recommend that just as you see your dentist, you should have your spine checked on a regular basis.
