Our chiropractor performs a thorough consultation & examination to determine what your problem is and whether chiropractic can help.
Our chiropractor will go through your Consultation followed by a Physical Examination – including things like Range of Motion, Muscle tests, Orthopaedic & Neurological exams. This thorough assessment allows our chiropractors to gain a complete clinical picture for what is causing your problem. This also helps determine how our chiropractors can best take care of you so you get the results you desire ASAP. If x-rays or other scans are needed, referral to a convenient location will be organised (x-rays are bulk-billed).
Treatment will usually begin here, however with some conditions the results from future tests are required before this can occur.
Return consultations check how you’re responding to treatment, provide treatment as required, as well as following up on any recommendations such as exercises.
These are review visits to monitor your progress and ensure you are on track with your health goals, and they form a very important part of your care.

Chiropractors must complete a 5 year degree at university (an example being RMIT University) and are primary health care providers (meaning no referral is required to see them). Like your general practitioner (GP) they have a thorough knowledge of the human body. In fact the studies of a GP and Chiropractor are similar in the health sciences (anatomy, physiology, etc) but differ in their assessment and treatment methods.
Dry needling is the use of small acupuncture needles for therapy of muscle pain. It is a neurophysiological evidence-based treatment technique that improves pain control, reduces muscle tension, and facilitates an accelerated return to active rehabilitation. Dr. Tass is fully certified to complete dry needling in a safe manner.
