What to Expect at Mt Hawthorn Chiropractic Clinic



Welcome to Mt Hawthorn Chiropractic Clinic, located in a vintage building with a few modern touches. Our purpose built office and upbeat music create an uplifting vibe, ensuring a welcoming environment for you and your family.

Your First Visit

  • Welcome. We’ll greet you and ensure your forms are completed properly. You’ll then watch a new patient video before your consultation. (both the forms and video are accessible through the website)
  • Initial Consultation. First and foremost, this is our opportunity to listen to your story. It will then be up to the chiropractor to connect some dots and help you to understand how, where and why chiropractic may be able to help.
  • Examination. The Gonstead chiropractic examination is like no other in Chiropractic. The chiropractor will use a variety of skills to analyse your spine and nerve system before proceeding to the next step.
  • Nervoscope. One of the unique skills of the Gonstead chiropractor is in the use and interpretation of the nervo-scope. It detects heat as a result of inflammation due to nerve irritation.
  • X-rays. The Gonstead chiropractic x-ray process is unique and highly specialized. The full spine image allows for a complete analysis and subsequent understanding of
    • the nature of the stressors affecting your spine and nerve system
    • how they have been impacting upon it,
    • how long they have been doing so,
    • what resulting changes have occurred and ultimately,
    • how best to restore your spine to optimal function.

By reviewing your examination findings and X-rays, we’ll be able to take a look at how Gonstead chiropractic care may be able to help you. In most cases, you can expect this visit to last about 45 minutes.


Your Second Visit

Report of findings. We’ll gather all of our examination and x-ray findings along with information about your goals and your lifestyle. We will discuss with you how Gonstead chiropractic care may make a difference in your life. We’ll also provide our estimated time frame for your progress, from short term to longer term care.

Adjustment. A brief confirmation of your examination findings will prepare us to provide you with your first Gonstead adjustment.

Before you leave, we’ll ensure we’ve answered any questions you may have. Please plan to spend 15 minutes with us on this visit.

Standard Visits

By this point in your care, we’ll pre-arrange your visits for convenience and ask you to plan to spend around 10 minutes with us on a typical day. You’ll receive your Gonstead chiropractic examination, adjustment and we’ll answer any questions you may have.

You can expect that when you’re here our conversation will be a discussion of your health, making recommendations to help you live better. We’ll keep track of your progress and make sure we’re on track for your goals.

It’s important that you understand the correlation between a healthy spine, nervous system and your brain. Keeping the interaction of those in mind, we’ll always strive to ensure your body is healthy and functioning properly.
