How we care for you
Your Initial Consultation
In your initial consultation this is where the chiropractor will take a deep dive into your health history to help determine if chiropractic care is beneficial for you and your case.
Report of Findings
Once we have collected all the information from your consultation our chiropractor will create a report of findings.
Your care plan is developed based on these findings with the overall goal of restoring and optimising spinal function to its optimal level.

Back pain can be debilitating and persistent, and recurrent for some. It can happen anywhere along the spine or pelvis but commonly occurs in the lower back and can include the pelvis. Chiropractic care is a safe and effective method for back pain relief. Even if you have previously had back surgery, chiropractic care can help maximise and maintain your recovery

‘Chiro’ comes from the Greek word for ‘hand’, and ‘practic’ means ‘to practice’. A chiropractor is a Primary Healthcare Professional who uses only their hands to treat their patients (no medicine or surgery)
Chiropractors are able to assess for and detect a loss of motion in areas of the spine that have become dysfunctional or ‘stuck’ due to injury, posture and lifestyle stress that has accumulated over time. They use safe, specific and gentle techniques to return the normal motion to the joints in order to restore communication in the nervous system and restore the body back into its natural balance
As chiropractors are primary healthcare professions, anybody can come in to see them. Typically the kinds of people who choose to see a chiropractor are suffering from symptoms such as neck or back pain, headaches, sciatica, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, sports injuries, arthritic conditions and nerve pain (to name a few). Although people come in with a wide variety of symptoms, equally many people choose to come in for wellness and prevention of injury and dis-ease, and to combat the stresses and strains that our daily lives throw at us
Both professions started from very similar origins and both work use their hands to help restore function to their patients. It does depend on which techniques the chiropractor or osteopath choose to use, but chiropractors are more focused on restoring function and balance to the central nervous system through specific adjustments to the spine, whereas osteopaths will tend to use more longer lever and general techniques to allow movement in joints and muscles.
This is the part of the chiropractic lifestyle that aims to educate the patient and the public on how to Eat, Think and Move their way towards optimal health and empower them to be the best that they can be. The founder of chiropractor Daniel David Palmer once famously said “Medicine is the study of disease, and what causes a man to die. Whereas Chiropractic is the study of Health, and what causes a man to live.”
By far the most common cause of sciatica (nerve pain travelling into the leg) originates from nerves becoming compressed in the lumbar spine. There are a number of reasons that can cause this to happen. Once your chiropractor has determined to location and cause of the ‘trapped nerve’ they can assist in its recovery and help to prevent it from returning.
This is the most common symptom people come to see a chiropractor for, as it is one of the most common consequences of the way we live and work in the western world. People get great results with chiropractors helping them with their recovery and management of back pain issues, provided that the cause is coming from the spine or nerves. Be sure to come in for a consultation to determine what is causing your back pain before receiving and adjustments or treatment.

"Mike’s first experience of chiropractic was as a patient at 11 years old, to help with various sports injuries. In particular a serious knee injury whilst skiing at the age of 7 years old.
Chiropractic helped Mike to continue his various sporting activities to a high level, and to function at his best in day-to-day life. At the age of 13 he had already decided that he was going to pursue a career in Chiropractic.
Mike has a passion for optimising human health, and helping people to live as long and healthy lives as possible. Knowing how important posture is to health and longevity, he has a particular focus on improving people’s postures with specific corrective chiropractic techniques. He also has many years of experience in helping people with upper and lower limb problems.
Outside of clinic Mike likes to push his comfort zone and test his body. He’s a huge advocate of the cold immersion (ice baths) and it’s health benefits, he regularly practices mindfulness and enjoys the freedom of hiking up mountains. He loves skiing, tennis, watching Formula 1 and travelling the world to experience as many different cultures and foods as he can."
"Morris is a chiropractic graduate from the Durban University of Technology class of 2017. I started being actively involved in Sports Chiropractic when I was a second year Chiropractic student in 2012, working with Jaguars Rugby Club as the assistant team Chiropractor.
In 2015, I became the team Chiropractor for the Durban University of Technology Women Football. From 2016 I was taken up by the University of KwaZulu-Natal Sports Science Department where I was the Resident Chiropractor for their Football teams. I travelled across the country with the teams for their USSA and Varsity Tournaments.
When I qualified in 2017, I went on to open my own private practice in a South African third-world community called Umlazi, where no one knew about Chiropractic. I became actively involved in community events raising the awareness about Chiropractic, offering free Spinal Assessments, Health Education and Promotion. In 2019, I decided to be adventurous and joined the World Voyage Cruise Ship, Queen Mary 2, where I was working the onboard Chiropractor while travelling the World. On the flipside of the story, I am an active researcher with a few publications in peer view journals. My main research areas are Epidemiology and Health Economics of Neuromusculoskeletal Diseases."
