Hi From Your Chiropractors, Michael and Amanda
Hi, we’re Michael and Amanda O’Doherty - the husband and wife team at the heart of Chiropractic Moves and home to Chiro Mamas. We run a family clinic in beautiful Paddington, Brisbane with a focus on treating conditions of the back and hips as well as working with mothers and babies to address the musculoskeletal issues of pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding.
Seeing a chiropractor for the first time can be daunting. But we’re here to help you understand how chiropractic care works, what to expect and the type of treatment you’ll experience while in our care at our Paddington, Brisbane clinic.
Chiropractor’s typically undertake a minimum of five years of university training, and most will have a Masters Degree in Chiropractic to be licensed to practice in Australia. We’re specially trained to treat musculoskeletal problems, read more below.
As primary contact practitioners, you can present to a Chiropractor with any health problem or concern. Whilst most people know Chiropractors treat injuries of the back and neck, as well as headaches. We also treat, rehab or manage a range of sports injuries, and conditions like hip pain, hip bursas, shoulder tendons and bursas, carpal tunnel, tennis and golfers elbows, and a whole lot more. Our Brisbane Chiropractors also have a special interest in treating musculoskeletal conditions related to pregnancy and paediatrics.
If your presenting problem cannot be treated with Chiropractic care, we’ll inform you and we can refer you to the appropriate practitioner.
Chiropractors use a combination of different therapeutic techniques including joint mobilisations, adjustments, muscle releases and exercise programs to strengthen, reduce pain, increase range of motion and improve function in daily tasks and sporting pursuits. We create individualised treatment plans for the unique needs of each patient.
In the past you may have known chiropractors who just crack your back and tell you to follow up in a month, every month. But some people don’t like back adjustments, or do better with strengthening or muscle releases or stretching. We want to find the treatment that gets you back to your favourite activities, whether it’s sport, work or playing with the kids. We're at our best when we're helping busy high achievers who don't have time to spend on years of treatment that doesn't go anywhere, we see people who are getting back into life after a big injury, who have just had the baby(ies) or who have forged their career path, and want to get their bodies moving, exercising and healthy again.
If Chiropractic treatment is right for you, we will offer treatment at your first appointment. We won’t make you come back and sit through a long boring information night, or a half hour chat and report of findings, before starting your treatment.
Whilst X-ray examinations are not routine, imaging will be requested if your presentation requires further investigation. If you already have images relating to your complaint, bring them along.
Chiropractic care is recognised as a health service by all private health funds. If you need to figure out how much money your policy will cover we can swipe your card in our terminal at our Paddington, Brisbane clinic for an estimate, or you can call your fund and ask them directly. We encourage you to contact your insurer prior to treatment to determine your coverage.
Our HICAPS facility allows you to directly claim from your private health fund at the time of your treatment. Then all you need to pay is the ‘gap’.
