3 STEPS TO A HEALTHIER YOU
First Visit – Assessment (One on One)
To get you started we perform a comprehensive assessment that takes place over 2 visits. During the first visit we gather information about your current health and perform a series of tests to ensure that we understand how we can improve your health and keep you doing the activities that you enjoy.
Second Visit – Report Visit
On the second visit we explain and demonstrate your active life program. The program is specific to your needs and includes a tailored exercise program as well as lifestyle advice.
Group Exercise Sessions
Following your assessment we invite you to join our centre and participate in our supervised group exercise sessions. While it is a group setting, everyone performs their own program at their own pace. The group numbers are limited and the sessions times are flexible to fit around your needs.
Individual Exercise Sessions
In addition to our group exercise sessions, we also offer individual sessions with our exercise physiologists. During these sessions we are able to provide the best possible level of care and offer greater variety to your exercise experience.
Our exercise physiologists perform regular reviews with you individually to track your progress and make adjustments to your program.
Chiropractic therapy looks at the structure and function of the bones, muscles and joints paying particular attention to the function of the spine and the nervous system.
Where dysfunction is identified a variety of techniques (based around chiropractic and soft tissue therapy) are used to restore normal function including hands on therapy, table and instrument assisted techniques, dry needling, taping and rehabilitation exercises. We utilise the latest equipment and research along with safe and gentle techniques to gain the best results for our patients in the quickest time possible.
At our Gordon Centre our Chiropractor Suzy specialises in Seniors health conditions and uses safe and gentle techniques to help with many conditions. The techniques are done in a manner which is very comfortable for the patient.
