Read my latest article on how x-rays and “fixing alignment” are used to scam back pain sufferer’s!

Have you been to other chiropractors previously & left wishing they would spend more time releasing & massaging the chronic muscle tension, pain & knots out of your back, neck and shoulders rather than just a quick adjustment? Did you get unnecessary & potentially harmful x-rays done or received a short 10 minute treatment that supposedly realigned your spine or fixed your posture without actually treating the muscles causing pain & tension to return days later?

3 treatment policy

Although rare, If after 3 visits there has been no/minimal improvement, treatment will be stopped and referral for further tests and/or another provider will be discussed with you. Kieran is a firm believer in an honest and ethical healthcare approach that puts you first and not profits and does not try to sign you up to long-term “treatment plans” that only provide symptomatic relief or require months of weekly visits.

Frequently Asked Questions

In the CBD a chiropractor visit can be up to $85 for 10-minutes. With this symptomatic approach most people will more than likely need multiple visits a week and frequent and ongoing visits.

At Sydney Chiropractic & Massage you get a 30–45 minute treatment which includes chiropractic, massage, dry needling, myofascial cupping for only $90 & $120. This approach saves you money as you get much more hands-on time spent with you, with most people only needing 2-3 visits and there is no need to see several professionals for the same issue.

Unless you have had a history of trauma, cancer or other more serious symptoms you do not need x-rays. Research has clearly showed the things that show up on x-rays such as arthritis/degeneration, misalignment etc… are not related to pain. You could take an x-ray of a group of people who never/rarely gets back pain and the findings will be almost identical to someone who has back pain. The Chiropractic Board of Australia strongly recommends against the use of x-rays without proper clinical justification. Taking x-rays to look for misalignments & arthritis is not clinical justification & goes against not only chiropractic, but medical & physiotherapy guidelines.

I have seen them used countless times as a scare tactic and a marketing scam. Someone has back pain, they get x-rays taken, told there “spine is out” and they have “arthritis” (which everyone has) and that’s the cause of their pain & will need to commit to excessive & expensive “care plans” & out of fear a more likely to do so. A 2019 study in the prestigious European Spine Journal found imaging in low back pain is associated with higher treatment costs & increased treatment utilization. Which is great if you’re a dishonest practitioner or therapist looking to increase profits.

Generally speaking, the adjustments are quick and painless. Some people may be hesitant about getting certain areas of the body adjusted, in that case there are many effective alternate techniques which can be used if needed.

The massage for the most part is a good or relieving pain, it may get a bit intense at certain points but the pressure is always kept below your threshold & done in short intervals. Usually by the second treatment as the muscles have released the massage is usually very relaxing and most look forward to the muscle work especially after longs hours sitting at a desk.

This depends on the chiropractor and the referring doctor. I have several GP’s refer their musculoskeletal patients to me based on positive feedback from mutual patients and my high success rate. I also have doctors I see as patients.

Yes, assuming you are covered for chiropractic you can get private health fund reimbursement. To get chiropractic partly covered by Medicare you will need to get an Extra Patient Care form from your GP. This is totally at the GP’s discretion.

  • I have for several years persevered with persistent pain in my lower back, neck and shoulders. Over the years I have tried everything to reduce the discomfort and at least make life a little more comfortable however everything I tried provided very little relief and the small amount I did achieve didn’t last long. Finding Kieran was actually a fluke it was a Saturday, I was experiencing real discomfort I had tried the general massage places that didn’t provide much relief. I literally stumbled onto Kieran’s practice and after the first session felt considerably better even after a week. I have continued seeing Kieran since as I am what is considered a work in progress. After trying everything and everybody for so many years, I feel extremely lucky to stumble on something that is actually helping.

  • I’ve experienced back pain for a very long time, often experiencing sleepless nights and having to take days off work. I’ve been referred to Physios by my GP to address the pain, but I hadn’t found anything that worked for me. I found Kieran purely by chance. I drove past his clinic to/from work, and decided to drop in to see if a massage would help. Since starting my weekly sessions, my back pain has reduced considerably and I’m no longer troubled by sleepless nights. Kieran focused not only on the location of the pain, but put a lot of effort into other areas which has made all the difference.  

  • I had been enduring an ongoing running related hip injury as well as neck and shoulder pain for more than six months before seeing Kieran. I was experiencing daily discomfort and was unable to do sport, despite costly osteopath and physiotherapy treatments. Kieran’s unique approach, which treats the whole body, delivered immediate relief to my back and neck pain, and after only another month or so of treatment my chronic hip pain had improved and I was back running and enjoying sport again. I highly recommend Kieran to anyone with an injury or discomfort.

I was experiencing a very tight back which felt like a trapped nerve. I was struggling to sleep because of the discomfort. After 2 sessions with... Kieran. He did a fantastic job finding the pain point and after using his great techniques to resolve it the pain it went away after 1-2 weeks. Highly recommended and will see Kieran again in the future if it ever happens again.read more

I highly recommend! I had been experience tension headaches on and off for a long time and following treatment for tension in my shoulder the... headaches have gone. Thankfully Kieran didn't give up when he realised how tight the muscles were and after four treatments there has been a noticeable difference!read more

The impact of my shoulder injury has affected my everyday life as well as my mental health over the years.After reading reviews on Kieran, I was... motivated to try someone new after years of seeing different practitioners. Someone who would have an extensive insight as well as empathy.My first consultation with Kieran not only alleviated severe pain but gave me a glimmer of hope that my shoulder can actually get better.I highly recommend if you are dealing with post-injury or chronic pain.read more

I’ve seen Kieran for a number of joint and back issues over the past couple of years. The treatment he provides is very different to any other I’ve... received in the past due to his expert knowledge and massage technique, which really helps ease muscular tension and reduces the pressure on the joints. When he suspected my knee injury couldn’t be solved with massage alone, he advised me as such. I appreciated his honesty and as a result he was the first therapist I contacted when I experienced a shoulder issue some months later. He found the source of the issue straight away and fixed it. I would highly recommend Kieran’s services to anyone experiencing joint or back problems.read more

I have been having issues with my shoulder for years now. Kieran was able to point out what the problem was and make a treatment plan for it. He was... easy to talk to and he set realistic expectations regarding my treatment. The actual treatment was great! I was sore for a couple of days after but definitely more relaxed. I really appreciate that he takes the time to educate me on what I could do to manage my shoulder pain at home so that I would be able to help myself.read more

Kieran is awesome, I walked in with serious muscle tension leading to migraines and unable to sleep comfortably and I walked out able to move my neck... and shoulders freely again for the first time in ages. He was able to help alleviate the immediate pain and taught me ways to make sure I don't get to that point again. 100% recommend, and will be going back!read more
