Your Best Chiropractor in Sydney CBD – Why I Don’t Do Ten Minute Treatments

No comments

Patients who have experienced this sort of 10-minute treatment before they come to me frequently state that they got the impression the practitioner was focused more on treating them quickly and having them come back frequently,often requiring treatment several times a week (which is absolutely not needed) or experienced little in the way of relief even though they’ve had 3 treatments.

Its highly unlikely to be able to provide quick & fast relief of chronic pain in just 10 minutes and not possible to correct posture without addressing the muscles as its the muscles which are responsible for holding the skeleton in an upright position and not the other way around. In fact, in my opinion the idea of fixing posture it is often used as marketing ploy to justify charging up to $70 and leaving people more willing to pay for such a short amount of time. 

Being a chiropractor myself, its sad to say that there seems to be a particular problem with other chiropractors putting profits before patients; it’s deeply frustrating to read research demonstrating that chiropractors on average see patients 4.5 times more often than an osteopath and 2.5 times more than physiotherapists. This research was undertaken in Australia, by chiropractors themselves, employing health fund data.

I believe that chiropractic treatment is the most effective when properly employed. However, 10-minute sessions, inevitably offering the same treatment independent of what the patient actually needs, treating six patients per hour and possibly more than 50 each day and geared towards the greatest profit.
