What to expect as a person
new to Buderim Chiropractic

You can book your chiropractic appointment online or call us on 07 5445 6366. Once at the Buderim Chiropractic office, you’ll be greeted by name and our Chiropractic Assistants will guide you through your initial (and subsequent) visits.

Ask as many questions as you need. Were here to help.


Initial consultation

Your initial consultation with our chiropractor is to discuss your health goals and see if chiropractic is likely to help you. If it looks promising, we’ll take a complete history, perform a physical, neurological and orthopaedic examination, and (if needed) refer you for x-rays. We’ll also add posture photos and a heart rate variability test (HRV) to look at how you’re coping with stress.

Please allow about an hour for your first visit.

do people see a chiropractor?

Many people first see a chiropractor because something’s wrong and, most often its musculoskeletal problems. Chiropractic care is a safe and effective way of correcting the underlying issues that cause back pain, neck pain, leg and arm pain, headaches and migraines.

Perhaps a friend or family member has suggested chiropractic care because they’ve had success with chiropractic techniques and treatment. More often than not, people stay for the added benefits they notice in their life when having regular chiropractic care. We help people of all ages and lifestyles from the tiniest newborn to our spritely 80 somethings who still play tennis.

In the modern world, people are proactive when it comes to their own health and the health and wellbeing of their families.

We regularly review your case and monitor your progress to ensure that we are on track with your outcomes. When your outcomes are met you will be given the chance to cease chiropractic care and we will close your case file or you may opt for a different level of care and expand your health outcomes with us.

Our goal is to give you extraordinary service and amazing results. We aim to develop long-term relationships with our people so that we will be there for you no matter what your health outcomes are.

If you’ve been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, please let us know. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.

How long will my treatment be?

Please allow about an hour for your initial consultation. After that, the average chiropractic appointment is about 15 minutes long. 

Is a chiropractic assistant a chiropractor?

Chiropractic Assistants are here to look after you but they’re not chiropractors.

However, they do most everything else to keep Buderim Chiropractic running like a well-adjusted spine.

Would you like to take advantage of our first visit discount?

If you’re thinking of enjoying the many benefits of chiropractic care, we offer an Exclusive Web Offer for the initial consultation. You’re welcome to share the love with family and friends to introduce them to our chiropractic care.

(We’ve heard they make a great birthday gift or a gift for co-workers.) 

Simply book online and pay when you visit us.

Do you need a referral from a GP?

Chiropractors are primary healthcare practitioners therefore a referral is not necessary. However more and more GP’s are referring to Chiropractors via the Enhanced Primary Care Program (EPC) which entitles you to 5 complimentary visits under Medicare. Please speak to your GP for more information.



I have been attending Buderim Chiropractic for over 12 months now and I always feel so welcomed and valued. The service and support has been amazing. My son attends with me, he loves his adjustments and the way the girls keep him calm is great. I’ve learnt so much about chiropractic and how it can improve your overall wellbeing.

I have been regularly coming to this practice for nearly 2 years, which speaks for itself. I always receive friendly welcoming service and I like that the practitioner takes the time to listen to my concerns and gives me clear explanations and proactive feedback on what I can do to enhance my adjustments and overall wellbeing.
