What is Chiropractic
Chiropractors are like the mechanics of your body. Using physical therapies we help you restore function & mobility to the joints and muscles of your body reducing pain, stiffness and symptoms. Doug is a Blacktown Chiropractor with 14 years experience
What is Doug's Style?
I treat clients the way I like to be treated. If I pay for a massage and the therapist is soft and barely touches me I am disappointed.
My style is to be thorough and effective. I am an "old school" chiropractor who believes in adjusting wherever I find restrictions in the spine.
I am not soft or gentle but I am effective and the results are lasting.
I often say to clients, "you may not like me whilst I am treating you but when I am finished you will love me".

First Visit - what can I expect?
The first thing that will happen is that you will have a conversation with Doug (Blacktown Chiropractor) about your personal situation. He will ask questions to determine your problems, individual situation and stresses on your life (physical, emotional, etc.).
This will be followed by an examination, explanation and initial treatment. You will be stepped through the process as slowly or as quickly as your own situation requires.
How is Chiropractic different to Massage?
Massage & Chiropractic are similar but very different. Massage Therapy involves the use of manual pressure on tight muscles to remove tension and tight spots.
Chiropractic works on the joints in your body that have seized up or stiffened up and are not moving the way they are supposed to. With careful application of a controlled force to the affected joint the Chiropractor can restore motion, flexibility and remove the cause of the pain.
In fact Massage & Chiropractic are highly effective therapies that compliment each other and work exceptionally well when combined with each other.
