We are committed to doing everything possible to get you the help you need.
In order to give you the best treatment possible we need to understand your body. We will complete a thorough clinical history, and a comprehensive examination.
At Capital Chiropractic Centre we work together. We discuss our findings with you so you know where you stand. There are no hidden surprises with us.
Once we know what has been causing your condition, we will tailor a treatment plan for you, specific for your needs and to your goals.
Once you get well it is important for you to stay well. Where appropriate to your condition, we may recommend using periodic maintenance adjustments, specific rehabilitation exercises and lifestyle advice to help you to prevent problems from returning.

Originally from Auckland, Dr. Leah has been practicing in underserved communities for the majority of her career. This has been an immense eye-opener for her to realise that a lot of people can learn to live with significant pain and dysfunction – primarily due to the lack of direction of not knowing how and what they need to do to get back to wellness.Read more
Everything you need to know before your first visit
Chiropractic is covered by all private health insurance companies. We offer a complimentary discussion. If, after a detailed history, we can help, you can proceed with a paid examination and treatment if required. The amount covered depends on the type of cover you have, please check with your private health insurance provider.

Prior to your first visit you will be required to fill out our new patient form (found in the new patients tab). On your first visit you will meet with one of our chiropractors to discuss your current health concerns. Your chiropractor will ask you additional questions about your health and history to get a clear picture of your entire health profile. From there we will complete a comprehensive, neurological, postural, orthopedic, and chiropractic examination on you, to help correctly diagnose your problem. From here, you may be referred for x-rays (bulk billed through medicare). Your chiropractor will then explain your condition, how chiropractic can help, and discuss treatment options with you. If it is determined you are a good candidate for chiropractic care, you will be adjusted on your first visit.
As with all forms of physical therapy, there are risks involved. That being said, our comprehensive intake process including clinical history, and physical examination ensures that we have the full picture prior to starting any treatment with you. We will discuss your options and keep you informed at every step along the way. Our number 1 goal is to ensure the safety and comfort of our patients. Our chiropractors will cater your treatment to your body. If we deem that you need to be seen by another healthcare professional, we will be sure to refer you to the right people.
For some individuals, the noise that is made when a chiropractor makes an adjustment can be a non event, while some find it off putting. This ‘pop’ noise is simply the escape of gasses from in between the spinal joints, not bones cracking or grinding as many suspect. The noise is no different to the gas escaping your fingers or knees. Our chiropractors utilise a variety of chiropractic techniques to help you. If the noise is something that you do not like, to make you feel more comfortable, our chiropractors can modify treatment, without compromising your care. Just let them know your preferences.
Not at all. You are free to see a chiropractor on your own accord. However, if your GP decides that chiropractic care is the best option for you, your GP can provide you with up to 5 EPC (enhanced primary care) visits which are covered by Medicare.
It completely depends on you, your goals, and your problem. How long has the pain or concern been around for? How severe is it? How healthy do you want to become? No two people are the same, therefore, no two treatment plans are the same. Based on our chiropractors findings from your history and the examination process, we will cater a treatment plan specifically tailored to you.
Yes, we see patients at all ages and stages from pregnancy and newborn babies right through to the elderly. Chiropractic care is adjusted to suit the individual meaning we can safely care for people in many different situations.
