What does a chiropractor do?
Chiropractors adjust the spine, aligning your musculoskeletal structure so your body can heal itself. Adjustments can involve hands-on manipulation of your body and other alternative methods. The manipulation of the musculoskeletal structure restores joint mobility damaged in a harmful event such as sports injuries, automobile accidents or repetitive stress.
About Our Chiropractic Doctors
Family and Sports Chiropractic have been proudly serving Cannon Hill and the neighbouring communities throughout Brisbane since 2001.
Our approach is simple. We believe that health is amongst our most valuable possessions. And while we generally meet people after they’ve lost their health, our commitment is two-fold.
1. Chiropractic Relief Care
Many people seek care in our practice and have one goal: relief. So that’s where we start!
Uncover the underlying cause of the health problem
Suggest a care plan to produce the fastest results possible
Offer ways patients can participate in their recovery
Explain the value of post-symptomatic wellness care
2. Chiropractic Wellness Care
We’re committed to teaching our patients that true health is a journey, not a destination. Our desire is to see our practice members abandon the prevailing sickness care model of health (waiting for symptoms and then taking action), in favour of the emerging wellness model.
Regardless of your health goals, you’re the boss! It’s your body, your health and your future. Our job is to offer you the finest chiropractic care possible, make appropriate recommendations and work together to achieve your goals.
Meet the Chiropractor
Patrick Ferries is originally from Canada and is a family chiropractor who is very passionate about health and fitness.
During my 5 years at Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis Missouri USA courses included biochemistry, a major emphasis on anatomy and human physiology, X-ray, diagnosis, chiropractic adjusting techniques and patient care in the Logan College Public Clinic.
After graduating in 1996 I worked in California in a personal injury clinic and a general family practice. In 1997 I moved to Port Pirie, South Australia and managed a large family country practice. My wife Leanne and I moved to Brisbane in 2001 and established my chiropractic clinic, Family & Sports Chiropractic.
What to Expect at Family and Sports Chiropractic
During your initial consultation, your Chiropractor will take a comprehensive history of your overall health. Your consultation will also include a postural assessment.
At the completion of all your testing, we will discuss with you the results of your testing . If at this point, you have any questions whatsoever, we will happily answer every question you have prior to commencing any treatment.
If we don’t think we can help, we’ll tell you and do our best to refer you to the appropriate specialist.
Regular care can help ensure that your physical problems do not return and avoid many of the aches and pains that so many people suffer. Chiropractic care is similar to following an exercise program and eating well in order to achieve optimal health.
Like a regular workout at the gym each visit builds on the one before.
At Family and Sports Chiropractic we understand that each person is different, unique and has individual requirements, so we tailor your treatments according to your specific needs.
