Chiropractic is a professional, valuable and natural treatment option to improve your quality of life
PETER WARRENER CHIROPRACTIC CLINIC
Some people believe that Chiropractic treatment only looks after your spine. Not at all! Chiropractic involves the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of injuries across your whole body, extending to the limbs, shoulders, knees and even jaw complaints.
Dr. Peter Warrener has Chiropractic in his blood; he is a second generation family chiropractor with a Bachelor of Applied Science (Chiropractic) from RMIT University. For over 15 years, Peter partnered with his father Allan Warrener in their various Melbourne clinics, before relocating his practice to Moonee Ponds in 2001.
Since 1998 Peter has also been working as a clinical educator at RMIT University to senior chiropractic students. This keeps him up to date with any current trends, developments or research associated with chiropractic.
Peter is a registered member of the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia (CAA) and Chiropractic and Osteopathic College of Australasia (COCA).
What can you expect from Peter Warrener Chiropractic Clinic?
Peter Warrener is a practitioner who strongly believes in treating each patient as an individual so you can be assured your care will be specific to your needs. Peter has a varied patient base of male and female adults, with some patients in their 90's. He also treats pregnant women and children aged from 4 years onwards. However Peter does not treat infants and toddlers.
The initial consultation of one hour includes taking a comprehensive medical history and assessment of your presenting complaint and if clinically indicated, x ray referrals are bulk billed. Your necessary treatment will be explained to you in detail and your consent taken. You will always receive treatment at your consultations.
Peter uses a wide range of treatment options which include manual and low force spinal adjustments, soft tissue massage and ultrasound therapy. Postural advice, exercises, preventative and lifestyle strategies are also considered for your ongoing well being.
We respect your privacy and provide you with private treatment rooms, clinic gowns when required and you can feel safe knowing your personal details and health information are treated with utmost confidentiality. No information is released to any third party providers without your consent, including other health professionals.
An area of special interest to Peter is the feet. Since 2001 he has provided custom-made foot orthotics (shoe inserts/supports) to patients who suffer from leg or foot difficulties. Because Peter custom makes the orthotics himself, his prices are fair and reasonable.
Many structural problems in the feet can have a profound effect on existing leg or back complaints so recognition of such foot problems is essential.
Treatment is also available for specific foot problems such as plantar fascitis, tendonitis and heel spurs which may be required in conjunction with foot orthotics.
Peter also lectures on orthotics and biomechanics to senior chiropractic students.
The majority of private health funds recognise Peter Warrener Chiropractic Clinic as a provider of foot orthotics, which allows the benefit of a rebate on the total cost of orthotics. Peter custom makes the orthotics himself to provide his patients with fair and reasonable pricing structures.
An information brochure outlining the one hour orthotic consultation is available on request.
And for people who enjoy wearing thongs and open style sandals during the warmer months, this clinic sells orthotic based flip flops for added foot support.
Our clinic also stocks chiropractic pillows to suit your individual needs.
