Longer appointment times for more effective results
In the chiropractic profession, some chiropractors see patients and perform adjustments in only a few minutes. At Sydney Spine & Sports Centre (S3C), we treat a little differently – from your first visit you can expect an un-rushed 30+ minute appointment. The benefits of our longer appointments are to learn more about your medical history, find the cause of your pain faster and develop a treatment plan that’s tailored to you.

Our chiropractors and physiotherapists use evidence-based practice to treat all muscle, joint, back, neck and spine related problems, conditions or injuries. This means each treatment you receive from our chiropractors and physiotherapists is supported by the latest evidence and research.
