Nicolas Maurice: Nicolas Maurice was born in Mauritius and moved to Australia in his early teens. His interest in chiropractic was sparked when he witnessed the impact that chiropractic had on his mother, who had been bedridden following a work-related injury. When the family moved to Sydney, Nick's mother attended a chiropractor, and Nick was fascinated by the steady improvement in her condition, mood and concentration. This experience inspired Nick's qualification as a chiropractor in 2006.
Since then, Nick has treated patients as young as a few hours old, to a 96 year old lady and is fascinated by the change in each patient's condition. Nick believes that although chiropractors are best known for dealing with bad backs, chiropractic plays a significant role in stimulating, enhancing and influencing the mechanisms that allow the spine and body to function more effectively across a broad range of conditions.

Your first visit:
On your first visit, we will gather information about your past and present health. This will usually take up to 45 minutes and we will:
- discuss your health history;
- perform a physical (chiropractic) examination;
- conduct orthopaedic and neurological tests;
- perform a spinal scan(surface electromyogram); and
- take spinal x-rays (if necessary).
Your second visit:
On your second visit, we will discuss the results of the tests carried out on the first visit. We will talk about problems you are currently experiencing and make recommendations for your care. If you are happy to proceed, your adjustment can start on this visit.
What is an adjustment?
An adjustment is a specific force in a precise direction, applied to a joint that is not articulating properly - it helps to restore the mobility of the joint and stimulates the intricate nerve fibres which attach to the joint capsule. When the force is applied, it changes the orientation of the joint which then initiates a change in the body's function.
The purpose of the adjustment is to reduce nerve interference to the nervous system and trigger a healing process. The body is self-healing and self-regulating, though sometimes it requires a helping hand.
The adjustment is the main method of care in our practice, and there are many different ways to adjust the spine. We will choose the best technique to cater for your specific needs. The techniques range from low force soft tissue release to manual adjustment to the use of activator methods; this is a chiropractic device which produces a very low controlled force to the appropriate spinal joints.
