About Our Practice
Papakura Chiropractic is a family owned and operated business located in the heart of Papakura. The practice itself has been serving the community for over 60 years, and as the third-generation chiropractors here we are so passionate about bringing vibrancy to the life of every individual we connect with!
We focus on the health of the whole body, and do this using a series of functional tests, neurological scans, postural assessments and x-rays (if needed) to understand exactly what stresses your body is trying to overcome.

ARE YOU READY TO
Start your Journey with us
Made up of a full history and physical examination, including state-of-the-art neural scanning technology, full spinal examination, Range of Motion testing, and X-rays (if required)
We will explain to you the findings of your last visit, what we think is going on, and how we help you. This visit includes your first adjustment.
Solution Report & Care Plan
After seeing how your body reacts to your first adjustment, we create a care plan going forward with you. We will decide with you on the frequency of these adjustment visits on a regular basis.
A 'checkpoint' at the end of your care plan to see how we are going. This allows us to ensure we are getting the desired outcome and are meeting your goals, so that we know how to continue moving forward with your care.
Maintaining Your Health
After we reach your goals, it's important to keep your body tuned up to ensure your body doesn't fall back into poor functioning habits.
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes we do! We are registered ACC providers. However, we first need to assess a patient's eligibility before confirming a claim can be used.
In many cases, yes. However, you need to check directly with your health insurance provider to confirm.
Every spine is unique and we don't rush into treatment without getting to the root of the problem. Therefore, we need time to sit and put all of the pieces of the puzzle together regarding every person's health - this is so that we can evaluate the safety and efficacy that an adjustment will bring. This analysis and specificity are what sets us apart from some other chiropractors.
Yes, we are EVT certified, which means we are trained to help with non-spinal conditions (such as shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, and feet) as well.
We perform adjustments specifically suited to your tolerance/condition, etc. The patient may feel pressure while getting adjusted but it will rarely hurt.
Yes, most likely we will look at any case in a very different way than many other health providers. The initial consultation will give us more information about each case specifically.
We have the ability to, but we choose not to, that is not what we do here. Our goal is to be specific in correcting the interference between the brain and body, rather than mere spinal manipulations – in the wrong place, this can do more harm than good.
We sure can. Give us a call on 09 298 7766 or come visit us to learn more.
