First visit to the chiropractor ever in my life. Dr Kent is very friendly and professional. Answers all the questions and gives clear explanation about what is happening. Already feels better after few visits However, everytime I attend the clinic I seem to be waiting for longer than expected. First visit waited about half an hour? Was asked to return for a X-ray after two hours (not sure why it wasn’t done at the same time) and ended up waiting for an hour. Few more visits after, I waited at least 15-20min until I had been seen for a quick adjustments. Would be appreciated if clinic runs a bit more strict with time. Usually for people who work full time, you are either early in the morning before work or late at night after work and you really don’t want to wait for that long. I think time management is also important aspect with providing satisfactory service to the patients. Do love the friendly, comfortable environment though

Dr. Kent is very professional utilising all the latest diagnostic technology to analyse what is required before treatment commences. Having never visited a chiropractor before I was initially apprehensive but the post- diagnostic adjustment process has been simple and pain free. They are an extremely friendly team and have always accommodated my cancellations or appointment adjustments. I also enjoy Dr. Kent’s energy and enthusiasm and have engaged in many interesting discussions during treatment on a wide range of subjects. I would highly recommend Dr. Kent and his team !

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Yes, we are! We are registered ACC chiropractor providers. However, we first need to assess a patient’s eligibility before confirming if an ACC chiropractor can help them.

    ACC covers anyone who is injured in an accident in New Zealand as long as it falls within their legislation. Sometimes, an ACC chiropractor may be just what you need to recover from an incident. In fact, ACC officially lists chiropractic care under a list of treatments they can help pay for. 

    An ACC chiropractor such as Papakura Chiropractic can make a claim to cover a part of the cost of treatment. Treatment must meet the following criteria to be eligible for a claim: 

    • The ACC chiropractor must assess your situation and must deem it eligible for ACC to cover care.
    • Your claim is submitted by a registered New Zealand-licensed ACC chiropractor and ACC accepts it.

    An ACC chiropractor claim covers part of your treatment costs. Generally, the total cost depends on the extent and type of treatment you’ll need. The amount that ACC pays for each treatment changes each year and is set by government legislation.

    It is also important to understand what can’t be claimed from ACC:

    • Treatment and services unrelated to your covered injury.
    • Pre-existing or underlying condition.
    • Treatment that is provided outside of NZ.

    If you’re in search of an ACC chiropractor with an ACC claim, you should tell us right away. As we are a registered ACC chiropractor team, we can handle claims on your behalf and get treatment underway.

    When choosing an ACC chiropractor you want to look out for three things; quality of service, location, and timeliness. It goes without saying that only a registered ACC chiropractor is able to services that can be covered by ACC. Our practice certainly is, and we are happy to discuss with you in advance whether you meet the criteria.

    Quality of service should be a major influence in your decision to pick an ACC chiropractor. You want someone with experience and knowledge to help get you back on track and feeling better. Membership in the New Zealand Chiropractic Board is a must, and the New Zealand Chiropractors’ Association is a bonus. Both of which we are members of. Additionally, you want to look at what people say about the ACC chiropractor you are likely to choose. Google reviews are a great starting point, along with other review networks and word of mouth. 

    Location is clearly important when picking an ACC chiropractor too. You want to pick someone conveniently located near a place you frequently visit. That may be your home or your place of work. If that area is in the South Auckland region, then we are conveniently located at the heart of Papakura. 

    When you are looking for an ACC chiropractor, you want someone who can process your claim in a timely manner. This is so there are no delays and you can begin receiving the treatment you seek. Our clinic has been around for over 60 years and has very capable processes in place. That means that our staff is able to begin processing your ACC chiropractor claim as soon as we’re informed.

    Simply put, we’re here to help and make your experience a pleasant one when picking your ACC chiropractor.

    As an ACC chiropractor, we regularly see patients who visit us as a result of a work injury. Of course, accidents can happen and do happen. However, taking measures to minimise the risk of injuries that lead to seeing an ACC chiropractor, goes a long way. 

    Regular physical exercise is a key component of a healthy lifestyle and functioning musculoskeletal system. If your muscles are used to being active on a regular basis, injury from unexpected movement may be avoidable. A great example is moving a heavy box in the office and pulling a muscle on your lower back. Regular exercise provides the knowledge and muscle strength to minimise stress and avoid a visit to an ACC chiropractor. 

    It is also worth noting that seeing an ACC chiropractor isn’t only for those seeking recovery treatment post-injury. Besides being a registered ACC chiropractor clinic, we also see people who seek improvement of their overall well-being and immunity.  

    Proper posture is also fundamental to an overall healthy body, and a preventative measure against injury. Of course, an ACC chiropractor can track and advise on corrections you can take in the future. However, correcting any posture deficiencies pre-injury gives you the best tool to avoid any. 

    Getting enough high-quality sleep is another important factor in your overall well-being. As a result, the benefits of being more attentive, and mentally and physically stronger during the day are key components. An ACC chiropractor will typically recommend getting between 7-9 hours of sleep per night. Your sleeping environment will impact the quality of sleep you get. Elements such as darkness, a memory foam pillow, and avoiding screen time are all recommendations your ACC chiropractor may mention.
