Our hope is to see all residents of Hawke’s Bay province living a healthy life. To honour that, we welcome you and your loved ones to experience our gentle care amongst our friendly staff at either our Napier or Hastings locations.

If you’re new to First Chiropractic, take a look at some of the most commonly asked questions and then give us a call and let’s set up a time to get started.


Is chiropractic care covered under ACC?

Yes! We’ll provide the paperwork needed and you can fill that out in our centre.


Will you make a referral if I need it?

Yes. We will refer to trusted doctors in the area when we believe it can help you.


What else can I do to heal faster?

We’ll recommend specific exercises and stretches that you can do at home to help your body heal and stay strong. We also have supplements we will recommend to help ensure your body has all it needs to heal.


Will I be adjusted on the first visit?

Perhaps. Everyone’s situation is different and we’ll assess your needs when you visit us.


Are X-rays required for everyone?

Depending on your health situation, we’ll determine if they are necessary. Often, people don’t need to have them taken.


Can I see a chiropractor if I’ve had surgery?

Yes! We’ll sit down and talk more about your health first, but in most cases it’s perfectly fine.


Can I see a chiropractor if I’m pregnant?

Absolutely. Not only is it safe to visit a chiropractor during your pregnancy, it’s also highly beneficial for you and your baby. We have special pregnancy pillows that allow you to comfortably lie down and our adjusting techniques are gentle.
