    Dr. Edward Roper of Precision Chiropractic has more than a decade of experience, adequate enough for our standards. He specializes in treating neurological disorders, which is a unique and valuable focus in the field of chiropractic.

    Dr. Roper’s approach to treatment is gentle, yet effective in a way that immediately reduces pain. Our volunteer team member had a chiropractic session with him for the very first time and noted how “relaxing” it was despite feeling a bit anxious. 

    Actually, we do find him to be a really cool dude. At least his aura is better than feeling intimidated by the treatment.  

    Additionally, we value that he creates customized treatment plans tailored to a client’s specific needs. We weren’t expecting any less anyway, since practices like this are really on a case-by-case basis when it comes to results. 

    One thing that stood out to us was that he’s attentive to concerns and takes the time to get to know you on a personal level. Honestly, we’re people who are a bit nervous about chiropractic adjustments, but he puts fears at ease by thoroughly explaining the procedure.

    The clinic also offers a complimentary chat for new patients, which is awesome because it gives us a chance to see if we liked the vibe before committing to anything. We’re “first impressions last” kind of people like that. 

    Finally, they have three chiropractors at Precision Chiropractic, which we find great for availability. They’re just a bit more popular than the rest, so you may want to book far in advance to avoid long wait times.

    We recently checked out Be Balanced Chiropractic and were lucky enough to be treated by Dr. Laura Crowley. We find her work to be a valuable niche.  particularly her specialization in pregnancy and pediatric chiropractic. 

    Even though we didn’t visit for those services, it was great to see that she had such a unique and valuable focus in her practice. In fact, despite being new to the clinic, Dr. Crowley has 7 years of experience in chiropractic, which definitely showed in her treatment approach.

    She was confident, knowledgeable, and made us feel comfortable throughout the entire process. We appreciated that she took the time to explain what she was doing and why (it’s standard procedure, anyway).

    One takeaway from our treatment with Dr. Crowley was her holistic approach to chiropractic care. She not only focuses on the spine but also considers the entire body and lifestyle factors that may be contributing to any issues.

    The only drawback to our experience was Dr. Crowley’s limited availability, with appointments only available from 7:00 AM – 10:00 AM on Wednesdays and Fridays. 

    However, we understand that this is likely due to her busy schedule and appreciate her willingness to fit us in. And despite her limited availability, her expertise, knowledge, and holistic approach more than make up for it.

    We had the pleasure of visiting Chiropractors on Fraser and receiving care from Dr. Todd Smythe. As we said, we’re quite nervous about receiving adjustments, so we appreciated his ability to make us feel at ease and confident in the treatment.

    Dr. Smythe’s impressive credentials, including a degree in chiropractic and years of experience, were evident in his calm and reassuring presence. He listened carefully to our concerns and tailored the treatment to our specific needs, making us feel well taken care of.

    What we loved most about him is how he really listens to you and tailors the treatment to what you need. He took the time to understand the situation and made us feel like he had our backs (pun intended) all the time. 

    Now, we have to mention how nice the office at Chiropractors on Fraser is. We found the office to be cozy and welcoming, with a friendly receptionist adding to the positive experience.

    While parking can be a bit of a hassle, we believe the quality of care received from Dr. Smythe and the other chiropractors compensates for the trouble. And if it’s not a bother to you, commuting might be a better experience. 

    Overall, we highly recommend Chiropractors on Fraser, especially if you’re fortunate enough to receive care from Dr. Todd Smythe. His skill and versatility as a practitioner provide quality, effective care for patients of all ages.

    Such a lovely place to visit – staff are always friendly (particularly the receptionist, she makes you feel welcome and is patient with working out appointment times). I’ve always been able to get appointments last minute when needed and have had great success with relieving various aches and pains. Highly recommend Chiropractors on Fraser!! – Keryn Cashmore

    Treatment approach4/5

    Upon entering Naturally Chiropractic, we were immediately greeted by a warm and welcoming atmosphere, which was a great relief for someone who can be nervous about chiropractic visits. We’re always a sucker for comfortable places. 

    Dr. Mikaela Manning-Gordon is a standout chiropractor, focusing on ongoing preventive and wellness care for people of all ages, and tailoring her adjustment style to the individual.

    Dr. Manning-Gordon’s attentive and personalized approach made us feel comfortable during the process. Observing her work with a few clients. it was clear that she took the time to evaluate their condition and develop a personalized treatment plan.

    For us, this meant that she took the time to ensure clients were comfortable with the adjustments she was making. As someone who’s had less-than-pleasant experiences with other chiropractors in the past, this was a huge plus.

    One thing our team found inconvenient though was that they don’t have on-site x-ray services. However, Dr. Manning-Gordon made up for this by taking the time to thoroughly evaluate conditions and provide treatment plans that didn’t require X-rays.

    We were also impressed to learn that she has experience working with athletes, which gave us confidence in her ability to provide effective treatments. Some of them are high-profile individuals so we’re quite pleased with that. 

    Overall, we find ourselves interested to return to this clinic for ongoing care in the future. Hopefully, it’d be easier to book an appointment with her by then.

    Dr. Blair Norwood of Chiropractic House is a highly experienced chiropractor with over two decades of expertise. His approach to healthcare emphasizes the body’s natural healing ability, which aligns well with those who prefer a holistic approach.

    One of the things that stands out about Dr. Norwood is his dedication to promoting overall wellness by addressing the root cause of symptoms. He does not simply mask the symptoms with medication but works to remove disruptions to the self-healing process.

    We typically prefer a holistic approach to healthcare, so this really resonates with us. It might be for you as well if you want something that deals with overall bodily health as a whole. 

    On the downside, booking an appointment with Dr. Norwood can be a bit tricky, as he’s in high demand and tends to book up quickly. Pro-tip, it’s recommended to call his office as soon as possible or book online well in advance.

    Lastly, if you’re visiting Tauranga from out of town, Dr. Blair Norwood of Chiropractic House might be your best bet. It’s just there are plenty of great accommodation options in the area, so the location is a pretty nice stop.

    Customer Reviews

    Skilled and experienced

    Very professional service. Always welcomed by name and with a smile.  Dr Blair kept me up and running while I waited for my hip operation. The hip surgeon couldn’t believe I could still walk up the Mount days before my surgery with the way my hip was. I credit this to Dr Blairs skill and experience. I’m looking forward to going back in a few weeks when I’m comfortable with my new hip! Thanks Chiropractic House – cracken on

    Friendly, professional service

    When you walk (or limp) in the door you are always greeted by name and a warm friendly smile. Last year one of my goals was to be able to walk up the mountain again, at that stage I could not walk far without pain. This year I’ve walked up nearly every week. Still hurts, but not as much and the recovery is much better.  Blair knows that real life isn’t perfect and can be hard on bodies. He helps to prevent, repair, and restore the balance. – Kirstan M
