Understanding your needs

Dr Kimberly Pugh has been a chiropractor in Kerikeri since 2017, and has over 12 years of experience. At Breathe Chiropractic, we work with individuals and families to assist with wellness, helping to restore energy for a happy, fulfilling, active lifestyle.

Chiropractic treatments are gentle, safe and effective for all ages.

As your chiropractor in Kerikeri, we take a holistic view to our work: it’s all about understanding your problem and providing a tailored treatment. 

At your first appointment, we will assess you through a mixture of muscle testing, functional orthopaedic tests, as well as checking your mobility to gauge issues and diagnose your condition. 

This allows us to create a personalised treatment plan for you. The treatment plan outlines the techniques we will use, and how many sessions are likely to be needed to achieve your goals.

It’s all about improving function, flexibility, and mobility, whether you’ve got a new sports injury or a chronic pain condition. 

Some of the most common issues are listed below – if you can’t see your condition, please do contact our Kerikeri chiropractic clinic to see if we can help you.

I have a 'difficult' back, and have tried a lot of different things to help it be less painful and some have helped a little bit, but not until I started seeing Kim and she worked her magic did it become totally bearable and so much less painful. I think Kim is amazing, I recommend her to everyone!

Dr Kim is absolutely fantastic, I saw her through my whole pregnancy and she made a huge difference in my sciatica pain and just general pregnancy ouchies. She always takes the time to make sure your body is getting exactly what it needs and always has time for a yarn while you're there. Cant reccomend her enough
