My Chiropractor referred me to AECC a few years back for an ultrasound scan. Thanks to them, I was finally able to get my GP to listen when I repeatedly said something wasn't right with my hip. X-rays, MRI, CT, Physiotherapy and a referral to a specialist all happened thanks to that initial scan at AECC
