Chiropractors are the spinal health care experts.
As described by The Chiropractors Association of Australia (CAA): Chiropractic is a drug and surgery free form of primary health care that is concerned with the diagnosis, management and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system; this includes the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health. Underlying our practice is the premise that the body can respond appropriately to its environment provided that the nervous system is free of interference.
Chiropractors aim to improve nervous system function primarily through Chiropractic adjustments (paying particular attention to the spine, skull and pelvis), in order to help remove any interference that may be impairing your bodies ability to express “normal health”.
Some common reasons people may seek advice or request Chiropractic care include :
- Musculoskeletal injuries
- Back pain
- Pregnancy pains
- Neck pain
- Lower back pain
- Disc injuries
- Rib pain
- Recurrent sports injuries
It is our role as Chiropractors to thoroughly look into your presenting history, perform specific orthopaedic, neurological, biomechanical assessments and arrange other specialised tests if needed (X-ray, MRI, medical consult etc.) in order to offer you an accurate diagnosis and direct you with the appropriate health care management plan.
We provide patient-centred care, and approach your treatment as an individual. Tailoring your adjustments (and other treatment modalities) and schedule of care to suit your body and its specific needs. No two bodies are the same, therefore no two treatment programs should be the same.
Our Chiropractors, allied therapists, and staff have undergone, and continue to attend, many postgraduate seminars and conferences allowing us to keep up to date with the latest techniques and developments within our profession, as well as ensure we maintain the highest levels of skills in all aspects of Chiropractic management. Our established standard of care means that you will receive detailed explanations and recommendations, appropriate rehabilitation exercises to retrain and promote long term stability, along with nutritional and lifestyle advice where needed, aimed at empowering you in the management of your own health.
