How can a Chiropractor help?

A chiropractor offers holistic care for musculoskeletal conditions, using highly researched techniques to alleviate neck, shoulder, and nerve pain.

Spinal & Neuromuscular Assessments

This is the starting point for all our consults. Identifying mobility issues or dysfunction by assessing your spine and integrating the information you provide. We may perform orthopaedic testing or utilise the Thompson techniques as part of this process (testing leg lengths).

Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments or manipulation can support your joints in returning to the optimal position and function to decrease pain and move better. We also offer the sacro-occipital technique, a protocol for patients who do not want to be manually adjusted.

Soft Tissue Therapy

It’s common to feel muscle tightness when our skeletal structure isn’t moving correctly. The sensation of tension and tightness comes from either over or under-activation of the surrounding muscles. In chiropractic treatment, we often combine adjustments with soft tissue therapy and techniques to encourage muscles to relax.

Exercise Prescription & Supervision

Chiropractic treatments are only one aspect of supporting good spinal health and mobility. By performing corrective exercises, you can expect a reduction in pain and tension, as well as improved movement and overall function. We will show you how to exercise with programs tailored specifically to you and your goals.

    A chiropractic adjustment involves precisely applying a specific force in a targeted direction to a spinal joint that is restricted or not moving properly. This adjustment aims to enhance or restore movement in the joint, thereby contributing to the spine’s gradual return to more normal motion and functionality.

    Chiropractors utilise various techniques to adjust the spine. These adjustments are typically made using the hands or a specially designed instrument to deliver a quick, accurate thrust. Some methods are fast-paced, while others involve slow, steady, or indirect pressure.

    These adjustments can improve spinal function and enhance mobility, vitality, and endurance.

    Most individuals find chiropractic adjustments to be a relaxing experience, and any minor discomfort following an adjustment is uncommon. You might notice a popping sound from your spinal joints during some adjustments. This sound is a normal response to the change in pressure in the joint as it moves more freely.

    Chiropractors may employ various tools and techniques, such as hand-held instruments or alignment aids like wedges or blocks, to facilitate the adjustment process. Regardless of the method used, chiropractors prioritise skilful, precise application over brute force or strength, ensuring safety and effectiveness in their care.

    Chiropractic care focuses on the application of skilled techniques, relying on precision rather than physical force or strength for chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractors often employ a variety of manual therapies and gentle, low force interventions tailored to individual needs.

    The risk associated with chiropractic treatments is considerably low, particularly when contrasted with more invasive spinal healthcare procedures. Nevertheless, like any form of treatment, chiropractic care may carry potential for adverse reactions in certain individuals.

    Chiropractic care primarily involves adjustments to align the spine and improve bodily function. Physical therapy focuses on improving movement, strength, and mobility through exercises and rehabilitation.

    Chiropractors commonly treat conditions related to the spine, including lower back pain, neck pain, and headaches. They also address joint, muscle, and connective tissue issues, often resulting from sports injuries, accidents, or muscle strains.

    1. Education: Chiropractors in Australia must complete a university-level educational program. This typically involves a five-year chiropractic program. The first three years usually consist of a bachelor’s degree in health science and a two-year Master’s degree in chiropractic. Some universities may offer a double degree program combining undergraduate and postgraduate studies into a five-year course.
    2. Accreditation: The chiropractic program must be accredited by the Chiropractic Board of Australia, which sets the standards for chiropractic education and training in Australia.
    3. Registration: After completing their educational qualifications, chiropractors must be registered with the Chiropractic Board of Australia before they can practice. The board is part of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), which regulates all health practitioners in Australia.
    4. Continuing Professional Development: Registered chiropractors must undertake continuing professional development (CPD) to maintain their registration. This ensures that they stay current with the latest knowledge and skills in their field.
