What is chiropractic
A chiropractor is a primary health care professional (which means that you can visit a chiropractor without a referral from a doctor).
The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationships in the body between structure and function. Chiropractic treatment works by using gentle adjustments to stimulate control centres of the spinal cord and nervous system to improve joint alignment and spinal control. The term ‘chiropractic’ is a general term which means literally translated from latin means, ‘practice with the hands’. The term refers to a wide variety of different techniques utilized by these practitioners to restore normal biomechanics and therefore function to joints in the body. All registered chiropractors are university trained.
Spinal misalignments that are left untreated can cause an imbalance of muscle surrounding the spine. Over long periods of time this spinal imbalance can cause a weakening of the spinal joint and this is what leads to degeneration and arthritis which leads to pain and stiffness. Chiropractic treatment is a very effective way to prevent this cascade of events from occurring.
What will your consultation consist of?
- A detailed medical history
- An xray referral
- A detailed physical examination
- A spinal and postural assessment
- An agreed program of treatment
- Exercise prescription
Our chiropractors place a very high priority on prevention and wellness and like to focus on educating their patients to this end. They believe that general health and structural health requires ongoing maintenance. This in itself can prevent or diminish much of the wear and tear associated with growing older. Therefore restoring spinal health and body mechanics safely and effectively is a compelling goal of all chiropractors.
Rebates are available through all Health Funds and in some cases Medicare covers for chiropractic treatment.
