WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC CARE?
Chiropractic is a form of manual medicine that involves gentle hands-on treatment to bring about pain relief, alignment and freedom of movement. Using skilled evaluation, diagnosis and a wide range of hands-on techniques, Chiropractors can identify areas of dysfunction in your body.
The basic principle of chiropractic is that changes to the normal structure and function of the skeleton and its supporting structures such as the muscles can produce effects not just in those areas, but in other areas of the body and health in general. While the focus has been on the spine, chiropractors view all of the joints, surrounding muscles and nerves as potential sources of problems.
All of the Chiropractors at our clinic have completed at least 5 years of University training to become registered Chiropractors.
Chiropractors use a wide variety of techniques including soft tissue massage, joint mobilisation, adjustments, stretching and gentle joint manipulation where appropriate to treat the muscles, joints, ligaments and connective tissues of the body.
