Back, neck, arm, leg pain or headaches are commonplace & just about everyone has sought relief from a Chiropractor or knows someone who has. In fact research shows that Chiropractic care is more effective & economical, delivering lasting results for spine disorders than other forms of health care. Thank goodness for that!
Chiropractors are spinal health experts who aim to improve nervous system function by way of “adjustments” that remove interference impacting normal health. They use skill, not strength when practising their science & an adjustment adds motion to the joint, helping it gradually regain normal motion & function. It’s safe & natural. The burning question for most is, “Will it hurt?” The answer is: “Not at all.” Most clients find adjustments relaxing. You may hear a pop, but that’s simply gas releasing from the joint.
You’ll begin your initial appointment by talking about your history – everything from surgeries, accidents, your condition & any other details relevant to your current state of health. Next your Chiropractor will review your history & talk to you about your specific problem. Then a through orthopaedic, neurological & chiropractic examination is performed. You may need an x-ray to uncover structural or functional issues associated with your spinal column. Finally a plan of Chiropractic adjustments may be recommended with progress monitored with additional examinations. Most people can expect some benefits shortly after beginning care.
So if you’ve been living with pain, talk to one of our Chiropractors today. They may be able to help.
The roots of Chiropractic care can be traced all the way back to the beginning of recorded time. Writings from China & Greece written in 2700 B.C. and 1500 B.C. mention spinal manipulation & the maneuvering of the lower extremities to ease low back pain. Hippocrates, the Greek physician, who lived from 460 to 357 B.C., also published texts detailing the importance of chiropractic care. In one of his writings he declares, "Get knowledge of the spine, for this is the requisite for many diseases".
Research supports the use of Chiropractic for a range of disorders, including:
Lower back pain
Problems with posture
Sciatica (shooting pains in the leg)
Problems with other joints such as the knees, shoulders, feet & hands.
Australian Chiropractors are five year university trained & are government registered & government regulated health professionals. They are required to adhere to strict & extensive educational requirements & standards to become registered health professionals in Australia.
Chiropractic is based upon the understanding that good health depends, in part, upon a normally functioning nervous system.
Chiropractic works by helping to restore your own inborn ability to be healthy. When under the proper control of your nervous system, all the cells, tissue & organs of your body are designed to function well & resist disease & ill health. The chiropractic approach to better health is to locate & help reduce interferences to your natural state of being healthy.
A common interference to the nervous system is the twenty four moving bones of the spinal column. A loss of normal motion or position of these bones can irritate or impair the function of the nervous system. This can disrupt the transmission of controlling nerve impulses.
Chiropractors aim to improve nervous system function primarily through chiropractic adjustments (with particular attention to the spine, skull and pelvis), to help remove any interference that may be impairing normal health.
