Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care has been one of the leading choices of people around the world with pain – whether that be back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, sciatica, headaches or a bulging disc.

Chiropractic was founded in 1895 by DD Palmer, and is one of the fastest growing professions in the world. Chiropractic care involves high velocity, low amplitude (or fast, quick movements) to the spine and joins to help realign and alter the function of the nervous system.

The Australian Chiropractic Association reported that, on average, 300,000 people visit a Chiropractor each week, with 30,000 of those visits being children! 

The benefits of Chiropractic care are often reported, including a reduction in days of pain experienced. A recent study in Norway showed a vast difference in individuals choosing Chiropractic for maintenance once they are no longer experiencing back pain, compared to those seeing a Chiropractor for pain relief only 

Chiropractic education and techniques used to provide Chiropractic care  

All Australian-graduated Chiropractors undertake five years of university training and are governed by the Australia Health Practitioners Regulatory Body. During study, Chiropractors learn extensively about neurology, physiology, anatomy, mechanics of the spine and body, pathology, pathophysiology and more. They undergo a rigorous protocol, learning the most evidence based practice.

Our Chiropractors are also highly proficient in traditional Chiropractic techniques, including Diversified Chiropractic technique, Gonstead, Sacro Occipital technique (SOT) , the Activator method and more.

When should you see a Chiropractor? 

There are two types of patients Chiropractors see – acute and chronic. 

Acute patients are people who have just started experiencing pain – this pain can occur from any area from your neck down to your toes. Acute pain can be considered pain that a person has been experiencing for less than 48 hours. In many cases, acute pain can be worse, but it is often much easier to reduce than chronic pain.

Chronic pain can be defined as pain that has been experienced for greater than 3 months. Chronic pain often reduces a person’s endurance and energy. Course and intensity can vary depending on what activity a person is performing. Normally chronic pain takes longer to improve due to the time needed to change those existing compensation other body parts are undergoing.
