What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is based upon the understanding that good health depends, in part, upon a normally functioning nervous system. 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 may influence the function of the nervous system.
Chiropractors aim to improve the function of the nervous system through chiropractic adjustments to the spine, skull and pelvis to help remove any interference. Chiropractic also places an emphasis on nutrition and exercise, wellness and healthy lifestyle modifications.
What do Chiropractors do?
Helping to restore proper spinal biomechanics begins with a patient’s case history. This gives the chiropractor a background about your health, such as the onset of your condition, previous surgeries, accidents and other details affecting your current health.
After reviewing your history and discussing your specific problem, a thorough orthopaedic, neurological, and chiropractic examination is performed. X-rays may be taken to identify structural and functioning problems associated with the spinal column.
These examinations help identify areas of spinal malfunction and resulting nervous system dysfunction. The findings of these examinations are explained and a plan of chiropractic adjustments may be recommended. Progress is monitored with periodical examinations and follow-up reports.
Where do Chiropractors fit in the Australian Healthcare system?
All healthcare interventions carry a level of risk and treatment will be informed by evidence, clinician experience and patient participation. There is significant review and reform occurring in Australia to ensure that patients receive appropriate care, utilising effective treatments and underpinned by exemplary conduct.
There are examples in all healthcare modalities where treatment choice, effectiveness and conduct are not optimal, it is not just about chiropractors and chiropractic, and all professions are experiencing change. What remains clear about chiropractic is that it is a safe and effective modality of treatment for Australians.
How does Chiropractic help certain conditions?
Chiropractic treatment actively manoeuvres joints in the body to the normal range of movement, relieving pressure and minimising the possibility of damage or abnormal motion of the joint.
