What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system. Chiropractic services are used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches without the use of drugs or surgery.
In addition, Doctors of Chiropractic recognise the value and responsibility of working collaboratively with other health care practitioners when in the best interest of the patient.
A full history and examination is conducted and options are provided for optimal personalised care.
Patient-centered, evidence based family care is the primary focus. Specific focus is on spinal structure and function and its effects on the other joints, nervous and muscular systems of the body.
Chiropractors effectively correct spinal and joint problems with gentle spinal adjustments performed by hand or by specialised instruments. These specific corrective procedures may help to realign the body and enhance muscular balance, thus promoting proper nervous system function which may in-turn contribute to improved perceptions of health and wellness. Many chiropractors focus on children, seniors, athletes or specific spinal conditions.
Chiropractic care may also involve other natural forms of health care including sleep posture and sleep support recommendations, stretching and exercise programs, nutritional advice, home care, ergonomic and postural advice, and lifestyle and health education information.
In Australia, chiropractors are educated in the University sector at an under-graduate and post-graduate level and there is a growing research and evidence base not only in Australia but through international federations. As with other healthcare professions, there are internationally and nationally recognised standards of qualification to enable practice in Australia and this is part of the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme.
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.
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.
