Chiropractic

What is Chiropractic?

The World Health Organisation defines chiropractic as:

A health care profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system and the effects of these disorders on general health. There is an emphasis on manual techniques, including joint adjustment and/or manipulation with a particular focus on subluxations.”

 

Essentially, Chiropractic seeks whole-person care and relies on the body’s natural ability to heal itself.

Chiropractors have 5 years of university education, and are government registered and regulated health professionals committed to ensuring evidence-informed care is provided to patients.

Our Approach

Our chiropractors take a holistic approach when analysing and correcting structural problems of the spine, examining the pelvis through to the skull (cranial bones) inclusive of the jaw, the upper and lower limbs. We also consider the potential effects of the organ systems on the spine and structural system via a thorough organ systems review.

The way that your spine and body compensate tells the story of your life. Spinal health problems tend not to occur in isolation. That’s why it is so important to look at the whole person, including lifestyle and work patterns.

Chiropractic Techniques

Our chiropractors combine traditional chiropractic methods with the latest scientific research and technology to provide you with quality, well-informed chiropractic care.

With over 20 years of experience, our chiropractors have refined their skills and adapt adjustments to individual needs. For example, a front row rugby player with back pain would be adjusted differently to a child or elderly person. There are multiple ways to adjust a person’s spine, so we work with you to see what suits you best.

Diversified

Diversified technique is probably the most common chiropractic technique taught at universities and colleges around the world. It is a manual hands-on adjusting technique, and typically produces a ‘popping’ sound with movement, known scientifically as ‘cavitation’.

Impulse Adjusting Instrument

The Impulse Adjusting Instrument used in our office is an advanced technology to assist in the delivery of chiropractic adjustments.

It can provide an alternative to the ‘hands on approach’ while still achieving a similar clinical result.(1)

The Impulse Adjusting Instrument is patented and registered with the Therapeutic Goods Administration of Australia (TGA). It has been specifically created to deliver precise chiropractic adjustments to the joints of the spine and extremities. The Impulse Adjusting Instrument is controlled by high-tech micro-computer circuitry housed within the device that produces a controlled force used by chiropractors to treat different areas of the body.
