What Is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic care aims to restore and preserve a good state of health in a natural and drug free way focused on the analysis and correction of the neuromusculoskeletal system.
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 these 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."
Chiropractors have 5 years of university education, which focuses on understanding the function of the spine and nervous system.
Who Do We Look After?
We happily accept new patients of all types with various health statuses; from children and infants, pregnant women and athletes with sports injuries, to people who just want to maintain general health and wellbeing. Being healthy and stress free is the goal we share with our patients at any age.
Based in Fitzroy North, we are ideally located for treating people in Fitzroy, Carlton, North Melbourne, Collingwood, Clifton Hill, Princes Hill, Parkville, Brunswick East and Northcote areas.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care
There are many benefits to chiropractic care that can help you live your life free of health problems. Here are just some of the known benefits of chiropractic:
Both tension headaches and migraines can result from the abnormal positioning of the head and can be made worse from neck pressure and movement. Chiropractic care can deal with the cause of the pain.
Reduce Acute and Chronic Pain
Chronic neck and back pain are a common problem among Australian workers in not only jobs that are physically demanding, but also immobile office desk jobs. Visiting a chiropractor can help you manage or even resolve the source of pain.
Alleviate Sports Injuries
Recover quicker from sports injuries and make sure musculoskeletal misalignments are not impeding your athletic abilities. Our Chiropractors can treat most sports injuries such as tennis elbow, joint issues and pelvic problems.
Benefits During Pregnancy
A Chiropractor can be valuable to making a woman’s pregnancy as comfortable as possible. Changing weight distribution during pregnancy can cause back and neck pain. The main focus of a Chiropractor for pregnant women is balancing the pelvis to prevent or treat pain.
Benefits for Children
With growing bodies, we need to be careful that children’s bones and joints are growing the way they should be, preventing future long-term discomfort from disease. Finding and treating musculoskeletal problems early in life can make a lasting positive difference.
Wellness and Disease Prevention
Treating conditions and diseases at their underlying cause is what Chiropractors seek to focus on. Recognised techniques and spinal adjustments can alleviate neuromusculoskeletal symptoms or prevent them from developing.
