Benefits of Chiropractic Health Care
Research has established that patients under Chiropractic Care can reduce their use of harmful medications, experience less admissions to hospitals and can prolong their life outside of nursing homes with an increase in immune system health. Chiropractic care has been proven to offer substantial relief to many painful conditions including headaches/migraines, back and neck pain, knee pain, sciatica, sports injuries and body trauma from accidents to name just a few.

Who can see a chiropractor?
Chiropractors treat all demographics including babies, infants, adults, athletes and the elderly. You do not need to obtain a referral from a GP to see a chiropractor. Chiropractors are primary health practitioners who are fully qualified to diagnose your condition.

Is Chiropractic Care Safe?
Chiropractic is a natural approach to health that avoids invasive procedures and addictive drugs, it has an excellent safety record with historical evidence to back this. Studies have shown that chiropractic care is 250 times safer than a prescription of anti-inflammatory drugs. Yet unfortunately our society is encouraged to mask symptoms with harmful medications instead of seeking out holistic therapies to find a cure. Chiropractic care treats the cause and prevents the recurrence and/or frequency of pain getting you back to being the absolute best you can be. This is far safer than masking symptoms with pain relief and allowing the condition to exacerbate.
In Australia, Chiropractors are required to adhere to strict and extensive educational requirements and standards to become (and to remain) registered health professionals. Chiropractors are five year university trained, government regulated and government registered healthcare professionals who are fully insured. The Australian Government has established a chiropractic regulating authority to ensure increased public safety for the Australian population.

Chiropractic deals with the bodies nervous system.
What chiropractors look for are areas of nerve damage, nerve compression or nerve irritation, which may manifest symptoms of pain, headaches, muscle spasm, stiffness, numbness, burning, pins and needles (the list goes on!).
We then trace those symptoms back to the spine to determine whether the nerve irritation is resulting from the hard bony bits of the spine pressing on the soft tissues next to the spine ( ie; nerves ).
Chiropractors then, using a variety of manual techniques relieve those parts of the joint and in effect restore function to the irritated nerve ending. Once this is achieved the unblocked nerve pathway then allows the muscles of the body relax! Thus you feel better!!!
