What is Chiropractic?

 

Chiropractic is a primary health care profession (you don’t need a referral to see a chiropractor).​

 

Chiropractors are trained to diagnose, treat, manage and prevent disorders of the musculoskeletal system, as well as their effects on the nervous system and your general health.

 

Treatment involves safe, gentle specific manipulation to free joints in the spine and other areas of the body that are not moving properly. In addition to manipulation, chiropractors may use a variety of techniques including massage, muscle stretching techniques as well as giving advice about posture and lifestyle.

 

Although back and neck pains are the most commonly treated conditions, patients also consult chiropractors with a range of other problems, such as:

 

  • Shoulder (Pain and restricted ROM) 

  • Rib Pain

  • Elbow (Tennis, Golfers elbow)

  • Arm pains (Radicular/Nerve root pain)

  • Wrist (Tendonopathy)

  • Hip or Knee (Osteoarthritis)

  • Foot/ankle (Sprain/Strain, Planta fasciitis)

  • Headaches (Cervicogenic, Migraines)

  • Dizziness
