Chiropractic is a health care discipline which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery.
The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health. In addition, Doctors of Chiropractic recognise the value and responsibility of working in cooperation 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. Referral is made if more specialised, concurrent or alternative treatment is warranted.
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, muscular and general healing 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 help to realign the body and enhance muscular balance, thus promoting proper nervous system function and contributing to optimal whole body health. Many chiropractors focus on children, seniors, athletes or specific conditions like scoliosis and areas such as the upper spine or pelvis
Chiropractors enhance your body's natural ability to repair itself without the use of drugs or surgery, wherever possible.
Chiropractic care may also involve other natural forms of health care including stretching and exercise programs, nutritional advice, home care, ergonomic and postural advice, lifestyle and health education information.
