What is chiropractic care?
Chiropractors are leaders in spinal health. Chiropractic care is skilled, hands on treatment that relieves pain and works towards your body being its best.
Chiropractors provide specialised treatment which focuses on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of conditions and injuries related to the spine, muscle and nervous system.
What does chiropractic treatment involve?
Chiropractors use a variety of non surgical techniques such as spinal adjustments and manual therapy to relieve pain and improve function.
Specific training in spinal manipulative therapy allows chiropractors to provide adjustments using highly skilled and precise movements to the vertebrae of the spine, correcting joint motion to restore proper movement and function.
In addition to spinal manipulation, chiropractors may also use techniques such as:
- soft tissue therapy
- exercise rehabilitation
- modalities (such as cold laser therapy)
- muscle stretching procedures
- flexion distraction therapy.
