What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a healing art which has been practised for over a century using only the skills of our hands as the tools for treatment. Chiropractic is the third largest branch of healthcare in the western world behind medicine and dentistry.
Chiropractors are neuromuscular-skeletal specialists and as such, assess, diagnose and treat conditions of the joints, muscles and nervous system. The majority of conditions are the result of mechanical stresses applied to the body through normal activities of daily living, poor posture and progressive wear and tear as the body naturally ages.
Our treatment consists of a wide variety of manipulative techniques designed to improve function and range of motion of the joints to relieve pain and muscle spasm.
All our chiropractors tailor their treatments to patient’s individual requirements with respect to: the condition, age, size, additional medical disorders, and personal preferences. No two people are the same, therefore we rely on multiple treatment techniques to provide the most suitable care for our patient’s needs.
