Chiropractic deals primarily with disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. Doctors of chiropractic (also called Chiropractors) most commonly provide treatment for

  • Neuromusculoskeletal ailments such as back and neck pain
  • Issues with pain in the joints of the extremities
  • Headaches.

More than 21.3 million Australians are treated each year by Chiropractors, with treatment being generally hands-on and relying heavily on the spinal manual procedures, more commonly known as the chiropractic adjustment.

There are many ways to adjust the spine and joints. Chiropractors may use their hands; or have the aid of special adjusting tables; or have you lie on pelvic blocks; or use specialised hand held instruments. 

After years of university training and clinical experience, each chiropractor becomes highly skilled in the delivery of a variety of adjusting approaches.

Which chiropractic technique chosen is dependent on your individual circumstances - an elderly woman, an elite footballer and a baby will obviously require very different approaches.
