It is the most popular drug and surgery free health care system in the world, and is integrated with other professional health care providers in Australia, where nearly 200,000 patient visits to Chiropractors each week.
The primary function of chiropractic is to identify and correct problems in your spine and nervous system that may be the cause of your symptoms. Symptoms can include nerve irritation, leading to pain, stiffness, fatigue and general ill health. Chiropractors are trained to investigate these symptoms using a wide variety of diagnostic tools, including the use of x-rays.
Chiropractors use a combination of hands-on physical therapy (called adjusting) and exercises, to mobilise joints and improve your posture. This has the effect of reducing pain, fatigue and injuries. Recently, new techniques have been developed to restore the natural alignment of your spine, allowing years of poor posture and chronic problems to be corrected. So you feel better, look better and move better!
