Chiropractic

Various physical, emotional and chemical stressors in our lives can disrupt the ability of the nervous system to perform at its best.

If your nervous system is not functioning correctly, you will experience this in the form of an interruption to the way that you would normally feel day to day. Any of your body’s normal functions can be interrupted, and can result in issues such as injury to indigestion, mood changes, sleeping difficulties, reduced sporting performance and poor concentration.

Considering that the spine, pelvis and skull house the spinal cord and brain, it is imperative that your spine is well looked after, and maintains correct alignment. In addition, the joints of the spine are rich in nerve cells called ‘proprioceptors’, which play a significant role in maintaining the normal function of your brain. Interference with the spinal joints and subsequent disruption to these proprioceptors can have consequences such as delayed neurological development, dizziness/balance issues, spatial awareness problems and increased stress levels.

Chiropractors focus on the removal of these problematic areas to improve the function of your spine and nervous system, ultimately enhancing your overall health and wellbeing.
After a complete and thorough evaluation, we will have a detailed understanding of your problem. It is then possible to provide a specific, accurate and precise correction. The focus is to adjust the segments that are the cause of your problem.

Chiropractic in Australia

There are over 215,000 consultations to Australian chiropractors each week.

Australian chiropractors are five year university trained, and are government registered and regulated health professionals.

Chiropractors are the spinal health experts. Through their extensive five year university training, chiropractors are uniquely positioned to help Australians lead healthy lifestyles through drug-free care.

Chiropractic is a health care discipline based on the scientific premise that the body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. These important functions are controlled by the brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of the body. “Chiropractic” comes from the Greek word Chiropraktikos, meaning “done by hand.”

The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine, and pelvis) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.

The skull protects the delicate tissues of the brain. The moving bones of the spine protect the intricate communication pathways of the spinal cord and nerve roots. If these nervous system pathways are impaired, malfunction of the tissue and organ function throughout the body can result.

Chiropractic also places an emphasis on nutrition and exercise, wellness and healthy lifestyle modifications.

Defining Wellness

The CAA uses the following definition of wellness:

“Wellness is a lifelong process of assuming personal responsibility that empowers the individual to exercise choice, make informed decisions and take action towards a more balanced, dynamically sustainable and fulfilling existence in all dimensions of life.”
