Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care has been one of the leading choices of people around the world for back and neck related pain.

Chiropractic care was first founded in 1895 by DD Palmer, and is the fastest growing profession in the world.

The Australian Chiropractic Association, reported than on average 300,000 people visit a Chiropractor each week, with 30,000 of those visits being for children! (1)

Chiropractic care involves high velocity, low amplitude (or fast, quick movements) to the spine and joints to help realign and alter the nervous system function.

Chiropractic care is often sought after for pain relief from a range of conditions such as:

  • Back Pain
  • Neck Pain
  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Sciatica
  • And more!

Despite many people seeing a Chiropractor for pain relief, the ongoing benefits are often reported in reducing the number of days of pain, a recent study in Norway showed a vast difference in choosing Chiropractic care for maintenance once out of lower back pain, compared to seeking for pain relief only.

When should you see a Chiropractor?

There are two types of patients Chiropractors see, acute and chronic.

Acute patients are people that have just started getting pain, this can occur in any area from your neck down to your toes. To be defined as an acute patient, it typically means the pain has been around for less than 48hours.

In many cases, acute pain can be worse, but is often much easier to reduce than chronic pain.

Chronic pain is defined as pain that has been around for greater than 3months. Chronic pain is often debilitating, in some cases it may vary in intensity, or come and go depending on what activity the patient is choosing.

In our experience, Chronic pain can typically take longer to mend, due to the body compensating and changing how it functions alongside the pain

Our team of Chiropractors are experienced in managing both Chronic and Acute patients, and have helped over 5000 people around Australia with there pain.
