Never been to a chiropractor before?
Wondering what chiropractors do and what they treat? Not to worry we are here to fill you in and get you up to speed!
Chiropractic is a form of physical therapy that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous system. Practitioners treat patients with a hands-on, drug-free approach to improve the patient’s health and overall function.
Chiropractors are professional health care providers who have undertaken at least 5 years of university training. The curriculum at university has a heavy focus on anatomy, biomechanics, orthopedics, physiology, nutrition, injury rehabilitation and radiology.
At Dee Why Chiropractic Care:
Our chiropractors use an evidence-based approach to treating disorders such as neck and back pain, headache and sports injuries. We utilise orthopedic, neurological and functional testing to accurately diagnose the source of your pain. We then implement soft tissue techniques such as muscle releases, dry needling and stretches to relieve areas of muscle spasm and tension followed by a chiropractic adjustment.
What is a chiropractic adjustment?
- A chiropractic adjustment comprises of a gentle force applied to a region of the spine with a specific purpose to increase range of motion, reduce nerve irritability and improve function.
- Specific adjustments are performed, depending on the practitioner’s findings.
- The procedure is usually painless and commonly referred to as relieving.
Your care does not stop when you leave our office. We want to form a team bond with our patients to get you better and keep it that way. We prescribe specific rehabilitation exercises when necessary and encourage preventative strategies to minimise the chance of re-injury and maximise your quality of life.
