Chiropractic Care

About

The third largest healthcare profession in the world- Chiropractic is a safe and effective affordable approach to treatment that utilises the body’s innate ability to heal itself. A primary approach of chiropractic care includes specific spinal adjustments that have a direct impact on the nervous system, improving overall health and performance.

The causes of spinal subluxations include accidents, injuries, as well as common daily tasks such as sitting at a desk or repetitive bending and lifting with poor posture. Stress and chemical stress is also a cause or contributing factor.

Subluxation has a detrimental effect on muscle and brain function and human health. Having your spine adjusted by a chiropractor will improve these.

Across the US and Canada, Chiropractors are commonly established in hospitals. Successful organisations such as Facebook and Google retain chiropractors on staff for the benefit of their employees.

Benefits

Chiropractors must complete a five-year university degree and as such, are primary health care providers. This means that like your general practitioner (G.P.) they have comprehensive knowledge of all systems of the body and diagnostic procedures. This enables your chiropractor to thoroughly evaluate a patient and address disorders relating to the spine and nervous system. This includes back pain, neck pain, headaches, migraines, whiplash, concussion, dizziness, vertigo to name a few.

Due to its effectiveness and safety, chiropractic is covered under ACC and many insurance plans.
