What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. The brain, spinal cord and all the nerves of the body control these important functions. The skull protects the delicate tissue of the brain. The moving bones of the spine protect the vulnerable communication pathways of the spinal cord and nerve roots. If the nervous system is impaired, it can cause a malfunction of the tissues and the organs throughout the body. Chiropractors refer to this as a vertebral subluxation complex. The vertebrae are the spinal bones. Subluxation means the spinal bone is not moving as it should. The complex refers to the effects on the surrounding tissue, for example inflammation or tightness in the muscles.

What does a chiropractor do?

A chiropractor is a health care provider who gives special attention to spinal mechanics, musculoskeletal and neurological relationships of the body. A chiropractor must be able to carefully diagnose, evaluate and deliver the proper care so that the body regains and maintains health.

Chiropractic and Sports

Sports Chiropractic is a specialty area within chiropractic. To practice as a Sports Chiropractor requires the chiropractor to undertake additional post-graduate qualifications in sports injury management. The additional study allows the Sports Chiropractor to draw from a greater set of tools when assessing and treating an athlete in all areas of the body, not just the spine. Although our specialist training equips us well for sporting injuries, the same treatment approach is extremely effective on non-sporting injuries. Sports chiropractic follows current best practice guidelines in injury evaluation and management, including functional movement evaluation that has been developed to identify underlying causes and tailor the most effective treatment options to the individual.
