WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC CARE
Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine and pelvis, but not exclusively) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system of the body) and how that relationship affects muscles, ligaments, tendons, joint structures and the restoration of health in general.
A Chiropractor is a professional health care provider, who is required to study at least 5 years at University level and upon completion of their studies be registered with a governing body, such as the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). Chiropractic training includes the extensive study of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, orthopaedic and neurological assessment, diagnostic examination, radiology, rehabilitation, acute musculoskeletal management as well as the distinctive approaches to care and treatment that make chiropractic different from other musculoskeletal care providers.
HOW IT WORKS
Chiropractors may effectively correct spinal and joint problems with gentle spinal adjustments performed by hand or by specialized instruments (e.g. Activator, Drop Piece, Blocks). These specific corrective procedures help to realign the body and enhance muscular balance, thus promoting ideal nervous system function and contributing to optimal whole body health. At Fairfield Chiropractic Clinic, our practioners may help you identify your health goals and assist in activity modification and pain management strategies.
WHO WE TREAT
Chiropractic care may help patients of all ages (2 years +), from children to seniors, athletes and specific conditions (listed in CONDITIONS WE TREAT). Many patients with complex health issues present to chiropractors and require the care of more than one health practitioner to assist them. Chiropractors may assist with many of the musculoskeletal issues in those with complex disorders. All of Fairfield Chiropractic Clinic’s chiropractors work willingly and alongside with other health care providers of our patients to assist them to take control of and improve their health and well-being.
