Understanding chiropractic care

Welcome to Movement Chiropractic! We’re delighted to introduce you to chiropractic care, a holistic approach to health that focuses on maintaining your body’s balance and well-being.

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a form of healthcare that centers on the body’s structure, primarily the spine. Chiropractors manipulate the body’s alignment to relieve pain, improve function, and support the body’s natural ability to heal itself. 

Unlike many forms of conventional medicine, chiropractic care does not rely on medications or invasive procedures.

In Australia, chiropractors are allied health professionals and primary health care practitioners. We are nationally registered healthcare workers and can form part of your allied health team.

How Does Chiropractic Work?

At the core of chiropractic care is the belief that the body has a remarkable, inherent ability to heal itself. 

The spine, a central part of your nervous system, influences every part of your body. 

Misalignments in the spine can disrupt this system, leading to pain, dysfunction, and reduced overall health. 

Chiropractic care aims to correct these misalignments, restoring the body to its natural state of health and harmony.

What is an Adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment, or spinal manipulation, is a common therapeutic treatment. 

During an adjustment, the chiropractor uses their hands or a small instrument to apply a controlled, sudden force to a spinal joint. The goal is to improve spinal motion, physical function of the body, and relieve pressure on the nerves.

What About X-ray Imaging?

At Movement Chiropractic, we believe in providing you with the best care possible, and that includes having in-house diagnostic imaging like X-rays. 

This means you won’t have to go to multiple places for your healthcare needs. Our warm and friendly team is dedicated to your well-being, and having X-ray capabilities on-site allows us to get a clear picture of your spine and overall health quickly and efficiently. 

This means faster and more accurate diagnoses, leading to more effective treatments and a smoother road to recovery. With our commitment to your comfort and convenience, you can trust us to provide the highest level of care right here at our clinic.

X-rays are generally considered safe when used appropriately and with necessary precautions. Chiropractic clinics and medical facilities follow strict guidelines to minimise radiation exposure during X-ray procedures.

Benefits for Patients

Patients who undergo chiropractic care can experience a wide array of benefits, including:

  • Reduced pain and discomfort
  • Enhanced mobility and flexibility
  • Improved posture
  • Decreased stress and tension.

Chiropractic care isn’t just for back pain. It’s effective for treating headaches, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and many other musculoskeletal conditions.

Who We Help

We have established an age policy for our patients.

We welcome children aged 5 years and older to our clinic. Our treatments and methods are designed to suit the specific needs of this age group and above. We understand that younger children, especially babies and toddlers, require specialised care that may fall outside our scope of practice. Therefore, we do not see babies or toddlers at our clinic.

Why Choose Us?

At our clinic, we pride ourselves on a patient-centered approach. We understand that each patient is unique, and we tailor our treatments to meet your specific needs and health goals. Our experienced chiropractors use the latest evidence-based techniques to ensure you receive the best care possible.
