WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC?
"Chiropractic is a primary health-care profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and overall management of conditions that are due to problems with the joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves, especially related to the spine. Chiropractors use their hands to treat injuries involving bones, muscles and nerves."
Chiropractic treatment involves safe, gentle and specific manipulation and mobilisation to ease joints in the spine and other parts of the body that are not moving properly or require extra mobility. As well as manipulation and mobilisation, chiropractors also use a wide variety of methods including massage, exercise, nutritional advice, taping, ultrasound, and many more to get to the root cause of your problem and prevent it from returning.
