What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?
A Chiropractic Adjustment is a very specific force applied to a joint which is considered to be "locked up" or not moving correctly. This force is usually applied by the Chiropractors hands or a specific Chiropractic adjusting instrument (called an activator). Each Chiropractor is trained for five years at university in a variety of techniques to tailor the adjustment type to the individual's needs.
Do I need a referral from my doctor to see a Chiropractor?
No you don't, although all referrals from doctors are welcome. As chiropractors are primary health care providers, there is no referral needed.
What qualifications does a chiropractor have?
In Australia, chiropractors must be registered and licensed to practice by the Chiropractors’ Registration Board. Chiropractors are required to complete a five-year university level degree.
Do you offer chiropractic for pregnant women?
Yes we do. During pregnancy, the body undergoes many postural changes, creating increased stress and load on the whole body. Chiropractic is often recommended to pregnant women to help alleviate pain and discomfort as their body changes.
