Chiropractors specialise in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of conditions and/or injuries related to the neurological, muscular or skeletal system.
Chiropractors study extensively for 6 years to obtain a Master’s degree and therefore are defined as primary health care providers. Chiropractors are diagnosticians and will be able to assess you thoroughly before deciding what treatment protocols are necessary, or if imaging or a specialist referral is needed.
Chiropractic is an incredibly safe and conservative treatment approach to many common injuries and conditions including:
- Neck Pain
- Low back pain
- Sports injuries
- Injuries/conditions of the peripheral joints (Shoulders, elbows, wrist and hands, hip, knee and feet and ankles)
Chiropractic is also used by many athletes, of varying skill levels; to not only treat injuries but to actually prevent the injuries from occurring, as well as helping to optimise athletic performance.
