Chiropractors specialize in the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and management of conditions caused by the musculoskeletal system (including bones, joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments, particularly those of the spine) and the effects these can have on your general health.
Chiropractic addresses the underlying cause, rather than just treating the symptoms or using pain-relief medication to mask the symptoms.
It uses proven techniques and natural methods to help you get well and stay well.
Chiropractic care is a primary healthcare profession established over 100 years ago. It can treat many conditions without the need for medication or surgery. Because it’s a primary healthcare profession, you don’t need a referral from your medical doctor. Chiropractors are trained to diagnose what is wrong and will refer you to another healthcare practitioner, if required.
Chiropractors are recognized worldwide as the leaders in non-surgical spine treatment. They train exclusively in the spine and nervous system for 4 years and like all regulated health professionals, must complete an accredited degree, as well as continued professional development throughout their careers.
Understanding chiropractic principles enables us to see that keeping the nerve pathways clear can help alleviate both the cause and the symptoms of illness and disease.
