Frequently Asked Questions
What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a safe and effective way of treating a myriad of musculoskeletal problems. Its philosophy and approach to wellbeing centres around the bodies own natural ability to function and heal itself. Our practitioner’s aim is to recreate balance in the body by stabilising the forces placed upon a joint complex. Correct alignment improves overall biomechanics creating optimal nervous system and muscular function, allowing adaptation and decreasing the prevalence of injury.
Our Chiropractors uses various styles of treatment including remedial massage, mobilisations, manipulations (adjustments), exercises and rehabilitation. Our goal is to “not only fix the fault but correct the cause”.
