Why you need a Chiropractor
Unlike conventional medicine, which treats the symptoms of aches and pains, chiropractic care treats the underlying causes. Whether it’s a stiff neck or a ‘clicky’ joint, a good chiropractor gets to the heart of the problem.
In essence, chiropractic care addresses restrictions in motion within the musculoskeletal system. That means helping the body move and function how it’s designed to, and helping to alleviate pain. The bones and muscles have a very close relationship with the nerves. For this reason, gentle chiropractic treatment is especially good for improving conditions that relate to the nervous system.
Who can benefit from seeing a Chiropractor?
Regardless of your age or activity levels, gentle chiro can be a suitable treatment for everyone. Dr Tracy works with people of all ages, from all over Melbourne: from infants and kids through to teens, adults and the elderly. Sportspeople, office workers, people with osteoporosis, MS and arthritis can all reap benefits from Chiropractic care. Of course, no two patients are the same, so Dr Tracy uses different techniques for each one. When you come and see her, she’ll assess you thoroughly and tailor a treatment to your individual needs. It’s all about finding out what’s right for you.
