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.
How does it work?
In essence, chiropractic care addresses restrictions of motion in the musculoskeletal system. That means helping the body move and function how it’s designed to, 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, chiro can be a suitable treatment for everyone. Our chiropractor works with people of all ages and 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 we use different techniques for each person. At your first appointment, we’ll make a thorough assessment and tailor a treatment to suit your individual needs.
