A chiropractic adjustment can be described as a movement made to the joints of your spine to correct or improve the alignment or function of your spine. Of course, there are many ways for a chiropractor to effect an adjustment and just as many ways to describe the procedure.
After years of clinical experience and training, every chiropractor at our centre can perform a range of trusted adjustments for your health and wellbeing.
Although our chiropractors’ primary focus is on the health and well-being of your spine, they are also skilled in alleviating pain or dysfunction at any other joints such as the shoulders, knees, ankle feet, and wrist.
Chiropractic treatment actively corrects the alignment and the normal range of motion of joints in the body, especially the spine. This relieves pressure, minimises potential joint damage and improves the functioning of the nervous system.
We offer care for many conditions, such as:
Chiropractors are health providers focusing on the musculoskeletal system, placing particular emphasis on the function of the spine and nervous system. Initial consultations entail a thorough assessment and diagnosis which holistically considers the physical history and current symptoms. Your chiropractor will discuss your treatment options with you, and ensure it is in line with your needs. The ultimate goal is to improve your physical function.
In-clinic treatments are not the only option. Chiropractors can also provide advice and rehabilitation to patients, which can support their quick recovery.
Our clinic near Moonee Ponds is different – we are equipped with health professionals who provide you with care throughout all stages of recovery from your injury or condition. We realise that treating the problem is more than just eliminating pain. Our clinic also addresses the underlying causes of your condition or injury.
Medicare will cover up to five visits per year for patients who have a chronic disease management program from their GP. You may have to pay a gap payment depending on which chiropractic clinic is being visited. Call us for fee information.
You don’t need to have a referral from your doctor to visit a chiropractor. We can assist you to book an appointment right away. You only require a referral from your GP if you wish to access chiropractic treatment under a chronic disease management plan covered by Medicare.
There is no definitive answer to this question as it depends on the individual’s needs and health condition. Many people find that regular chiropractic treatment can improve their overall health and manage chronic conditions. Regular chiropractic adjustments are a good way to prevent future problems.
A personalised treatment plan will be created by our chiropractors to meet your individual needs. This may include how often you should visit the clinic and when.
It doesn’t matter what types of clothing you wear during your visit to the chiropractor. The chiropractor may not be able to adjust your spine if the clothing is too tight or uncomfortable. It is best to wear loose, comfortable clothes.
During your chiropractic session, your chiropractor will take a thorough medical history, perform a physical examination, and may order diagnostic tests if necessary. After that, we will develop a specific treatment plan. This might include spinal manipulation, mobilisations or at-home exercise.
