Chiropractic is a health profession concerned with the diagnosis, management, and prevention of mechanical disorders in the body. A chiropractor aims at minimising the effects these disorders have on an individual’s brain and nervous system, and overall experience of health. Although the spine is a large focus, a chiropractic is well skilled to look at other areas of the body.
Chiropractic care is aimed at removing restrictions and limitations in the body, through specialised adjusting techniques, that may create change in your physical health. This type of care may create healthy movement and alignment that maximises a person’s inbuilt potential to function with less restriction.
Techniques used include:
- Joint manipulation and adjustments
- Joint mobilisation
- Soft tissue release
- Reflex-based treatments
- Activator (instrument) method
- Craniosacral therapy
Chiropractic treatment is recommended for both pain and performance. If long-term or excessive limitation and loading has resulted in pain, a chiropractor can give relief. For people with performance goals, treatment can aid healthy and efficient movement in order to maximise your training and competitive events.
Like a dental check-up, a chiropractic assessment is recommended at least once every 4-6 weeks and more frequently for people with specific concerns or demands of their body.

Programs include both active therapy (where you are performing the therapy) and passive therapy (where you are receiving the hands-on input from the practitioner).
