What is a chiropractor?

Abnormal movement or injury related to the spinal joints can interfere with the functionality of the nervous system, which can subsequently cause a significant amount of pain and discomfort.  Chiropractors are trained to locate these affected areas and treat them through specialised techniques, restoring alignment and optimal health.  Often these types of problems are self-perpetuating; however, the aim of chiropractic care is to prevent this vicious cycle from persisting by gently restoring correct joint motion and affording your body the opportunity to heal properly.

Chiropractic care takes years to master and there is a strict set of educational and professional criteria that all chiropractors must fulfil in order to qualify.  This includes five years of study at University as well as government registration and strict, ongoing regulation.

 

What does a chiropractor do?

Chiropractic care works through repetition over a period of time.  Very specific regions of your spine are adjusted and will generally improve with each treatment. Over time, your chiropractor will gradually restore optimal joint movement, thereby releasing nerve pressure to give symptomatic relief and optimise your health. Methods used vary in accordance with the presenting condition or age of the patient.  A chiropractor may use their hands to apply precise and subtle pressure in certain areas, whilst at other times they may use a gentle instrument called an Activator.  The various techniques all have the same aim of gently restoring correct motion to the spinal joints.

 

During Your Visit

Prior to your initial consultation, our friendly staff will be on hand to guide you through a short questionnaire, which will allow us to outline your condition and gather some basic information for our records.

First, there will be a detailed discussion regarding the history of your ailment as well as any relevant surgeries, accidents or other medical history details deemed appropriate.  This will help Dr Daniels to assess what the cause might be.  A comprehensive physical, spinal and postural examination will follow, allowing Dr Daniels to investigate and diagnose the specific problem.

In some cases, you may be referred to a local radiology clinic for an x-ray in order to rule out any serious conditions and to allow Dr Daniels to view your spine in close detail. These films will aid Dr. Daniels to carefully develop the most effective treatment plan for you.  This x-ray service is generally bulk billed. This completes the first visit.

Your second session will begin with a review of the findings from your previous examination and x-rays.  Dr. Daniels will then outline the personalised care plan that he has developed to help alleviate your presenting condition.  We encourage our patients to ask any questions they might have regarding their condition and wellness.  There is no question too small.

After receiving a full explanation of what you can expect, you will receive your first spinal adjustment.

We understand that your time is precious. Through the application of modern, gentle techniques, we will not take a minute longer than is necessary to deliver your treatment, as we embark on your personalised care plan to optimal health.
