For people seeking a Healthy Lifestyle, Chiropractic care offers so much more than just Relief from Back Pain

Join the millions of Australians that have, not only found relief from chiropractic care, but realized this natural, drug free approach may in fact be the key to health and wellness.  

Your spine is made up of 24 moving vertebrae that allow your body to bend, twist and move. Inside your spine is your delicate nervous system. Your nervous system controls and coordinates every cell, tissue, muscle and organ of your body allowing you to live your life.

Stress on your spine, some sudden and some over time like poor posture can cause the bones in the spine to shift out of their normal alignment. When this occurs joints can become “STUCK”. Stuck joints can interfere with the messages between your brain and body and may lead to a symptom.

These symptoms are your body’s only way of letting you know something is wrong. Unfortunately, the absence of pain is not an indication of health. By the time pain and symptoms appear the problem may have been present for months, years or even decades.

Frequently Asked Questions

No. There are 3 types of care that our qualified Chiropractors offer. What you choose will depend on your immediate, short and long term health goals.

Relief Care

The primary focus of Relief Care is to help you get out of pain fast.

After a thorough consultation, exam and x-ray (if clinically indicated),reveals areas of your spine affected by Subluxation your Doctor of Chiropractic will in most cases recommend an adjusting schedule of 2-3 times per week for 2-4 weeks.

Research has shown that with uncomplicated postural and spinal problems that pain decreases by around by 50% in 6.7 visits.

Your Doctor of Chiropractic may also recommend home therapies such as icing and/or stretching at home.

Corrective Care

Is designed to help slow, stop and even reverse the damage caused by Subluxation in the spine. As your pain starts to go you will question why I still need to come. It is important to understand that the amount of degeneration that is present in your spine as seen on your x-rays is a telling sign how long the condition has been present.

Corrective Care has the ability to improve your posture and improve your spinal joint health by maintaining proper communication throughout the entire body.

During Corrective Care, your doctor may recommend visiting one to two times per week in addition to completing home spinal molding, and postural strengthening exercises.

Maintenance Care

Maintenance Care is designed to keep your spine free from Subluxation. While routine chiropractic can help improve health and well-being; it can also serve as an early detection system for new problems. Research shows that after two weeks of have a joint become stuck it has already started to degenerate. So for people wishing to maintain a Healthy Spine and Nervous System for life we recommend an adjustment and check up every 2-4 weeks.

Your Doctor of Chiropractic will also recommend Spinal molding and postural strengthening exercises along with a balanced diet, so that you can reach your highest health potential.

There is a reason why elite athletes, like Michael Phelps, Tom Brady and Rory Mcilroy, are under regular chiropractic care. Studies have shown that it:

  • Reduces inflammation
  • Boosts your immune system function
  • Enhances pulmonary function
  • Decreases mental and oxidative stress
  • Relieves muscle tension

Studies have even shown, objectively and subjectively, that chiropractic patients experience “overall increased bodily function,”, which enhances your ability to think, move and perform.

Chiropractic is the largest, non-invasive, drugless and safest forms of health care available. Research shows that patient risk is substantially lower when receiving chiropractic care as opposed to medical care. Under a qualified Chiropractor, a Chiropractic adjustment is a highly controlled procedure that rarely causes discomfort because minimal force. In fact, most patients feel relief immediately following treatment. At The Posture Doctor we have a range of adjusting techniques ranging from very mild to firm. If you have a preference please let your Chiropractor know.

Any reported soreness after an initial adjustment has been described as similar to that associated with starting a new exercise program. If you do have soreness, be sure to let your Doctor of Chiropractic know. We also using an ice pack, and gently encouraging light stretching to help ease any discomfort and promote healing.

The answer to this question depends on your presenting condition and overall goals. As mentioned above there are 3 types of care. Whatever your health goals we will help you reach them with the most appropriate program of care.

If you have questions regarding your medications we ask that you consult with your prescribing G.P. Chiropractors deal with the spine and such a question is out of our scope of practice. Many patients under regular chiropractic care have reported a positive change in their symptoms and less medication (prescriptions) and over-the-counter (OTC) drug use.
