WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC?
A few words from the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia.
Chiropractic is a health care discipline based on the scientific premise that the body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism, and that these important functions are controlled by the brain, spinal cord and nervous systems.
The practise of Chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine and pelvis) and function (coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the restoration and preservation of health.
A few words from Dr Lorraine Scarr.
Some people have an inbuilt fear of Chiropractors – I understand that. But there’s a lot more to Chiropractic than manipulation. And there’s a lot more to The Bod Squad than treating your spine. We also treat knee, ankle and elbow pain and many other joints within the body. Our treatment is gentle and drug-free and for this reason, chiropractic treatment for children is becoming widely accepted by both ordinary Australians and General Medical Practitioners.
In fact Chiropractic care, as a non-invasive and drug-free approach to health, focuses on the neuromusculoskeletal system, particularly the spine, to help people of all ages live their healthiest life.
As chiropractors we are trained to diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions that can affect the body’s overall well-being, including back pain, neck pain, headaches, and joint pain caused by musculoskeletal misalignments, muscle tension, or nerve impingements.
Chiropractic can also be beneficial for managing conditions related to poor posture, sports injuries and workplace ergonomics and has also been shown to be helpful for individuals suffering from conditions such as sciatica, arthritis and fibromyalgia.
One of my personal favourites is Chiropractic care for the treatment of pregnancy-related discomfort. Being involved in the journey from conception through pregnancy to birth and beyond is an absolute privilege and one I cherish.
Due to the diversity of our patients we use a variety of techniques, there’s no “one fit for all” approach here, including spinal adjustments, soft tissue therapies, rehabilitative exercises, and lifestyle modifications to help our patients find relief from pain, improve mobility, and enhance overall health and wellness.
If you’d like to discuss further what is involved with Chiropractic treatment at The Bod Squad or if you simply want to ask me a question, please don’t hesitate to call me on 8431 9100. If I’m in the middle of treating a patient, I’ll make sure to call you back at a time that suits.
