Chiropractors use specific techniques to treat areas of dysfunction within the nervous and musculoskeletal systems of the body. Removing these areas of dysfunction allows natural healing to begin. They are also trained in modifying their treatments to suit the age and presenting condition of a patient. Chiropractors often prescribe exercise and nutrition advice to further support healing.

What is chiropractic?
The word Chiropractic comes from the Greek words cheir and praktios meaning “Done by hand”.
Chiropractic is a healthcare modality that is focused on the diagnosis, management and prevention of neuronmusculoskeletal (nerves, muscles and bones) conditions. Australian chiropractors attend a minimum of 5 years at university (bachelor and masters degrees) where they study anatomy, physiology, neurology, radiology, rehabilitation and nutrition. Once meeting the requirements, they are registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and like all other AHPRA registered professions (GPs, physiotherapists, dentists, nurses etc) are committed to continual professional development every year.
