What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractors are AHPRA-registered allied health professionals focused on assessing and managing the musculoskeletal system. They undertake 5 years of study at university to learn how the human body works and how to best care for it.
Utilising a holistic approach and range of techniques, chiropractors can manage a number of conditions and injuries that are more than spine related. These conditions may include, low back pain, tennis/golfers elbow, Achilles tendinopathy, arthritis, muscle injuries, headaches, ligament or joint injuries, sciatica or disc problems. Depending on your injury, a number of treatment modalities may be utilised. These include; adjustments, soft tissue therapy, mobilisations, rehabilitative exercise, advice and education.
If you’re unsure how a chiropractor can help, don’t hesitate to send an enquiry. We’ll be happy to assist!
When should I see a Chiropractor?
There is a common misconception that chiropractors can only manage conditions relating to the spine. This could not be further from the truth. Chiropractors undergo extensive studying and training to be able to manage the whole musculoskeletal system. Whether you have recently sustained an injury or have been dealing with chronic pain in any region of the musculoskeletal system, the chiropractors here at OnePointHealth can help.
Common conditions/symptoms a chiropractor manages:
- Low back and hip pain
- Neck pain and spinal injuries
- Disc herniations
- Tendon injuries
- Muscle strains
- Headaches and migraine management
- Chronic pain management
- Shoulder injuries
- Postural assessments
What’s the difference between a Chiropractor and a Physiotherapist?
In musculoskeletal health care, the list of differences between a chiropractor and a physiotherapist is diminishing. Both professions are trained at university and undergo an extensive study to have a thorough understanding of how the whole body functions and how to manage musculoskeletal issues. Where differences may arise are in how chiropractors may manage certain conditions. Depending on the injury, the foundational principles will still apply but potentially with a different scope. Chiropractors may utilise other treatment modalities such as adjustments to help your pain and function or look at other areas contributing to your symptoms.
