Chiropractic is a drug-free, non-invasive approach to improved health. Chiropractic is recognised as part of mainstream health delivery and the largest non-prescribing primary contact health profession in the world. Chiropractic utilises a natural conservative approach to health. There are more than 200 000 visits to chiropractors in Australia every week. When compared with drugs or surgical intervention for conditions involving the nervous, muscular and/or skeletal systems, studies have shown chiropractic adjustments to be a safer alternative. For neck pain, studies show that chiropractic adjustments are much safer than the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs by as much as a factor of several hundred times.
In rare cases, chiropractic care may be unsuitable. Your initial consultation where we explore your health history and conduct a thorough chiropractic assessment will alert us if chiropractic care is not for you. If necessary we will refer you on to another appropriate health care professional.
If you have any questions or concerns, always discuss these with your chiropractor.
