Chiropractic is a drug-free, surgery-free system of healthcare primarily for the musculoskeletal systems (bones, joints, muscles and ligaments) and some of the neurological system (nerves and the spinal cord).
Chiropractors are registered health professionals and complete a minimum of five years of university education. They are trained to treat mechanical issues of your musculoskeletal system which is made up of muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, and your nervous system.
Manual therapy techniques are used by chiropractors to improve the function of your spine and other joints in your body and can help with conditions such as low back pain, neck pain, headaches, and poor posture.
Chiropractors are also trained to prescribe stretches and exercises to treat and rehabilitate conditions related to muscles and joints to help support your body.
Here at Peregian Springs Chiropractic, we perform a detailed medical history and examination and refer for x-ray diagnostics (when appropriate) to locate the cause of your pain. This includes an individualised managed programme of Chiropractic adjustment, soft tissue therapy, sports taping, and other methods to support your treatment.
We also provide advice on physical activity, postural and rehabilitative methods to help you regain strength and mobility.
HOLISTIC PRACTICE PHILOSOPHY
At Peregian Springs Chiropractic, we are constantly amazed at the body's ability to heal itself when it is structurally aligned. A well-functioning spine and an uninhibited nervous system are essential in allowing the brain to improve function and the body to heal as nature intended.
Whilst pain relief is the reason many seek out Chiropractic care, at Peregian Springs Chiropractic we notice that the overall health and wellbeing patients experience is the primary reason they include us as an essential part of their family's ongoing health team.
