What is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care is a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical treatment for musculoskeletal pains. The first recorded chiropractic adjustment was made in 1895 by Daniel David Palmer. Since then, countless individuals have sought chiropractic treatment to relieve pain, and chiropractors are recognized to play a crucial role in spinal healthcare. In Australia alone, more than 300,000 people book an appointment every week with a chiropractor. As a non-invasive health solution, chiropractic care can alleviate pains affecting your bones, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and connective tissues.

Who Provides Chiropractic Care?

In Australia, only a trained professional registered with the Chiropractic Board of Australia is allowed to provide chiropractic care. As with other healthcare professions, chiropractors are subject to extensive training, codes of ethics, standards, and guidelines. A chiropractor must have completed an accredited chiropractic program in a university and a supervised clinical internship – all of which take up to five years or more. To maintain registration and practice, chiropractors are mandated to undergo continuing education each year.

What Does a Chiropractor Treat?

The most common reason people visit a chiropractor is for back or neck pain. However, at Winthrop Chiropractic care, our chiropractors may also help with the following:

  • Headaches
  • Whiplash
  • Strains and sprains from daily activities
  • Posture correction
  • Sports injuries
  • Work-related injuries
  • Arthritis treatment
  • Sciatica treatment
  • Pregnancy-related back pain
  • Paediatric chiropractic care
  • Teenager-related health issues
  • Non-invasive solution to many types of health problems

Since the cause of back and neck pain can be varied, the symptoms that chiropractors can be presented with include burning sensations in muscles, swelling, stiffness, muscle twitches or contraction, bruising, fatigue, and difficulty moving affected areas. It is essential that every person who feels pain and sudden discomfort receives a thorough examination by a chiropractor. Early intervention is essential to prevent complications.Call Winthrop Chiropractic Care at (08) 9332 0122 to book an appointment.

How Do Chiropractors Treat Pain?

A popular misconception is that chiropractic care focuses solely on re-alignment of the spine through gentle adjustments. Chiropractors are trained to perform numerous chiropractic treatments, including:

  • Chiropractic adjustment
  • Mobilisation
  • Soft tissue therapy
  • Dry needling
  • Myofascial release

Additionally, chiropractors are able to recommend nutritional, dietary, lifestyle, and exercise advice to treat and rehabilitate health conditions related to bones, muscles, and joints. In our practice, a family chiropractor uses both manual and instrument-based methods. The exact combination of treatments that you undergo will depend on the cause of your pain and the game plan that is set out for you by your Chiropractor.

  • Activator Method
    • A chiropractic care treatment that uses a handheld, spring-loaded instrument to apply gentle pressure to a spinal joint.
  • Diversified Method
    • One of the most commonly practised techniques in chiropractic care which involves the use of short spurts of pressure to the restricted joints.
  • Gonstead Method
    • A chiropractic care technique that uses X-ray and motion palpation to examine the spine.

Feel free to ask our chiropractors any questions you may have about chiropractic care and the treatments available to you. Contact Winthrop Chiropractic Care at (08) 9332 0122 or book an appointment online.

How Do Chiropractors Know Where To Adjust?

Visiting a chiropractor in Perth for chiropractic adjustment doesn’t start and end with a back massage. Depending on your situation, you may be advised to undergo assessments such as an orthopaedic exam, a neurological exam, an X-ray examination, or an MRI to obtain a thorough and objective image of your health. The results of these tests will help your chiropractor to identify the causes of your pain and discomfort, and to guide the treatments and game plan for your specific situation. The exact area that you get treated will depend entirely on the results of these assessments and the causes of your pain.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Over the years, numerous studies have documented the benefits of chiropractic care. When performed by a trained professional, chiropractic care can:

  • relieve neck and back pain
  • ease headache symptoms
  • improve posture
  • reduce scoliosis and osteoarthritis symptoms

All of the above can be achieved through targeted and consistent care by your local chiropractor.

Preparing For a Chiropractic Adjustment

As in any medical field, don’t be shy to ask a lot of questions when showing up for an appointment with a chiropractor. At Winthrop Chiropractic Care, we will provide you with all the information you need, including if you ought to be referred to other healthcare professionals based on your injury or pain point. A chiropractic adjustment is not for everyone. People with severe osteoporosis, cancer in the spine, increased risk of stroke, and bone abnormality in the upper neck are not recommended for a chiropractic adjustment. If you are unsure if chiropractic care is right for you, just ask! As regulated healthcare professionals, chiropractors are obliged to only deliver treatments that are necessary for their patients wellbeing and healing.
