What is Chiropractic?


“Chiropractic is derived from the Greek words: Chiro (hands) and Praktikos (to be done) meaning literally to do by hand. It is a primary health care profession so you don’t need a medical referral to see a chiropractor. Chiropractors specialise in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of conditions that are due to biomechanical dysfunction of the joints, particularly of the spine and their effects on the central nervous system. In some cases further investigation is required such as x-rays or MRI scans and chiropractors are trained to interpret both of these.

The chiropractic treatment is in the form of spinal adjustments usually done by hand that is highly effective, safe and natural. Chiropractic treats the cause not the effect. The most common conditions patients attend a chiropractor for are, lower back pain, neck pain, tension between the shoulder blades, arm or leg pain, pins and needles and/or numbness in the extremities and headaches. Chiropractors do not prescribe medication, nor do we perform surgery. Rather, we aim to improve your health naturally, assisting your body to perform at its optimal level.”
