What is Chiropractic

At Motion chiropractic clinic we offer chiropractic care to all ages and for all aches & pains. Chiropractic is an evidenced based manual therapy that addresses and prevents a range of musculoskeletal disorders and well as looks after your spine and central nervous system. Chiropractors specially specialise in the spine and central nervous system, as the aim of treatment is to improve your spinal mobility and well as your posture. By doing so there is less irritation to your nervous system and your body is able to function and move well.

In addition to your spine chiropractors assess the whole body! This includes all joints such as Shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees and ankle/foot. Motion in all of these joints and well as reducing any pain that is present is vital to your wellbeing and lifestyle.

What Is An Adjustment?

An adjustment is a quick movement through a joint space that allows for joint mobility. With an adjust there may be an audible “pop” “click” “crack” noise; this is gas being released from a fluid filled joint space.

Our Chiropractors

Chiropractors in Australia are required to undertake a 3 year bachelor degree as well as a 2 year masters degree. All our chiropractors are also registered with the Australian health practitioner regulation agency and the Australian chiropractors association.

Relief

The relief phase of care is normally the initial 1 – 4 weeks of care. This is normally an acute presentation of an injury. This is the most critical time to be assessed and diagnosed by our chiropractor

Corrective

After the relief phase of care and there is a reduction in your pain and symptoms your treatment then aims on correcting your spinal mobility and how your body is moving and working together. This means reducing any areas that your body is compensating and to get your whole body moving well together.

Preventative

Once your body is then moving well and feeling well it is imperative to maintain this. This is where your adjustments are far more spaced out and your visits are once every 4 weeks just to maintain, prevent and look after your body. It’s like servicing your car, the more you look after it the longer it will last!
