What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a health care profession focused on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions.

Chiropractors utilise many safe, gentle and effective techniques to help restore proper spinal structure and function. Chiropractors may also offer supportive health care advice on nutrition, ergonomics, posture and rehabilitative exercise programs.

  • Back and neck pain

  • Headaches / migraines

  • Joint pain and stiffness

  • Spinal disorders

  • Sporting injuries

  • Shoulder / elbow / hand pain

  • Hip / knee pain / ankle pain

Do I need a referral to come see a chiropractor?

No. Chiropractors are primary healthcare practitioners therefore a referral is not necessary.
