Chiropractors in Australia are nationally registered and regulated health professionals who study at university for a minimum of five years to become qualified.
Chiropractic is a primary contact health care profession with its own unique principles and practice. Chiropractic care, including diagnosis and management, focuses upon the relationship between structure, primarily the spine, and function, primarily via the nervous system, as it relates to health, posture and performance.
Chiropractors are concerned with the framework of bones and muscles that supports the body. Depending on your condition, the chiropractor may adjust/manipulate part of your spine or other joints, do soft tissue work, give advice on self help and rehabilitation programmes.
There are many different techniques that can be used to adjust the spine or other joints in the body. At Afferentation Chiropractic we use a range of adjusting techniques including Instrument adjusting (Activator), Drop piece (TPT), Gonstead and Diversified. We will discuss with you what treatment and adjustment type is best suited to your needs before we start your first treatment.
