What is chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a health profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of musculoskeletal conditions, particularly those of the spine and their effects on the nervous system. Chiropractors may treat any of the body's joints, but more commonly the muscles, joints and ligaments of the spine are treated.  Chiropractors use their hands to perform a wide range of skilled and precise manual therapies including joint manipulation, mobilization and soft tissue techniques.  
In addition to this your Chiro Health practitioner may suggest the use of medical acupuncture, ultrasound therapy or shoe orthotics.
Numerous studies throughout the world have shown that chiropractic treatment, including manipulative therapy and spinal adjustment, is both safe and effective.
