Chiropractic

The World Health Organisation defines Chiropractic as "A health care profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system and the effects of these disorders on general health. There is an emphasis on manual techniques, including joint adjustment and/or manipulation with a particular focus on subluxations."

After a thorough consultation on your reasons for seeking care, examination and testing a plan of care will be determined especially for you to get you heading in the right direction to achieve the goals you would like to with your care.

We use gentle adjusting techniques to restore optimum function to the body. This is done by improving the communication between the brain and body, allowing each individual to express their full health potential and be the absolute best version of themselves they can. We also provide rehabilitation exercises to help to improve your strength, flexibility and posture.

Chiropractic Care focuses on eliminating vertebral subluxations that can be a major stress and can interfere with your natural inner healing ability. The vertebral subluxation complex is a condition where the spinal bones are misaligned, disrupting the nervous systems at the spinal cord and nerve roots. As a result, the normal communication from the brain to every tissue, cell and organ in the body is interrupted.

When the nervous system experiences interference, your body is unable to perform and function at its best. Chiropractic Care restores proper communication between all cells, tissue, organs and systems to allow the body to work with ease and harmony. Individuals and families turn to our qualified chiropractors at our Bendigo Clinic for natural, drugless and chemical-free Chiropractic Care.
