About Chiropractic

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a health profession which diagnoses, manages and prevents spinal, bone and muscular disorders and their effects on the nervous system and general health.

Chiropractic is the world’s largest non-surgical, non-drug prescribing, primary contact health care profession. It is a natural approach to health, based on the relationship between the spine and the nervous system.

In Australia, there are more than 4000 registered Chiropractors and nearly 200,000 patient visits to Chiropractors each week.

Studies show that chiropractic care is safe and effective for many conditions including low back pain, neck pain, as well as shoulder, arm and leg symptoms. It can also provide relief from a range of functional disorders including headache, migraine, insomnia, sinus and earache.

Chiropractors are the only health professionals who are specifically trained and qualified to locate and correct mis-alignments of the spine.

Australian Chiropractors study at university for a minimum of five years full-time and are fully licensed health professionals who are governed by the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency.
