WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC
Chiropractors are Primary Healthcare Professionals, who focus on identifying conditions of the Neuro-Musculoskeletal System, and treating them. Whilst there is an assumption that Chiropractors only treat the spine, many Chiropractors regularly and successfully treat musculoskeletal conditions outside of the spine.
Chiropractors complete a 5 year tertiary education pathway, similar to that of physiotherapists, who complete 4 years. Chiropractic education generally involves an undergraduate and/or masters-level university training over a five year period. Once completed all Australian registered Chiropractors are required to complete continuing education to maintain their registration with AHPRA.
On the most part Chiropractors will provide hands on care for treatment of the Musculoskeletal Conditions they diagnose. This can be in the form Chiropractic Adjustments, Soft Tissue Therapies and Electrotherapy's. However, our experienced Perth Chiropractors provide a therapeutic approach to care, and utilise a range of treatment techniques to optimise treatment outcomes. This approach will see your experienced Perth Chiropractor provide a combination of therapies, which can include both passive and active therapies. If you are experiencing back pain, neck pain, headaches, migraines, nerve pain or any other musculoskeletal condition, it is best to book in with the experienced Perth Chiropractor near you.
