ChiropracticCraigieburn

Chiropractic care at our Craigieburn clinic provides a holistic approach to musculoskeletal issues, with chiropractors at Soaring Health using thorough assessments and collaborations for comprehensive patient well-being.

Chiropractor Craigieburn

Chiropractic care offers a holistic, non-invasive healthcare solution, specialising in diagnosing and addressing musculoskeletal problems, particularly in relation to the nervous system. It is frequently chosen for various ailments, such as injuries and discomforts involving the back, neck, joints, and specific headaches resulting from musculoskeletal anomalies.

Central to chiropractic treatment is the "adjustment" procedure. At Craigieburn, our experienced chiropractors undertake a thorough assessment of each patient, often involving a complete physical examination and, if required, X-rays to delve deeper into the root of the issue. With this knowledge, they apply precise pressure to particular areas, predominantly the spine or affected joints. This targeted realignment seeks to rectify imbalances, alleviating pain, re-establishing balance, and enhancing overall movement.

While chiropractic treatment can be a primary solution for conditions like chronic lower back pain, its potential doesn't stop there. Acknowledging the body's integrated nature, Soaring Health chiropractors frequently team up with other healthcare experts. This collaborative approach guarantees an all-encompassing treatment pathway, not only addressing the immediate symptoms but also co-existing conditions and root causes, promoting complete well-being for the patient.

Healthcare funding types

NDIS

If you’re living with a disability, you’re probably familiar with the challenges of accessing the help you need. Not only can the required frequency of therapy can make paying fees unaffordable, funding provisions and onerous application processes can further delay treatment. At Soaring Health, we recognize the importance of accessing the therapeutic services you need, when you need them. As a registered NDIS provider, Soaring Health’s practitioners treat eligible participants under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). What’s more, our community coordinator and customer service team are well-versed in NDIS requirements and can help you to fast-track access to appropriate treatment.

Medicare

When you suffer chronic pain and persistent medical conditions, it can be hard to keep up with healthcare costs. Financial worries may cause you to forgo treatment that would relieve debilitating symptoms and improve your level of functioning and quality of life. At Soaring Health, we believe in removing barriers to you receiving the treatment you need. In the case of chronic pain lasting six months or more, we can provide fully bulk-billed treatment for up to five visits per year under Medicare’s Chronic Disease Management plan or CDM (formerly called an EPC), so you can access the treatment services you need, when you need them, without being out of pocket.

T.A.C

Motor vehicle injuries can vary in severity from minor to life-changing. At Soaring Health, we strive to resolve all injuries caused by transport accidents and collisions. The services available to TAC clients at Soaring Health have been purposefully selected and tailored to address the physical, mental and emotional effects of injuries caused by road trauma. Part of our dedicated community division, this program of services is also designed to relieve the financial burden of your accident and ensure that you receive the treatment you need, when you need it, without out-of-pocket fees. You can access our services through the TAC as soon as you have a claim number, meaning you can dedicate your full focus to making an efficient and satisfying recovery.

My Aged Care

Many people associate the Australian government’s My Aged Care program purely with practical assistance with daily tasks and activities. But if you’re aged over 65, you may also be able to access Soaring Health services such as physiotherapy, hydrotherapy and home services fee-free through My Aged Care provisions, to enable you to maintain or regain capacities necessary for daily living, and relieve pain and conditions that may otherwise compromise your quality of life. Depending on your circumstances, you may ask your case manager to request these services as part of your support package.

WORKSAFE

Workplace accidents causing serious injury can be devastating. One minute you’re earning a reliable income. The next you’re plagued by uncertainty over when, or even whether, you’ll be able to return to work – not to mention navigating daily life with pain and physical limitations and facing out-of-pocket medical costs or delaying necessary treatment until your claims are processed. Part of the answer to how well you’ll recover depends on receiving the treatment you need, when you need it, and having a collaborative and integrated team of healthcare professionals who can work together to optimise your recovery and support your return to work and daily life.

D.V.A

Serving to protect one's country is a significant human act, but it can lead to lasting physical and mental challenges for veterans. Soaring Health works with the Department of Veteran’s Affairs to provide veterans with comprehensive care at no cost to them, helping them return to civilian life. Eligible individuals can schedule an appointment by presenting their Veteran Card.

FAQ

  • What is Chiropractic?
    The aim of chiropractic is to better align bones to enable muscles and nerves to function better. Our chiropractors are trained to scientifically examine your body and then apply manual therapies to manage your health issues. We also provide advice on nutrition and exercise, wellness and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
  • Will you crack my back?
    There is a common misperception that chiropractors ‘crack’ or ‘crunch’ bones. Soaring Health chiropractors use a range of methods to adjust your musculoskeletal system and none of them involve actually cracking bones. Sometimes, when a joint is manipulated, nitrogen gas around the joint will be released, causing a popping sound. This does not involve damage to the bone or joint. Our chiros operate by a clear patient charter which states that patients will be informed of the service they will receive and must consent to it before a chiropractor provides the service. If you do not want a particular type of treatment, tell your chiropractor and they will discuss alternative methods of adjustment.
  • What techniques do you use?
    Our sports and wellness chiropractors use a range of techniques, including education and advice on posture, health and wellbeing, spinal adjustment and other techniques to improve your spinal health. They spend five years at university studying a range of methods to improve the comfort and function of your spine and, as a result, assist the function of your nervous system.
  • Does Chiropractic treatment hurt?
    Most of our clients report that it doesn’t hurt at all. If you’re in a lot of pain right now, you may experience some discomfort during and after an adjustment. However, it’s usually minimal.
  • Is Chiropractic evidence based?
    Chiropractic subscribes to high standards of healthcare and holds itself accountable for effective, safe treatment methods. Members of the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia support more health research and ongoing scrutiny of all health practitioners – chiropractic and otherwise. Many doctors and other health experts have expressed support for chiropractic care, particularly in relation to management of lower back pain.

    Moreover, in 2007, researchers from the American College of Physicians and the American Pain Society recommended spinal manipulation as a treatment for both acute and chronic back pain. In addition, a 2004 article in the Archives of Internal Medicine found that chiropractic care may actually lower the overall cost of health care provision.

    Abundant evidence and expert opinion also attests to the safety of chiropractic treatment. According to the US Government’s National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, spinal adjustments – or manipulation – are relatively safe when performed by a licensed practitioner.
  • What qualifications does a chiropractor have?
    Soaring Health chiropractors must complete a five-year university course (or have received a recognised equivalent training overseas) in order to practice.
  • Will I have to be x-rayed?
    It’s impossible to answer that question since necessity for X-rays depends on your condition. After an initial examination, your Soaring Health chiropractor will make recommendations for further assessment and/or commencing treatment. X-rays referred by our chiropractors are bulk billed for Medicare card holders.
  • What is so unique about the Soaring Health Athlete Assessment protocol?
    Our Soaring Health athlete assessment protocol was designed with the athletes goals in mind. Unlike any other standard health assessment, this protocol replicates the same assessment and process elite athletes experience when competing at the highest level.
