Chiropractic

Chiropractic is a holistic, hands-on, drug-free healthcare discipline that comprehensively assesses and treats conditions and disorders of the musculoskeletal system with an emphasis on the contribution of the nervous system. Often sought for specific injuries and pain, the treatment also identifies and addresses less obvious issues responsible for referred pain and secondary complaints. While common targets for Thomastown chiropractic treatment include back pain, neck pain and joint pain, chiropractic can also address health concerns such as headaches. The best known Thomastown chiro treatment technique is a chiropractic adjustment (the word ‘chiropractic’ comes from the Greek words for ‘hands’, cheirand ‘practice’,praxis). Based on a thorough assessment, a chiropractor will carefully and purposefully apply pressure to a person’s spine or other joints to adjust and correct alignment, to reduce pain and improve movement. In many cases, such as lower back pain, chiropractic care may be a standalone treatment. However, a Soaring Health Thomastown chiropractor may also refer clients to other health professionals and, where appropriate, work collaboratively with them on co-occurring complaints or conditions.
