FAQs about chiropractic

Is chiropractic based on science?

Yes.

Chiropractic is based on the science of how the body works (physiology). There is growing evidence for the wide array of conditions that chiropractic is beneficial for.

Chiropractic Neuro-Rehabilitation is based on the science of the nervous system (neuroscience).

Are all chiropractors the same?

No.

It is important to find the right practitioner for you and your family. Here’s more about our Chiropractors:

What’s the difference between chiropractors, physiotherapists and osteopaths?

There are many similarities:

  • All registered with Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA)
  • All have minimum 4-years full time university training in Bachelor of Health Science or Bachelor of Applied Science - majoring in their chosen field. Chiropractic is a 5-year degree.
  • All have knowledge of anatomy, physiology, pathology, neurology, orthopaedic assessment and diagnosis.
  • Philosophies, assessment, and ways of treating are becoming more similar (for those that keep up with clinical research)

The difference between Chiropractic, Osteopathy and Physiotherapy is in their approach, rather than the techniques they use. For example, contrary to popular beliefs, chiropractor doesn’t just release jammed up joints - but looks at why it’s locked up in the first place.

Chiropractic takes a holistic view of health by looking at the physical, chemical and emotional stresses that may be causing your aches and pains. This means assessing how you are moving (or not moving), what you are eating, how you think. A great example is migraines: your triggers could be eating too much cheese, sleeping in a funny position or getting stressed at work.

Individual practitioners will have a unique approach depending on their postgraduate education, clinical interests and personal experiences.

Bottom line: Choosing the right practitioner for you and your family will come down to the individual, rather than the profession.
