Do you suffer from migraines, back pain, joint pain or sciatica? It could be because your spinal biomechanics are out of adjustment. At Melbourne Natural Wellness Clinic in the CBD, our Chiropractors are experts in spinal health and may be able to rectify your problem and bring you relief.
A Chiropractor can help to restore proper spinal biomechanics, improve nervous system function and heal stubborn chronic problems that haven’t improved with other treatments. Their role is to find the cause of your pain and relieve it and to help prevent injuries so you can get the best from your body at all times.
The benefits of Chiropractic care
While spinal manipulation has been a healing technique for thousands of years, modern Chiropractic care was only developed in the late nineteenth century. It is widely recognised today as an effective health care approach and research supports its use in the treatment of a range of disorders including back injuries, headaches and migraines, lower back pain, joint pain, period pain, posture problems and sciatica.
Modern Chiropractors view the skeleton and muscles not as separate parts of the body, but as part of the body as a whole. And many ascribe to the theory of the ‘kinematic chain’, which postulates that the function of one of the body’s mechanical links can have an effect on another.
In other words, while a misalignment may produce localised pain, it could also have an effect elsewhere in the chain. For example, a lower back problem could lead to compensation in the upper spine, which could manifest itself in the form of a headache.
It is the Chiropractor’s job to identify the real cause of your pain or discomfort and to help alleviate it using the most effective and non-invasive means.
What does Chiropractic care involve?
When you visit a Chiropractor, they will firstly evaluate your condition to determine whether Chiropractic care is the best form of treatment for you. They will normally give you a physical examination which may involve observing your stance and movements and feeling your spine, head and pelvis.
If deemed appropriate, your Chiropractor will then treat your problem using any of a variety of techniques, which can include;
- Low-force adjustments – using the hands to press or push
- Corrective posture techniques and stretching – poor posture is responsible for a range of problems
- Massage – soft tissue manipulation if appropriate
- Prescriptive exercises – an exercise regime designed to correct faulty posture and movement.
Adjustment may be performed while you are standing, sitting or lying down, depending on your symptoms, and while you may hear a clicking sound during some procedures, this is normally a painless process.
What to expect in your Chiropractic sessions
When you visit a Chiropractor at Melbourne Natural Wellness Clinic, they will review your health history with you and discuss your specific problem. A thorough Orthopedic, Neurological, and Chiropractic examination is then performed and X-rays may be taken if deemed necessary to uncover structural and functional problems associated with the spinal column. These examinations help to identify areas of spinal malfunction.
After your initial consultation, as your treatment progresses, your progress is monitored with periodic examinations and the next stage in your treatment is explained to you at the end of each visit. Follow-up reports are also compiled by your Chiropractor to ensure your treatment is working for you.
