At Bodywise we aim to provide you with the safest and most effective Chiropractor treatment in Brisbane. If you have back pain, a bulging disc, neck pain or headache- chiropractic is a great option for you. Targeting your spine for specific manual adjustments is the main area of expertise of our chiropractors.
Chiropractic has similar origins to osteopathy- both originating from mid west America in the mid to late 1800’s and both disciplines believe in the premise that your body has self-regulating and self-healing mechanisms. Over the last 150 years or so, chiropractor Brisbane treatment has become specialised in hands-on pain relief from nerve pain, neck pain and all types of back treatment.
What is Chiropractic?
The practice of your chiropractor Brisbane focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine, and pelvis) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.
Your chiropractor Brisbane approach understands that the skull protects the delicate tissues of the brain and the moving bones of the spine protect the intricate communication pathways of the spinal cord and nerve roots. If these nerve pain system pathways are impaired, malfunction of the tissue and organ function throughout the body can result.
Chiropractor Brisbane treatment to achieve pain relief also places an emphasis on nutrition and exercise, wellness and healthy lifestyle modifications.
How Does Chiropractic Work?
Chiropractic is based upon the understanding that good health and less pain depends, in part, upon a normally functioning nervous system.
Your chiropractor Brisbane works by helping you to restore your own inborn ability to be healthy. When under the proper control and free-flow of your nervous system, all the cells, tissue, and organs of your body are designed to function well and resist disease and ill health. The chiropractor Brisbane approach to better health is to locate and help reduce interferences to your natural state of being healthy and in the process provide you with lasting pain relief.
A common interference to the nervous system is the twenty four moving bones (vertebrae) of the spinal column. A loss of normal motion or position of these bones can irritate or impair the function of the nervous system. This can disrupt the transmission of controlling nerve impulses and can result in nerve pain.
Chiropractor Brisbane treatment for pain aims to improve nervous system function primarily through chiropractic adjustments (with particular attention to the spine, skull and pelvis), to help remove any interference that may be impairing normal health.
What do Chiropractors Brisbane do?
You can expect your Chiro session to be similar to your osteopathy session (please read our FAQ section) whereby your treatment for pain relief will begin with your medical case history. This gives your Chiro background about your health, such as surgeries, accidents, the onset of your condition, previous back treatment you’ve had and other details affecting your current health.
After reviewing your history and discussing your specific problem, a thorough orthopaedic, neurological, and chiropractic examination is performed. The findings of these examinations are explained and a plan of chiropractic adjustments to provide pain relief and pain management may be recommended. Your progress will be closely monitored with periodical examinations and follow-up reports.
