Understanding Chiropractic Care: A Natural Health Resource

If you’re new to chiropractic care, you may wonder what this form of natural healthcare involves. Dr Stott (Chiropractor) provides a closer look!

Chiropractic is a type of healthcare that focuses on the assessment, diagnosis, care, and management of conditions related to the musculoskeletal system, which includes bones, joints, muscles and ligaments. This system is crucial in providing the human body with stability, support, and movement.

Is It Regulated?

Yes! Chiropractic is among the 15 healthcare professions regulated by AHPRA, alongside other professions like medicine, dentistry, and nursing.

What Are the Educational Requirements for Chiropractors?

Chiropractors like Dr Stott are required to complete an accredited chiropractic degree program from one of the four recognised chiropractic universities in Australia, which typically takes a minimum of five years. Dr Stott earned a Master of Chiropractic from Macquarie University.

What Services Do Chiropractors Provide?

Chiropractors employ a variety of hands-on approaches to alleviate pain, relax muscles and enhance joint mobility. They utilise soft tissue techniques, stretching, mobilisation and adjustments. Beyond these manual methods, your chiropractic plan can also encompass non-physical forms of clinical care like lifestyle advice, condition-specific guidance, and exercise recommendations.

Here are some of the reasons many people seek our form of natural healthcare:

  • Back pain
  • Headaches
  • Neck pain
  • Nerve entrapment
  • Work and sports-related injuries
  • Sprains or strains

What Are the Benefits?

Chiropractic offers a non-invasive, drug-free health solution and is the first choice for many Australians seeking low-risk pain management and improved mobility and physical function. A wealth of ever-growing research suggests that chiropractic care can address a range of musculoskeletal conditions, particularly lower back pain.

In Australia, chiropractors are considered Primary Care Practitioners, which means you don’t need a referral from a GP or other healthcare professional to consult or visit a chiropractor.
