Chiropractors More Than Just “Bone Crackers”?

We like to think that chiropractic care is much more than an in-clinic physical treatment. It is about health, wellness and happiness.
In the long run, we are helping your spine and muscles to change bad habits. Many postural problems are caused by strain and stress in everyday life. Although the human body is designed for daily activities like walking and standing, modern day lifestyles with sedentary desk jobs or mobile devices have presented new challenges.

When chiropractors help free up “stuck” joints, your spine and joints will be able to adapt to daily stress more effectively.
Don’t get us wrong, bad habits might not be the cause for all your problems, but they can more likely worsen your condition or aggravate your pain!

Chiropractic care keeps you moving! Movement is an important part of staying healthy. After your chiropractic treatments, most people find it easier to move their joints. When the spine is in better
alignment, tension around the joints and muscles can be reduced hence people can enjoy their day with freer movements and minimal discomfort.
You may also notice that you have better awareness of changes to your physical wellbeing. By working closely with a chiropractor to reduce your chronic pain and overall body functioning, you tend to be better able to sense when something is not quite right. For example, you will notice restrictions in your movements much sooner than you would if you struggled with daily stiffness and discomfort.

Chiropractors are trained and equipped with more gentle techniques to help with neuro-musculoskeletal issues in pregnant women, people with osteoporosis and infants.

What can you do outside of a chiropractic office?
While we work together in your appointment, treatment does not usually end there. There are also the things you can do on your own to help your body stay healthy and promote faster recovery.

Some examples are:

  1. Increase water intake to help reduce inflammation in your body
  2. Become aware of your body positions and posture (pay attention to the way you look at your
  3. Not sleeping on your belly as this will create more stress in your neck or pelvis
  4. Keeping up with your prescribed exercises to maintain your flexibility and strength in joints
  5. Take a 5-minute walk after your adjustments to improve your response to chiropractic care

There are so much more a chiropractor can help and advise on your health concerns. Our chiropractors are ready to help anyone that prioritizes good health and a pain free lifestyle.
We are open 7 days a week till late (and even on most public holidays).




Improve Your Health with Chiropractic Care!

You have just visited an allied health professional and your feeling allot better now! But, question is…. Will you be doing anything different to what you were doing before? If your answer is No then it may be ideal to keep an appointment for later on in the month to combat these pain episodes that have been bringing you down!

Pain is a signal coming from the body that alerts us that we are doing something wrong. Hence why we should aim to make changes to combat pain by altering our lifestyle (especially those bad habits!)

Chiropractic Care and How It Can Improve Your Wellbeing?

At The Melbourne Chiropractor we acknowledge that continuous episodes of pain are to be managed over a period of time. This can be done with Chiropractic adjustments, Remedial Massage, Cupping or Dry Needling just to name a few although with allot of these issues exercises and stretches are implemented to help maintain the best of postures and pain free activities overtime. Most commonly patients seek chiropractic care for neck pain, back pain, headaches and repetitive strain injuries/overuse.

Our team of practitioners offer wellness care for those who are willing to take their wellbeing to the next level. This incorporates a plan that helps to reduce reoccurrences of episodes from pain and increase overall mobility and function of the body. Advice on daily living activities such as work posture, lifting biomechanics and sleeping are all things our team look into to improve your wellbeing for many years to come.

Chiropractic Care

What Is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic Care involves the movement of joints back to a normal position where the body is then able to move effectively. Tension is also decreased from the area as tight muscles are relieved and an increase in mobility and flexibility can be seen almost instantly. There are many different techniques that a chiropractor may use including manual adjustments, low force techniques, trigger point therapy, dry needling, prescribe exercises, prescribe stretching or mobilisations in the area of complaint.

Our team of practitioners at The Melbourne Chiropractor strive to get functioning to the best of your abilities. By getting to the bottom of the problem early on it will be easier to tackle the complaint in a shorter period of time.
