What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic is based upon the understanding that good health is dependent upon a normally functioning nervous system, especially the spine and nerves extending from the spine to all parts of the body.
Our Chiropractors at Wagga Family Chiropractic will take a comprehensive case history then examine the spine to ascertain any injuries, accidents or tension that may be causing irritation to the spinal nerve roots – or influencing proper biomechanics (joint movement). By reducing or eliminating this irritation, the body will operate more efficiently and more comfortably. They may also refer a patient for x-rays, or other investigations if it is considered to be necessary.
We will also assess and give home-care advice – which may include posture advice, home exercises, we may also recommend co-management with other health care providers; depending on your individual requirements.
Pharmaceutical medications are not prescribed. Patients may be treated by gentle manipulation or adjustment of the spine, which are usually performed on a special Chiropractic table and this may be supplemented by massage therapy and stretching techniques. Length and frequency of treatments will vary depending on the degree of severity of the unique problem presented. We will fully discuss you care recommendations prior to treatment. Due to their gentle nature, modern Chiropractic techniques are very safe for all ages – from the young to the elderly.
