What is a Chiropractor?

In Australia, Chiropractors are primary healthcare practitioners, meaning you do not need a referral or to see your GP before visiting one. Chiropractors are most renowned for their work on the spinal column/vertebrae but also are trained and experienced with optimal function of the body. Most Chiropractors will have have new patient consultation including history of presenting issue, physical assessment, neurological, orthopedic and muscular testing, postural assessment and treatment. Depending on the presenting issue a Chiropractor may refer or do their own imaging to diagnose the source of the issue.

Chiropractic treatment will most likely involve Chiropractic adjustments/manipulations, soft tissue therapy, activator, arthrostim, advice of home exercises and stretches. Some chiropractors may use modalities such as therapeutic ultrasound, heat/cold therapy, topical agents taping and more.

Most people know Chiropractors often see patients with back or neck pain,but what most people don’t know is chiropractors may be able to help headaches, dizziness, vertigo, sciatica, discogenic pain and more. Chiropractors are also trained in dietary or supplementation advice however do not prescribe drugs or perform surgery.

Educational requirements for Chiropractors in Australia are currently University trained with a strong emphasis of evidence based practice. Chiropractors are trained alongside Osteopaths and Chinese Medicine students at RMIT and this is currently a 5-year double degree course.

What can Chiropractor Help With?

Low back pain
Typically Chiropractors bread and butter; lower back pain is what Chiropractors are most well know for. Whether it be a dull low back pain ache or an acute sacroiliac joint pain, this is what Chiropractors are known for helping with. Depending on the exact cause a Chiropractor may do manipulation, soft tissue therapy, offer a stabilisation belt, recommend icing, use a flexion distraction table, blocking and more.

Neck pain
Cervical neck adjustments may be useful in reducing neck pain, in conjunction with, or without, pain medication. Assessment of the neck is key in the applying the correct treatment as necks are often very sensitive and specific. Our Melton Chiropractors used a 8 point neck assessment when determining range of motion, orthopaedic and muscles testing to assess your neck. Dependant on the age of the patient, the chiropractor may also determine the required treatment needs to be a more gentle approach such as activator or MET techniques may be used to reduce pain and/or increase range of motion.

Sciatica
Sharp shooting pain down the leg is a symptom we see often at our Melton Chiropractic practice. Sciatica can come from a variety of causes, including: disc irritation, sacroiliac joint dysfunction, piriformis syndrome, or a combination. Sciatica can sometime come out of the blue and other times build up over a long period of time with unexplained reasons. Chiropractic manipulation may help in decreasing pain and improving function in the sacroiliac joint (tail bone area) or lumbar spinal region (low back). Chiropractors may also perform different types of soft tissue therapy to the piriformis to help relieve symptoms.

Headaches
How can Chiropractors help with Headaches? Good question! Chiropractors may be able to help with cervicogenic, tension and/or frontal headaches. Nerves supplying areas of the head or skull may be placed under tension or pressure causing pain in these areas, which may often be brought on by segments of the neck having reduced range of motion or via increased tension of the suboccipital muscles (base of your skull). If you are having headaches but painkillers just aren’t doing the trick, chiropractic could be for you.
