Functional Goals At Your Sunbury Chiropractor:
Here at Wellbeing Chiropractic Sunbury our aim is to help you be the best you can be. Whilst a lot of practitioners focus purely on pain we often find that this doesn’t always truly reflect progression. Our Chiropractors focus on range of motion, functional goals including activities of daily living such as being able to hang out the washing, bending over to tie your shoes, being able to blow your nose or cough without pain. These may not seem like things that are hard to do but for someone who is seeing a Chiropractor for their neck, shoulder or back issues these are things they may struggle with everyday. At your initial consultation we take a thorough history of aggravating factors or activities that you may not be able to achieve. After a period of treatment with you Sunbury Chiropractor this will be reviewed with a questionnaire as regular interval reassessments are performed to tracked your progress.
People often ask why we don’t just focus on pain and we focus on function at Wellbeing Chiropractic Sunbury. The truth is pain is generally a good indicator of how someone is tracking at one specific moment in time however research shows functional tests give the best indication of how someone is progressing through there rehabilitation. This is why people may often get confused, if they don’t have pain one day or for a couple weeks and then the following day they do. Our Sunbury Chiropractor team will work towards you truly understanding your progress and improvement and explaining your current status with your treatment, rehabilitation and wellbeing.

Sunbury is a town located 42 kilometres north-west of Melbourne’s central business district in the Shire of Bulla and is now one of the fastest growing areas in regional Victoria with a population of over 36,000, which is set to rise quiet substantially within the next 10 years. Due to this high population, it provides the residents with many services in food, sport, recreation and even health including Chiropractors.
Sunbury has a rich history surrounding it, especially when it comes to sport. The most important of it is being the home to Rupertswood Mansion. Around 130 years ago, this was the residence in which the England cricket team played against the local cricket team, and after the match, the bails were burned and kept as a trophy. Today, this has lead to one of the greatest sporting rivalries in Australia, the Ashes.
