Chiropractors specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions which are due to mechanical dysfunction of the joints, particularly those of the spine, and their effects on the nervous system. They also work in preventative care for people with long term low back pain or neck pain.
- Your chiropractor will take a complete history on your present complaint and past illness.
- You will also be asked about family history, other treatments you have received, your job and other questions in order to determine the nature of your discomfort.
- An examination will be performed to detect the nature of your complaint.
- After taking a history and completing the examination, the chiropractor will determine if Chiropractic care is right for you.
The spine functions to protect the spinal cord which sends out nerve branches that send and receive signals for every cell in the body. The spine also functions to provide support and structure to the body.
The Chiropractor sees the spine as a series of motor units, each called a spinal joint complex. Each joint complex is composed of 2 vertebra, a disc between, the ligaments, muscles, fascia, blood vessels and nerves.
The Chiropractors' primary goal is to restore motion to a fixated (abnormally locked) joint & to reduce the tension/spasm in surrounding muscles.
They also look at the way the body moves and functions naturally to assess if there are abnormal movement patterns that have been adopted or bad behaviours that have led to the current condition of the spine and surrounding musculature.

Sports injuries are injuries that occur to athletes in sporting events. In many cases, these types of injuries are due to overuse of a part of the body when participating in a certain activity. For example, runner’s knee is a painful condition generally associated with running, while tennis elbow is a form of repetitive stress injury at the elbow (although it does not often occur with tennis players). Other types of injuries can be caused by a hard contact with something. This can often cause a broken bone or torn ligament or tendon.
