Our bodies are pretty clever. They tell us when something isn't working properly through discomfort, pain or lack of movement. But sometimes it can be hard to tell what’s behind these signs.
You may have hurt your back at the gym or lifting something the wrong way. Maybe the repetitive actions you’re performing at work are putting your body under strain? That’s where we come in.
Why visit our Canning Vale chiropractic clinic?
One of the common misconceptions about chiropractors is that we only treat back pain. But what we are actually concerned with is the effect the spine and nervous system has on your general health.
Chiropractors specialise in the workings of the spine and its relationship to the nervous system. The spine holds the spinal cord which connects your brain to the body, meaning if there’s an issue with the spine, many parts of the body can be affected.
Like doctors, chiropractors spend years at university learning how to diagnose, treat and prevent disorders of the spine. We are a little different in that we use alternative treatments to surgery and drug taking.
What do chiropractors do?
Your chiropractor may adjust your spine by applying controlled force or gently moving particular joints. We may also help you with stretches and exercises, give you soft tissue massages, and offer advice on improving your physical activity and day-to-day movements to ensure recovery and prevent further injury.
Chiropractors treat and manage many health issues including:
TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Pain)
Other injuries and disorders of the musculoskeletal system, involving the muscles, ligaments, and joints
Musculoskeletal conditions the extremities (shoulders, elbow, knee and ankle)
